Gaming's Biggest Problem: Being Overburdened With Memorabila

Hardcore Gamer: My love of gaming and collecting has turned my room into that of a disaster area. Strewn across the floor all over are cases, discs, systems, the errant set of batteries, and gutted Wii remotes that I do not use. On the side of my room where I have a dresser, there are stacks of gaming magazines that I read four or five years ago. In the room adjacent to mine you can find a large duffel bag containing the original Game Boy, a Game Gear and all the subsequent handhelds I don’t use at the moment. It all takes up space, which I haven’t enough of. Why? I just can’t bring myself to get rid of any of it! (Culture)

you won't be able to keep them all in one HDD.

I will delete old games and re-download for another play through(if that happens) in the future. It's not like I loose my games once you delete it.

-I do not play 5 games at a time.(With my life about 2 games at once)

-I have a 17TB Media NAS with a HTPC attached to my HDTV so I doubt I will keep movies on the XboxOne. Maybe some music.

-SKYdrive can play media from what I've heard.

-I heard there will be External HDD capabilities.

-Cloud storage could be a possibility in futre, now we are talking worst case scenario for me.

You gamers out there using one box for your gaming and media consumption could run in to issues. Space is no issue.

Let's say you download 20 games, but you can only keep 5-10 at any given time per 500GB HDD. You need to download the game and install it into your HDD so you are looking at more than 50GB for those that require mandatory install. Yes, you can go delete it whenever you want, but what if the day comes when Sony decides to shut the server down. Yes, you can try to upgrade the HDD, but how many TB do you really need? What if your HDD breaks down on you? There's a good chance you won't recover all the games you have bought, especially the ones you like.

Trade ins for me snagged me a Dualshock 4 since they were mostly games I won't play again.

That is why I shifted into selling all my games when I have a chance and if I wanted a collection Ill be playing on my PC.
No more physical clutter.

At one time it was cool collecting, but I found that alot of the games I finished I never went back and played them, because more games would always come out.

Memorabila?

Anyway, I hardly call it being "overburdened." I quite like having my discs(or did; long story). I don't complain about being "overburdened" with all the books I own. Why would game cases be more of a problem?
