Rumors of the Death of Physical Video Games Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Variety’s Matt Paprocki reports: “The record labels still make CDs and the movie studios still make DVDs, so yes, Id say its too soon to abandon discs for consoles, writes Michael Pachter, managing director at Wedbush Securities when asked about Microsofts plans to drop a physical disc drive from their latest Xbox One model. The all-digital Xbox One is the first major console not to include an option for physical media.

I suppose its up to the console manufacturers, but my guess is that the video game publishers would push back if discs were dropped. The majority of sales are still on disc, so its not even a close call, Pachter continues.
