    I never usually pre-order games but there was one time i didn't get to GameStop in time to get a copy of Heavy Rain and all that was left were pre-order copies. So i had to go out of the way 15 minutes to another city to get it in an ice storm no less. I was pissed, but i had to have that game that night. So these days i'll pre-order if i really want the game on day one.

    Simple: Digital is more expensive for me than buying physical copy.

    Ok, in some games, you get bonuses for preordering.
    ...but apart from this, I see no advantage?!
    I only pre order a few games each year, and when i do, its only in the hope that i might get it in the mail 1-2 days before the release date, which happend with TLoU

    I really dont see any benefit here in Norway besides that.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    So you can rub it in your friends faces that you got the game before them.

    Its good for people who are really bad at saving money. Think of it like layaway. Preorder it for $5 and every week throw a couple bucks on it and by the time it comes out your guaranteed a copy and its already paid off.

    Besides whatever exclusive dlc preordering entitles you too (im not fond of these exclusive preorder bonus's i might add) it makes sure they have a copy for you whenever you go to pick it up. Not everyone is fond of the idea of an all digital future. I like to own the things I buy personally.

    The reason why did I pre-order those PS4 games. Bestbuy offered a good deal on them.

    For Me it's a couple of reasons why I would preorder a game. Digital is almost always more expensive. If I pre order from an online store (here in Sweden) I get it on release day (if not earlier) in the mail. Often there is some kind of preorder DLC or such. And I prefer to have a physical copy of the game. For around 600 SEK (about $90) I really want the game in My hand, I would never pay that much for a digital copy.

    Because a fysical copy offers so much more value right?

    It would be pretty neat if you could pre-order digital games on the PSN-store, so it starts downloading the moment it releases.
    Actually, this exists already.


    Pre-orders
    Go to the front of the queue and get the hottest releases direct to your PS3.
    Get the game delivered automatically to your PlayStation Store Download List at midnight on the day of release.
    Be the first to play the game and receive exclusive pre-order content.
    Visit PlayStation Store now to check the latest pre-order offers.

    Definitely feels like that there's more value to a physical copy. You get the disc and hopefully a nice looking box. Doesn't really feel like you own a digital copy in the same way as a physical copy. Feels like you're more free to do what you want with a physical copy. And it feels like it should be less expensive to distribute digital versions, not as many middle hands and no physical disc & box.

    Yea it think the same way. Plus with a physical copy its yours to do with what you want:sell it, give it to a friend, break it in a rage quit, whatever you like. Also, I know this wouldn't happen but with a digital I feel like the game could be lost easier because I can't get my kungfu grip on it. Ill probably get use to digital tho with all the perks the ps4 has for it.

    If you preorder it, you have a disk in which you can just shove it into your PS3 and play it almost instantly.
    You were able to play last of us, with only part of the game downloaded. I imagine it will be like that with next gen also.

    And wouldn't it be nice if you can play other games while downloading? How annoying was it to be downloading something and not be able to do anything else?

    I have made some pre-orders now, too.

    Reasons are basically the bonus extras in the game and that I too like to have a physical copy in my hands and in my closet. Also, my internet connection isn't the fastest.
