i want to know which one you like more and why?
i like to own some digital games and i think it's the future of gaming but i have a slow internet connection which means i need forever to download the smallest game lol so i'm forced to buy the disc.
both have their advantages:
physical: you can take it anywhere with you (friend's house,cousins...) and you save up the agony of downloading and don't get a huge bill for internet usage.
neagtif: discs gets scratched,lost,stolen...
Digital: you get any game you like from the confort of your home anytime anywhere.
negatif: you lose everything if the hard disc is damaged or corrupted and you have to wait for long downloads to finish and also increase your internet bill.
both are great some people prefer to own something that they can touch and feel while others like to have a library of games installed on their console.
some games have awsome covers like dead island riptide red and black cover art looks bad **bleep** and loved tomb raider case too
look at xbox i try change a simple email address iand it bug out been 2 months still not fix and i had over 10 games digital games guess what i cant play any cause they not on my hard drive cause i cant log in my account and contact xbox for 3 weeks everyday all i get from them is they working on it and the advocary team will call me or email but this time around wont even buy a xbox and soley stick with playstation this time around if xbox fix it i dont care im through with xbox
i like having all game console soley on exclusive
i perfer physical but i know ill buy some digital games yet
Personally, I prefer physical copies. All my life I've loved having a physical game collection and things cover art and collectors additions. Something about not having the game physically makes me feel like I don't really own it...
I would always rather have a game on a disc, then have a digital copy of a game. With a game on a disc, if the game is terrible and you hate the game and never want to play the game again, you could sell the game for pennies on the dollar. Or you could use the disc as a coffee coaster, or you could use the disc to play "Air Hockey" with.

both are good in their own right but i prefer physical
With a physical collection of games i have something to admire and be proud of
i also like the feeling of going to the store and picking up a brand new game that you've been waiting for months to get your hands on, that excited hyped up feeling i get when i drive to store all giddy and hoping there isn't to big of a line. driving home with it all excited looking at the cover and back of the case
i don't get that same feeling with digital games, i mean sure a game is a game no matter how you get it but slow downloading times and installing times just take it all away for me, depending on how big the game is i could be waiting severtal hours for a game to finish downloading and then i have to install when i could have just spend 30 minutes and went to the store and bought it there
With physical games you can also get posters or maps with the game like Bethesda and rockstar do with their games and you get the case maybe it's because i'm somewhat of a collector but i enjoy looking at all my games on the shelf
The only drawbacks though are:
- you get hacked and sony decides not to help, you lose EVERYTHING.
- You lose your internet access due to ISP issues or shutoff, you lose everything.
- All is tied to an account and not really "Yours".
I will always pick physical over digital, unless the only way to get the game is digital only. I like seeing and touching my collection of games. I like to stack my games up and make a little library to look at whenever I have friends over. I won't get that satisfaction with digital. If my ps3 die's again, I can just get a new one and just play my old games without having to download everything again. I do see the convenience of digital but I love holding my collection in my hands.

I prefer physical copies of video games to digital copies. If you take care of your video games then "scratched discs" aren’t an issue. This seems to be one of the main arguments against physical copies. In my honest opinion, there aren’t very many advantages to owning digital copies of video games.
There were some really good posts made about this topic last month (i.e., ones that turned out to be posts of the week):
