    PSN+ a year don't mind paying for it.

    Giving us free games when I already own it on disk :/ why?? don't like digital games that I might lose sometime down the line.
    Only cuts the price on map packs none of them are giving for free :/ I would prefer free map packs.

    People simply don't have the speed or data yet. Not to mention HDD space.
    Good lord, I have 55 PS3 games, I can't imagine how many terrabytes that equals.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    MS should've gone all out with DD if they really wanted to push it, not the half-assed attempt with a disc drive.

    Yep. I would agree. I can't download digital with my internet. Bandwidth restrictions.

    I'm lucky I haven't had to deal with that with my IP but lots of other people do.

    For me its simple:

    The Last Of Us / Uncharted = disc
    Indies or small games like Scott Pilgrim = digital download

    I would actually want to see my collection but not digitally

    A big thumbs up for Sony for doing this

    Digital is the way to go. I love having an all digital library. All my games on the PS4 will be digital downloads, day one purchases.

    Digital has its perks but nothing will ever beat having a physical copy for me.

    I definitely prefer to have a physical copy of a game as opposed to a digital, and I can't see that changing any time soon.

    Going to the store when the game first comes out and lining up to buy the game is a great feeling to have.

    When GTA V comes out this is one of those moments

    I was the same way, but I love seeing my digital collection on Steam grow just as much if not even more than physical copies. That said, I won't be doing that on consoles. I am still able to play my games when I upgrade to another computer. I won't be able to play my current digital copies on next-gen

    I bet on Steam the games are alot cheaper than on consoles, Sony does not pass the saving on which is daylight robbery!

    Nor disk based either. So why not just go digital on console?

    When I want to replay my games down the line, a physical copy is more reliable. There is no guarantee I can download my games later on.

    E: Of course the ridiculous prices.
