Welcome to the Switch owner survey Day 3!

Each day I will ask a poll question related to Switch ownership to try and get a view of Switch owners.

Today's Q is "How do you buy games for Switch?". NOTE: that I am referring to retail games not download only and not limited run.

I am physical just about exclusively. Partly because I don't fully trust Nintendo after getting burned with the Wii. There is the odd game that

Current results (I will leave the other topics open and update them each day along with the new survey until they get locked)

- Day 1: How do you primarily play your Switch? (Handheld: 44.12%, Docked: 40.2%, Even split: 12.25%, Tabletop: 3.43%)
- Day 2: Where do you usually use your Switch? (Home: 87.78%, Even split 6.67%, On the go: 5.56%)

Digital for convenience but if I'm iffy on a game I'll go physical so I can sell it if I don't like it

70%~80% digital.

For some games it can be too expensive to buy physical(games are usually more expensive than their digital alternatives here), I didn't want to wait to get it physical(as is the case with Xenoblade 2 to me), or just straight up don't exist and need to import, so I just get it digitally.

Now if the price difference between physical and digital isn't much and physical is available, I go with physical.

Physical for the most part

Digital if it's the only option, if it's better fit for the game (IE games I'm going to be playing through the years in short bursts every now and then like Smash and Animal Crossing) or finally if I'm just feeling super lazy & inpatient and want to purchase& play something at that very moment.

If it's available physical, I'll take that option any day. A few games that were digital only, I've replaced with physical copies as they've become available.

100% digital

the only game I would consider getting physical is Labo and that's because I have to and yet I cant take that with me anywhere, so I don't see the point of getting that

I'll never buy anything digital with Nintendo, until they catch up with the rest of the world in that regard.
