Question about digital vs disc

#1Kosmo240985Posted 10/22/2013 10:34:53 AM
Now i know that if you digitally download a game on the xbone you'll be able to swap quickly from game to game.

now, if you buy a disc based game, will you still be able to install it and switch between all the games in your library?

or will only digital games be available for the fast swap.

Do you mean install from disc and then remove the disc but still be able to play the installed game? Because I don't believe you can do that.

that's what i figured.

it looks like all the single player games i'll buy disc based and multiplayer digitally so that when friends wanna play online while im playing solo i can switch fast to the game.

This was originally a feature and it was awesome. Complainers got rid of it though. They don't like connecting to the internet to authenticate their purchases, thus, making this a very bad business decision.

Yeah, still have to have the disc in the tray.

It's the reason I'm going all digital.

The biggest issue with this was that they didn't allow for disk-based authentication at all. I seriously doubt that there would have been any complaints had disk-based authentication been noted as a secondary means for those times when you do not have access to the internet.

This. Though apparently MS couldn't figure that out.

If you think through it, it's impossible. I'll let you think through it yourself since it's already been posted about 8 million times.
