I suppose though, not all of us have access to decent newsgroups and decent ISPs that try to tell us that 60 gigs a month (like those lying bastards at Bell Canada) is adequate for internet service in 2011.
I am with Teksavvy though, and downloading actual dvds is no real problem. Although, it's been a few years since I had enough reason to want anything in dvd format any more. Well on disc more correctly. It's easier to just store the data as emulated discs on cheap multi TB drives.
But as for the comment about file quality, I have never had issues with 'file quality' if I wanted that quality.
Not overly taken with blueray downloads though. But that's time factor not file size issues. Just not enough things out there I want in better than dvd quality. I routinely rip out the extras and extraneous extra clutter off of dvd downloads, but that's mainly because 4.7 discs are cheaper than dual layer discs. Although with the rise of blueray, it has become moot. Nothing much is released in non blueray these days. Glad I was able to get my stash when dvd was still the rule. Everyone seems to only upload blueray these days.
Digital distribution though IS the norm, might as well get used to it. Just bought the expansion to BBC Battle Academy Market Garden (PC game from Slitherine) last night via digital download. Why pay 25 bucks for a jacket and a case when I can get just the file for 15 bucks and put it on a disc is I desperately need to myself.
l33tmeatwad the only one losing this argument is you Just ask my friend that has a blueray burner and seems quite happy to download blueray anime.
Although I do concur about the bandwidth. With government butt screwing Joe internet user, and the corporations telling us limited bandwidth is actually ok, there's a lot of very legit business that is fighting an uphill battle. Netflix, and the movie makers and anyone with anything worth watching, that stuff is all legit marketplace services that require proper bandwidth.
Time the asses realized that it is not just pirates in need of good high performance internet services.

Digital format, comes with all the extras, easier to get, easier to store, easier to not complain about "OMG, I HAVE SO MANY DVDS I NEED TO GET RID OF!" (easier to rip? )
I've seen dvd players and blu rays with USB inputs on them, maybe we should make use of them!

Sukunai wrote:I'm just not going to steal a file if it is available legit for a lousy buck...My main beef is convenience. It is NOT convenient to go all the way to Blockbuster and find they have nothing interesting at the moment. Not all of us want the current top 10 selection. What would amuse me, is browsing a massive catalogue of films. It would be like a kid in a candy shop.
