Do you still physically buy games?

Well?


It struck me this morning that The Last Of Us was the last game I bought on disc format and that was well over 15 months ago. All my recent purchases I've bought through PS Store or on Steam. It's becoming handy due to the amount of space a decent game library can take up. My only worry is when Sony inevitably shuts down the PS3 services.

On PC, I haven't bought a physical copy of a game since Far Cry 3, two years ago. My Steam list has over 300 games, but I don't think I've bought even 20 of those in the last six months.
On consoles, however, I still buy pretty much all games on discs. The only downloadable games I have on any of my consoles are games that I can't get otherwise (like the Abe's Oddysee remake), or that I got for free through Playstation Plus.
That said, I rarely buy any game full-price, and got my entire PS4 library so far second-hand.

I recently bought an XbOne and it came with two games so I got those on disc, but before that the last disc I had bought was GTA V

I'm not even getting destiny on disc

PC: never, last physical copy was World Of Warcraft: Mists Of Pandaria, next expansion I bought digitally

Console: always a physical copy.

Last physical copy of a pc game was gta eflc I think. Been steam ever since. Still buy physical copies for console, but the last game I got on console was gta v on release day

Digital all the way, imo

My only worry about digital on console would be when the service shuts down. With Steam you'd never have to worry.

Haven't bought a game, physical or digital in a while. GTA V was the last game i've bought but before that all my purchases were physical outside of the occasional live arcade game. In the future i can see myself going the digital route though to get games on release day instead of waiting for them via mail and i think i already have enough videogame cases lying around.

If you haven't bought a game in a while, second hand games are the way to go. Got Dark Souls for a tenner last week, and that game is hours upon hours of replayabilty.

I can't even remember the last PC game I got a physical copy of. Might have been WoW back in 2004. All the expansions I've gotten digitally. Everything else has come off Steam.

I'll get the physical copy for consoles. Unless it's an indie game. Which is usually digital only anyway.

Not on PC unless it's something like Skyrim that comes with a nice map.

50/50 or so on console. Just depends on the game.
