I'm 90% digital 10% Physical for Xbox One
93% digital 7% physical for PS4
98% digital 2% physical with Switch

Probably 11% physical and 89% digital

Switching games is annoying , It affects me since there are 30 + games to play that constantly switching because of friends .While 3rd -7th gen I had no friends online to play with especially PS3/Xbox 360 era maybe few but always playing on PS4 from 20 indies to 4 fighting games to few first shooters .is exausting with friends.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

I'm almost completely digital and have been since the later days of the PS3. I'm in the 0-10% bracket because the only time I buy physical games is when I consider the game to either be exceptional and feel the urge to have a physical copy, or in the case of crowdfunding. Even in those few cases, I still buy a digital copy for convenience.

I have also been into streaming for about 4 years now. I started a bit earlier, trying out OnLive (2012 ish) for a bit before PS Now launched in 2015 (UK) and I've kept up a subscription ever since, it works really well for me. I mostly use streaming for games I'm interested in but don't really care if I can't replay in 5 years. I also find it good for discovering new games which I might then buy when they are cheap. I would never be happy with a completely streamed future but if it ever comes to that, I won't walk away from games either. The truth is that despite how much I love old games, the number I return to regularly is low so I'll still get value from playing streamed games that may not exist in 10 years.

I buy physical most of the time, so that I can resell my games. But, I'm too busy to resell often these days. So, I think digital will likely get an increasing portion of my gaming spend going forward. If I'm not going to resell, I prefer the convenience of digital. With that said, I won't pay significantly more for a digital game. So, if the game is a year or more old, and I don't want to wait for a sale, I'm likely going to go with a used, physical copy.

Quite frankly even digital games these days are quite cheap if you keep an eye out

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

On consoles, I am around 70% digital. I prefer having all the games that I like on physical form, I love collecting them. The digital games that I own, are mostly deals on games that I wasn't gonna go out of my way to get but seemed a bit interesting.

On PC it's a different story, 100% digital. There is no reason to get anything physical since you get a code almost always anyways.

Last I checked I'm 100% physical, all the atoms in my body are physical =p

I buy all the games I like physical, only buy digital when the discount is very very big and I don't care much about the game.

Games that aren’t physical don’t exist to me.



For games, I'm mostly digital (no streaming), Music and movies are all physical.



The only games I buy physical editions of, are CDPR collector's editions.

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait... WAIT... are you saying that when you want to listen to a song you actually fish out the CD and put it in a CD player like cavemen used to do?
