If Steam were to shut down, we would get a chance to download all our owned games and Steam authentication would be removed in one way or another. Gabe has answered this question many times.
I still buy CDs of great albums because the format quality is way better than MP3. In fact, MP3 is the worst wide released format to exist yet. Even cassettes sounded better over the hiss. I'd go vinyl, but they arent really portable. I may classify as an audiophile though. You've seen my DVDs, yeah, I have more CDs than that.
On topic: I'm liking the WiiU less and less as this goes on. I don't think I'm going to be on board this time(although, I said the same about the Wii and cracked after a couple years).
