Ok, but that doesn't change now that they have DRM. It's not like Walmart, GAME, Eb, Gamestop, etc have digital stores on XBL. To my knowledge, Microsoft is still the exclusive digital distribution center, so there is no competition (i.e. Steam, Uplay, Origin). Just because you buy a "digital" disc on sale at say, Walmart, for $30 doesn't mean MS will knock the online price down.
No to mention, if we went full digital, we'd lose a lot of the competition because those aforementioned game stores would most likely lose enough business they'd close down, and we'd have less avenues of competition.
I know what you're getting at, but "Sharing" and "No game discs" isn't enough of an incentive to give warm welcome to the DRM they were proposing.
