If deals were even half as good as Steam, would you go all digital on XB1/ PS4?

Not until I can put in a new HDD. I've basically gone all digital with PS3, but the game sizes are too big for the stock PS4 HDD. Saves getting up to change games, faster loading, and easier to replace a HDD(which is backed up on an external) than to replace the blu ray player if worn out.

I almost always buy physical when the game's available in that format. It tends to be cheaper, I can lend it out to friends, it takes up less hard drive space (except for this gen, which is a huge disappointment), and I don't have to worry about losing access to my game if I should lose my account for any reason.

The only times I make an exception are if a sale is simply too good to pass up (like Tales of Xillia for $10 a few weeks ago) or if the game's simply impossible to find for a reasonable price (like Suikoden 1 & 2)


I find digital cheaper personally. Even for a new game, there is no tax. PS Plus sales can be incredible as well. Not to mention game-sharing on PS3 with a friend to offset costs.

Usually when I'm shopping around for games, the digital version is $10-20 more expensive than physical at the very least -- especially if I can get a used copy that doesn't have a season pass or any digital-only content gutted out.

PS+ sales are great, yes, and they fall under the first exception. But I still hesitate to buy digital games that are available physically because I like the security of knowing that the copy is mine and can't be revoked for any reason.
