Correct terminology is 'Could NOT care less'. Learn English!

So that you don't have to download dozens of gigabytes.

Microsoft can have their cake and eat it to?

Their marketing research likely shows most gamers aren't ready to switch to digital only... so now they can sell discs, but still have all the benefits of digital.

so their servers aren't bogged down with people downloading 20+ gb games
If gameshark wasn't invented... games wont be as popular anymore

There really isn't a point. In fact I wonder if the system is even capable of running anything off a disc. Seems like it's only there to read the disc for an install and authentication.

If I read the press release correctly, it doesn't even say it reads Blu Ray movies - it says it "plays Blu Ray movies and other downloadable media". The fact that it lumps Blu Ray into downloads is pretty telling imo.

to trick people that don't know better
We're nothing like God. Not only do we have limited powers, we sometimes are driven to become the devil himself.
