Sean @ FG: As the percentage of digital game sales compared to boxed products grows across the board, Sean takes a look at the positives and negatives of “ditching the disk”.
I buy a lot of digital games, but I could never outright ignore physical games
Single player games i want physical copies of, multiplayer I could care less.
Apologies for being critical, but I do not believe any "Digital vs. Physical" article is serious if they do not realize how much of the environment digital games save. The hard plastic covers and discs, paper prints, logistics and manufacturing behind it, are the worst environmentally. I do digital honestly partly because of it being environment friendly. I don't want to become of those "I don't care, as long as I get everything cheap" people, and vote with my wallet to save nature as much as I can. A good article about this would delve deeper in the business side of it as well, I think gamesindustry.biz had some deeper stuff written about this a few years back, going into detail.
Thanks. I'll take a look at that. And you're right,. There are environmental factors I missed entirely.
I respect you for taking time to reply and accepting criticism. Also, you probably want to fix the grammar and writing mistakes! ;) Good luck with your future articles!
Yeah, I've just done an editing pass on it. Was written on 3 hours sleep and it looked fine when I published it but this morning, in the pale light of day... Yeah. Yeesh.
