I don't understand the want/need for physical media.
To play old games off disc, presumably after they would be "unavailable" digitally, would be harder then just cracking the game on an emulator at that same time.
Not to mention the game probably wont install at that point because what ever version of the xbox dashboard you have wont match so you would need to "update" the game either way.
Used game sales are just :shrug: for me. Never participated in that, even in the 90's.
I was following you there right up until you said “even in the 90’s.”
Funcoland or GTFO!!! I miss that place and their game price newspapers.
