PC Gaming ($32 Billion) is more than 50% of all digital gaming. Nice to know that PC Gaming is dead.

The rumours of our demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Only people who keep saying "PC gaming is dead" are the PC gamers.

Not surprised so many ppl on my friends list went all digital I have gone half digital, only games I buy on disk are ones I plan to sell right after completing or games that had good deals.

I only buy digital if it's real cheap on sale otherwise buy physical... I like to get cash or credit for my games when I'm done with them

I feel like I'm old school. I still prefer physical over digital...

I can't get over the fact that somehow downloaded games are called 'digital'. It's weird since games are always digital! What do people think is on the disc? Something analog? :)

I think it's based on the manner of exchange. You pick up a physical copy or acquire it digitally.

But yes, in terms of code both are digital
