Could you imagine having your hdd go out and have to re-download 2tb worth of games. That's one of the main reasons I like physical copies. I don't have to wait for it to download or re-download if something happens. It's a lot quicker getting off your **bleep** and going to the store to buy a game. For that matter you don't even have to do that since you can buy online and have it delivered.

On the PS4, disk space is irrelevent.

 

All games install 100% to the HDD.  Disk or digital.  Tomb Raider: DE is currently the only disc game I own, so I can only use it as an example.  It uses 17GB of my HDD.  I go to the PS Store to check the digital version.  It uses 17GB of disk space.  That is a whopping 0% space savings going physical over digital.

 

I pretty much prefer digital, but only because I like to use Remote Play on occassion.  Kinda sucks when I go out and leave a 3D Blu-ray in my PS4 rather than Tomb Raider, and I get the urge to play some TR while I'm down the street at Starbucks.

I used to prefer hardcopy, but ever since the PS4 I love digital. It's so convinient. I'll still be getting hardcopy for games that I want the limeted editions for, like Destiny.

I dont have a bunch of games but I love my disk collection! Its not like anyone has to pick one over the other I have a lot of digital only games also. But when it comes to AAA I go DISK. Walking dead Zen Pinball and others I buy digital. Assassins Creed and  TLOU Disk. You can own both. With stores like Amazon.com that delivers on Launch day you dont even have to go pick them up.


I Enjoy Gaming I don't hate anything about it!
The reason to buy a NEW console is to play NEW Games not old ones.

I thought I'd always prefer hard copies, but I'm pretty sure that was just because that's what I was used to.  Overall, I've discovered I don't much care.

I recently decided to go all digital. This way I cant be tempted to trade them in and I dont need shelves and clutter for storing physical games. If the physical game and digital game take up the same amount of hard drive space I might as well streamline it.

Depends.

Some games I will buy as a disc - I will play it and sell it to BestBuy or GameStop. Recent example - Wolfenstein (good game, btw - and quite underrated)

Other games, I know I will be using often - then I go digital. I preordered Destiny as a download and I have BF4 digital as well.

I prefer physical copies of video games, especially if they have large file sizes and cost more than a few dollars. I’m not very accepting of digital distribution when it comes to video games and I might not support certain video games if their developers and publishers cannot be bothered to sell me physical copies of them.
