At present, it's "True", for me... but only because I have very few "Retail games" that I care about (those ~are~ purchased only in disc form), and have been using Bing Rewards to buy all of the XBLA titles, Add-ons, and DLC that I want... so it's all free.

Though, the next game that comes out in disc form, that I want, will bring us back to "False"... I like having the physical disc, just in case the servers go down, or in case I'm wanting to play 100% offline (which you can't do with some DD games).

Hell no. You always want physical media you can reinvest. Only a fool permanently throws away their money on a digital license that you don't own.
The Wing Commander series is my favorite of all time...

I own quite a few physical games for the 360 but as GoD has evolved and the prices have gone down I've gotten quite a few. It's cool to have a physical copy of something, but I generally am only going to play through most games once so if its really cheap on GoD it's fine with me... plus I really like being able to flip between different games via the 360 instead of switching discs in and out. I wish they'd just let you load discs and play from the HD for physical copies of games.

I agree with you here... especially the part about how it'd be nice to just load up the disc image to your hard drive, and play from that. When I had heard the news (forever ago) about us being able to "copy our discs to the HDD", I was beyond excited about it... and then I saw that all it did was "cut down loading times on some discs, but still required the disc to play the game", and was less than enthusiastic about it. I don't even use the feature now, since it's a pointless space eater.

Hell no. I like actually owning my games.
