We can only hope so.

Ahah. The number is litteraly skewed by PC sales and digital only published titles.

Once again we got people jumping on the all digital train while physical sales are still too important to be reasonably ditch by any publishers.

Well to ad to the debate, When has crapcom ever released a full physical game on Switch? Hard to buy physical when the option isn't there.



 

 

Ah well, no cheap second hand stuff for me anymore I guess. No more games as birthday presents. You can't even resell the console if the games are linked to a user account.



When physical goes, I go.

With hundreds and hundreds of physical games in my library last gen, I thought I'd never go digital. Then I got a PSP and didn't want to deal with fragile UMDs. Only a handful of times did I ever go digital (unless a game was digital only) last gen or early 8th gen. I was a collector.

I think it was when I got my second XBO and realized the benefits of digital. Been 100% digital every since.

Maybe in the PC world. I don't know. I own a least two of every major home and portable console released since 2005 (except Ouya--i only own one) and I've never had any issues with digital.

Well, Lost Winds on Wii wouldn't transfer and be Animal Crossing on switch won't let me transfer save data but that's it. Out of literally thousands of games purchased, I think that's okay.

Capcom is one of those companies that releases their physical Switch games as priced insanely high, with only half the game on the cartridge, and quick sale prices for the digital version. So of course their digital take is going to be 80%. They are hamstringing their physical sales on purpose, just so they can come to the conclusion of this very thread's OP.

The day will come when physical copies MSRP is marked up significantly higher than digital simply because they aren't making much money off them.

Hopefully that will be due to Digital game prices falling, and not publishers being dicks to physical customers. Digital AAA games really need to sell for $45 on release day, considering how much of digital sales revenue goes directly to the publisher.
