As far as I can tell, this is probably not great news for the industry. If it's upheld and brought to other platforms, the number of subscription-based services that will crop up in place of the old status quo is probably pretty high. I'm not sure about anyone else, but I don't really want to pay a subscription cost for every game that I own.

Subscription-based "games as a service" platforms like Stadia, Apple Arcade, or EA Play are also not a good solution. These give the publishers power to revoke your ability to play a game at any time, with no recourse from you. Favorite game has a low player count? Too bad for you, we're not going to support it anymore and you now have no way of playing it at all. I don't think this will end well for the digital market.
