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.


Honestly, moving to digital so none of the manufacture, packaging, shipping, etc. of discs and all the emissions and waste that go along with them have to happen at all seems like a win-win to me.

You think the servers that host and provide the games for download are free? I would be willing to bet in the long run they emit more carbon than pressing discs.
