I will only purchase a digital copy of a game, if that's the sole option available - otherwise, it's physical release always!!!!!!!
Why anyone would choose a digital copy of a game over physically owning the cartridge/disc, has never made sense to me. I do understand the "instant gratification" of being able to purchase and immediately having a game, without ever having to leave your couch - but that copy is never yours. What happens in 5-8yrs when the console your bought it on, becomes obsolete and they shut-down the server where you download the game from? And, not that I would ever do such a thing - but what about those who like to trade in or sell (or even lend) copies of their game???
Digital has its advantages, but it also has MAJOR disadvantages and I fear the day these companies decide to go "digital only"... :(
