Worst physical game purchase ever.

The game arrived from amazon today, but I don't get my vita until next week. I figured I would read the instructions so I opened the game and...nothing.

This package has absolutely nothing but the game and case. No instruction manual, no EULA slip, no ad, nothing!

I officially regret not buying the digital version.

all vita games seem this way. the manual is instead accessible in the Live Area section of the game. Each game has a live area.

Interesting. I didn't know that.

Lumines will definitely be a digital purchase now.

Same with Uncharted: Golden Abyss, buddy. :/ Hope it isn't for all Vita games but it seems that way. Still, I like my tangible media, so I'm willing to pay a few more $ for a case.

I buy physical because i like to have a collection, not because of booklets

I buy physical because i have a phobia of what would happen if sony shut down there servers in a few years or i lost my psn info etc etc. silly i know, but i can always pop in my physical copy and not have to worry about re downloading or anything like that.

I actually kind of like having the manuals on the game card. They're super-fast to page through and I don't have to worry about losing them.

In a perfect world, they'd add a search feature but I guess these days most game manuals are short enough not to need one. Well, unless you're looking for something hidden in the 10 pages of EULA. :)

The digital versions are not worth it, because they're huge (Uncharted, for example, is almost 5 GB). Being slightly cheaper is totally offset by the cost of storage itself on the Vita

Uncharted has a filesize of 2.7 GB.

Closer to the sun and far from the moon, people screaming out they gonna see me real soon.

I like to have the physical game in my hands...I guess I'm just old school like that. Theres just something about buying a 40 dollar game and not getting anything to show for it that doesn't seem right to me. I do the same with CD's.....I'd rather pay 12 bucks for a physical CD then pay 12 bucks for a "digital download".
