If it's done, just release the damn thing. It's not like we're waiting for the discs to hit stores for both to release the same day. Hell, ordering digital should grant you early access over people buying the disc anyway as an incentive to go digital.
Xbox One dis-Kinected 6/9/14. Let that be a lesson to people. Vote with your wallet.

I went on the exact same rant to a friend when I saw it sitting on my HDD and realized its digital only.

Change the preorder bonus to "first 30 days of purchase" and bam!

This and Blazblue are my games for the summer, Batman Asylum was fun but couldn't get into City so will wait for Knight to hit $20.

Gimme dmc4 nooooow :(

Because street dates still have to be met -- it doesn't matter if it's physical or digital. Contracts between supplier/manufacture/developer still have to be upheld which typically involves a street date. Otherwise, parties involved that violated part(s) of the contract can be held accountable and legal action could be taken.

Contrary to Internet belief, this goes for Sony, Valve, and Microsoft being the digital supplier, not just brick and mortar shops.

That said, once whomever breaks release date, everyone else is free to release the form of media themselves.

To that I would say, "You nor I have the details of what each individual contract entitles to, but it's always possible".
