All AAA games physical, cheap as hell 3rd-pick games digitally.

100% digital for many years now.



20 retail games of which 18 are physical.

Got 18 more downloadable games, and maybe some of them have had physical re-releases since then.
Wont count them as retail since they were initially digital only games.

You say tomato, I say tomato 

"¡Viva la Ñ!"

I try to buy everything physical but sometimes sales are really good for certain digital games. Im probably around 85-90% physical on PS4 and 100% on Switch.

Assuming you are talking just about the current generation, I don’t have a single physical game...

Damn.

I knew teachers don't get paid well, but not being able to afford video games is worse than I imagined.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Hahaha, sadly very close to true...



100% physical, I never owned a digital-only console and I never will buy one. Should the future be digital-only, I will continue to play only on retro-consoles. I love to collect games (actually, with no intention to sell them), I love to own games (which you can't digitally) and I like to bring them to my friends. I have good hope that physical will not go away, after all we still can buy music CD's (even vinyl) and film DVD's and Blu-rays/Ultra HD Blu-rays. Music and film have the advantage that there are many different suppliers offering players, however, for gaming we have only the big 3, once this big 3 decide to go digital-only, there will be no other supplier offering a console playing physical media. However, at least Nintendo will remain physical. I was so happy to read their last Corporate Management Policy Briefing, released on September 16 (https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/events/index.html). In their future outlook for long-term initiatives (starting on page 43) they explicitly commit themselves to physical media (page 50).
