The industry is shifting to the digital realm, but will you be embracing digital downloads right off the bat? Or will you be using discs like always?
No, physical discs As a collector I will always prefer physical copies to digital
Same here. I don't mind downloading the occasional shorter experience like Journey or Limbo, but I always get the bigger blockbusters on disc. It comes in handy when I'm strapped for cash too.
Agreed. It's nice to see all those game cases stacked together and you can actually see YOUR game with your eyes. I don't like digital that much. As long as there is a CHOICE I'll go with physical any time.
I also prefer having a physical copy, and I'll have a hard time deciding which two or three to get first. I will be downloading some games right away also though, namely Drive Club, Planetside 2, and DC Universe, if the latter two are available at launch of course. Between all those and whatever I can get for Christmas, I'll be having a good time indeed.
PS+ subscribers get to download Drive Club free so that is the 1, and most likely only, game I will download on the PS4. I am a Plus subscriber so I'm going to take advantage of that offer but I strongly prefer physical media over DD. Once I own a game I prefer having the option to trade it or sell it off if it runs it's course and I don't think I will have much use for it again. You have no value with Digital Download. DD is just not for me unless it's free.
"DD is just not for me unless it's free." For "big" games I agree, but I do like me some indie titles and usually DD is the only option, unless they release a collection like with Flow, Flower, and Journey. Also, if something I bought on disc becomes free on PS+ I'll probably trade the disc in toward something else. You can click "Download" then cancel it, and you'll always have the option to download it later.
Short answer: No. Long answer: Hell No.
Only downloadable games ill be downloading are indie games, any games that have a physical copy ill buy as a disc since I collect my games, unless the game sucks, ill return it & buy another. Sorry but money dont grow on trees & you have to be a classic to be in my collection.
A man will buy KZ and Knack physical then get Driveclub free on + cause Sony is awesome
Depends on how you look at it. Technically the 'free' games you get with Playstation Plus are paid for since its part of your paid subscription. So for me, yeah. My first game purchase will be digital. DriveClub Plus Edition.
YES My first purchase of Battlefield 4 will be physical because it will be bundled with the system. But after that I will be trying to go digital as much as possible because of the potential of Remote Play on the Vita. Purchasing digital ensures that I can play my entire library while I'm away and not just the one disk that's in the system. However, games that I intend to later sell will obviously still be physical purchases.
Ahhhh, good point.
thats the incentive of going digital.
It's great that they can provide a good incentive for going digital without restricting us with DRM. Plus I think that if the feature is implemented well it could be a good boost to Vita sales.
It will be interesting to see how big a full download is. I never upgraded my PS3's HDD but I may go for it right away with PS4.
Depends if I get home and download Drive Club PS+ edition first, or pop in either KZ:SF or BF4. The possibilities are endless. One thing is for sure, I will be having a very happy holiday season with my PS4, my family and friends. Like this...... http://jonarogers.files.wor...
U really don't need 2 buy a game day 1 free indies f2p driveclub think u Sony .
Im going all digital when i get my PS4, i have too many games around my media center so going all digital will help a lot. Plus im putting a 1TB hard drive in my PS4 day one.
Physical Discs as always.
Physical for sure. I wish Sony would institute a digital buy back for the PS Store tho. I wish I could sell back all those dlc's for games I dont play anymore.
