A system like the Vita, where all games are downloadable - some are still cart/disc based. When you buy a game in the shop you don't buy a playable game like you used to. Instead you get a cached backup of the game that is installed to your HDD and the game added to your account.
This limits disc games to one person, which is what some publishers want, it decentralises your game collection, games still have shelf exposure, it readies players for a future that is completely downloaded.
And do not underestimate the scale of the second hand industry. I used to only buy games new, but I've been forced into it a few times due to rare games I realised they're not bad (especially for cart and PS3 games (tougher than DVD)). Where I live there are more franchised second hand game shops than new.
Maybe if everyone who'd ever been close to you had died, you'd be sarcastic, too.
