Digital or Physical: How do you prefer your Video Games?

Given a choice, physical.

That said, I wouldn't care if they went all-digital. I just like consistency. I hate owning some games on disc and some digitally.

While I prefer disc, I buy whichever is cheapest or most convenient. Also, Bing points have allowed me to get many GoD titles for free.

As a person who recently has their home invaded and every game, movie, and albun stolen, I'm will alway prefer digital over physical.

Home owners insurance.

I have multiple portible memory devices, so backing up my digital content many times is no issue.

Those have finite lifespans.

And how many items have been delisted? Two? Three? And how many of them were things of note?

Try more like 50+.....

Actually, I did have Insurance, but the things I can't replace is the stuff that out of print or really rare.the insurance asks when you purchased and checks the current MRSP then deducts for how long you've had it. Discs are subject to the same problems as storage units except for the "I can make as many copies as I want" thing. I have to HDD and three SD cards. And again, how many of those delisted games were people flocking to?

I want to also add: You can still redownload delisted title if you've already paid for them.

Digital almost always, but not on 360 because of the terrible tiny overpriced hard drive and atrocious game prices. After steam + SSD, physical media seems slow, primitive, and irritating. I only hope consoles next gen step up and get on on the level, or I'm probably done with them.

Does it matter? Why should any part of gaming history be locked out to new buyers, ever? And there are some gems on that list, including Marble Blast Ultra, one of the top selling games in the XBLA's history.

Besides, the list only includes full XBLA games. The total list of all delisted content is much higher. It also doesn't include any of the original Xbox content which includes stuff for games like Halo 2 and Mechassault.
