I have a few questions regarding digital games this generation.

1)Are digital games going to be far faster than last generation compared to disc versions or do they still have that really limited and slow connection to the HDD?
2)Did MS ever announce when Digital copies would be available? Are games assured to be released 12AM on the day of release or is it up to the developers?
3)Can MS also play while downloading like the PS4 can?
4)Does digital copies charge taxes? I know XBLA games using points did not.

I really wish we still had the DRM/24H check in place. The family sharing plan + being able to sell your digital games had me and my group of friends/family pretty stoked.

As I was going up the stairs I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today. I wish, I wish he'd go away.

Buying all digital next generation except maybe for some games I have to import.

1. I don't see why digital would be faster than disc delivery since they both require installation to the HDD.

2. MS said digital delivery of games will be available same day though I don't know if it's restricted to 12 AM in your time zone.

3. Yes, you can play after you have downloaded a certain percentage of the game

4. No idea about taxes
