This is not a "digital vs. physical media" debate. (Although I can see it evolving into one.)
When there's an option to buy a physical or digital version of a game, my default choice is physical. But when it comes down to it, I'll buy digital if the physical version of the game is out of print, and the price of the physical version is too high beyond reason. I would have loved to own a copy of the Gravity Rush Remaster for the PS4. Original priced at $30, I should have pick it up when I can since it was a very limited run. It easily runs for almost 3x as much on eBay for the US version. You can get it on sale on the PSN for $15. So it was too tempting to pass up given the reality of the physical release on the gray market. Honestly, I'd buy a near mint copy of the original for $30 over the current digital sale price, but at this point I cannot really complain. Thankfully, Gravity Rush 2 has yet to succumb to gray market gouging. I'll be keeping an eye out on this one.
What games would you have preferred to have a physical copy of, but had to resort to buying digital?Last edited by LivingMetal - on 09 January 2018
