So recently, Ubisoft has taken away a game on Steam and you can't play it anymore even if you bought it. I thought Valve assured us that we would be able to play games even if it delisted, but apparently this not going to be the case. Microsoft has DRM issues and Nintendo is the only one from the Big 3 still "actually" pushing physicals. However I doubt even Nintendo would continue for too long, and the industry is clearly going in the direction of digital. My motto is that there is a pros and cons for everything. I think modern gaming has a lot of pros, but at the same time there are a lot of cons. I think we can all agree with this, it just depends on whether you as an individual have more cons or pros in the current state. I hate to say this, but I think most are on the pro side, majority of gamers are casual and majority wouldn't even care if the future is digital.
Actually Ubisoft posted an update saying you can still play the games even after being delisted.
But yea, DRM is still very shitty though.
It's still horseshit we have to look to find this information. A physical game is out of print no problem I still can find it used. Hell I been looking at Ridge Racer 7 on Ebay for PS3 new for $20.
