Not going to get involved in that GameStop is dying, digital is the future thread because I know how futile reasoning with people on this issue is, but I just want to say props for pointing out the obvious flaws in such a future. People think publishers are crap now, wait until they can bend you over a barrel with no competition to check them.
And so many people fail to grasp the concept of right of first purchase and that its absence is THE reason that all digital became the favored way of doing things on PC. That is a lovely benefit consoles have that people seem dead set to throw away.
I'm personally happy to see the Switch maintain the physical medium but also make considerable strides towards restoring the "play now" convenience consoles built their empire on through advances (finally) in physical media.
I've been nearly 100% physical for a while. I have not spent a single dime on digital for any title that is available at retail (I have several digital copies I got for free as a promo or gift), and I've even been reluctant to spend money on smaller digital titles. Aside from the occasional Virtual Console purchase, the last digital titles I bought were Perfect Dark HD and Mega Man 10, and that was in 2010. I'll probably make another exception this year for Sonic Mania and Ultra Street Fighter II, but that's it. I'm uncomfortable with spending any considerable amount of money on something I don't own.
If console gaming ever goes full digital, then I'm out. The industry would no longer deserve my money. I'll still have at least seven console generations worth of content to enjoy.
Out of curiosity, who's your favourite IV character?
Hey my beloved shadow!
I have to ask you something, because as an I expert you are, I feel that you will probably illuminate me
I'm from Greece and live there, if I purchase a wii u from amazon.us for example, this will be tracked to American sales number or European/Greek?
Even if you don't know, what do you think?
I always get you confused with the other Shadow guy from the PS thread.

Acevil said: Because it is their business to make sure data is secret. People pay for those numbers. Only reason some market reaearch forms might share data is to show sneak peak at analysis. But they freely shared numbers, especially hardware numbers, for many years with no problem. It was only recently that they started being super-secretive, with all this cloak-and-dagger...
With the NPD having finally cut the general public off from their numbers, with whatever numbers we do get coming from publisher PR releases (and so far the only hardware figure we've gotten in 2017 is the Switch's sales in March), that effectively leaves VGC as the only game in town when it comes to numbers. However, VGC has received a lot of criticism over the years due to their numbers often...
