It’s over for physical media, you know this right? PC hasn’t been physical since forever, digital sales have far outpaced disc sales, digital is far cheaper for publishers, most disc games are unplayable without the load of patches that come out over time. Every pirated games are also just digital. It’s over you disc fags

>>651325773>It’s over for physical media, you know this right?Do you think "cloud" actually means "cloud like a rain cloud"? As in that data just hovers in some ether to be pulled out of a vacuum at will? It's on some RAID array in [name a 15 minute city] you fucking clown.

>4kNot interested. Pedophile console.
>>651329217>Hard Drive breaks unless you back it up on 200 different devices>Money stolen
>>651329841>buy a 2nd hdd>first hdd breaks after 20 yearswow, Glad I still have literally fucking everything on the backup. And now 20 years in the future a replacement 240tb hdd is $30, I can take everything ever made from my 12tb drive and add it to that giant one.
>>651325773Weird. Xbox has always pushed backpat the most over their competitors. They seem to care about preservation the most
