Suppose all of a sudden next gen console games became more expensive in physical form. I'm talking about a $5-$10 difference for brand new games on launch day of the game, and $5-$20 price difference in about 6 months and so forth with the dd being cheaper. Would you still buy physical copies or the cheaper dd vrsions?

Well I rarely buy games at launch, so I have nothing to worry about.

The concept of ownership is a tough one, I know.

Technically you don't literally own the games you play now. You own a license to play them. You literally own the disc it was printed on. You literally own the case. But you don't literally own the game.

The same could be said about lots of stuff you own. It isn't quite so open and shut as you think.

For 10 bucks less per game, I would switch to digital. I used to collect games, but I haven't for years.

I already buy my PC games digital. As much as I like owning a physical copy of a game, at the same time I don't buy many games anymore. As long as I'm not severely limited by buying Digital Download (for example, not being able to transfer the license to a new console or etc. etc. etc.) I'll consider it.

You literally own one copy of the game. Not the license.
Licenses only come into effect when talking about digital distribution.
