Just got a New 3DS XL

Apparently there's not a huge demand in small town America. My Wallyworld has 3 black and 2 red.

[QUOTE=ptdebate]<br />That's not really true. With GOG, you can download as many digital copies as you want and burn 10,000 backups if it suits you. <br /><br />I personally prefer to get many of my PC and older console games in the dark corners of the internet. The policies there are just the ...

[QUOTE=Vexer]ZetaX- Sites like Steam, Gamersgate, Green Man Gaming and GOG are not subscription or cloud-based though, so they're not going anywhere anytime soon.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />They could all go out of business.  You have no physical copy of your games.  You have one digital copy on w...
