Yes, but the disk will contain the same game as the download one, so not sure why you might want to buy that again? :)

Maybe he wants to gift it to somebody?

Or he wants to support the poor CD manufacturing industry?

Or the postal services?

ROFL well to be honest I bought some games in retail in last years but my games are usually under 100mb so I really don't see any advantage in buying a physical copy, maybe the gift (even if nowadays you can gift games with email or downloads).

Well, I just bought Portal 2 on Steam and it is downloading as we speak from the net....

As it seems, it will still be downloading long after we stopped speaking... the download speed currently is something like 40 KB/s (I have approx. 1.2 MB/s max), the game has approx. 10 GB or so.... I don't even want to calculate how many weeks I'll wait until I have it fully on my disc.... I bet Loren will be on the market before I have Portal 2.... grrr.

So I would prefer a disc anytime... but then again, 100 MB is a tiny bit smaller than 10 GBs, I'll have to admit.

Lol I hate that too. In past year I bought some old games from gog.com and I really don't think we need tons of Gb of content to make a fun game, but sadly that's how all the new games work!
