You guys in the US have most stuffs cheaper.

We sometimes pay double the price for the same thing.

Even without counting including the tax, it is still cheaper in the US.

I always prefer physical copies.
Digital, of course, is easier to store. But if I had digital copies of everything, I wouldn't have space on my consoles for anything anymore.
Besides with a physical I feel more like I really own it; and it's much easier to transport and use on other consoles without having to download constantly (and even that's limited to "2 active PS3 consoles" or whatever anyway.
I only ever get digital things as a last resort when it comes to games (like when there's no other option because they're digital only).

However when it comes to anime; there's so much of it that I want to watch (or have already) that I prefer to download those. Then, without fail, if I like the show as soon as it's available I will buy it on DVD/B-RAY.

So, TL;DR
Games = Physical
Anime = Digital

Disc because of the 'internet speed and download limitations' is still my problems.
But if the price is cheaper in digital, I just go with that.

Default Re: Download vs Discs

I prefer to have disk over digital because with a disk a lot of the time i don't have to rely on a server for my purchase to carry on working, as long as i have the disk any internet or future server issues wont be a problem.

i've always been a stickler for having physical media of any kind.

Games, Anime, etc.. theres something about pulling it off a shelf to watch or play

while i do have some digital media thanks to steam and their lovely sales, i typically only buy things my friends have and that we can all play or something thats digital only
