Unfortunately the prime discounts are only for disc or boxed versions. They are trying to push the discs because digital is taking over. Companies likes Sony and Microsoft still need the support of retailers. And retailers don't want the disc versions to go extinct.

The disk versions do not qualify for the "Play Anywhere" concept though do they?

I can understand them, but it sucks when i want it for PC and digital's the only way :P But i bought it from the US Amazon store, which is still $30 cheaper than the Danish Microsoft store

That is the rub. The disc can be traded in or resold. But you lose the perks and convenience of a download code.

I usually buy the digital version of a PS4 game that I'll be going back to a lot for multiplayer, or extended play. Battlefield, Madden and Project Cars for example. Games where I'm going to play the campaign and move on I'll go for the disc. Dishonored and Tomb Raider are good examples. With newly released PC games getting the disc is the way to go if the price is lower. You end up getting the Steam, Origin, or Uplay version anyway.

Now that Amazon has the pre-orders and new releases for 20% off my system has been thrown into chaos! I got the disc version of NHL 17 because it was $12 cheaper at launch. I'll get may ass up to swap a disc because my 'cheap bastard' tendency overrides my 'lazy asshole' tendency.

If you haven't played this game, you owe it to yourself to do so.
