Re: whos going all digital on ps4?

Jun 27, 2013

It would depend on the price, the size and if it's cheaper than anything in store. Generally I wouldn't spend any more than $25 on any digital copy that you can't lend or sell or possibly even play 10 years down the road. On principle alone though it's way better to cut out the middle man than support a box store like Walmart. Since there's no middle man, there's no markups, no distribution, no pollution released in the air from an idling shipment truck etc Sony & the developers should see more profits so win-win.

 

Picking a game out & having it downloaded by the next day(and not paying tax) is tempting. Who knows, though. Current gen I have to either love a game or I don't bother with it. Next gen I may love so much I'll want physical copies of everything.

I will probably go all digital. I do now with my PS3. I don't care about resale or such. The disc versions of my games are just sitting there collecting dust and taking space. I hate having to look for my games or worry about scratches. With the excpection of Dragons Dogma (Since that isn't sold digitally) I haven't purchased a disc-based game since Novemeber of last year! And I'm completely satisfied with it. Smiley Happy

I won't go digital because of the dinky hard drive that it comes with. I will probably put the biggest hard drive I can in my PS4 day 1. That's also the only reason I refuse to buy the xbox one, a small 500gb hard drive that can't be changed.

Its too early for me to say yes, there are still a bunch of things that need to be fleshed out in the console sphere before I'm comfortable doing that.

I'll still be buying physical copies. How else am I going to smell the manual of a brand new game?

Will still be getting disc mostly, if the digital version has a great price I might pick it up that way.

I like having a physical copy. Even with our fast internet speeds it's still faster to go to the store and buy it than it is to download most $60 games these days anyways.

I won't, Unless prices are compelling and and there is some sort of feature to back up the digital data

I will only buy digital if there's no other option available. I just love to have a library of great games all standing together in a rack.
