I live in Australia, and if I buy the digital version of PS5 I will be spending a lot more money than I have to on games. Brand new games on Australian PSN are $99.95 meanwhile local retailers sell physical copies for $69-79. It's a no-brainer for me so I'm getting the physical version. Plus I've always been a physical collector of games. I might buy a couple of digital games here and there when they're on sale in PSN but I prefer seeing how much my collection has grown over the years.

I'll stay with disc too. I rent a lot of my games from a UK service called Boomerang. Without that I would be paying a lot more money, and possibly, on games I don't end up liking.

 

I think it will be a sad day when discs will no longer be sold.

Disc version for sure. 
 

Here in Australia the majority of new release titles are $99.95 on the PSN store. Retail they’re $69-$79. Even if the digital console is cheaper, that cost will absolutely be offset by just buying a couple of games, and will work out to be cheaper over the life of the console. 
 

Plus our internet here is shit. The latest 32gb Modern Warfare patch took 7 hours to download last night..

For me personally I'm done with physical. Yes its nice to have physical but it's so much more convenient to sit down and choose from a digital library. If you wanting physical because you can get it cheaper then just wait for a digital sale. Besides the digital console will be cheaper.

100% disc. I still play PS3 games on the regular and very rarely pay the prices they have on PSN, with very very few sales at this point, when I can get the disc version cheaper. Disc is better long term, digital is short term.

Most definitely getting it with disk, just because I like having physical copies of games even though most of my games are digital I much prefer physical :)

Disc version. Retail games are cheaper most of the time and I want my PS4 collection BC with it

With. Physical games are often cheaper if you're prepared to wait a few months after launch to play them.

Couldn't imagine going all-digital myself ever, could well be the time I stop buying new games altogether if that becomes the norm, I still collect box sets for TV shows I love. But that's my privilege to be able to do so, it's great that there is an option for folks who can't or just don't want to keep physical copies.

With, obviously. Really don’t understand why someone would want to waste so much money on overpriced digital software that can neither be purchased second hand nor traded or sold. Makes zero sense to me. Doesn’t matter that I could afford to, it’s just a waste.

Disc. Such an easy decision.

 

Game collection, blu rays, dvds n cds (remember them!)

 

Plus it keeps the game shops open, 2nd hand markets alive etc. Trading with others.

Sure some gamestores are horrible. But not all. 

 

Disc all day.

Digital sales are still far more expensive when you consider the ability to rent or buy second hand then get most of that money back through trade or resale. Far, far cheaper to go physical, and easier for friends and family to borrow too.

Disc version is the only way for me seeing as digital normally costs a good £20 more than a disc.

The internet is also slow in Australia so it will take longer to download. Physical games installing is way quicker than digital games downloading.

Like many I prefer the actual physical copies that I can hold in my hand and put on a shelf. I'll be getting the PS5 with disc. Which I have a feeling will be harder to find unfortunately.
