[CVG]Modern Warfare 3 stolen, pirated - Page 15

post #141 of 155
It doesn't matter hwo much those people who think that because they are able to just rely on steam and spotify for their downloads, that everyone else should stop using physical media, it will never go away.

Photoshop for example. Imagine downloading CS5 on half bad internet?

Perfect example of a teen without common sense. (Or someone acting childish which is worse).

Tell me what game that came from without searching or reading that one bit.

Obvious, eh? Who needs labels. (And yes, they can be labelled too, just not as easily yet.)
And less secure than optical drives? At worst, it will be as secure.
You can also bet that if they became as heavily used as DVDs/CDs, they'd become a lot cheaper too, and that ~$80 for a , they'd pay quite a bit less. But 16GB or even 8GB would be enough for most companies.

I have no idea. It reminds me of the Emerald Viewer for Second Life though. Add they are still more expensive than Optical discs.
Edit: Ah, it's Sim's. (Had to get my friend to tell me).

this is actually a smart idea

Not only did I recognise the gem thing from sims, I then noticed it actually is labelled sims

BUT... this proves nothing, my butt can be labelled. Phyiscal media will always be around, because it is very cost effective, easy to use, widely accepted as all we need for now, etc etc.

Those that think we should 'move on from discs' are not thinking past their own requirements and are just being ignorant. However, I do think programs should be available on portable thumb drives too. Although I wouldn't trust myself to not loose my stupidly expensive AUTO CAD.

Basically, just offer the software on a DVD, a thumbdrive and a download. It's a win win/thread

Buy a 32 or 64GB flash drive once, when you want a new game you walk into gamestop or best buy and plug it in "Yeah ill take Modern Warfare 12 thanks" USB 3 speed onto your drive including a 'CD Key' and you go home and plug it in, use the same key the next time.

Also makes the game available for digital download later on.

I use Steam for my PC but for my music, movies and console games, I do place value in the aesthetics of my collection. Even the PC games I get retail I display. Digital is great and I'm all for it but there's nothing wrong in wanting to display your library.

I agree but future and younger generations don't. Its all heading to digital sans physical copies. It could still be quite a few years but it will happen.

Younger and casual gamers will actually prefer physical as they do not know anything about downloading and installing large files. Nothing is heading digital, if you think it is, you fell for an illusion. D.D. will never take over. In fact, D.D. is just the legal version of Piracy. And Piracy went up when games started going digital.
