Digital or Disc?

Post by OneBadHuskerFan on Wed Jul 10, 2013 12:53 pm

Just curious as to what everybody will be doing on the next gen consoles.  Are you going digital or will you still be buying the discs?

I'm leaning heavily towards going full digital at this point as I don't really care if I have the physical media.

I am definitely leaning towards full digital.  Been doing it with music for a long time and starting to do that with Movies now too.  I would absolutely make the switch if they made it worth while...  Cheaper or Free DLC content or something.

I'm about 98% sure ill be doing just digital.  I will still have discs from game fly so unless I purchase it from there after renting most of m purchases will be digital.  Unless there is a deal on amazon or what not for cheaper then it digital for me. If they lower the price point any that would be even better. But then again I doubt they would do that.

 Yeah, unfortunately I think that idea got crushed with the change in policies by the XB1.  I believe they were really pushing for a steam type distribution process.  People hated steam when it first came out, but now they love it.  I think that would have happened with whatever MS was planning.

Yeah, I am with OC.  I will definitely be consuming some physical media, GF and the like, but I expect to buying most other purchases digitally.

I don't know. As I really don't sell/trade a lot I could do all digital, but I will most likely do both. I like having the physic disc, and for more of the single player type games, that's what I'll probably go with so I can let others borrow them. The multiplayer games like COD I'll go for digitally. If there is any bonus for digital (earlier releases, cheaper, free DLC) I would probably go that way as well. If developers really want to cut out the used game market, they would look at adding incentives to the digital route.

I'll be going the physical disk route for the time being.  I just like having disks and having that game collection on my shelves.  I'm sure that I'll make a move to digital sometime, but not now.

Digital for the most part. For BIG launch games that I want to play I'll go disc, until they've proven beyond a doubt that I will have no issues booting up the game at midnight on launch night. Once that happens full digital.
