I mostly prefer disc, because I can sell them when they get old or lend them to friends. Sometimes I do buy digital if there is a sale I can't miss.
Don't Blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't Blink. Good Luck.

I prefer the convenience of digital but I still buy mostly discs because to me the disc holds more value (trade/borrow/sell).

Digital, I can buy them w/ USD and don't have to pay shipping them to europe nor toll and taxes as there are none on imported software w/o physical media.

Brings down full retail launch titles from €60 to 69€ to about 48€

i would say depends on the game.....for games that i know will come out with a new series often i buy disc like COD a new one every single year. But for new games or games that don't come out as often i will buy digital like i will be buying digital like bethesda games. I will buy all bethesda game digital because not only do they hardly come out haha but their always good to play i still find myself going back to fallout 3 from time to time haha and we're in next gen

Always disc, unless the game is only available via digital download.

I'd like to go digital for the convenience but I don't trust it. I've lost too much digital media in the past for dumb reasons. The only digital titles I'll buy are the ones only available digitally or if there's super good sales. Bought a ton of full sized titles lately on xbl because of good sales.

I started out with the One using physical copies, but I recently decided to change to digital. I buy most of my games on release day so the price difference is usually non existent at the time.

If the games actually played off the discs I would probably continue buying physical but that advantage seems to have been lost, and thus digital has the advantage in my opinion. If I have to install the whole game to my HDD anyways, I would at least like to be able to swap between games without having to change discs.

I can respect that others prefer physical and I understand that it holds more actual value since you can trade in or resell, but to me the physical advantage is all but gone. I typically don't sell my games anyways.
