For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Tell GR: Will You Stick With Retail Or Go All-Digital With Your Next-Gen Console?

Posted on Tuesday, October 15 @ 15:55:11 Eastern by


On November 15th and November 22nd, launch days for both Xbox One and PS4, it's expected that you'll be able to download all of the games you want to play. In fact downloadable games could be considered the best reason to get an Xbox One this holiday with Killer Instinct and Peggle 2 chief among several digital XBLA games.

Microsoft's XBLA or Xbox Live Arcade seemed to get the digital-download ball rolling with great exclusives, but it seems like Sony's PlayStation Network has the lead offering a better digital package with full games frequently launching the same day as retail. I think I'll probably go all-digital on next-generation consoles. I think my shelf would look a lot better without a bunch of plastic cases holding shiny bagels on it.

What about you? Will you cling to retail or embrace a hard-drive, minimalist life, and extra bandwidth? Obviously we'll continue to have a soft spot for collector's editions, but it might be nice to get rid of some crap, right?
