Of all the bad decisiions MS has made this one would have made the console DOA. Cant believe it wasnt until the last minute before they changed it.

Would you have bought XB1 if it was discless?

Considering how well psp go sold, we're not ready for digital only.

Considering DRM is a travesty against consumers, I'd say we aren't ready for diskless.

If consoles ever goes digital only, then PC gaming will win. Why?

1.) No Backwards Compatibility issues.
2.) Cheaper prices for games (especially on Steam).
3.) You can make graphics better (there are tons of mods).
4.) There are always tons of PC players, all over the world (more than just America).
5.) You don't have to worry about paying for online multiplayer (& online gaming is far superior on PC than on consoles).
6.) You don't have to worry about being tied down to one manufacturer, nobody owns PC's.
7.) You can always upgrade your hardware.

I can go on & on.

No. I like to sell games when I get done with them.
Don't Blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't Blink. Good Luck.

Are you sure that's not a myth?

I think Sony argued a good point, most next gen games are going to be 50+ gigs and not everyone has the net speed to download games that big on a regular basis. Not to mention problems with hard drive sizes ("I was going to buy a movie but I didn't have any space for it!"). I think the disc-less rumors were just concepts being thrown around or bargaining chips to try and cut deals with the used game industry. I doubt they were ever really serious about it.

I'd be cool.

I was contemplating on going digital only with PS4 but I decided nah, what's the use?
