Acting like this is new or different is stupid.

Digital distribution has always been more efficient than physical. You can view the extra wait time as a 'physically ownership tax.'

Additionally, you need more patience.

I'm guessing to avoid early adopters trading in the disc once they get bored with it. With games like this it's probably not a bad idea.

I think it's a joint test between MS and the publisher to see if releasing it early digitally is a way to increase sales and move gamers towards all digital.

The game is obviously ready. Why couldn't they put it on a disc and ship ot to stores.

You seem to not understand so I'll try another way, mmkay?

You.
Don't.
Have.
To.
Buy.
It.
Digital.

But choosing not to means you will have to wait.


Simple enough?

they might have made an error when pressing the discs and/or submitted the wrong build in the first place. it's unlikely they would do this on purpose, and blatantly step on the toes of retailers.
