Digital vs. Physical? Which are you going with and why did you make that choice?

80/80

I've been debating back and forth over which I would end up doing, and I have arrived at my choice, both. I will be going digital for any day one purchase and any Plus discounts (Like Driveclub) I'll even be getting a SSD to make my games load faster. (with plans to upgrade once 1TB drives are under $200, a 250GB should last until then. After that it will make a nice upgrade for my PS3) Since all games install, there really isn't a reason to not upgrade so long as the PS4 is SATA III.

For physical, I'll be getting any LE release I want (like the Wizard Edition of Ni No Kuni) or niche releases that may be limited print runs, this way I scratch my collector itch. I'll also double dip once my favorite games hit $20, just so I know I will be able to play them once the network is gone.

This way, I get the best of both worlds and have no worries about the future.

Physical. Sell, trade, buy used, and with you even if servers get shut down.

A mix really,I will buy the games I must have on launch on disc but because of psplus and the discounts if I see something I wanted but have yet to buy on there for cheap I will pick it up

Won't go all digital because I don't want to have to upgrade the hdd in the first year but it will be a mix because of the discounts for me

Physical, I just personally hate digital media, in all forms.

Difference between "a" and "an": "a" comes before consonant sounds, "an" before vowel sounds.

Not really your buying the license, developers an publishers own the game.

I'll likely have a mix. Which means I'll probably end up getting a disk whenever possible.
