Physical or Digital, what do you prefer?

Let's talk about anything about video games, no matter what platform it is. What is your favorite game? Who is your favorite character? What are the recently released games? What is DLC (downloadable content)? How do I beat this boss? How do I set up my team?

Physical or Digital, what do you prefer?

Digital as much as possible. I want all my games wherever I go and anytime.

Old School Physical

Bukod sa mabagal ang internet dito sa Pilipinas for digital download, iba pa rin ang feeling pagnakikita at nahahawakan yung game.

Ang medyo ayaw ko lang sa panahon ngayon eh may mga releases na walang option maliban sa digital. Naiintindihan ko na minsan kasi alangan yung company dahil mas mahal maglabas ng physical copy plus hindi sila sure kung bebenta yung game, pero still....it makes me wish na sana may physical copy pa din. :ashamed:

kung maliit yung game why not go digital? like 500MB to 1GB? mapagttyagaan ko pa yan.. Pero kung 14GB yung size, wag na..

For me sa ngayon, Physical ako. Gusto ko nakikita ko kung saan napunta yung perang pinaghirapan ko. May kinababagayan yan. Sa internet speed meron tayo sa dito i don't think Digital will work on all gamers. If our internet speed here is as fast at least like South Korea or Dubai why not.

Saka na ang Digital Age pag 75% of the world's internet speed is averaging 30Mbps and it's affordable to subscribe such internet speed. Yung tipong obsolete na yung 10Mpbs na speed. Ang tanong kelan darating yung panahon na yun? Baka kung kelan uugod-ugod na tayo at di makahawak man lang controller saka pa maging affordable ang 30Mpbs para sa isang residential broadband

Physical pa rin.. nakikita ko ang investment ko kahit categorically isa siyang liablity dahil luho naman talaga ang video games..

the line is blurred

if i download a game, burn it on a dvd, its a physical copy..... but still digitial, technically... but physical... something like that :lol:

if i buy a dvd game, copy an image to a hardisk.... its the same thing

i think the main concern here is "how you first acquired" the game.. but in today's standard, almost every game has "followup" patches / DLCs.. so no matter how you first aqcuired the game, it's obsolete after the next patch

Animal Crossing NL (digital) so far is working for me...isa kasi siya sa mga games na halos araw araw mo lalaruin even on short periods of time. Convenient siya na digital para at least may isang full game pa na parati nasa 3DS ko and I won't have to keep switching back and forth between the two of them. :agree:

Depende din ako sa title. Sa mga paborito physical, pero lately mas nagli lean in ako sa convenience ng digital copies. If only download times and storage weren't an issue baka I would go 100% digital except if hindi available yung game na gusto ko in digital format.

People back up in the cloud. Why anyone would back up in a physical disc (which is prone to rotting) is beyond me.

If you purchased a game on Steam, would you need to burn it onto a DVD? What for? Just download it again if you need it.

actually there's no need to be technical about it as everyone (er most) understands the choices, since it's elementary and only need a little common sense regardless if the question is technically incorrect.

If Nintendo continues to give out promotions like the SMT IV + FE = $30 free e-shop load, then nagiging mas viable na option na para sa akin ang digital. Hehe of course I'll probably still buy physical games lalo na yung mga CE at LE, pero having free money to spend on the E-shop at least promotes getting games digitally. :grin:

I'm not a fan of digital games, I'm more on physical, I already post here some of my reasons, pero kung masyadong malaki ang difference ng price kung mas mura ang digital kesa physical ( which is malabong mangyare ) and kung mag stop ang physical at gawing lahat digital then no choice,and kung yun ang isang way para hinde ma support ang x-play, then I will switch to digital hehe.

Physical because you own it unless a company implemented a stupid DRM. Going digital doesn't have enough benefits for me. I hate to download for long hours. I never wanted to worry about storage space. Now all that can be forgotten if the prices are cheap like Steam but they're not. The funny thing is we should expect lower prices since they no longer have to pay for shipping, warehouse storage, packaging etc. Even if we factor bandwidth expenses, prices should still be cheaper than the expenses I listed.

Hmmm? I guess they put a "premium" on these digital products.

As for me, I do prefer physical copies but I'm more open now on buying digital stuff. My unit is crammed with it now, actually.

Oo nga...the main draw for me for going digital is dapat mas mura sila. Music, books and even movies are cheaper when in digital format kaysa physical. Hindi ko alam kung bakit sa games hindi. :sweat:

Well, I still buy some digital games every now and then. Minsan kasi mas maganda to have them always in a system especially for handhelds para hindi papalit palit ng game. :agree:
