Jelly Deals: Super Mario Odyssey discounted digitally pre-launch

@Toothball No, not at all, I do get the appeal, but I don't understand how companies can not charge less for games, knowing how much money they save themselves by selling digital copies.

I'm sure it was sold to us 10 years ago or so that everybody would benefit and that it should make games cheaper.

I went to buy The Witness a couple of weeks ago having really enjoyed Braid, only to find out that it was over 30 for a digital copy of an indie game on Xbox One. There was no way I was going to pay that out of principle.

Does anybody actually prefer digital to a boxed copy?

You're paying the same (or sometimes more) money for the same thing, except you're losing the ability to trade the game in, or lend it to a friend, or take it round a mates house, you get no box, or instruction manual, nothing to put in your lovely collection of games and potentially no way to play it in the future when you have a new account or the game isn't on the store any more or whatever.

I will not buy any game online unless it's around a tenner or less because I think it's just a big swindle. My games collection goes back to the early 1980s and I can still get any console out and put any game in it and play it.

This whole issue is just the kind of thing that makes me not admit to being a gamer very often, or ever playing games online against other gamers I don't know. It's just embarrassing.

The best place to complain would be the EA forums.
