Here's a nice twist to this story, as of today, I cannot log onto my PSN account, I get an error NP-2074-3 when I try.
After researching that number, it says tht my account is suspended for some reason. I have no idea why or for what duration. I'm just glad that I don't have to re-download anything right now!
So due to unknown reasons, SONY has removed my ability to redownload my paid content.
Another reason why i hate Digital Distribution. Get Perma Banned and all your purchases are null and voided.
I personally would go for Physical Media, Vita games are pretty big when you have a 4GB MemoryCard
and having the physical media makes you feel like you actuall own the game itself.
And now that it's over, I can log in and download the content that I PAID FOR.
Dude you know that you can keep all you digital games in the hard drive for your computer right?
You dont need to redownload it. I have a 1TB external hard drive where i keep all my digital games, and i dont need to acces my account to redownload it. I only got one 32 GB memory card and it will last forever cause once i beat the game, i back up the game on my hard drive and delete it to get the free space it was occuping.
Plus as someone said, you can always carry your digital games to the next gen systems nonetheless you cannot do it with digital copies unless SONY decide to add a retrocompatibility with the games of the past gen system.
BTW. I only got 1 physical copy (Metal Gear Solid Collection) and my other 30 games are digital only.
PD: The only bad side of it, is that some games are only physical (like FF crysis core). In that case ill just have to buy it physical :/
I've been buying digital only.
And while it's nice, I think I should go to Physical.
1. My memory card is filling up.
2. I'm used to being able to trade in games I don't play (haven't touched Uncharted, Gravity Rush, or Ninja Gaiden Sigma+ since I beat them). When I bought the PS3, I had over $200 in trade-in credit to put towards it.
I'm leaning towards physical myself!
The reason I had to redownload everything was that I was banned from logging in and accessing what I purchased. Oh and since I can log in now, I can also access the content the thief downloaded and I paid for!
Banned for getting my account hacked!
. . . . . . .
Banned for asking why in the forums!
I'm too much into buying Premium & Limited Editions to go all Digital! I only buy Digital if it's PS1 classics or PSP games as I don't own a PSP system!
