This poll is now closed.
There are discussions back and forth about this subject so I thought I would put it to the test with a poll to see what the majority think.

I'll amend a statement I made earlier about all-digital gaming.

I'll accept all-digital gaming when:

100 TB is the standard in any console.
Everyone has blazing fast Internet and no soft or hard monthly data caps, throttling/bottle-necking, etc.
Standard price of games drops considerably.
There is absolutely no physical alternative.

Everything you say sounds good except 100tb might be out of range technically for years to come. 10 or 20tb would do it though.

I would have to be able to buy them at retail, like you can with points. I'm talking cards with codes, not discs.

I like getting my Best Buy MyRewards points that I can then use to buy ANYTHING in the store. Plus I have the GamersClub membership which also gets 20% off NEW games, so every XBOne title I've bought has cost no more than $48 and I get 1.25 points for every dollar spent.

I don't want to lose those benefits by buying direct from Microsoft.

ALL games should have a Single Player mode. I can always guarantee I want to play when I turn on my system. I can't guarantee others will at the same time.

I like them because I can legally import them w/o taxes and tolls to the EU and pay in dollars which makes games on launch day 20% cheaper than retail (they cost about 48EUR)

That's another bad thing about digital games, they need to be a lot cheaper than disc because you should be able to hold the game in your hands for that much money.

New game, on disc: $60

New game, all digital: $60

A price drop of at least $20 might help a lot.

Bigger hard drive, an OS that was less clunky and slow, and competitive digital pricing
