No, this has been a thing for years and years on many different platforms.
- mario vs donkey kong tipping stars was just a download code in a box, for both 3ds and wii u versions

- cuphead physical copies for xbo are just a download code, but i think that one is getting a proper physical release once the dlc is out.
minecraft vita was just a code in a box too.
