The One Reason Why Digital Beats Physical And It Isn't Close

Game sharing. I did not realize this until today. Did you guys know you can share your digital library with one friend? You could cut the cost of game ownership by 50% and Microsoft even condones it:

An artist is a creature driven by demons. He dont know why they choose him and hes usually too busy to wonder why.

While I have gone all digital this generation, I'm not going to say what works best for anyone. Clearly, digital doesn't (yet) offer a resale option and not everyone will have someone to "share" with so the retail cost at discounted prices may be a better option.

Used games are compelling to some too.

I am hoping there is a better sharing option in the future.

You can only swap between friends 3 times but you can download each other's games an unlimited amount of times. It's not a year any way it's like three months. It's a great feature.

you can share your digital library with a friend. Set your console as their home and their console as your home, and you both have access to all your digital games.

You buy your games on his console with your GT and he buys his games on yours with his GT. To access your games you need to be signed into Live but can access his games at any time. That's how it worked on 360.

I love being all digital. Hopefully I will never buy another disc game again. Can't wait until X1 Slim model without a disc drive.
