Ok. I'll stick with physical when I have the option. Have fun going all digital though!


you mean to say: "have fun being overcharged!" because pretty much ALL digital except steam is blatantly taking the piss out of their customers...

i'll stick to the CHEAPER format thanks...

The "physical is cheaper" arguement doesn't apply when a game is brand new. A majority of a games sales happen in the first few weeks of launch. So price is hardly an issue. If you want to wait a year to buy a game, the. its your problem you have to pay more. And why do people keep bringing up the issue of space? Physical uses up the same amount of space. And I'm the troll? I'm merely presenting an alternate way of thinking.

No it does not. You don't install the whole 18 Gb of GTA V if you have a physical copy but if you download it, That's 18 Gb of data + the extra 8 Gb mandatory install

Yes, you do, actually. Physical discs install the whole game onto the HDD for PS4. All of them.

So, you're basically a terrible person. Good to know. Not surprising given your whole "Think like me" attitude >.>

Why wait anywhere from 10-30 hours to download a game, when I can get it at the store and be playing it within a hour? There are still real problems with digital download, and in America it is only going to get worse. As long as a game is similar price physical or digital, for many physical is still the way to go. It is one thing with Steam where most PC games are sold through there, but most games are still around 10GB or so to download (At least what I play on PC). Yeah it may take me several hours, but when I get the game for $5 while it is still $20+ on console, I'll live.

Whoops... Guess that's what I get for trying to jump in. Disregard my last post and carry on, people.

EDIT: My other post still stands though. Unless all of my systems are hacked and I'm getting free games all across the board, I'll continue to buy physical copies
