Nobody is actually naive enough to think they’re actually going to make a worthwhile profit off these at launch right? $50 profit maybe at best.

I don't get why people would not just pay the $130 difference and get the Disc Based version (if they can get their hands on one) as well.

I mean benefits of Physical Disc version are the follows over Digital Only version of PS5:

1- You can still get all the games Digitally as the Digital only version...in case the Disc Drive fails at some point in the future.
2- You can Sell / Trade / Lend your Games on Disc....you can't do anything like that with the Digital version of the game. So you can actually make some money back on a Game you do not want to keep or have played through....but can't do it with a Digital Game purchase. This seems like the most obvious reason...why Disc version trumps the Digital Only version.
3- You can watch some DVDs/Blurays and Ultra HD Blurays on the Disc Based version....especially for people who are movie fans and like having a collection of Movies on Discs in their collection as well....can't do it with a Digital only version.

Maybe, at one point some 3rd Party manufacturer may find a way to hack the Digital Only version of the PS5 in the future and allow owners (who regret getting the Digital version of PS5) to connect an External Ultra HD Bluray Disc Drive to it...making it function just like the Disc Based version of the PS5? But that's a pipe-dream at this point.
