Ah, yeah, we’ve been doing it forever, so it must be the best way, right?

I haven’t bought a disc in five years.

I'm with cheapLEY on this one. I think having single use storage devices is kinda wasteful and although practical for a time is still not worth it. Not to mention it is also isn't as reliable. What if you lose it? break it? Just doesn't work with your Xbox? Software on a server somewhere will always be there as long as it's supported. And it has infinite backup.

I know the counter to this is that it's in someone else's hands so if they decide to remove it they can. But technically software on media storage is still the developers property.
