That, or at least all games remain available forever without worrying about being unable to get them again.
And anything short of a Steam-esque situation is completely unacceptable to me (and I don't particularly want the Steam model on consoles either), I don't want my games tied down to a system that could well break down or be unable to EVER get a game after a certain point short of full blown piracy just because there aren't enough copies out in the wild and I didn't get it ASAP. I've said it before, but if Microsoft and Sony do implement this kind of system I will want Nintendo to completely destroy both, they'd either need to be humbled or driven out entirely. I suspect it may be too costly to merit the effort though, not unless it's pennies to stick this kind of tech on a disc.
