God, I remember seeing tons of those Sonic Manias, thinking "Ah that's cool..." then noticing it has a redeem code and immediately thought it was a terrible waste of money.

Scott might not see this. But the gamestop in the video is the same one that I've been going to since I was 4 years old. Shout out to the manager Justin over there he is a true goat.

I think the biggest L of the decade regarding this concept is Fatal Frame: Maiden in Blackwater for the WiiU. The download was 30 gigabytes. The WiiU's average memory was about 32 gigabytes.

The problem with these digital downloads, is eventually the platform shuts down the online store, and prevents you from opening your game

My favorite part about the Sonic Mania Collector's Edition was I got it at a midnight release. But I couldn't download it until the store updated the next day to allow me to download the game.

I bought the Wolfenstein Collectors Edition a year ago, and found out it didn't actually come with a disk, then I checked, and it didn't come with a fucking CODE EITHER. they just straight up sold the collectors edition without anything attached to it.

The Sly Collection on Vita only has 1 and 2, my copy was used and it didn't have the download code so I learned that I had to download the whole digital version of the game just to get 3... That was annoying

I'm probably most annoyed with the Spyro trilogy on Switch. Despite only the first game being on the cartridge, you still have to insert the cartridge to play the second and third games that you have to download. That is madness in a box.

"They save space" physical games on PS4, XBOX ONE, PS5 and XBOX SERIES X/S have their data ripped to the consoles hard drive

Everything will be digital only. Then, someone will come up with the idea of releasing a small booklet with a game and we will all pretend it's a new idea

I was so mad when I got bioshock trilogy on physical for switch. They literally put like half of each game on the cartridge and had to download the rest. Like, why the hassle? Doesn’t make it way harder on them than just putting three cartridges in there? Nintendo

On xbox, you can share downloaded games with one other person so i think that helps digital popularity. It eliminates the cost of access for these players and these players will then continue to purchase micro transactions thus creating revenue where previously cost of access put off potential purchases.

also a PC gamer, its something decently relevant as physical copies are pointless since nobody has a disc drive anymore, but not having a box is still lame, so some

"These things can be 100's of GB in size" holy c###. I get 35GB/ MONTH! They do remember some people live in rural areas and have bad internet right?

Fun fact: The reason the bigger Switch games are the digital ones is because Switch cartridges are really expensive, especially the bigger sizes.
Suplyndmnd Day ago
Fortnite stuff is done that way, Apex Legends too, because kids play them and parents, rightfully so, don't want to put their credit card information in for them. So they buy it/skins/etc for them to redeem a code. That way you can control what happens with your kids accounts and money without letting them have access to a credit card.

Yeah, and this kind of thing is an especially big problem right now, given that we're still in the midst of the Switch firmware update Version 12.0.3 fiasco.
Fragger Grenadier
I personally don't mind this too much. I tend to prefer digital games these days as a lot of games basically have 0 data on the disc and basically require the full download onto the console, but you still need to put the disc in, which is just dumb, the reason I liked physical was it took up less space on your consoles storage. At the same time, having the packaging is nice, because its cooler to have a box on your shelf than just an image on your console's home screen. This provides a decent balance of both. As someone who's also a PC gamer, its something decently relevant as physical copies are pointless since nobody has a disc drive anymore, but not having a box is still lame, so some companies allow you to buy a physical digital which allows you to be able to throw a box up on your shelf but still have your digital PC game. I definitely see why people would hate this though

Whenever I see these digital only physical releases, I have vietnam flashbacks of me trying to download Ōkami HD on PS3 with what was the worst internet on Earth. It took me nearly a week. And it was 6GB. It's not only stupid to do this but also a torture to less fortunate folks

Hey all!! Guys I need help. I´m building a PS3, PS4, Xbox collection. More than 200 games bought. I´m sending everything to my home because right now I don´t have the consoles. Back at home, I have no internet connection I live in the mountains. Can somebody tell me the games where I need to download patches to enjoy single-player properly? For example I think Shemmue 3 needs a day 1 patch to work smoothly on PS4. Can anyone give me more examples? I am super lost. I´ve been out of big console gaming for years.. Any help could work.

I remember the first time I encountered digital only physical was back in 2016 when PUBG was still cool. I asked for it for Christmas on Xbox One. Opened the case, looked inside, and just said "what is even the fucking point?"

The season pass disc issue where you buy the game disc only to digitally download the majority of the content afterwards, is an issue I've noticed a lot of physical games have in general and I think that will only get worse if the early access, release now and fix later trend continues. It's a pain to buy a disc and put it in just to wait hours to download updates and patches that are bigger and have more content than the game itself, just to be able to play it online with friends or in many cases at all. That might be the nail in the coffin for physical releases as one of the biggest benefits of a physical game is being able to play it then and there

18 minute video and doesn't even mention the difference between owning a licence to a digital copy and owning an actual physical copy. Because only a true physical copy is guaranteed to last and can be shared, while a digital copy can become impossible to download for many different reasons...

The internet thing is so true and we need to talk about that. I have a friend who hasn’t had internet like EVER and probably won’t ever have it until he’s forced. His Aunt has it, which he goes there to update his console and SOMETIMES update his games so he can get free content etc. I honestly hope to see him buy Cyberpunk for the old gen consoles which is new to him… gonna be hilarious when I hear the story behind all that

Scott makes a fair point but let's not forget about the death of physical PC releases, they don't exist anymore. After a time it's just more convenient to have a steam account with 100 games than all those boxes

FINALLY somebody fucking talks about this! Every time I see mentions of why retail is dying, THIS never gets bloody mentioned! And yet it's so obvious! This fucking trend is the only reason I even got Steam in the first place! My Skyrim DVD didn't contain the bloody game, just a code to get it from Steam!

This reminds me of modern physical pc games. Modern pc games that are physical come with a disc that just installs or launches steam, and then theres a code inside. WHATS THE POINT. Why even have the disc if it's just to launch steam

the fortnite physical release was so fucking predatory, when i worked at gamestop i had so many confused parents who heard of this game and wanted to buy it for their kid, it was so hard to get some of them to understand that it's actually a free game and theres no reason to spend money on it but literally none of us would let anyone buy it without explaining that first. everything about fortnite is designed to trick people into spending money and it's disgusting.

I did some digging around on Reddit to find that Scott lied to a lot of people when he said he wasn’t interested in politics in some of his videos. He was at black lives matters rally’s and posted stuff to support the “movement” on Twitter. No one cares I’m sure but I don’t support those who encourage those terrorists to keep doing what they’re doing. They were attacking innocent people and stealing. I think Scott really just supported it so he wasn’t cancelled but that’s still just a sellout move
