HAHAHAHAHAH this site cracks me up..................physical is the industry and it will remain the dominant force for the next 50 years

Whoever disagrees with this is in denial. Only dumb people would buy a console that had no physical media, have fun being slaved to your shit DRM, EULA, etc. because you won't own a single thing.

I disagree 100% let's look at the facts.

Digital don't require any space in your hom
Digital cannot break in two or have coffee split on it
Digital is faster to obtain and easier to access
Digital loads content quicker and runs better

Sure physical content has benefits too but i think having everything on one hard drive running quicker, taking less space and being easier to access is much better.

So you're willing to give up your rights for some false "info?"

Digital requires hard drive space, leading up to more hard drives if you need to. But, if you don't have games, how can you enjoy the art work on the disk, in the manual, on the back, etc. You can't.

Digital can't "break," but digital CAN be lost of you delete it and you can't redownload because of server problems, I've had this happen twice on 360 and my cousin once on PSN. Nowhere near where it should be.

Digital won't run any different from a game installed on your hard drive.

Digital, for how many rights you give up with it, doesn't give you anything worth it. I don't know about you, but I don't know many people who don't like to have physical media and an actual collection you can show something for and is still worth something even after you buy it. You can't trade/sell digital. You also can't collect it either. It's useless.

Digital can't give you this feeling, a feeling which I've worked for and won't give up for the game it's self:

Couldn't agree more.

50 years?!?

You people have actual mental problems if you actually think that. Technology is one of the fastest progressing fields on all of planet earth and will continue to remain so. We will be D/Ling games into our head in 50 years. Think of technology 50 years ago, our cellphones are as powerful as the first computers sent to space. Some people are so short sighted.

I'll always prefer a physical copy of a game to a digital one. That being said, if the games are as reasonably priced as games seem to be on steam (I'm a console player) then I'd consider hearing them out.
I just much prefer having the game in my collection, being able to lend them to friends, flick through the manual, admire the box art and sell them on when im done with them. Those things will always be a big factor to me.

If they ever go digital and there is no physical copy of a game one purchases then I am afraid and disapointed to have to be hanging my controller up for good. I cant afford to have to buy games new everytime, and I dont like how I cant lend my friends any games. I hope it doesnt come to this.

people want physical merchandise id want my games as discs not digital downloads.
