Intenet is getting faster and faster, no brainer digital sales will take over physical in the future. When you can download shitbytes of data in minutes, why bother buying physical?

Cuz having the ownership of your games physically means that you actually own it. Not the case with digital, you only get the license to use the software.

And not everyone has an internet connection that can download "shitbytes". Lol, with games going around the 100+ GB to download, it could be your whole monthly data cap that goes just because of one game.

Mobile net has data cap, most of the internet services for home have no "data cap" otherwise I wouldn't be able to watch netflix in HD as much as I do while downloading shitbytes on PC costantly.

 

Not to mention all the  twitch streams i constantly watch, only by watching twitch streams, dozens of gigabytes of data are downloaded in a single week. If there were caps on internet data of people nowadays nobody wouldn't be able to watch even some twitch stream man.

Why would somebody go for digital on a console? A physical copy is $15 cheaper due to discounts at Best Buy. The digital copy offers no benefits, and has a value of $0.00 after purchase. Even if you don't want to drive, just order it on Amazon and you still save 20% with prime.

Maybe most who bought digital are playing it on PC.



For me the problem is that with digital you rely on the internet (Sony) to continue allowing you to download your games, physical I dont ever need to worry about that. Having a local copy feels the best method.

Out of curiosity, what problem do you have with the direction? 

They didnt change up franchise much and from what ive heard its more of the same.

Ah, ok. Having played the game I think that's a valid criticism. I was remembering the protest from the announcement about the villian being a Christian and was wondering if that was still prevalent.

I get that, but it still doesn't answer my question. Games like Horizon selling 35% digital is puzzling. It's an exclusive, and there's not really any benefits to digital over physical, on a console. The only explanation is that people just don't know about physical being cheaper.

Well for one thing, when I'm done with the game I can sell my physical copy to get money off my next game. Also digital games tend to drop in price much slower than they do at retail so I tend to get better value from physical copies as well.

Not in Canada mate. We do have data cap for internet services :P You can buy an unlimited one if you want but you'll pay a big monthly fee for that ...

You can gameshare the game to your friends/family so both of you have the game without having to buy a second copy. It's also a lot more convenient just putting your credit card in the system rather going to the store, for many people.

For me personally, I do it because more of my money goes to the developers when compared to physical. 



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
