Do you think digital copies will ever become cheaper than physical copies in our lifetime? I would rather do Digital if it was 20-50% off the physical copy. But right now Wombat is correct (who would have thunk?).
Physical = extra junk and you have a resell value
Digital = easy to get/download
The majority of people will look at that resell value and the extras and think why should they download? I bought the Beta of Destiny because the extras weren't much to brag about and the digital cost a smidgen less. I'm thinking that the resell value of this game by the time that I want to resell (if it's as good as I suspect) will be next to nothing. But all the other games I'm getting this year are physical copies.
Since they don't seem interested in pushing the digital or at least making it an appealing buy, do you think that Publishers really don't want to go Digital? Are they afraid of what it could do to the stores? Or is it pressure from Gamestop and Best Buy? I don't think it's the latter because there is no reason Gamestop couldn't sell digital codes, even digital codes with exclusive content. That would allow them to stock more games even.
What do you think?
