I personally agree. Not everyone has an internet connection. Developers would actually be narrowing their audience if they only did digital distribution. I like knowing that weather I have internet of not, I can still enjoy some of my favorite games. Sports games are the best example. You might want to take Madden/Fifa to a get-together and that person may not have internet. IF it were digital, you would be out of luck. Yet physical media isn't reliant on an internet connection to play.
