Since I've never had a digital game I've purchased "expire" I'm going with fiction. Been buying digital for years and I still own all my digital games

You didn't buy anything from OG Xbox Live or Playstation Mobile, then. Also, all of the PS+ and GWG titles have expiration dates.

These topics always turn into the same old tired debate. All I can say is I still have every title I have ever received digitally, everything still works, nothing has expired. You're free to believe how you think the system works, I'm merely stating from my own experience how it has worked for me

Digital can be taken away from you through no fault of your own, therefore you don't own it.

If your disc is stolen, that's your fault.

How exactly can they be taken away? I own quite a few digital games and never had problem

I bet you can't sell your digital game. Thus you don't really own it.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just like, uh, your opinion, man- The Dude

Neither.

"Don't own digital games" is merely an instruction, not a truth or lie.
