When you buy digital, you never own the game. You own a temporary license to play the game until the provider decides to stop support.

Would hardly call any of this news worthy. If people dont like it, dont buy digital. (and not a dig on Sony here - its just digital in general)

This is certainly newsworthy. This is about game availability, not ownership of the games that we've already bought as we can still download those.

There's plenty of digital-only games (indie games can't afford a large physical release, for example) and DLC that will be lost, and digital is the easiest way to get a game in the most amount of hands.

It will only disappear if you don't buy them. And you have had years to buy it. But of course nobody will buy anything from those stores when they can put that money on either a last gen game thats on sale, new games or a subscription service...while also complaining they don't have time to play their current games as well!
