I haven’t said anything yet about digital vs. physical, but I’ll chime in with my neurosis.
First, in have always preferred physical media over digital for any type of entertainment. I do have some digital games on PS4, though, and I acknowledge the convenience of a digital title.
But, I’m a bit crazy.
I am so sick this day and age of having everything in the world tracked and saved. Many years ago my wife was struggling with miscarriages, and to make her happy I bought the first couple episodes of Glee for her to watch (thankfully, she didn’t care for it). But guess what is forever in my purchase history on PS4? Glee. And every game I’ve played in the last decade is tracked via trophies. And every service I’ve purchased on PS4 is tracked. Ditto iOS. Have I ever gifted an app to a friend? Yes, that’s forever archived, too. Perhaps I’m totally nuts, and I understand why all this might be good for a customer, but I despise the ever-growing list of all my digital activity over the years.
Thus far, I’ve been purposefully avoiding any kind of persistent digital identity on the Switch. This has prevented me from buying certain digital-only games, but so be it. It has been physical-only for me with the Switch and I anticipate that it will continue to be.
