    I’d love to see the caselaw they’re going to cite for this cause of action.

    I have a hard time seeing this being successful.

    Great. I have a disc PS5 as well, but there are also instances in which a physical copy of a rare game can cost hundreds (or thousands) & the digital copy on PSN is $5 bucks. There's also PSN sales all the time and I've gotten tons of games for less than a used hard copy would have cost. Tons.

    Yeah their sales just dont make any sense either unless its a seasonal or game company deals. You'll see games from 2017-2018 still at $60 while a 1yr old game gets a discount. Digital ps5 owners are screwed- imagine not being able to buy cheaper used games.

    As I've stated above, I've bought TONS of games on PSN for less than a used physical copy.

    This makes no sense... It's like a car dealership was being sued for selling their own brand of cars. This is madness.

    i think you both misunderstood

    i quote:-

    "digital PlayStation games, which are significantly higher than their physical counterparts sold in a competitive retail market"

    its about money.

    So they're selling the games digitally for too much?

    Honestly this really doesn't make sense for a litigation case... they aren't obligated to sell the voucher codes to retailers... heck they are lucky that they receive physical copies of games with how the digital age is being pushed so hard. A digital storefront is a digital storefront for a reason.

    yeah I was being a littler humorous :) I think I get it
    the problem is that you can only buy digital games through sony/psn themselves (apparently)
    unlike nintendo where you can buy digital games from other places - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08VPR4K97

    This looks like Sony being sued because they won't allow someone like GameStop to sell codes for games on PSN.

    So, like, the only place you can buy legit games for your discless ps5 is Sony. I'd be pissed about that if I was anyone other than Sony, too.
