I think we should use the word "have" instead of "own", because I don't think we really own the games we download, we just temporarily have them.

Technically you're leasing the product license (even retail copies), so you never actually own anything.

We have em until the day sony bankrupts.
It's funny how we give thanks for all that we have on Thanksgiving Day and then the next day go out and act like a bunch of materialistic idiots.

this is semi-correct. you OWN the actual "disk" (so cd/bd/dvd etc), but you do NOT OWN the content on the disk.

I would say you own real copies since there is no reasonable way to go and retrieve them

online games you are just denied access to the game through the license.

You think you can pay $60 and actually own the intellectual property on the disc? The only thing you own is access to run the game. That's it.
