So it's a good... what, 6 months or so in for the new consoles? Are there any cool benefits yet for digital games?

Getting robbed of your money is a benefit.

#1: BC is dead, so don't expect anything you download to be playable in 6 years. Zero lessons learned from iTunes or Steam.
#2: No resale value.
#3: Run out of space quick because genius MS won't let users replace the HDD but only included less than 500GB in a generation where 50GB are not going to be uncommon.
#4: MS has more control over prices. When has that ever not worked out for consumers?

Oh wait, did you say benefits? Well...

#1: You don't have to get your lazy ass up to change discs.

That's it.

Ease of use and usually a cheaper price. You'd have to be a big baby to buy a digital game for $60, hth.

Outside of a flash/PS+ sale, I've never seen a digital copy of a console game that I can't find cheaper physical. Doesn't even matter what console.

Well yeah, that's why you wait for those sales before buying anything.

This guy sums it up. Idiot Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo don't have a damn clue.

#3 makes no sense since you have to install games no matter what, MS is allowing for external support which is better then swapping,

now on to the others

#1, I am not buying a new console to play old games,

#2, I don't plan on selling my games back this Gen

#4, Gaming is not a cheap hobby, although I wish MS offered cheap prices like sony, they are in a business to make money, Maybe one day UNICEF will get into the gaming business but until then don't expect MS to be charitable
