Japan's physical game market up 82.5% YOY in August

The Japanese physical video game market was valued at ¥29.8bn in August, up 82.5 per cent year-on-year, according to the latest figures from Famitsu. This is down to a huge 206.8 per cent spike in hardware sales, prompted mainly by the Nintendo Switch, as well as a 21.3 per cent rise in software sales. As a result, this is the third consecutive month of year-on-year growth for Japan's gaming market.

The story is too old to be commented.

Physical is best imo. Nothing like having a catalogue of games you can grasp and resell if you have to

Digital is convenient and all but ill buy physical for as long as i can.. There's no telling if you want to re download something and they removed it from the store so your money is wasted..
