Physical or Digital? An Unscientific Poll

«13
TrickTrick Posts: 1,538 Member
Just curious... I see a lot of guessing in another thread about how many people bought physical copies of the game compared to digital, so I thought I'd take a sampling of forum users.

Which way did you go? Disks or downloads?
[Clarification: If you bought a physical copy and got a box, you're "Physical," even if you installed by downloading. If you didn't get a box or disk, you're "Digital").

In my case, digital. Two of 'em, but I'll only count myself as one. :)
If you bought more than one, let me know how many of each.

Running Results (up to @gingsnap, Page 4):

Digital: 36 ... 60.0%
Physical: 24 ... 40.0%

    Digital, I think its a safe bet there are more digital sales than physical.

    Digital. I don't want to go to the store as A. I cannot drive. And B. I don't have car.

    With TS4, disk = download.

    🐸🐸🐸🐸. Maybe I should count my wife's second copy. That'd make it easier to deal with cases like this one. :)

    Which game exactly?
    I tend to toss some big sums on indie developers on Kickstarter and grab physical boxes, books, t-shirts, etc. >:)

    Sims 4? Digital, ofc.

    Digital. Did the physical buyers get an actual disk or did you need to access origin with your code anyway? That's been the case with a lot of games lately, so it seems pointless (to me) to have an empty box. Given my druthers, I'd rather have the entire disk in my possession.

    I'll have to ask my old man. I know he had to wait a while for something to download. Not sure if it was the game itself, or something else involving Origin.

    We got an actual disk but we had to download the game in order to install it. Sorry if someone already answered this.

    Thanks, @CowPlantForHire. You were my first notif. I'd give you a prize if I could shove it through my laptop. I thought that might be the case.

    Physical, obviously. My games are like my trophies. They look good in display. Also helps me reminisce about the fun things I did and experienced in the past.

    If I buy a physical copy from a store and then redeem the code into Origin, and download it that way, does that mean I'm digital? Because that's what I did. :grey_question:
