Physical copy or digital? Which do you prefer?

If you had to choose, would you rather own a physical copy of the game, or have it on your PS3 hard drive. True, that not every PS3 game is available digitally in the store. But still, does it matter to you if you own the game digitally or not?

Some people don't like to take up space (especially if they have a small apartment and/or storage areas or something. I will say that I would rather own a copy physically. I really don't worry about scratches because I am anal about taking care of my discs. Plus, I like the cool box art. lol

Physical. You don't really own a digital copy, you're just paying to use it.

I prefer physical, but if it's only available digitally I don't let that stop me from enjoying it, most of my ps3 games are psn games

I remember reading an article in GameInformer, I believe, that in the future, it might be only digital. That seems to be the way of the future and I must say that kind of scares me.

Physical for me, not really a hard choice I have to say.

I didn't think it would be. I was just curious to see if a lot of people are getting into the "digital age" and have basically a Steam thing going on their PS3. haha
