Now let's look at this a different way.
Sony does not Yet have a digital only console option and yet they now sell more of their games digitally than they do physical.
pocket-lint.com/gam…les

Unlike Sony MS do Not force you to buy Full digital games from their store at their prices, MS allow full game codes at whatever price the retailer's etc choose to sell them for .

Gamepass Ultimate gives Xbox Gamepass, PC Gamepass and Gold for the price of Gold alone (plus a one time £2 charge) for up to 3 years . (Not option like this for other consoles)

Game sharing halfs the price of digital games.

You seem to have the oposite view when talking about Ultra HD films vs Rental Streaming.

The reason why MS are more lax at the moment, is mainly down to them playing catchup to Sony.

They are testing the water for their next console, they simply want to kill off the second hand market. It's plain to see..

Once that happens, digital content will have no competition and you either pay the price, or go without. Since physical won't exist.

The idea of digital is great, and a natural progression. It works fine on the PC, since the platform isn't locked down, and there is still plenty of competition.

The issue is that you curently lose significant freedom with your purchases, ie.. not able to sell your game once you're finished with it. Or even gift the game to a friend, and even renting games would be controlled by the console manufacturer. That isn't good news for customers, and things need to change before switching to digital becomes much fairer for everyone.

You just ignored everything I said and replied with the now standard "Digital is bad" reply.

Microsoft and Sony have both announced their next console's will come with a Disc Drive.

Both the head of Microsoft studios Mat Booty and executive vice-president of Gaming at Microsoft Phil Spencer have made it VERY clear in all the media outlets that the next Xbox will have a Disc Drive which I'm sure you already know and choose to ignore for whatever reason.

Tell me, which console company offers the most options to use non digital media in their console ?

No, i didn't ignore it.. i started by commenting about what you claim microsoft let you do different from Sony..

MS allow full game codes at whatever price the retailer's etc choose to sell them for
- I'm not entirely sure thats 100% accurate, but either way if they do currently it's because there is competition from physical media. If that goes, this will surely change.

If MS take the lead in the next gen console, you can expect Gamepass ultimate to go up in price, or change since they will have the upper hand. It's just the way things work! - Then it will be Sony offering more games on their Plus service, or other things to persuade you to switch platforms.

Also, those Sony stats are likely skewed by Plus purchases, remember that Plus has been running far longer than games with gold, and even i have a huge digital back catalogue much larger than i have physical! and I don;t buy anything digital other than the odd retro game now and again, these plus games are classed as 'purchases' so that doesn;t surprise me at all, yet doesn't tell the whole tale does it!

Besides, I don't mean the very next console that they have already confirmed. I'm talking about the one after that. The idea is that they phase out discs entirely eventually, and this console is paving the way for that.

You know just about everything you say is just speculation and I have heard it all before, what was the last one? "when they release Xbox Gamepass they will put all the retail shops out of business" Never happened .

MS and Sony are both greedy corporations that want your money and nothing else, if they wanted to put retail out of business they could simply even just temporary drop the price of digital Games to match retail prices, but that would be a bit stupid without offering the retailer's something to replace it considering half of their console sales, addons etc are sold from retail now wouldn't it.

If you was talking about Google Stadia which only has one aim you might make more sense.

Those stats are from Sony and are for the 'One quarter' of the year it has nothing to do with how far back ps plus or anything else goes.

So when you originally said "They are testing the water for their next console, they simply want to kill off the second hand market. It's plain to see." You didn't actually mean the next console !

"MS allow full game codes at whatever price the retailer's etc choose to sell them for - I'm not entirely sure thats 100% accurate"
It's entirely accurate.

You obviously didn't know the answer to my question as to which of the Three console manufacturers allow the most ways to use Non Digital in their consoles so I will tell you,. It's Microsoft's Xbox one S and Xbox One X.

It's obvious speculation based on a Monopoly being created on a closed platform, and Microsofts past history, whilst your points are just plain wrong.. The retailers can't just set whatever price they feel like, Microsoft will want x amount, the retailer has a very small margin on digital products, when compared to physical.... i was being polite, but as you're being a bit of a bell I will pick you up on that now.

Your other question was added in an edit, and what does that prove anyway? we're talking about digital only consoles and Microsoft 'testing the water' - next generation may launch with a disc based console, (only because Sony are doing so). However, you WILL see a digital only version of the next xbox at some point. And yeah thats speculation again, but obvious.

And finally, where on that report that you linked states the period it relates to?

From another site..
“It should be noted that this statistic does not include games included with a PlayStation Plus membership. While that is something that could ultimately skew the result, that has no bearing on this. These are games that were purchased by consumers by their own volition.”

The report relates to the last quarter Sony released.
gamesindustry.biz/art…ent

Sony are only releasing a Disc version in their next console because they know Microsoft are sure to do it after outdoing them by including an Ultra HD Blu-Ray drive and giving people more options to buy physical.

My question proved that MS were looking Less at Digital sales than Sony in the fact that they offer more physical options than Sony and let's not forget Sony also introduced the first Digital only Streaming service, make no mistake if PS Now would of been a huge hit a digital only console would of followed.the last part is of course speculation but obvious.
I suppose MS do have the digital only EA Access service, actually I just remembered Sony now have that as well (Despite it not offering good value )

MS accept full game digital game codes no matter what price they are sold by outlets, unlike Sony who force you to buy them from their store only at their prices.

Not convinced that Microsoft 'outdid' them, since this apparent slide towards digital which you appear to champion also includes streaming, as opposed to purchasing physical 4k bluray discs.

And the sale of DVD and Bluray has halved over the last 5 years according to a report. arstechnica.com/gad…ys/

And 4k bluray is still very much a niche market.

Microsoft added that drive hoping it would have the same impact that the PS3 had with bluray, and it failed miserably i'm afraid. Since the majority are moving over to Netflix and other streaming services instead, and people didn't really go crazy buying the Xbox One S for the 4k bluray drive. Many still didn't even have 4k TV's

Besides, none of this was my point,,my whole argument is based on the fact that, once we move to entirely digital we also remove any competition from physical media.

Currently, we enjoy frequent discounted digital games, but i am not convinced it will continue at this same level once physical has been wiped out. Yes, it's speculation, but it makes perfect sense. Digital has to compete, or it wouldn't have a chance of overtaking physical media. This is how they get everyone on board, then once physical is abolished. They have license to charge what they please

With regards to digital codes from outlets, as i said above..Sony only very recently made this change, and Microsoft will follow suit, they aren't yet because they're behind Sony. And are more relaxed with some things. That will change though if they take the lead next generation. You can bet your life on it.

This isn't a Sony vs Microsof debate anyway, if they had their own way. Both Sony and Microsoft would have us paying full price for all our digital games, all sold on their own digital platform. Removing all third party retailers and rentals, and sucking up the profits themselves,
