    An interesting discussion is taking place on Windows Central's Xbox forums revolving around a single question — Do you prefer digital or physical Xbox One games?
    The question is an interesting one, specifically, because Microsoft attempted to shift users over to digital with the original Xbox One's launch, by making the console always-online, while adding limitations on how often you could trade used game discs. The trade-off would've been digital library sharing for up to ten friends and family members, and an assault on the used games market, which game developers and publishers feel is eating into their profit margins. The backlash against the limitations led to Microsoft scrapping the system entirely.
    Digital continues its rise regardless, however, with physical retailers like GameStop and GAME in the UK struggling for survival. Yet, for all the convenience of digital licenses, there's still something enchanting about collecting physical game discs, in a similar way that has seen vinyl records return to popularity.
