  1. I can see the hole this is trying to fill. If you want most flexibility and a drive buy the X.

    I prefer digital games until such time as xbox allows me to play my physical purchased games without the disk being in the system. Should be able to buy the physical game.imstall it completely and store the disk and not need it to play…

    • Hi Ryan,

      Thanks for your comment. When you buy a physical disc, the game is copied to the hard drive. The disc being required to be in the optical drive each time you want to play it is as security measure. Otherwise, you could install the same game in multiple systems.

    • Hi Jerry,

      The great thing is that you can easily add additional storage just by hooking up an external USB hard drive.

  2. I still prefer to purchase physical games most of the time.

    It is my belief that when I purchase a game digitally I am only paying a fee to rent a game for an indefinite period of time. At some point in the future if the digital store closes I will lose access to my digital games, but if I purchase a physical copy for as long as I have a working console I will be able to play them.

    Also, I like that with a physical copy I can choose to sell my copy of a game if I decide that I don’t want it anymore.

    I’m hoping that at some point in the future console stores will find a way for people to sell back a copy of a game that can then be purchased by a different account for a discounted price.

    • Hi Ian,

      I totally understand and hear where you are coming from. Going all digital is not for everyone just yet. Though, I do like that Xbox is giving us that option for those who want to and at a reduced console price.

    • Digital or disc based, when Microsoft “retires” a console, you won’t be able to play the games anyway as the system needs to be connected to the internet.

      While convenient, digital copies require downloads which are terribly slow for most users and 1TB is not enough for a decent library.

      Faster internet connections and larger hard drives will push this into the preferred category of game purchases and storage.

      • Steve your are right. Regardless of physical or digital, once the servers for the game go down that is it. While 1TB might not be enough, you can easily add more storage via USB. Regardless if you go digital or not the game is still copied to the system’s hard drive. The optical drives are too slow for the games of today.
