What's the best way to buy PS4 games? Digital key or disc in market?

14 posts in this topic

When given the choice, disk based games every time. The freedom to sell, buy, loan, swap and trade used games is one the biggest benefits to consoles.

I love digital personally because I am lazy as a fuck.  However Sony rarely gives you any benefits for buying it digitally.  So if we are talking brand new releases I would say Disc, however Sony has many sales through out the year on older games where digital is cheap as shit.

Depends on the mood. I lean towards digital if I know I am gonna love the game and want it day one. However that normally does not happen and I am left with rental then waits for sale haha.

Disk based every time, you can trade in and their the same price if not cheaper. I don't think there's any advantage is buying digitaly at all.

I only buy digitaly when the there is no disk based version.

Personally I only do digital when I know I'm gonna love the game and have no reason to return it or sale it. Plus, it's pretty nice to be able to pre-load games you're excited for, and then play them the second they release at 12 a.m. But if I'm not sure about a game, or I know I can be done with the game in under 30 days, I just buy a disk and then return it when I'm finished with it.

I'd say disk due to the fact you never know whether or not if a game is disappointed.

I love the feeling of going to a store and buying a fresh new game, taking it home, and plopping it into my system. That feeling cannot be recreated with a digital download, IMO

People said the same thing with developing camera film, or buying a music cd, but we have evolved and moved on from those primitive means.  Disc based gaming is next.

Personally, digitally. If something were to happen to your CD then you're pretty much screwed lol. Whereby with digital, it's always going to be there. Lessens your worry about games getting stolen.

I usually buy Digital from PSN now a days since they don't charge the 13% HST, just like Steam. However, for collection purposes, I get some games physically. Even more so if the Collector's / Special Editions are something I want.

I buy digitally. My roommate and I share games. My account is the primary on his PS4 and his is the primary on mine. Saves us from buying multiple copies.

Love disc, less issues when playing. I know that a lot of my mates who bought digital copies of Destiny, could not play for a few days, due to some issues with the new dlc and same goes for Shadow of Mordor.

Besides, I lend my games out to friends who might wanna buy them or just play.
