Question from TeamChaosTheory:
With digital becoming the norm over physical copies of games, do you think the incentive for big box stores to carry consoles will dwindle? The manufacturers (sony,microsoft, nintendo) generally sell the console at a minimal profit, or even at a loss and get the stores to not mark up the consoles too high, they make most of their money on the games. So, basically less physical games in the wild. less profit for retailers, how will they react in the future or next gen even? Hopefully that wasn’t too confusing lol

Piggyback off this question with PUBG physical release:
