Have lost over 2tbs of games. Just sucked it the **** up and started re-downloading the ones I care about. Never understood the need to collect, hell I payed a $600 debt with my ps1,ps2 and ps3 games along with the system. Nothing crazy valuable but at original cost it probably added up to over $2300 in cash spent on it. Felt bad for a minute then moved on. I had more pain over breaking the hard drive and losing the 2tb, just due to the shear time it took and data I had used to get them.

Probably laugh. That's what I tend to do when something really shitty happens that I can't do anything about. When the power supply in my PC blew up, I laughed. When I lost all my Wii save data during the system transfer process to Wii U, I laughed. It would likely be the same for this situation.

After that, I would begin compiling a list of everything that was lost and hunt replacements. Maybe not for everything. If I could just get my favorites back, I'd be set.

I sell all of my games the moment I finish them, assuming they're not digital downloads. I actually don't own a single physical game as of right now.

I've gone all digital now.

But, if I did still collect games physically and had a significantly large collection, I'd be pretty devastated. I wouldn't be able to get over it for a while. But, at the same time it'd probably persuade me to buy my favourites back and keep it smaller this time around.

@speeny: by now I’ve gone all digital as well. But if my console gets destroyed, I’d hate to think how those hard earned saves would just vanish.

@outworld222: I've backed up my saves on Google Drive. They're only a few KB so doesn't take up much space at all. :)

@speeny: seems like a good idea, but I have a 3DS and nintendo is quite old in how they save saves.

Whaw. . . get it together people

Why is everyone posting in a lustrum old thread, if you're wanting to make another thread about digital versus physical (overly done topic) just make one. Most the people in this thread are long gone.

@davillain- please can you close this ancient topic.

Don't bump threads no one has posted in for weeks, months or even years.
