Physical for many reason.
*Can be cheaper sometimes
*No need to be connected to the internet to buy or download the games then
*No chance of the download being interrupted since no download required
*If a game is taken off the digital store (like Too Human) it'll still be possible to find a physical copy of the game
*Harddrive space is limited to the games saves and update, not the game as well
*Ability to play the game at a friend's house without having to download on to the friend's system
*The ability to rent the game
*The ability to return the game if i don't happen to like it
*Physical games can be sold later on, which you can then used to acquired money to buy another game
*No matter how old the game, you will almost always be able to find a physical copy of a game, new or used, opposed to a digital copy of the game
*No need to spend time downloading the games if your system breaks down and you get a new one, or transferring the license in the 360's case

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?

Wait until the network is back up a few hours or days later. :P

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

I definitely prefer a physical copy. Even with cable internet it takes forever to download a game. Plus, I have a monthly download limit with my ISP.

Digital. Steam prices just can't be beat.

PC=/= Consoles

Steam is PC only.
PC games have no royalty fees, which results in a much lower cost.
All console games have to pay royalty fees to get their game on a particular console....which drives up the cost.

Last time I checked, the average royalty fee was around $12 or $13 bucks (per game)...although it varies from company to company (Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo).

So the comparison is flawed.

Physical of course. Read about too many bad things happening to digital copies of games.

Of course I'm not filthy rich to re-purchase digital copies of games I already had if something goes wrong, like a lot of people here are.
