Would you get the All-Digital Edition if 100$ cheaper?

Yes 25 21.74%
No 81 70.43%
On the fence 9 7.83%

Let's say the regular PS5 is 500$ USD and the All-Digital PS5 is 400$, would you consider getting the all digital edition instead?

Nah I still want my physical since the stores sometimes have better deals on games compared to digital.

As an example with FFVIIR. Because I pre-ordered it during E3 pre-order sale, I got it for $54.96 CAD at launch when the normal price is $80 CAD.

Nah, I'm just gonna wait until the normal version drops in price.

Nope. UK prices for games on PSN is expensive compared to retail. Sticking with disks.

Oh and the console will also double as a UHD player as well.

Nope, over the course of the gen I'll be saving a ton more money than that by buying my games physically.

No. I have 4K Blu-ray discs, and I'd like to have the option to have physical games as well.

For 100$ less? Yeah sure! But that's minimun, anything less than $100 is a deal breaker here.
To me 100$ is the sweet spot for Discless vs Standard.

Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Not a chance. Physical games are cheaper than digital.

Plus, I have DVDs. If I don't have a disk drive in my console then I'd need to buy a separate DVD player, that'd be stupid.

At 399 it would be tempting but I really like physical for gaming that I'd rather just pay the extra hundred dollars and get the one with the disc drive. It's a good option for a lot of people who've already gone digital-only though.
