    I wish you wouldn't. Digital really is the next step forward and you might as well start now (I know I will).

    There are no advantages of Digital aside from the fact of easier access and less boxes. Let us have that Sony 2K bug again where if you had a fat PS3, you couldn't play anything you owned that was DL'd because you weren't connected for an authentication check. Imagine you have all those sweet digital games you can't use for 24hrs because of someone else $#@!-up. Then server over-load for digital launches. No sir, that's noise you digital guys can keep.

    HELP! Going Digital or Disc For This Gen?

    Digital on some titles, will come in handy to have a choice of games off the HDD rather than being tied to whatever disc is in for Remote play.

    I accidentally voted for disc based but I meant to go with digital. That is the future.

    A mix between both can keep a very good balance.

    My general rule of thumb is Indie-based and PS+ deals are downloaded, but it's disc-based for the vast majority of titles.

    I voted for physical and as long as publishers are in the mix, I'll stick to that. However, if dev studios, indie or major, can develop games that they want to without the pub pulling strings and making deals that the dev have to abide to.....yeah, I'd be all in favor of going digital 100%. That isn't going to happen this gen, tho.

    sticking with my physical copies except for what comes free from Playstation Plus. Im definately considering getting that 64gb card for my vita and going all digital with that though. Swapping discs just isnt that annoying to me.

    Continuing off my first post: I like the idea of digital, but the two main things that steer me away from digital are the lack of price cuts + inability to sell/trade.

    Often times the games I want are almost double the price when you download. I'd much rather get a disc based game on Amazon that's about $11.01 than download it for 34.99.

    I don't sell my games, but instead trade them with others to get different games. I'll end up with a brand new game just by trading games I don't want anymore with others. Can't do that with digital. Plus, having a game "forever" as someone said, is not necessarily a plus.

    I feel that a mixture is most likely the best fit for me.

    Definitely disk based unless it is free. Why? Because after awhile they stop allowing you to download old games off the sever. Anyone try to re download Infamous on the PSN lately? When I pay money I want that game. I seldom trade my games but the ones I own I do play. Hell I am playing assassins creed 2 right now and in years to come I like the ability to be able to play that again. Digital copy being the future is bull$#@!. All digital copy is is the game publishers trying to stop game trading. I love that they can make a profit but if I want to loan my son a copy of Metal Gear Solid then dammit I should be able to where as with digital copy he would have to buy it.

    Depends on the price. If they stick to their current price model then I won't even touch their digital distribution however if they can do it well then yes I will.

    I don't care about losing out on resale value, i've been fully DD on PC for a while now and even before then I never traded my games in. It's just the poor pricing that has prevented me from doing the same on console.

    And that is my major drawback from wanting to go all digital, there is no price break on the games! If they were $40 instead of $60 then they might have something there, but after seeing everyone's responses so far and hearing about the Target B2G1 ad leak it looks like I will be doing disc based again this gen (expect for indie games, etc.).

    It depends mainly on your Internet speed/Bandwidth - Digital games prices.

    This ^^

    My broadband tops out at a blazing fast 2.3 meg, it would take me days to download a full digital copy of a game.. That's providing the power don't go off for a few seconds as its apt to do every now and again and leave me with a corrupted data message when I try to install whatever I've downloaded..

    I currently have a 60Mbps connection (which I might upgrade here in the near future to 75Mbps), which will still take me a while to download, but with that connection it is within reason. I just worry about the fact that I won't have a physical copy of the game in hand, and it seems like the PSN titles are always full price where disc based there are always deals floating around the internet.

    Staying disc based for now. My t'internet speed is 150mb but what i actually get is around 100 - 110mb, but with some all digital games bein (and goin to be) massive, its just easier to pick up a disc copy.

    That is why I am busting out my 14.4 baud modem! What is crazy sad is Google Fiber is still almost 17x faster than what I have, I am hell-a-jealous of anyone that has that and I can't wait until Verizon FiOS offers something similar (at the price)!
