I know Xbox hasn't shown one yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if they announce a digital only Series X at some point since Sony did it with the PS5. Do you plan to buy a console with a disc drive, or will you be getting the digital only version?

It would take a lot to make me get a digital only PS5, so for now I'm sticking with the physical disc version. A lot of Collector's Editions tend to be physical games when it comes to having the good shit in them, and I wouldn't want to buy one of those and then need to buy the game digitally because I lack a disc drive.

Physical 100%. I will *never* be digital-only as long as a physical option exists. I enjoy actually owning my games and not being at the mercy of a company deciding on whether or not to keep their servers running.

Sure, I'll buy digital games if there is no other option, but given the choice, 110% physical every. single. time.

Hopefully with companies like Limited Run Games chugging along, the day we see companies completely ditch physical media is still going to be a long ways off.

Physical, even if getting new physical titles has been harder to do for me during the coronavirus pandemic since I like buying my games from local stores such as Best Buy, & Walmart. But both had online ordering only for a long time & I had to go for digital titles I would have rather bought physically. Even getting a copy of Animal Crossing for my nephew was a pain in the a**, so he ended up with one of our copies & we ended up buying a digital version for ourselves.

Physical easily. It may be a bit bigger and more pricey than digital, but going digital only is not something I'd want to do. Looking at my collection without the need of a screen and to have the disc/box in my hands is just that much more appealing than receiving nothing but a file on a computer/console.

The only advantage I think digital has is just the speed of switching games since you don't have to swap discs out, but if I were to go digital for that reason I'd still get the physical disc console so that way I can get physical copies of games that might be dirt cheap or come in CE's and be able to use them.

I tend to prefer getting anything physical so if I do end up getting another console I will probably get the physical version.

The only real downside is not many games are actually on the disc fully. Eh

True, but at least you would have some form of the game in the event its digital content was entirely removed.
