DVD vs CD

At least not in my experience.
With respect to reading scratched CDs, my DVD player does a better job than my CD-RW....but those are CDs.

If this was a serious post...
DVD drives on computers are for wussies. I actually have one; but I don't use it. It's evil... at least until I bother to start using it.
Only lazy people who cna't manage installing 6 CDs are so desperate for DVD to actually be normal. Or, nature lovers who love animals more than people as well..
These are usually the same people who are anti game manuals, and deseve to be ignored.

Deadly seriously. I'm with Darque. I have a DVD drive... and, enver bother to use it. If given a chocie between DVD and CD, CD anytime. That said, I'm sure I'll be brainwashed eventually into using the DVD drive.

What possible advantage could CDs have over DVDs when it comes to installing games?
I love my DVD burner... I remember having to backup all my old stuff on tons of CDs... Now it's just a couple of DVDs. :D

My computer sucks, yet I've had a DVD-ROM (Pioneer 500M) for some... five years now? I bought a DVD-RW (Plextor PX-712A) two years ago. I burn approximately 1 DVD worth of backup every month or so, and I can't remember the last time I actually bought a CD-R. CDs are dead.

No wonder Wallmart delivers on CD then...
Anyways; It is hard gaming with a CD-drive here in Europe and I don't mind AT ALL. The more data on the disk at once without swapping the better. DAMN Kotor2 and DS2 with their silly 4CD's!

I hope they compromise and make a mix of both though. It'd be interesting to see recent marketing data to see what % of purchases are DVD when consumers have a choice, adjusting for availability etc.
