    Default GTA V Disc copy vs Digital Copy

    http://m.huffpost.com/uk/entry/3954452/

    So basically the article talks about how there is some graphic issues with the PSN download compared to the hard copy disc.

    Here's some general pros and cons between Disc and Digital copies.

    Disc Pros:
    You can re-sell/ trade ( who in their right mind would want to with this game)
    You have something to show what you paid for. Put it on a shelf to showcase.

    Disc Cons:
    Can be easily lost/cracked/scratched.. Etc

    Download Pros:
    Can gameshare with friends.
    Can't get lost/cracked/scratched.. Etc
    Supposedly faster game loading
    No stress on the disc reader/ no annoying sound

    Download Cons:
    Takes forever to download
    Takes up a good ammount of space on hardware
    Slight graphic issues compared to disc

    All in all I would say Welcome to the new age, to the new age.
    Downloading is more convenient, don't have to go all the way to the store, and for someone like me who has siblings, I don't have to worry about my shit getting fucked up.

    Pretty soon get ready to see discs getting replaced by digital downloads and becoming obsolete. Realistically probably in the next 10-20 years or so.

    Forever? 4-7 hours doesn't seem that long.

    Fuck you.




    The graphics problem can easily be fixed with a patch, btw. What's on the disk is digital, same thing that's up for download. If anything, you'd think the graphics would turn to shit after being mass copied to disks in a factory in China.

    Lmao you didn't like that little pun I threw In there.. Welcome to the new age, I don't like that song btw, just thought it would be funny to throw that in there.

    I know the graphics issue can be fixed. I'm not a graphics whore that's for sure. I'm downloading the game because I already promised I would to my friend + I know I won't have a disc to get fucked up by my little sister.

    @Deadry, never heard of the phrase "You take forever" apparently not...

    Even if I did download the game, I wouldn't gameshare it with anyone. Rockstar deserves every cent they can get out of this game, it's so great. I wouldn't cheat them out of $60, even if it's nothing compared to the 1 billion they've made already, just because some nigger is too poor to buy the game.

    Discs can't get fucked up if you keep them away from toddlers or if you don't do anything stupid. Driving to the store? Yeah that's hard. But I guess we both have our opinions.
