Which do you prefer? Digital or physical

All my games have been digital because we game share and I got a bunch of free Xbox money.

If MS and Sony really wanted all digital they could make them 49.99 digital and physical 59.99 bam all digital. Why dont they do this they make more with no shipping , packaging and sharing with retailers. So stop the BS that gamestop are the only money grubbers ALL businesses are that way


MS/Sony won't make digital cheaper because it would majorly piss off retailers. Full on digital would be the death knell of Gamestop and others stores like them yet at present they are an essential part of game distribution so they have to be kept on side. The first console maker to discount digital would have a backlash from these retailers.

steam did things the best because Valve leveraged the power of releasing the hottest PC game (Half Life 2) and making it exclusive to their platform. Maybe if MS/Sony released their exclusives, and they were really good games, at a cut price (ie $60 less Gamestop's normal cut) exclusively digital then they could start the transition. However, given that many big publishers have separate deals with retailers (exclusive DLC, toys, apparel, etc) this might not completely turn the tide.

It's according to the game. A sports game or COD physical, Halo or another game that I plan on playing for a long time and not getting rid of digital.

Physical, but I will buy digital if it's the only way to get it or if it's really cheap (ie Steam sales).

Too many games, not enough free time.

Prefer physical but if there's a good sale on digital then I'll go with that and I have no objections to buying a digital only release


This by far is the best answer in my opinion.

Physical by far.

Digital. Who wants to go to Gamestop? That place stinks although maybe not as stenchy as the Apple store


You mean literally?
