Nintendo has included enough incentives to make a digital purchase a no-brainer for most players over buying the physical version.
Why you should never read an article from thegamer.com. Reasons for buying Link's Awakening digital because you get 3 dollars in Nintendo zingers and you can play it at midnight 😭
I'm sorry but the 300 points and getting it early is nowhere near enough to make it worth canceling my preorder of the physical edition and go digital. Most of us that like physical copies of games do it so we actually feel like we own something that we can have forever. That 60 dollar rental will never be that enticing for us regardless of the little digital bonuses they tack on. Look, this is just my opinion. If you like buying all your games digitally that is great for you. I buy indie games digital all the time, and if a game is at a deep discount then I'll pick it up digitally as well. I love the fact that i can just start a game up with no disc/card, but the only thing that will get me to completely stop buying physical copies of games is when they stop making them. When that eventually happens i will no longer spend anywhere near as much money as i do on games and will most likely only pick games up on sale. Also i will never buy a remaster of a game at that point if i can buy the game physically on older hardware.
Nope, physical for me.
But if there's ever a game people want to own physically it's a remaster of a popular classic, and you'll have to offer the moon to get them to change their mind.
I'd rather spend £40 on retail than £50 on digital thanks. Like I see ads of Nintendo going "GET £5 WORTH OF POINTS IF YOU GET IT DIGITALLY" I can literally save myself £10 of ACTUAL MONEY by going retail...
Nah, I'll stick to physical copies on the Switch. Thanks
Not really much of an incentive, dude. Physical's still the way to go. Plus as for playing at Midnight... if you go to Walmart, for example, and ask if you can get a copy, they'll often go in back and grab you one even if it's not on the shelf yet, so long as it's in the system and it's the release date. They do it for movies too.
The game already leaked so if you're modded, you're playin' it now.
I got a discount for physical already
Nope, still buying it physically. I like to actually own my games and admire the cover art sitting on my shelf.
Nah I collect. So physical for me.
