The reason digital is more expensive is because MS and Sony don't want to compete with box stores. They need them to sell the hardware. The people buying the physical disc are the reason digital cost more. They think they're saving a dollar or two when they're costing gamer billions. They're nothing but underpaid workers for Gamestop and BB. Rant over. Get rid of physical so we can have steam like prices. It's coming whether people like it or not. The faster the more we all save.

Boxes also take inventory space so retailers are like to lower prices to push them out to bring in newn inventory. Digital takes up no space.

The game has a completely different feel. The combat plays like Dark Souls mechanically, and the game overall feels like a true RPG

Plus the Season Pass content sounds really cool. If the Anubis battle event was any indicator, the myths expansion looks like it'll be great!

The melee combat feels a bit like a Souls game but there's no stamina meter so you can mash away while occasionally changing between light, heavy and charged strikes depending on if the enemy has a shield or not and how big it is. Combat is better than the previous games for sure though. I enjoyed my time with Origins and the environments look spectacular but it is a "checklist" kind of game with little to be gained from exploration away from marked places on the map.

Exploration is awesome and I don't have to roam around lost like in Zelda BOTW. I like the guided exploration.

Think we will get a 10% off or 20% code for black friday week like we did last year?

A 20% off code went out last week. I wonder if that means we won't get a code like last yr

Not sure if it would affect the likelihood, but the 20% off codes for the "Day One Digital" promotion go out Tuesday.

About what I expected for digital copy prices. Just going to use amazon to get the physical games cheaper on black friday. what i really want though is a new 4k hdr tv. I looked into it and the tcl p607 seems to be the best budget tv. It doesn't look like it is going to go on sale though.

Anyone bite on The Mummy Demastered yet? Saw some good reviews for it, but would prefer an opinion from someone on here who would've played it. Price is a little high for me, as well - might hold off until $10 or less. Thoughts?

To each his own but I had way more fun exploring in BoTW or even a game like Elex because I never knew what I might find around the next corner. Games like AC: Origins are basically running from point A to point B checking things off the list with very few surprises to me. I can get some enjoyment out of "checklist" games but they won't be at the top of my GOTY list.

I'm glad they make games we can both enjoy. I've realized that with the limited time I have for gaming a guided experience is best for me. Glad you enjoyed BoTW. I tried and couldn't. I'm determined to force myself to finish it some day though.

He's sort of right about the first sentence.   Sony and MS need big box stores to stock consoles, but for big box stores, if they stock consoles they also need to stock games.  the end result is a lot of real estate, and so there is a sort of unspoken pressure on Sony/MS to not undercut physical, since doing so would mean big box stores wouldn't sell as many games, which in turn means they'd offer less real estate, which in turn means they might not be as apt to stock consoles.   It makes sense for Sony/MS to want large console sections full of games in every big box store to make their ecosystem look vibrant, and the only way to ensure that is to not undercut physical the way they could.

 

It's a complex issue.  I have no idea what the rest of his rant was about, though.

I still don't expect digital to take over until internet gets better anyway. Data caps are an issue for a lot of people but for some of us living in rural areas it's more about raw speed. Like man we pay $60 a month for a 5 mbps download speed and that is a recent thing, was 1.5 mbps at that price until about a year ago. 1.5 is borderline unusable for modern games and it was a absolutely brutal for even the PS3/360 era. 5 is tolerable but it's still like an all day down for a 50 gig game, easier to just buy a disc.

Remember when this generation was coming around and the publishers kept pushing it with the promise that it would be cheaper because of how darn expensive it is to make those discs? Really showed us with digital being almost universally higher and not following the steady drop of physical because they realized we're all lazy slobs who will buy stuff in the middle of the night without having to be competitive with themselves.

Yeah made worse by sony's download speed being slower than what your internet even offers.

Some digital games drop quicker than physical titles but its just as ymmv as physical is on what goes on sale and what doesn't.  but yeah they certainly have less reason to not have lowered prices even gradually on games they sell at 40-60$

 

south park stick of truth tales of symphonia ps3 and dungeon travelers 2 were all super cheap digitally at 2$ 4$ and 8$ if I recall correctly.

ha!  What's the average internet download speed anyway?  

I just ran a checker and mine is apparently only 38 mbps.  Though that was via my laptop.  I imagine its faster wired connection wise.  Which is interesting since it is supposed to be 100 since that's what the thingy we are paying for is supposed to be.

Where do you people live with these horrible internet plans? Is it the Midwest? I'm guessing it's because there's a lot of competition in NY so therefore I don't deal with this. I hope that it improves for you soon

I'd rather them come with even smaller hard drives and let us save the money and use them on the externals we are all racking up and using anyway

 

the size of the games and us being hoarders leads straight to big externals anyway, I don't even keep games on internals anymore as it should make it easier if I ever upgrade or need to replace a system
