If movies went streaming only, you still have a way to keep it forever and play without restriction.
If music went streaming only, you still have a way to keep it forever and play without restriction.
If games went digital only, you do not have that option but for systems that are cracked.

Here's where you lose me.

You say streaming-only movies can be 'owned' by stealing them. But streaming-only games can't be owned unless you crack the system... for a technically savvy person like yourself, those are pretty close to equivalent in difficulty, and identical in morality. Why are you treating them differently?

(If you argue that 'cracking' is hard for some people, you've lost credibility with me, because stealing is hard, too.)
