Yeah, some of the options were a little confusing for me - just tried to answer with the choice that best described my habits.

 

E.g., I almost always play on real hardware via LTO flash.  I use physical carts when I can't dump the rom off of a homebrew cart.  So I chose "cartridge and LTO Flash" as my answer, even though only the first option mentioned playing on the real, physical console.

 

I picked "Digital ROM & Physical" as my preference for releases - I'm assuming that "Physical" in that choice means "Full boxed release".

 

But I'm hoping my answers give Rev the data he wants...  :)

As of now, almost 10% own 5+ LTO Flash units.

 

Hopefully at least some of those are distributors, not those if us with mental illness 🙄🤣

I would like to own a 2nd one as a backup because I do use my often and add content to it often.

I want to purchase a second LTO flash because the one I have was loaded with the roms by someone else.

I would like a second one so I dont mess up my original as I attempt to download roms by myself.

I do use my loaded LTO on original hardware as well as all my cartridges on my Intellivision 2.

I like physical boxed products as the visual presentation in my game room is still important to me after 40 years of video gaming.

I play and collect,probably both equally in my estimation.

I'd like to buy another LTO because Rev loaded mine for me which I thought was nice gesture until I realized the only thing he loaded on there were "tasteful" nudes of himself. 😐

Loading the roms is easy once you do a few times. Keep at it.

I submitted my $. 02.

 

@Rev, thank you for continuing to support the classic Inty community!

 

I have 2 LTO units because it is a physical thing and if it fails for any reason I wanted to have a backup ready. I do the same thing across my retro platforms when possi me, we can't count on supplies being around "forever". 

 

Now the complexity of that hits me with the DRM from Elektronite games. The DRUID means that a game paid-for on my one LTO Flash won't work on another one. So in the rare event, years from now, that one unit fails and Elektronite is no more, I will be out of luck. Realistically I am willing to take that long-term risk because the purchase cost over time is something that I can afford. 

 

I here to play the games and want that to be personally convenient, the rest doesn't matter tome as much.

I am exclusively digital these days.

I do have a CC3 and 2 LTO's

I play some console.  But I really like the Ultimate Flashback.

 

I also checked both $5 and $10 for roms, because it depends on the game/how much I want it.

 

I have paid more in the past, but those were more of a donation/thank you purchase.

 

Just my 2 cents...  I think all physical releases should have a $5 or free digital included.  The roms could be signed with the cart number if you are worried about sharing.

 

I am past collecting CIB's and really just playing games these days.  So I have been on a winning streak with Rev and David releasing a bunch of roms recently.

So he been stuffing Crunch chocolate wafer bar the LTO cartridge with a image of himself?(Sorry I had to visualize what tasteful nude would look like and is it edible.)

Same! 👍 I always play on real hardware, via LTO Flash. I prefer playing with the ROM rather than cartridge, so I can keep it pristine. I'll only use the actual cart if I can't dump it via Atarimax.

I should included that in the poll.  How many people dump carts.
