All I know is fu*k digital games, not sure if it's an xbox thing or just PS4 but man apex (or any game) will have a download that takes 2 minutes and then copies for 30, the fu*k kinda sh*t is that, but only with games I dont have a hard copy.

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.

The updates are mostly the online multiplayer features and adding their stupid microtransaction codes most of the time.

I do agree those updates ruin a lot of the experience especially when playing online with people.

That would be because its installing and or that initial download wasn't everything that was needed ...like a launcher then the remaining 10gb in a sep file...none the less physical games don't have as much value as they used to with regards to newer games so other than not being about to get the same discounts...sometimes...physical dead

What's the benefit of a digital game tho? Its same price as the hard copy, and I have to deal with the copying sh*t on digital and not hard copy. I get why their are dead but it's far more convenient outside of having to go to the store. If they make digital cheaper at launch I'd think about it, but man that copying sh*t goes slow as fu*k no matter how fast the internet.

Well I can get into a PC Master race thing here with regards to price and the fact that I was digital only in like 02...my new pc doesn't even have a CD drive /rant...but it's paying for convenience where as you can preload nowadays....with a disk copy some games don't even have the game on the disk as is and both versions are subject to day 1 patches and sh*t what's the last game you played like at midnight ...only real discount that exists is gcu from Best buy and you can't get it anymore as they ended it last year for new signups but that was 20% off new

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

See so in reality there is no benefit getting a digital game on a console besides convenience, and in all honesty I like picking the gaming nerds minds at game stop.

Get a solid game share partner and you'll never look at physical again.

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.

Lol man just need them to speed up the copying, that's my ONLY issue. If that's fixed, next gen, I'll probably go full digital. Got a buddy who tells me I'm not with the times all the time, hes right lmao.

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.
