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.
the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. ~ Anton Ego

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.
