Buy or Down Load Games ?

19 replies 260 views Edited May 19, 2013

aliens game.jpgblack ops.jpgI need some advice on future games I want to buy. What do most of you big time gamers do. Are you downloading from the ps store or sticking to having the box in your hand ? I bought a few from the ps store in the past few months but I am woundering what will happen if I buy a game I don't like I can't sell it then or trade it in. I am really pleased with these two I got recent. What do you all think ?

Ps3 games I buy so I can put the game cases next to my other system games to build and show off my collection. I do however buy some games online like PSP games to play on my Vita or PS1 games if its a great deal going on.

For the most part, I bought my disc versions but I have been considering buying my games digitally, at least franchises that I like. I buy PSP games digitally to play on my Vita and I buy PS1 classics digitally.

Some I buy from PSN (Most Recent: AC3 Flash Sale Bundle) and others I buy physically (Bioshock Infinite). I truly have no preference. I have never brought a game that I wanted to return. You can't return games on PSN for the most part.

If you like A:CM, you are in the vast minority...  that game pretty much tanked on both PS3 and 360 as far as I know.

 

At any rate...  I really don't have a preference, as I generally don't trade games in, unless I really, really don't like them, in which case, if there was a demo, I probably wouldn't buy them in the first place.

 

As a PS+ member, however, I'm having to keep an eye on my space available, especially on my Vita.  Currently, I have 94/465GB free on my PS3 and 1.1/29GB free on my Vita.

I ran out of space on both my PS3 and on my Vita. lol I need a bigger hard drive for my PS3 and a bigger memory card for my Vita.

I like "collecting" my games. I rarely ever trade / sell them.

But, I like to know if I absolutely needed to, I can -- Unlike digital games.

 

Obviously I don't have a choice when it comes to titles that are PSN only.
