Starting to think downloading games isnt worth no tax charges

You can find almost any game for $40 or less within 2-3 weeks of release if you keep your eyes open for deals. That always beats no tax.

I believe that's also due to your ISP. What is your download speed?

The fact that I don't have to get up and change discs makes digital worth it.

Don't Blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't Blink. Good Luck.

I've already saved over $70 on buying physical this gen. I'm willing to stand once in a while for potentially hundreds or thousands of dollars over the console lifespan. Plus sometimes you need a drink or the restroom anyway.

Digital doesn't have competitive pricing

Digital requires downloading, which in this gen could make people hit their ISP data rate caps FAST. This could end up costing the consumer even more money over time.

Digital is inefficient if bandwidth is low.

Digital can be deactivated with a patch or pulled from the marketplace completely.

The only advantage of digital that people seem to be able to offer is they can change games without leaving their seat.

That's all well and good, but I'm going to keep buying digital.

Then the lack of digital tax in a state should apply to actual shops.
I used my Delaware address for a while on PSN to avoid tax. I could do the same with retail games there.
