Talking Point: Are You Spending More Money Than Ever on Digital Games?

Push Square: "With every game available simultaneously on the PlayStation Store now, digital transactions are becoming big business for Sony – but this wasn't always the case. In the early days of the PlayStation 3, downloadable titles consisted mostly of bitesized experiences – timewasters designed to fill the gap between retail releases. This has changed over the past five or so years, but have your spending habits moved with the times? We caught up with editors Sammy Barker and Robert Ramsey to see if they've embraced the so-called digital future."

Not really because most of the digital games I want end up becoming monthly free PS+ games.

True dat. I rarely buy digital games on PS4 because I know eventually, FREE!

Ill buy 1 here and there like Hotline Miami 2 is a must even though within the next 6 months to a year it will be free.


I do go digital most on the time these days.

I usually wait for a sale to buy a digital game. Like $5 to $10 or even less the $5 and may be $20.

Wind back 2 or so years ago, you wouldn't even have a PS+ subscription. So yes, we are all "spending more money than ever on digital".

RedDevils1229d ago

I only brought game that I know won't ever end up on plus, like Rockstar games

no. i no longer even have my cc info in my console lol.
i use cards for subscriptions , wait for indies to go free and never ever purchase dlc.
and in only the rarest of cases , buy a digital version of a game

Just with indie games and digital only. Still buy mainly physical media.

Still buy physical copies. If I don't like game, tired of it, etc., At least I can get some kind of trade in value for it. Digital I don't have that option.

nowitzki20041229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

For PS4 I love physical copies

For PC. I download.

Its a trick question because internet speeds are so much faster and we didnt even really start downloading games really til last gen. So of course we are spending more.
