@djjoejoe: This. I was so annoyed when they reversed their policies because of no longer being able to install discs. I could have had my library be entirely digital while still shopping for the best price. Eliminating retail competition on the digital versions of games was actually a huge negative for the consumer.
Couldn't agree more.
I wish they would just go back on their word again and ship discs with codes. Allow the codes to reusable if the disc is inserted once so that people can't create crazy game sharing sites. I think people would react well to it if they do a good job explaining it.
