New XBONE 'physical' copies out now, includes digital code in a minature case for both PC/Bone in one package

Recommended Posts

very worrying for physical collectors, also solidifies xbox as a non-serious/joke platform and illegitimate console option

They were already doing this with cardboard. At least a mini-case is novel.

That's actually kind of neat to be honest, it's better than the little game cards you can buy.

I'd say it might actually waste less because the chances of people keeping this is higher than some card which will immediately go into the bin

Yeah. I'm sure it's not a huge subset of people, but I can see somebody who prefers a digital copy to avoid disc swapping or whatever but also wouldn't mind having something to showoff in a collection. I mean Aza does just display empty cases and chuck the discs into a storage container. :ben:

 

Like I have never have and would never buy the digital games on cards, which is whatever since they're clearly meant for kids or people who just prefer cash transactions. I still probably won't buy these, but it gets me a lot closer to the possibility so other than environmental concerns I think it's a win. I also think it looks much better. Fuck the card walls.

My thoughts exactly.

Makes sense. Most retailers probably see the Xbox section as a waste of space. Now Microsoft can plead “but but look! We only take up a tiny fraction of your store now, plz keep stocking our games ;( “
