All the physical copy does is save a few hours of downloading.

For me, the digital copy is always downloaded faster compared to going to the nearest store and buying it there, not to mention I can start the download and install remotely from work and have it ready by the time I come home :)

Most Indie games are complete trash too and the best AAA titles are far better than the best Indie games. I'd say that the average quality of Indie games is far lower as well...

I encourage you to compare Diablo 3 (very clearly an AAA title) to any of the other recent ARPGs (most notably Path of Exile).

AAA titles usually have good sales due to hype, but that doesn't equal to game quality in my book.

Comment Re:How much do missles cost anyway? (Score 5, Insightful) 861

Actually you should look at the value of the target to be hit by the missile, not at the value of the missile to be intercepted. You can destroy infrastracture and equipment worth of millions of dollars with a single missile, not to mention that most of the stuff that is destroyed can't be replaced instantly. The $100,000 cost of the interceptor is small compared to that.

Around here, there is a notable difference in quality of the road surface between the lanes, because there are plenty of heavy load trucks. I actually do drive in the passing lane on an empty highway just to save on shocks maintenance costs.
