I concur 100% and remember a DVD install is much faster than well....any download. Even if you have 100Mbps down, you have to install it after you d/l it. That said, the upside to DD is that if you happen to lose your disc(s) (which I've yet to do) you can always retrieve your game online. Still, I prefer to have something. I am disappointed though that even with retail DVD's there is either no book or something very little. It's not like I need it but it's just the idea of having reference materials with something you bought....it's just nice to have. Even when they put that online, even that material now is sparse!
