Pc is the only thing where I have more digital. Mostly because it's far cheaper with the constant sales which most other platforms lack.
Also have a TB to work with instead of 32GBs.


See, for me PC, or rather Steam specifically doesn't work, because of their "You must ALWAYS be connected to the internet for this to work!" attitude, even for games that are pretty old. Blizzard is doing a lot of the same thing. I am just not always places where there is internet, so... yeah, can't do it.

IT depends on 3 things

1) Size of the game in relation to how much space I have
2) Longevity of the game and qualityvalue it offers.
3) If the physical version is far more expensive

PC you are forced Digital due to DRM and lincense for most games. When you buy a physical PC game you are actually buying a code for the digital game most of the time. So Physical games on PC are very rare. Sure there s box but you cannot simply resell it. This is not the case for all PC games but is for most.

I wouldn't say that.

Come to think of it... I don't think ANY of the PC games I have are packaging with a download code. Not a single one. :\

Physical for me because i like displaying my games on my shelf so i can look at and admire the covers etc. also the sentimental value of physical copies is alot more than digital 'xause if someone wanted to either buy a digital copy or the physical copy off you i know i would sell the digital copy instead of the Physical copy

I prefer physical copies. They don't fill up my hard drive, I can trade the game in and get some money back if I don't like it, if a publisher releases some broken port for my console I can show my appreciation by buying a used copy, and if my console dies I don't have to spend two weeks re-downloading everything.

I don't think he means it like that, it's more like, you know how you buy a computer game, and you have the code printed on the CD booklet or what have you? It's more for validation, rather than download the whole thing, kind of thing.
At least I think that is what they are saying.

For console games, I will never buy a digital copy of a game unless it is solely available through digital distribution.

For PC games I generally get them digitally unless I'm pre-ordering it at a game store or something like that.
