The only issue I have with that is you never know which games will be released, and it often means games being unavailable for years and years, some more than a decade, before they're released again.
In any case, if I download old games and enjoy them, and they're later on released for a system I own, I always end up buying them (in fact, I'm probably more likely to buy them if it's something I've been playing over the years and not some old game I haven't touched in ages)... which I realize isn't an argument in favor of downloading them in the first place, but at least I don't cause anyone to lose any money.

That said, I really think it's cool how several old games have been re-released on the current generation of consoles... especially when they add some extra features, most importantly coop netplay.
