Physical:
 
Pro: You can always play the game. Provided your system works and you take care of the disc, you will still be able play it whether it's next week, a year from now, or 20 years from now.  Being online is not a requirement to install the game (so if you lose the internet or we lose net neutrality, no worries.)  If you have little space on your hard drive and need to do a lot of installing/uninstalling, it's faster to install large games from disc than download ~60gb of data from online.
 
Con: Discs can be damaged, lost or physically stolen.
 
Digital:
 
Pro: No need to get up and swap discs provided the games you want to play are installed.

Cons: You don't own the games, you only license them. Sony has the authority to remove them from your account if the mood takes them. No guarantee they will keep games available forever; for example, they may stop allowing you to download your PS3 purchases in 5, 10, whatever years because they don't think anyone plays PS3 anymore. Need to continually install/delete games because you'll run out of space fast, can't rollback to the first version of a game if a later patch nerfs the game.

Debating going completely digital

Can anyone tell me the pros/cons?  Also I don't sell games if at all, so I don't have to worry about that.  Trying to see if it is finally time to ditch physical media and make my life less cluttered and easier lol.

I'm doing it. If I see a significant sale on a game I own physically I'll pick it up digitally. Then I'll pull it from my shelf and set it aside for when Gamestop trade values are up/there's a significant promo boost. Been using that trade credit to put towards money for my PSN wallet. It's a cycle, and I'd like to say that I've actually made a bit doing it too (being a CAG and all).

You forgot that friends can borrow your game and you can sell or trade it if you need money or don't want the game anymore. Usually cheaper too. Physical will always be better.

Damnit, when did this happen? I just bought some credit last month, and was going to buy some credit to get God of War with the 20% off coupon. Ugh.

I last purchased a digital PSN gift card from Amazon on April 30th.  Came back later that day to buy another and found they were out of stock.   Almost a month later still waiting for $10 or $20 to be restocked.

I am debating about the street fighter v arcade ultimate edition for $39.19 after the 20% off since season 3 pass is $29.99 by itself

I like digital for games that I want to pick up and play for short bursts.

 

Grand Theft Auto IV recently had a ton of licensed tracks removed from the main game and DLC episodes.  If you download the digital versions you can't recover those tracks.  So big pro for the physical version in this case.

Is there a way to use the 10 digit discount code (20% off) when preordering a game? 

 

Nevermind, Looks like they don't work on the preorders.

Speaking for yourself, I suppose. Guess I've outgrown this "GOTTA GET NOW WHILE IT'S FRESH" mentality. The point still stands: EA is not invoking good faith towards its most valuable consumers. So as a result, now I'm increasingly becoming one of their invaluable customers. Not making an empirical statement, simply sharing how it affects me and its result.

You do not know what this word means unless you're saying you buy all of their games at launch at full price along with all of the DLC at full price.

They were. Issue with the keys and only Steam ones were ready. They are giving them out via fangamer site. If you have only console, you get a temp steam key.

Can anyone familiar with The Elder Scrolls Online tell me if this:

 

The Elder Scrolls® Online: Morrowind

 

Includes the base game and all addons except Summerset?  Or is it just the base game and Morrowind but none of the other addons?

This is a great idea, one that absolutely should happen. It's chances of actually happening though approach 0%.

they were cool though about not offering external by making sure a large majority of the games are ridiculous in size when compared to other systems of the same generation

 

so that was nice of them

I'm not that disappointed with the delay. I could play it on Steam but I'm getting Detroit tomorrow and that should keep me busy for at least a week. The Steam codes for Curse of the Moon expire on June 8th so I'm assuming that's the longest it will take to get the PS4 keys out to backers.

Or you could just delete stuff you're done with or not going to play. Problem solved.

it includes ESO base game and Morrowind expansion. If you want all the addons, then you should go for ESO Gold edition. I'm not sure if they have updated that to include Morrowind tho

Any active PSN cards/credit discounts at the moment?  Looking for a discount to combine with yesterday's 20% off coupon.
 
Even if it's only 5% or 10% off face value I'd be interested...

GMG currently has 8% off Playstation stuff with the promo code: PS8
https://www.greenman...m/consoles/ps4/
 
edit: It says on titles, but I remember an earlier post saying it works on other PS things.

8% off Playstation items at Green Man Gaming with the voucher code PS8. Can be used on games, credit and PS+ memberships.

I really, really want God of War, but it goes against my CAG nature to buy it at full price even with a 20% off discount, but I highly doubt it will go on sale any time soon. So the (probably stupid) question I'm posing to my CAG fam is this: worth it?

First game I've bought at launch (w/ GCU) this console generation. Absolutely worth it in my opinion, the game is incredible. Every little detail is polished beyond belief.

Yeah you have to click on some 'survey' page on your thing. Its not where I expected it to be, but this is the first game I've ever backed so I don't have experience with this.
