Games Sony just won the console war for this generation. Not only is the PS4 going to be cheaper, Sony's CEO gloated on stage last night at E3 with the biggest possible grin as he detailed that all that nonsensical DRM crap that Microsoft is pulling, like blocking used games sales and stuff like that? Yeah, Sony's PS4 will have none of that. Sony even made an instructional video to explain how sharing games works.

Should we still be buying discs in 2013?


Just because the technology is there does not mean it is in the best interest of consumers to fully adopt it.

Have a look at Steam where $60 games can be found cheaper on Amazon despite the latter distribution method having much higher costs.

Giving publishers pricing control by taking away retail and used game sales pressure is a bad idea. They won't "pass on the savings" just because their costs are lower. This type of Libertarian thinking is extremely naive.
