Not just the disc drive (Gaming)

I think the manufacture, packaging, shipping, warehousing, promotional material, and payouts to channel partners ads up to far more than you think it does, but even so, if you don't think making digital $5 cheaper would change a lot of behavior…I disagree.

Likely not, since physical versions drop in price way more than that. New if you wait a little while (sometimes not even that long), and used immediately.

If that were really most people, games wouldn't sell on day 1. Everyone would just wait for a price drop. So we're not talking about gamers willing to wait... we're talking about day 1 buyers. And I'd bet money that Vortech is right, amongst that group.
