      haha!

      With gamepass now though, it's not so bad.

      Honestly if I was to buy again now, I'd be very tempted to buy digital only. I say that with 5 of 6 discs sitting in the cupboard and about 250 digitally licensed games installed. If you're happy to wait for new games to come on sale or to purchase from third parties online, it's so much cheaper than buying a physical copy. Not to mention Game Pass or GwG. And realistically, it's not like the 2nd hand game market is what it used to be.

    Eagerly await the shift in attitude here when the digital only next gen models likely cost much less… Encouraging buyers onto digital subscriptions is where the moneys at.

      Unless they’re giving it away for free, digital will cost more in the long run so won’t shift my opinion

        I'm predicting big differences. They can make up money in saved distribution costs.

      Much? $50/100 max on PS5. The Xbox series X sad edition a bit harder to tell as we don't know anything about it yet

      •  

        Absolutely. Though rumours are suggesting it'll be very competitive. MS definitely has to hit the better price.

      Yup, PlayStation really need to up their game on next gen for a service that rivals games pass (said as a die hard PS fan boy)

        At a cost. Also FTTP is required.

      Pretty much every game makes you download a 50GB update before you can play it anyway. I'm not sure what's on the disks.

        Lots of binary solos.

        This, no big deal, I can often get around 50gb in an hour on FTTN so I don't see the issue.

    What is the better option for just streaming apps like Netflix Disney+ etc

    Xbox one of Apple TV

    I am in a Apple ecosystem but wondering if a Xbox one would be better but would the Apple TV be better for future app updates and continuation on apps and newer apps etc?

    • +1 vote

      I've never liked consoles for streaming. Think it's grossly overkill and clumsy. Shield is much better though….

      • +7 votes

        The Shield is overkill for streaming. I use the apps builtin to my TV.

        •  

          Shield isn't just good for streaming.

        • +17 votes

          The apps built in to your TV is overkill. I use a series of mirrors from the TV down the hall

            @BjornMorrison: What do you do about sound? Or do you just use subtitles?

        •  

          Is it ? I am thinking of getting the Shield purely for streaming 4k and Dolby. Even though the tv and mibox support 4k, looks like only the shield will support Atmos. Don't want to get apple tv as I mostly have Google.

      •  

        Agreed, never 'just works'. VodaTV vote for me, Shield kept running out of space due to the files Plex cached. Couldnt find a way to permanently shift the Plex cached files onto external drive so made it redundant.

        •  

          Was that running as a Plex Server though?

          I think they've changed where those files sit these days, though I use a DS918.

            @UFO: Maybe it streams games for people who are on Gigabit NBN??

    Xbox site says Regularly$349.00 *$239.00 but no listed retailers want to sell it but big w.
    Even Microsoft doesn’t sell it.
    The $239 means nothing.

    Don't do it. One day digital games will be all there is an we'll look back and ask how did we let that happen.

    No lending a game to a friend.
    No gifting an old game.
    No selling a game if you don't like it or have finished it etc.
    No buying second hand games for cheap.
    If you're account gets hacked and the account banned, you lose all your games.

      On the other hand, Gamepass, Origin Access, Netflix etc have proven the digital subscription model works very well. I personally think there's enough room for both digital and physical to grow.

      • +3 votes

        And… there's no stuffing about putting the disc in every time the console needs to read the licence off of it (in the instance you like to play different games on different days).

        But losing all your games to a hacked account? That's a bit of a stretch mate. What's more likely is someone breaking into your house and taking all those physical discs. Or you accidentally scratching one of the discs (or one of your kids?) rendering them useless.

        The convenience of not stuffing about with discs and having to put each one in is worth their eventual demise.

        •  

          Ya know what's not unlikely? These pandering companies permabanning you because of wrong think in the future. It's basically already here.

          •  

            @Hunterex: Don't break the rules, won't get banned.

            Two factor ID/sign in for account changes and no one can "hack" anything and do dastardly deeds under your name.

            • +1 vote

              @UFO: Rules change. Eventually the TOS will become like our laws. Everyone has broken some law at some point. It'd turn into what Twitch has turned into. Arbitrary rules with no reason for the ban necessary. Sure don't break the rules now. One day you'll be banned because you're not liked by some sensitive soul.

          Imagine being too lazy to get off your ass and change discs, is that really your selling point ?

          •  

            @solidussnake: Have a decent collection and/or have some kids mate, then you'll understand it has absolutely nothing to do with being lazy.

            Convenience doesn't mean lazy, it's means easier/quicker/productive. If you want to use discs no worries- but don't get used to it ;).

      Plenty of digital games cheap too, many never released physically… Can easily lend digital…

      Gifting old games? So?

      Second hand games aren't something developers are keen on, it's only a matter of time.

      PC players don't seem to mind all these years… Plenty of games bought for a dollar or two.

      I don't want a house full of clutter anymore. Especially with a 3yo.

          If you even remotely care about video games then you shouldn't support a satanic corporation!
