I "limit" myself to Netflix, FUNimation, Crunchyroll, and Amazon Prime, but will add Disney+ soon.
Also, you can't count on certain streaming services always having permanent access to certain series. I remember quite a few years ago Doctor Who was being taken off Netflix and fans are freaking out.
Having digital copies of movies and games is so much easier.
I would say it's easier, but not "so much easier" as to warrant getting rid of the used games market.
Selecting a digital game from XMB, 5 seconds.
Selecting a game from my shelf right next to my PS4, inserting the disc and pressing start, 20 seconds.
Yeah, fuck used games those 15 seconds add up man.
My dad loves this movie called The Illusionist. It's not the animated one but a live action movie starring Edward Norton.
It's nowhere on any streaming or digital platforms. Even the DVD is hard to find albeit it exists.
Wonder why that movie is almost nowhere to be found btw?
"You never actually "owned" the movies you purchased physically but rather you just purchased a licence to access that media" /pedantry
Huh, that's weird. That shit used to drive me nuts, I remember wanting to watch the Mission Impossible movies and Netflix only had like 1, 3, and 5. Sorry consoomers, we can't do anything about the licence deals. Well I can, I can buy the M:I combo DVD pack.
I don't see how. Oh shit, you have to get up and grab the movie.
DVD was perfect, movie directors thought it was lacking something, I'm going to give Blue Ray and 4K credit but to think DVD is mediocre is wrong.
That's because no movie these days is worthy of a re-watch. It's all remakes and political shit,. no one is willing to take a risk on, god forbid, something original
DVDs are not very good because they don't show movies in the original quality. We can finally watch them in HD on Blu-Ray.DVD was perfect, movie directors thought it was lacking something, I'm going to give Blue Ray and 4K credit but to think DVD is mediocre is wrong.

Sometimes, it's like who really gives a shit.
I bought a Tom Hanks 3 pack a few days ago on amazon, it has The Money Pit, the Burbs, and Dragnet. It was 4.99. DVD quality for these movies is perfectly acceptable to me, particularly in the setup in which I'm watching them.
I enjoyed watching the Money Pit after buying a house and having a run of doors falling off hinges. Good unpretentious fun.
Pure female logic right there.I got a laugh out of the bit about Shelley Long waking up in bed with her ex and believing that she slept with him, then sticking to lying to her husband about not having done it, and then getting and staying mad at her husband after he gets her to admit it, to the point where they are ending the relationship over it.
Then Tom Hanks at the end is like, you know, I don't mind that you fucked that guy, and she's like, aww, really?! I really needed to hear you say that to forgive you (for...?) Then she reveals that she didn't actually sleep with him, and all is well lol.
When streaming services don't offer the media, people revert back to piracy not physical media. Piracy keeps every single media how old whatever it was on the net forever.
Not always. I started feeling shitty about pirating media, and I don't anymore, I try to purchase everything I feel like I need in my collection. It amazes me how people are able to rationalize outright theft. There's really no argument as far as I know aside from "I want it and don't want to pay, and I likely won't get caught for this, so why the fuck not"
(and you had better hope that the physical is on Amazon for purchase through some seller, unless you want to start looking through racks at scary DVD stores and flea markets....)
What the hell kind of flea markets are you going to.
