Not just the disc drive (Gaming)

A cheaper discless option, while ultimately bad for the future of games, is something that a lot of people clearly value. My opposition to a discless console has nothing to do with price. So I am not sure why I am not allowed to dislike the price points.

As always, I'll remind you that your opposition to diskless/digital has nothing to do with Discs either. It's opposition to DRM, which is not intrinsically linked to Digital console games, merely historically so. Since I see going digital as inevitable and full or benefits as well of losses, I will hope that people will encounter their new first-sale-doctrine-free future and apply pressure for change. Then again, people seem to love streaming video, so…

Consoles by their very nature have DRM. Otherwise… they are just computers.
