If M$ really believed in going all digital, why have a blu-ray drive?

Surely, someone can easily download/access a movie as easily as they can a game.

...Because their games are on Blu-ray discs? In their originally announced system you would have still been able to buy disc games...

umm because the Xbox 1 is a media device and bluray is the current standard for movies and media on disc...

They needed retail outlets to sell it. Stores make more money on game and accessory sales then they do off of system sales. Without games MS would have to take a bigger lose on the consoles or run the risk of stores not selling it.
The iPad, iPod and iPhone are different because off their popularity. People will buy a new one either every year or every other year. The same can not be said about a video game console.

Prolly because digital is the FUTURE. Not the PRESENT. The format will eventually be universally adopted, even by Sony, but I'm guessing MS didn't wanna jump to that format so quickly. People aren't ready for such an abrupt change.
