I'm planning on going full digital on the NX and I already have 56 games on Steam, so it doesn't make a difference for me =P

I wouldn't quit. My problem isnt digital as it is the way games can be played on a system. Like for example, I love the PSP Go, its a digital only system. And I love the DS which is physical only. However I'm annoyed with the Vita that has exclusive physical and exclusive digital only games x~x If I'm going to be forced to do digital I want it ONLY digital, no physical option at all. Dunno if thatll make any sense to people XD

 

Wait, really? I thought there was a rule that they have to release the game on psn too. Any games come to mind?

That will eventually stop working as all old hardware units have a end life to them.

It'll work longer than either of us will.

Plus patents expire after 20 years. There's already perfectly legal hardware clones of old 8-bit & 16-bit consoles. We should start seeing clones of N64 & PS1 hardware within the next several years. Assuming buying a working console isn't feasible for hardware that's more than 20 years old (which is unlikely seeing as you can still easily find working Sega CDs and PS1s and those date back to the mid 90s), you can probably expect third parties to offer alternatives to the real deal.

Well, there are some Vita games you have to import as physical version, because they aren't in your local PSN region.



No I made my peace with full digital in the past years and I actually prefer it to physical media. I have a big physical collection of games. But its just simpler and easier to have it all digital.
As long as you can play offline I am fine with it.

I would quit gaming as a hobby (as in playing several hours a week, buying several games a month) and just play for the odd Halo, Gears or Mass Effect title every now and then.



I'm primarily a PC gamer so no, it's OK even though I'm not a big fan. Without PC, I'd have to seriously consider the possibility though.



I would keep on buying them. In fact I would buy more of them because digital games are a cheaper option for me.

Yeah, NES cartridges and the NES system are immortal - dat nintendo seal of quality yo.

 

I said they'll last longer than we will, not eternity.



People wouldn't quit gaming but would defiantly make less purchases.
