The current trend of physical discs not containing the full compliment of data, and you still have to dl the rest… then it makes sense to have a system without a disc drive strictly for game downloads and media streaming.
Less moving parts means lower production costs which in turn could mean increased budgets for development. Seeing as both sony and MS are evolving towards the PC market, then it should be no surprise for them to fully adopt the Steam model of game installs and play.
Who really goes out and buys PC games on disc anymore? Some do but it’s nowhere near like it was 10 years ago.
