Physical versus Digital Media
With our "New vs Used" discussion, that got me thinking about physical media versus digital media. Delay of Game started back about seven years ago and many of us have known each other for longer via the Xbox Canada board, and in that time we've seen technology and trends change a good bit.
Today, much is available digitally, and I'm curious if you've all switched to digital for most of your media needs, be it games, movies, comics, novels, etc. or do you still stick with physical copies?
For me, for movies I still prefer and buy physical copies (DVDs still), though I don't buy many these days; certainly significantly less than when I was in my 20's. Books and comics I buy physical still, but again buy much less than when I was younger. Music I also still buy CDs as opposed to digital. For movies and books, I prefer an actual physical copy while for music I don't have that preference, digital wouldn't bother me, but I mostly listen to my tunes in my car and being a 2004 vehicle, CDs are more practical. I can also rip them onto most digital devices today if needed.
Gaming is were I've pretty much switched to digital, and that's mainly because I've gone back to PC gaming and retail copies of PC games are harder to come across now and its not uncommon for it to be a box with a download token instead of an actual game!
How about you?
