Modern Gaming: Ditching Collections & Going Digital

It's great being exclusively digital, but it’s clear that there are still some serious issues with ditching discs on console. Pre-loading, play-as-you-download, and a Watch Dogs disaster. (PC, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox One)

Yeah... Nope.

Digital is a nice supplement. It'll be a long time- never- before it's my main.

No, thanks. I want to own my games. Yeah, I know, license, not ownership, blah blah blah. It doesn't wash, and never will.

I like the idea of digital and this generation of consoles I am trying to go all digital. So far I have succeeded in my goal. About two years ago, I built my first gaming PC. The first two or three games I bought were on disc. When I installed them and started playing, I realized I didn't need the disc in my PC. I thought that was great.
I then started to take advantage of digital distribution on my PS3. I had two PS3s, which meant that I can buy one digital game and basically get two copies of it to put on both systems. So if Someone came over and wanted to play a game, they could play in my living room instead of my bedroom. We could also play mp games together on separate TVs. This is something that I find valuable as most mp games today are not including couch co-op. The PS4 has continued this feature, although they dropped the ability to add a game or app from five systems to two. Xbox One has now included a similar feature which as not available on the 360.
