Retail or Downloaded vita game? Which one do you do?

20 replies 332 views Edited May 6, 2012

     I prefer Retail, even if it cost like maybe 5-7 bucks more after taxes. I like literally owning something and not download stuff. I mean I know some games are only download only but their usually the games that are smaller in file size. 3-2 gigs is too much for me to put on my 8gb memstick, plus I could imagine over time the 32gb getting too filled up with it.

i buy all my vita games off of amazon, i usually get them for the actual retail price, with no tax and free shipping, plus if u havent already u can get a prime trial membership and get free 2 day shipping, but i like paying the extra 4 bucks to have it overnight shipped on that prime membership

Pretty much this right here. I got Vita and most of my games from Amazon in the first place. Physical games are better than digital.

Digital versions of games is more convenient and sometimes less expensive but I just like to have the physical copy when possible.

I like to have the real deal because it is less memory. Most of the time the games you download and buy from a store are the same price (besides tax). It might not be as convenient as downloading but I prefer having the game and using less memory.

I'm a retail person, I still buy downloads though like if there only an download exclusive. I just like having a physical collection. But the Vita kinda makes me want to go digital, I don't like how it fills up the Live Area with unessarry Icons for retail games that arent even in. I wish it just showed the game that's currently in.

I usually buy my video games via Amazon. I just like having a physical game and also it helps with the memory.

I prefer digital download only. I have a 32GB card. I dont use my memory for videos, mp3's, or movies! I have other devices for that. My Vita memory is dedicated to games! I hate physical games. I have one physical game, Little Deviants, and I dont keep it in the Vita. Why? Because it wastes precious time loading up everytime you power on Vita! So I just leave it in the case. I love the instant access of the three digital games I have on Vita. I still have 24GB of free memory on my memory card for future titles :-) I will never tediously swap out game cartridges, or try and resell software that you cant get much for anyway.

I always buy physical copies if they are available, and always will.

Right now, it's actually cheaper to get physical copies of games anyway, once you factor in the current cost of memory cards, and personally, I like having something I can keep, sell, loan, or give to a friend, if I choose to.
