I think I’ve made the transition to enjoying the ease and accessibility of digital copies over physical games sold at retail, but it appears I’m still in the minority.
According to an NPD survey, 74% of gamers still prefer to own a physical copy of a video game.
The stat comes from the Core Gaming 2014, which surveyed US gamers. According to CVG, this number is down from 79% the year before, so the swing is in the direction of digital downloads but, for now, gamers still prefer something physical.
Which do you prefer? Let’s do our own survey.
