As a matter of interest, why do people buy physical game disks, what's the advantage?

Yeah and I suppose if a solar flare or EMP pulse wiped out Slith's game database we'd still have the disk to fall back on because disks are forever..:)

I've got several Close Combat disks which strongly agree with this.
