Digital or Physical: How do you prefer your Video Games?

I prefer them fit and silky smooth.

physical is way cheaper.

look at the games on demand prices. some games that are 4 yrs old are still 40-50 bucks on demand, when you can go to a store and get the same game for 15-20

It doesn't particularly matter. Digital would be better if they would make bigger hard drives though. For smaller games it's not an issue but when you have 6-10GB games it fills up an HDD fast. Not to mention games that have growing save files ala Elder Scrolls and Fallout.

Other than that a game collection is a game collection as long as it's all accessible in future generations. As long as I can still download all the games from XBL and PSN I have now onto the future consoles I'll just be fine and dandy.

Most people think they are the odd one out but never truly are. I am that one who actually is. :D

Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.
The armory of god is guarding me but all you can see is holographic artistry.

physical

I'm afraid they would make hard drives proprietary and more expensive than necessary. they would then make them smaller and game sizes bigger.

Digital. Steam prices just can't be beat.

Digital.
While I like having a case, and a physical collection to show off, and the ability to sell old games....it's rare that those opportunities come up and/or are worth it.
I prefer having a collection that can be backed up, redownloaded and transferred easily across multiple consoles/PCs.

Digital is the way to go (STEAM). people complain about new XBOX maybe having this, i like the idea. If you get new box, you can transfer your games like XBLA games now. No biggie. Only people complaining are the ones that probably can't afford buying new. Just saying.


I only buy new, so your arrogant view point is inaccurate.

Physical, because in my area the internet isn't the greatest, and I can still play my game in 15 years on a different console if I want (I still play Ps1 games released Prior to 1998, so this is not an exaggeration)

Also the current % seems to back up what sales have been on consoles (only around 20% being digital)

physical

there have been times when Xbox Live or PSN has been down or my local service provider is down for repairs. How would I download games then?

It doesn't matter to me. I get both physical and digital games. They both have pros and cons.
