And I reiterate....what would have been (opinion)

A recent interview with Tony Bartel in regards to Gamestop's inevitable leap to the digital era on Engadget has raised a few eyebrows. Its not so much that during the interview process that he vaguely makes hints at an "all digital" GameStop future, but how he goes on to say "With both Sony and Microsoft committing to a friendly used disc-based games policy for their respective black boxes, GameStop's been given a temporary buffer from the inevitable, allowing it additional time to feel out the digital way forward with a serendipitous mobile crutch." So with that being said, what would have happened if Microsoft next gen console remained unchanged causing what was believed to be the end of disc based used/traded games?
