Why even have discs?

Probably to address those with bandwidth issues. Also, many consumers aren't going to be immediately willing to download all their games; they may prefer having a disc. It's certainly more convenient if you need to bring it somewhere.

As others have said, it is also part of the transition to digital only.

If you sell a disc, you trick people into believing that they're buying a product as opposed to licensing a time-limited service to use something.

they say xbox one is the new water cooler so you'll need coasters for your drinks right?

...Uh...

People don't use coasters around a water cooler.


And, to answer the topic question: Cast a wider net. Some people only buy discs. MS wants their money too.
