Man, life must suck for anyone trying to go all digital. Luckily I prefer physical media so there are plenty of deals to be had but eshop deals are rare and not great. I still don't get why games distributed digitally aren't already cheaper since they don't have to be put on a card, packed in a clamshell case, sent to a retail shop who will also take their cut... anyway, I digress.

TU anyway, I'm sure some folks will be happy to see anything on sale in the eshop!

Right most of these have been considerably cheaper physically. That said I buy the games I want to play frequently (Splatoon, Minecraft, etc) digitally while I leave most of these to cartridge (Zelda, Warriors, Mario Kart, Mario Rabbids). Plus we have a few Switches at home so cartridge sharing is nice. That said if Mario Kart or Warriors had ever gone on a good digital sale I would have bought them for the convenience of not swapping carts.

Definitely get that, convenience is about the only selling point for digital at the moment. I could see wanting to have the favorites with you at all times without having to carry a bunch of game cards and swap them out.

Plus I don't know about you but I always worry about breaking the card slot cover. I'm sure it's fine but it feels flimsy.

Digital is awesome when you have small children. My 6 year old cant misplace digital games.

Yeah the card slot cover is a little flimsy, but when at home I rarely latch it when docked. It does become a little concerning for me when you insert a game cartridge normally and it can't be read without reinserting it possibly a few times. Still I believe the Switch in general is very durable and I have seen similar issues with my 3DS XL for years now without it ever becoming a real problem.

All digital would be fine at some point. It works well on PC with Steam where it was once thought that boxed CD and DVD would always be the preferred media for buying games. Even Xbox and Microsoft to an extent have made digital game purchases viable with sales geared toward players who are paying for Xbox Live or PS Plus. I think Nintendo is on the right track and it will be interesting to see how they pull this off when their digital service arrives in September. Personally I'm excited for it with cloud saves, included NES titles, and digital sales to come with better offers for paying members. It will be interesting to see how it works. We have three Switches at home so the family plan for $34.99 will be what we buy, but I have a friend who may buy in with us if it truly offers benefits for up to 8 consoles.

Digital is about all I buy now. Kiddos can't scratch them, less to haul around when mobile, can't get lost. Only downside is you can't resell, but I only buy games we're sure to replay in perpetuity.

It's because it alters the concept of "supply" in supply and demand. A physical product with a quantity will fluctuate based on demand. If it's not selling and a store has hundreds of an item, they'll probably lower the price. Digital items have no quantity. There is no incentive to lower the price, they don't need to clear space or "move" some number of them.

There will always be a debate between physical vs digital. I for one prefer physical. One, it looks nice in my game room. But most importantly is sharing it between family and friends. Unless Nintendo finds a way to share and control digital amongst family accounts, I'll stick to physical.

It'd better be somebody your REEEALLY trust. If the individual you speak of ever gets tempted to do like the others and go online with maxed-out hacks in Splatoon 2 (and Pokémon/Smash Bros, etc), that could jeopardize, or atleast, ding every console on the account. I see a number of folks, around the net, ready to share it with strangers for $5, lmao. N has a lot to patch up before the big games come out but they're to busy playing cover-up. Maybe they're in bed with Xbox (allowing Switches to sign into Xbox live for achievements in Minecraft, etc) to figure out online.

That might've made sense if it was anyone other than Nintendo.



Bit off topic...Speaking of discounts, if any of you have PS+, the internet seems to like this for $2 ($6 without): https://store.playstation.com/en-...DERSDENA01

Same. Not just because I can trade them in, but because digital is NEVER owned. Owning a digital game/movie/whatever on somebody else's server is a myth. They decide to close those things down, that's it. Better not ever drop (get wet, etc) that console.

No, my friend I trust and he barely plays Switch games online unless we play together. He has been my best friend for nearly 20 years, so I think I know him.

Bottom line is whether you buy a physical or digital copy of the game, the license to play games nowadays is NOT permanent. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are making it happening
Same thing with a physical copy that you can't just own the license to play forever because nowadays games requires software update for the console to make it playable. Otherwise, it useless (unless you denied update on the Switch and decided online play everyday now)

You're right. Games like LA Noir and NBA 2K for the Switch is meaningless going physical. Because YOU STILL HAVE TO DOWNLOAD HALF OF THE GAME. But many games are released 95-100% complete. Those I'd go with physical because you can sell it 15 years from now and it'll still play like day 1 without a need to download the complete game.

I'm not an online gamer. I know N's good for their 'stability' (cat & mouse) updates, but I deny those. Also, a Switch game can be updated by another Switch without updating firmware.

But, yeah, I like to OWN my games so digital only is a no, for me. Too many like depending on robots.

Only way I'll go digital is if it's $15 or under and they 'claim' it won't get a physical copy (though, Maury's detector determined that's, usually, a lie). ***By the way, Nintendo will do a 1-time refund.

Speaking of downloading half the game, I don't think I've seen why Wolfenstein requires a download when it isn't multiplayer like DOOM.
