    What is your preference when buying video games? Using console's games store (like the eShop) or buying physical games? I personally prefer buying games physically because you can sell them or trade them when you've completely finished with them (even if you don't get as much back). I don't know about other consoles but the eShop kinda seems like a rip off on Nintendo Switch. £45 for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe when my local GAME, CEX & Grainger Games sell it for £30 to £35 and that's a standard price (not an offer price). With the eShop the one game I purchased took 2 & a half hours to download, physical copies take me about 30 minutes to download if that.

    --I would include a poll but on the app I can't see that option--

    I buy physical copies whenever I can - they're just more fun to keep than digital downloads.

    I used to buy physical copies, but now I don't go outside so meh I can't be bothered to buy any. I could order it off of Amazon but no prime is basically hell for me

    Physical, but sometimes the noise from my disc drive can make me wish my entire library was digital.

    I usually go physical. On PSN, they can have some really good deals so I do buy digitally sometimes.

    Digital - it makes re-installing everything so much easier if I change PCs. Besides, I have no shelf space left for the cases due to my main hobby of anime, manga and related merchandise. :p:
