You encourage them to charge 50 dollars for Mortal Kombat.

If it's digital it should be CHEAPER due to no packaging or manual.

Or disc..?

I get what you mean. But there are actually some games on GoD that are cheaper than in stores.

Digital CAN'T be cheaper than retail because then MS would be undercutting all retail stores, and would alienate EVERY retail store to not sell or offer ANY MS product until we are truly a completely digital world, so many years yet.

Shouldn't you be developing a triple A game or something, TC?

In a completely digital world, no one would buy a digital game because they would have no money to buy it. The only people who are given money for making the game are the software developers and ceo/executives of the company. There's no retail employees, no shipping employees, no factories, no technical writers, no 2nd hand market, automated tech support, etc. So until we change how money is distributed in our society, a digital world cannot work.

I haven't bought a physical game on My X360 since 2009, all digital since. My Vita has never seen a cartridge...

I only buy digital if there is no other choice like XBLA or some PSN games.
I prefer cards for Vita and discs for 360 as I can get most of my money back when I'm done with the game via ebay.
I buy one or two full priced games a year and the rest come from ebay selling and buying.
Sniper app on my phone gets me loads of titles dirt cheap so one full priced game becomes 5 or 6 games before the last one is too low a value to get something I want.

I have nothing against digital though, I just don't buy DLC.

How does it feel to not really own any of your games?

In your world, the only industry is the video game industry. Thankfully, in the real world, there are many other jobs with which to make money.

Why do you think other people will have the same emotional reaction as you do to that fact? I don't mind the fact that I don't "own" the digital games I have a license to; I'm sure other people feel the same way.
