I haven’t actually checked, but if only counting the games that are available in both formats, I guess more than 80%

With Xbox One X, I switch to 100% digital... I have 9 Disc from when I own a Xbox One. I heard Microsoft store was converting game to digital, therefore; I brought all my disc but unfortunatly that program never kicked off. I wish Microsoft offered a all digital Xbox Series X since I plan to remain all digital.

The only Disc, I'm happy owning is Syberia 3 because of the nostalgia from loving the series otherwise I would prefer to convert them to digital.

If the difference in price for a game is minimal I will buy physical since I trade my games in when I'm done.

My digital games are either my free games, digital only games or stupidly cheap games due to sales.

This year I bought physical copies of:

1) nioh 2 special edition
2) Ys 8 collectors edition
3) Ni No Kuni 2 collectors edition
4) Division 2
5) borderlands 3
6) GoT
7) FF7R delux edition

My digital purchases are:

1) ps plus games
2) Persona 5

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

100% digital.



About 40-59%. Though it's closer to 59%. Most of my Switch games are physical. Well over half of my PS4 purchases are digital.
I purchased all my 3DS and Wii U games physically (obviously not counting digital-only).
The reason I purchase most Switch games physically is because most or all of the game is on the cartridge. That's way different than the PS4 and its Blu-ray discs. And since Switch only supports microSD for expanding storage, the memory is far more expensive per GB. My Switch microSD is 128 GB, largely because I got it in 2017 when that size was more expensive. My PS4 external HDD is 2 TB.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 130 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 110 million (was 73, then 96 million)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

Since my emails were ignored. Here I am, John2290, sick of these weak reasoned and lengthy moderations for saying the wrong thing and a mod team that is doing everything it can to kill this site quicker. So now that I've actually broken a rule instead of mildly hurting someones feelings without even interacting with them, I request my Permban on John2290 and of course this account will be banned. Please and thank you and good luck keeping this site alive while you alienate people with silly moderation.

Please permaban both accounts as it'll only end up that way at some point regardless, I can't help what comes out of my fingers nor where the line of what peoples find offensive lies these days and this is the most ridiculous ban I've had yet. https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=9218671

@CGI please permaban me. Thank you in advance.



Normally all physical, however then Covid-19 hit. So I bought Tlou 2 digital.
FS 2020 was only available digitally here so that choice was made for me.

I can't remember if I bought any other games this year. There were some small ones, Streets of rage, Creaks and Cuphead. Oh yeah and Dreams, digital. So actually I haven't bought any physical games this year :/



Like 95% physical. 

Bonus questions: not interested in the digital-only consoles and I never purchased any of the ones available in the past.
