Are physical game discs/cartridges officially going the way of the dodo?
“So here’s something strange: It’s been nearly 10 months since the PS5 launched and I have yet to buy or even hold a physical PS5 game. I have plenty of PS5 games, sure, but they are all digital.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania might be the most important movie on the MCU Phase 4 slate.
“Currently in production, the threequel will be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe title to feature a full-fledged appearance from Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), following the character’s quasi-introduction in the Loki Season 1 finale.

In this case, the cast was performing Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Let’s Get Loud.”

Still, if it’s going to happen to anyone, it might as well be Kanye West because the tale of Donda’s tortured release never ends, just as it never began. Time is a flat, vinyl copy of Donda.”
