"Fixed an issue where a user’s sequential wins were interrupted due to communication errors during online play"

Thank you!!! This annoyed me to death. The highest win streak I have is 3 because of these communication errors

Way to complete miss the point. There are plenty of reasons (which I Gave and you echoed) to stay physical. Collecting, reselling, etc. are all great reasons to stay physical.

The point I was referring to had to deal with him complaining that digital was tied to a "piece of plastic." Physical is also tied to a piece of plastic, just disc shaped. People say "if my console is stolen then I'll lose all my games." Which is exactly what would happen if your games were also stolen/lost. To your other point: discs are way easier to be scratched or damaged than a console for most consumers. If they are, there is ZERO chance Nintendo will replace them. If a console is damaged, there is a a semi-decent chance you could recover any digital games you downloaded.

Would it be nice if downloads were tied to an account as opposed to a console? Yes. But honestly, some arguments for physical over digital are just silly. Others are not.

This argument is quite dumb. You are in fact still tying your ownership of the game to a piece of plastic... just a disc shaped piece of plastic. One that is actually a lot easier to get damaged or lost than an actual console. And once a disc is lost or damaged, how could you possibly retrieve it? Call Nintendo support and ask them to send you a new disc? lol

There are plenty of reasons to stick with a physical copy (being able to resell, take to a friends house, etc...), but being tied to the console is quite honestly dumb.
