Because disc cases and HD-DVD/Blu-rays/etc get expensive and they don't exactly have a massive budget to work with.

It requires way more planning and money for a studio as small as Playtonic, which was the initial thought. However, even with Team17, a physical release would push back the release of the game itself. And they don't want that (me neither). I guess that I'll come eventually, but not on day one (as of yet).

If the game comes out before the Nintendo NX, maybe it'd be a good idea to get a physical NX version out. But other than that, I don't see a physical version (except PC) being practical or profitable.

I would buy it for NX or PC.
If the game sales well I think a physical release could be happen later.
But I hope there will be a real nice retro manual and some extras.
Just a DVD and a case is a bit too less for me...
