im sure many would. i would go the digital only route if it was less than a physical copy. for us console owners though thats from the truth. old games that can be picked up for 20 dollars or less get put on the store for full price or maybe 40. sort of defeats the purpose.

prob with digital is that you can't sell those games, unless you sell them all on the one account or create an account for every game you download. I like physical cause i know i can trade it in. I don't understand why video game developers complain so much about the used market. Every product out their has a used market and the only one i see complaining the most is the video game industry. No company has the right to tell us what to do with our copy, no matter how many stupid ULA they throw at us. If the video game industry gets away with what their trying to do to eliminate used sales. Next thing we know cant sell our iphones or our car.

I'm not sure. I had intended to pick up a copy of Chrono Cross up until it was announced for PSN, so I suppose that is some evidence right there... I love having something on my bookshelves, though. Lol.

No. With physical copies I feel more secure in my ownership of a game.

I would. I like digital. It's fast and easy.

I would too if it was a lot cheaper..

-but since that's never going to happen I'll just keep getting the Disc, at least then I can actually sell the sucka, if I so call choose to do so..

Options, I like options..

I like both. With digital all I have to do is a simple click and I can play a game.
