scratch that disc, and you're done...a file corrupting when downloading straight from a service like Steam or Origin(well origin is a bad example b/c EA is fucking terrible), is highly unlikely.

I don't mind it with the PC seeing as how PC games are becoming something of an endangered species in the local game shop.

However they can fuck right off with bringing it to consoles seeing as how it would be a bitch to return if I wasn't satisfied with it.

Re: Disc Format Is Probably Going To Die For Games Within The Next Decade Or So

I used to be all for physical copies of everything. All the "feels more like you own it" and "I like to read the little manual and feel it up with my virgin fingers" bullshit. In time I've been through everything which establishes the superiority of digital media, so now I kinda cannot give a fuck about physical. Alright, I still cherish my movie collection and must own every album of my absolute favorite artists/bands, but games I prefer not on a disc because of obvious reasons. One of them being how they just simply run better.

You're just too physical, physicaaaaaaa-oohhhhaaaall, to meeee-eee...

Know the song and I'll have your babies.

Only issue I have with Downloads is it is extremely limited by the ISP and its DL limit

That is very true. We can only download 5 games a month off of Steam before we reach 80% of our download limit for the month. Luckily, right now I have the college internet to bootleg and in tough times, my parents live a highway intersection away, respectively. This is all for Steam on a laptop though... Its going to be a lot harder to do with gaming consoles.

ISP's are going to make a killing.
