MS and Sony better have the option to go full digital next gen, I don't want anymore stupid boxes.

It's really one of the only things PC gamers can really feel superior about if you ask me, going full digital.

Resources such as oil are used to make all the plastic for the cases/discs. Distributing them digitally requires no natural resources at all (except air conditioning in data centers)

Sorry Earth, I prefer case copies.

The games are still manufactured and sold. The recycling part won't count, but production will.

Consolites don't mate either, plus girls are gross to young boys so they wouldn't want to anyway.

Who actually throws away games or systems? "Man I'm sick of this game, gonna go buy a new release" *throws old game in trash* I'm pretty sure everybody either keeps them or trades/sells them.

What do you think will eventually happen to them? At some point, they would be disposed of.

What about the future master race though? We can't let the plebs pollute the world for the unborn elites.

Digital distribution is the future for all platforms. Consoles will have only destroyed the environment for a few years longer. But whatever, we're just postponing the inevitable. Let's leave this place and claim what we can in the rest of the galaxy.. But let's avoiding mass enslavement and genocide if we find that others are using it, too. ;) Lol, Earthlings.

Relative to consoles, the digital market is much larger on PC.

You can reuse parts from PCs, many times

I'd imagine quite a lot with all the herms on this forum trying to justify their cheap $600 custom build gaming PCs against consoles. Those cheap ass parts would last a year before being trashed

#41 Posted by BPoole96 (22813 posts) -

Does nobody understand that this isn't all about recycling, and the inital resources used to create physical copies is just was detrimental to the environment as not recycling them?

While we're add let's stop manufacturing microchips since plasitc is so detrimental to the environment.
