Currently the media options in My Game Collection are:
Physical - returns games labelled as Physical, and Physical and Digital
Digital - returns games labelled as Digital, and Physical and Digital
Physical and Digital - returns all games

I would like two more for Physical only and Digital only, to return games that only have that type of version and not the other.

EDIT: "Distribution" drop down works on the other game pages My Games and Full Games List, in a better way allowing for physical/digital only filters, but for some reason it is different in My Game Collection?

I would like these options in the Game Collection page instead of the current ones.

Basically my reasoning for the additional filters is that I would like to show which GameGass games I have started that don't have a physical version so I can prioritise those ones to finish first, if they are digital only and leave GP I'll need to buy it to finish it.

Will be helpful for other people for others reasons too I'm sure

In "Xbox Games" and "My Games", the options are as you require.

For instance, if I look at Full Games List

I can filter Game Pass games down to:
229 all
128 both physical and digital
101 digital only
0 physical only

I see what I have done, I use My Game Collection where the filters are as I stated.

What you suggest works, however when in the Full Games list I can't see which I have started or are in My Game Collection and when in My Games I can't see which are in GamePass.

So what I would like is the same functionality that already exists in those pages applied to the My Game collection page. I have edited my original post and title, thanks for your input

You can do both of those?

In "My Games", the filter option is the same "Other filter" to filter Game Pass
In the full games list, filter by "Played status" ?

Just found that sorry, thanks again.
Still stands that it would be good/should be available in My Games Collection
