I have a cap, a slow connection and like having my games in the cabinet. Maybe in quite a few years from now they may go totally downloadable, but not for now.

Downloaded InFamous on the welcome back package, it took a couple of hours. No way do I want to do that every time I get a game...

Major game release date *Net crashes*

That would get old the first time it happened, and I know my luck!
