Maybe I got this wrong somewhere down the line, but isn't it still true with physical media that if the publisher/developer stops selling or pulling a game from distribution that, according to the EOL that everyone agrees to when buying software, that you aren't allowed to use it?

I've never seen or agreed to an End of Life on a physical release from a game console, or a computer game. Ever. So no. And even if that WAS true, they cannot enforce it without coming to my house.

oops, I meant EULA :D

Also, there are a lot of things that are illegal that can't be enforced if everyone does it. For example, pirating music.
