What is the principle difference between a game being stored on a hard drive or a Bluray, its digital storage either way? Or is it streaming that is the issue?
I have control over the property more so than the company. The device is discontinued. I keep my stuff and I want to use it. If it's on disc. Only the patches. Which is another pointless thing you have to deal with. Since why are they not able to be backed up like save files in the first place? I have an easier time just go: poof installed, play. I don't even need to log into PSN. I have to change my HDD. And just reinstalled my 10 games, within the hour. While I had none of the internet configed.
Evenutally, patches and the PS3 will be fully hacked. I'll just ahve to backup patches and DLC files. VS that and all the games. Even the convenience of downloading and loading a game from the menu, will become an issue. Because games will get bigger and bigger. You'll just be downloading and deleting more and more often. Or having to need 5 HDD's for games. It's the same issue. But just with HDD, and not cards/discs. Streaming is even worse. Think of what EA did with origin. Their games aren't on steam. So you want to pay $10 for EA, $10 UBI? Beacause any company could pull the same stunt.
This example is worse. I pay $5 extra to have my local TV stations on my cable boxes DVR. So I can record them. That means I'm paying money to CBS. Now, CBS wants $5 for me to be able to watch the next Star Trek show on their streaming only shit. So... I have to pay two times, to watch things from one company. Not to mention, one SINGLE show. Screw off. Wait for the bluray, done with my money. In 3 days, of this post. Doctor Who is being removed from Netflix. I don't have to deal with that bullshit, with discs.
