2tb hdd in my ps4 an I still say hard copy 100%
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 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.
Getting Older doesn't mean it's GAME OVER
My Top PS4 Games: Wolfenstein, InFamous Second Son Diablo 3, Saints Row 4
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.
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.
