I'm ready for it, I rather go in my living to download the game then go to gamestop and deal with all their bull$H??.

Oh I absolutely agree. Being able to pre-download a game and then play it as soon as it's release date is active is a marvelous thing.

These hard drives are just very, very tiny.

Combine this with Steam pricing, and I'd gladly go all digital for next-gen games. Once I started gaming on PC, realized how many games I could get for next to nothing, digital didn't bother me so much anymore. Especially with be able to pre-load. No waiting in line, no hassle, no travel, just click play and you're good to go.

I think we are ready to embrace digital, just not at the expense of physical media. At the moment, I prefer physical on console, but on handheld, digital is my go to. Its just so much more convenient to have all your games on your handheld rather than fumbling through a bunch cards.

Ideally, I would choose digital over physical, but as we know, the world is far from ideal.

Just slowly put in digital gaming, but keep the physical media relevant. The world isnt ready for always online/digital, its still just too inconsistent.

I prefer physical and I hope it's here to stay. I honestly don't think manufacturing and shipping costs are higher than 5$ (at commercial quantity), and I'll gladly pay a little more for the freedom and value for money that physical media gives.
