But with a physical you dont have to wait for the updates/patches to copy.



Clearly I'm the only one who cant deal with it tho.

I pretty much only play online...without that patch....I couldn't day 1

there are no physicals

unless you buy a switch
The physical disc is not a physical game?

Well I want whatever you want to call the version that involves 0 copying.

That is why I buy physical only, base game and all. At least the actual game whether it is buggy or not at least it is there.
I bought a physical game two years ago and the update was like 1 hour 45 minutes between the system update and the game updates. I don’t really use my Xbox one, but we had guests for the holidays who wanted to play the new Call of Duty. By the time that sh*t was ready nobody wanted to play anymore.

if you have a physical version of a game

go and look for the digital version

and if it’s super cheap buy it and try to download it

it won’t download cause it is already downloaded

the physical is just a key to play the digital (license)

again, the switch is the only console with games on physicals

but even those have updates

Oh yea most def. I only realized that once I saw how sh*t the PS4 WiFi is. Itís wired by Ethernet and sh*t does dl relatively quick and I get smoother multiplayer every time. Thing is most people swear by wireless but it isnít always good.
Bro itís crazy how much better wired is. Like I legit called and haggled my way in to a really nice package like, up to 120 mbps. Wireless on PS4 I was still maxing out at maybe 55mbps in the best day. I went wired and I hit like 90 mbps immediately. Iím never going back, running the cable is no problem compared to how nice my connection is.

WiFi still needs work. If you got an old or big house u need mesh routers and sh*t. A house thatís wired up will always be better than WiFi. Wireless is just for convience.

Ok that's fine its not a physical copy, but it allows me to avoid the copy after the update, which is my issue with digital. I could care less what we call it.

I still buy physical based on the experience of opening and smelling the package... No homo... Brings back nostalgic memories... The thing I like about digital tho, is that you don't have to worry about switching out the discs

Might get slapped for this but....wired is the way to go.

Download 30gb files in like 20mins. I think the newest Wolfenstein took like half an hour off PSNow
Yeah an Ethernet connection will improve your download speeds dramatically

No tax on digital copies
Digital is available to dl before day 1 launch
No visit to store and no line. Never out of stock
PS/xbox/pc store sales beat store sales


Most games I dl overnight and i kno my games update schedules (new season, patches etc) so i go play other games/console

you bring up very valid points but i still prefer physical copies of games lol

You still have to install the game from the disc to the hard drive and download necessary updates regardless. Games don't play off the disc anymore

My Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle: Launch Edition will be here Tuesday. Can't wait to stare at the steelbook, sniff it and then put it on shelf along side many of my other Steelbooks. Insert the disc and boot up Bayonetta . Been slacking lately but it's back to work next week.

I dont care what you folks want to call the disc, I really dont, all I know is WITH the disc I can do the download and then play, WITHOUT the disc you do the download and THEN you have to copy the download.

I dont give 2 sh*ts what yall want to call the disc, I'm gonna call it a physical, and the point is the copying not what its called.

as long as there are physical games.....i will always buy physical over digital.

when im completely done with games, i sell them. With digital i cant do that.

thats the deciding factor for me.

Remember being excited reading the instruction manual? It was like a mini magazine in itself

I remember not only did the game booklet have to be dope, especially Rockstar games, but also for 1st & 2nd God of War Games I had to get that Prima guide so a n*gga could get the upgrades fast as possible.




Also the thing I hate the most besides updates would be, with how the Rockstar Launcher works... The company is so scared for people to play the games who didn't buy them, the service barely let's me play the game. I have to be connected to internet or Rockstar tries to make believe its my fault b/c I didn't check the boxes but I do and it says I'm not authorized to play the game when my connection goes out sometimes.

And last, it seems the only update that will fix Red Dead Redemption is updating (upgrading) my gpu to a 20xx series which is BS b/c my 1070ti handles everything else just fine.
