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.

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.
