BOTH. We should have a choice. Pay $60 for a retail disc copy, or $40-$50 for a downloaded version.

Screw that. That would be a stepping stone to download only and we already have enough XBLA games that are download only. I should be able to buy Mega Man 9 and 10 and put them on a shelf next to my other Mega Man collection. I hate digital distribution.

The next Xbox should be disc/retail focused.

I agree. Disks get scratched up easy, but downloads take up a lot of space. I would like the option of both Razz

with internet speeds getting cheaper, and more areas receiving the backbone for faster connections, digital distribution will become a prominent area in the future, and i'm sure Sony/Microsoft are well aware of the possibilities
in the next 5-10 years, I can see 100mb connections becoming widespread throughout the country, we're already trialing them in the UK, what i've read though, the US don't have the best internet speeds though despite having 200+ million users
I agree with an option, though ultimately it will likely end up one or the other I reckon

So true. Anyhow some people who live out on farms and ranches, not in a town, can only get speeds just a bit higher then dial up. And they have download limits for the day like 200mb, or else they get punished with even slower internet. I myself live in a small town, and we can only get 5mbs, and it sucks for downloading, WAY slow, and half the time ping is to high to do anything.

If Microsoft wanted to do something like that, it must be optional, at least until the internet tech. grows more. For instance, the PSP Go, would not work in the middle of no-where if you had download limits like on huges net or wild blue, you cannot even play XBL on huges net from what they told me. Sad

Yea i agree with you guys. Disk is way better because you get a tangible item,its better to have something to hold.also in the future they can erase the games you downloaded and bc wont work well as new consoles are made.

I think there should be the option for both, but still with discs as the main focus. My internet is great for gaming, but the capped my download speed. 1 GB demos take up to 4 hours to download sometimes! So disc's should still be the main focus.

The US is a really big country, and there are a lot of rural areas that don't get the best ISP's around. It'd be completely unfair to them.

Yeah, isn't England smaller than California? I mean it's not hard to build high-speed data networks when your country is tiny. That's why in the US we have interstates instead of high-speed railways and why it will take a long time to lay fiber optic lines to everyone who wants one. Not only the US big, but our population is spread out so distances are great. Canada is big, but 95% of the population live within 100 miles of the US boarder and while they have 30 million people we have 300 million. Infrastructure in the US is extremely complex and expensive.

Australia is getting nationwide fibre-optic cable broadband within 10 years and this will increase speeds up to 100mbps!!! Thats insane.
And the fibre optic cable will cover 93% of the population.
So we finally have something over America and the rest of the world. Go Aussies!!!

Texas is roughly 50 times bigger than Ireland. Just thought I'd throw that in there.

Most Canadians are in the provinces,while not many live in the Territory's(up north).Even then all of the provinces are still full of forest.

England may be tiny compared to countries like the US and Russia but it is extremely densely populated, so it takes a lot of time and money to get high speed internet to all the people in the country because its so difficult to built with out causing huge traffic problems and digging up all the old stuff. People seem to forget that England and the Uk for that matter are ancient and especially in places like London and Manchester it is very hard to build things.
