This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

Those of you who have massive disc-based collections are fools.

Now, wait a goddamn minute...are you saying that if we treat our possessions poorly, they will cease to function?

Preposterous. SCAMMERS.

PS1 games I've owned for more than a decade play just fine.

At least they seize to function to due to end user error or natural degradation. They don't seize to function because it's no longer profitable to maintain functionality.


Cease to function.

"Seize" means to grab something suddenly and forcibly. "Cease" means to stop doing something.


My bad.

Was that all? Nothing relevant or worthwhile to contribute?

Oh, sorry, of course not.

I forgot who I was talking to.


I think what he contributed was very worthwhile to you personally, if not to the conversation.


Exactly. Your point is automatically invalid when you don't know the difference between two basic English words such as "seize" and "cease"

Lol, I love people. A stupid topic and some people putting their two cents in off reading just the TT and OP thus missing maybe one point of the article and suddenly it's "epic trolling." lol My post was a little uninformed too, am I somehow incapable of walking now that I was trolled so hard or something? Or am I laughing it off and wondering if I have any games with disc rot?

*shakes head* I just think it's funny how people exaggerate things here. "Oh snap! D'you see that topic where TC said one thing but it was really another thing?! OH MAN da ER was stank with hurtin buttz that night!"

What a hobby... whatever gets you off i guess lol.

Was browsing NeoGAF and came across a thread mentioning this-

http://www.rfgeneration.com/news/Disc-Rot/An-important-note-to-Video-Game-Sellers-and-Buyers-1337.php


Just as a heads-up, the top layer of every disc is the part with the data. If anything is done to that layer, including small nicks, bubbles, etc., then the disc is rendered useless.

Cartridges eventually suffer from bit rot, but you can replace the components in a cartridge.


My discs don't get scratched and all of my cartridge games dating back to the NES still work...it's how you take care of your stuff, not the stuff itself.

Disc rot is all about "the stuff itself" and has little to do with how you take care of it.

uhh no, what he is saying is no matter how well you take care of your discs they aren't designed to last forever.


No, really?

At least they seize to function to due to end user error or natural degradation. They don't seize to function because it's no longer profitable to maintain functionality.

So yeah, I think I'm still sticking with physical media a while longer. That said, I really want DVDs and optical media to die out soon in favour of solid state disk/read-only flash memory formats.


Cease.
