I was all against digital downloads for the longest time for all the same reasons most people hate the idea but I recently just started to understand why it will become a huge asset to us all. You see, when you buy a game physical, there are two major perks, one is you can sell it again and get 15 bucks back(average), and you actually own something physical. On average, a used game buyer or new game trade in'er saves 15 dollars in one way or another. Now what if, just what if say..Nintendo started releasing all their first party games for 40 bucks even with no tax online? Yeah you lose your ability to sell it but, you are practically already selling it setting as you've saved that money already, and on top of that you KEEP the game. Your game is on a hard drive now. Not in your hands, that is true..but! At least(with Nintendo) they ate not on a companies servers where they can just take it away from you at any time. What's more is,no disk breaks or scratches! So my concluding point is, buying online might end up saving us just as much money, we get an invincible copy of the game and the companies spend less money on production which lowers delays and issues with demand. I still suggest the companies release hard copies for people who just can't download big games, or do what Sony tried to do with the vita and sell memory cards for the people who can't download, but they would cost more. Does it not sound good? I'm not implying we go pure digital, there if way to many issues with that, but there should be perks to supporting a company by digital download (aka 20 dollars off).
