Hardcopy over digital...which do you prefer?

63 replies 414 views Edited Aug 2, 2014

I prefer the hardcopy myself....there is just something about having a physical copy of a game compared to its digital counterpart...

I always preferred retail over digital, but since my console of gaming nowadays is the PSV, where games lack manuals and whatnot, I'm not so **bleep** about it. The only thing that prevents me from going full digital is the exacerbated cost of memcards, but the deals on PSN are sometimes too good vs reals on retail~.

Hardcopy, this way if I rage I can take it out on the disc instead of my console or controller

I prefer hardcopies because I like having the actual game in my hands, and I can bring it to my friends house for example, but more importantly it uses less hard drive space. I don't mind buying digital games if I cannot buy a retail copy though.

The only reason I buy digital is if it's a **bleep** good game that's worth having forever and to share with my brother on his PS4/PS3 for basically half the cost so we only need to buy 1 copy.

I usually will get both if it's a game I like and play often. I wait for price drops anyways before buying games. Since I have PS+ I'll wait for a "Flash Sale' or discounted digital version when it's available.Woman Happy

What did I say? Everyone knows that anyone who uses your primary system can use the digital content you have purchased.

Hardcopy, so it takes up less space. Unless it's a game that is only available digitally.
