This goes for both Xbox fans and Sony fans.
What if you are still in the minority?
What if, the MASS consumer still outnumber us and buy digital 2-1 when it's available because they love convenience, are lazy, and have money(especially early adopters)?
Do you have any solid market research data that points one way or another?
What if the mass consumer will still make digital the default medium, because they simply won't care about second hand value, but now we have no value in digital games?
What if you got angry about an issue, focused on a dying medium, feel like you won something, while completely taking away your attention from the fact you are going along with rights, and no second hand value, for your digital media? They will still make these available on consoles.
What if you spent hundreds or thousands on new digital purchases which get locked down, can't be traded, shared and never carry over(Xbox Live Arcade)?
What if laptops, tablets, cell phones, and many other video game playing devices don't even have an optical drive and developers make more and more digital games? Have you been paying attention?
What if we just now gave manufacturers and publishers a reason to hide behind this backlash, and still move forward with a 1 time purchase model with ZERO second hand value for digital games? "We gave you what you wanted!"
What if your game makers don't put their games on discs anymore by the end of this generation? What is the solution? Don't buy any more video games? That's going to be our only option?
What if in 10 years the only games you can buy are digital? Can you share them? Can you trade them? Can you rent them? Where is the guarantee? Same fate as Xbox Live Arcade titles?
You won the battle and lost the war? You won the present and lost the future? Are you just going to lean back, sip on drink, and call it a finished job?
What did you REALLY win? And what did you REALLY lose? Which questions didn't get asked? Which questions never really got answered? Which questions should you be asking? Are you satisfied just fighting for the present, or do you care about the future of video games as well?
