Nintendo's Wii U and 3DS stores closing means game over for digital archives

Best thing we can do is support physical whenever possible. Make sure it remains a big enough slice of the pie so that it cannot be out-phased.

Carts eventually burn up. Discs eventually decay. The dedicated hardware needed to play them eventually break down.
The only true way to truly preserve games is through emulation and a lot of backups.

It WILL be phased out. You cant stop inevitability. Too many are switching due to convenience.

Jailbreak. With the way these companies act there's nothing to feel sorry about.
