Digitally...I'm started to get annoyed with changing game discs lol


This. What I'd really like is the option to rip (or install) the game to hard drive. I'm assuming this would be technically possible; the question being would Nintendo actually implement something like that.

"I don't wanna get up and take 5 seconds to swap my game disc" in the same league as dying from cancer? "

Of course not. But people in first world countries have both big problems and little problems. And people in third world countries have both big problems and little problems.

Everybody, all over the world, whatever their circumstances, will experience both big problems and little problems. That's why the phrase "first world problems" is kind of offensive. It assumes a fundamental difference between us and them that is not true.

Wait..swapping discs?
I thought the Wii U used a modified Blu Ray or some similar high capacity disc. Why the hell do you need to swap discs?

To take out one game and put in a different one?

If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue

....people are complaining about swapping games over now? Really?
I thought they were saying the game came on two disks, like the first four worlds were on one disk and the last four were on the second.

If they're just complaining about swapping games, oh god I fear for the future. We really are going to turn into the floating media babies from Wall-E

Of course you want to purchase a physical copy of a game. Never get a digital title unless it is a small XBLA/PSN/WiiWare title.

I only trade in games if I have another way to play them, like trading in Skyrim on PS3 because I have it on PC now, or playing DS games on a flash cart. Otherwise I keep them.

Go digital, it won't hurt.

Yea. Stick with physical. You can find Mario wii u a whole lot cheaper plus if your console breaks you won't be out of a $59.99 game too.

I still love my old Nintendo consoles and it saddens me to think that with all this network connectivy, that in the future I won't be able to just turn these consoles on and have the games work.

What happens if you buy digital and the console breaks and Nintendo is no longer servicing them? If that happens with SNES I can just get a used SNES and all my games will still work with it.
