GameStop Executive Advocates for Mandatory Disc Drives in Gaming Consoles

Cohen applauded Apple’s recent transition to USB-C from its exclusive Lightning port, labeling it a “major win for consumers.” He then emphasized that just as consumers have invested in physical video games, game consoles should be required to include disk drives.

It’s widely understood that Sony appears to be gradually phasing out disc drives from their game consoles. Persistent rumors suggest that an optional disc drive accessory could soon be introduced, along with future PS5 models that lack an integrated disc drive.
