Gamers Prefer Physical Discs Over Digital Downloads

A recent survey suggests that despite the ongoing growth of digital goods consumption, videogame consumers still prefer having their titles on physical discs.

A report by research firm Ipsos MediaCT (as reported by UK trade magazine MCV) says that over 64 percent of the over 1,000 people surveyed preferred to have their games on disc over having digital copies.

Interestingly, amongst the same respondents, only 45 percent preferred having their music on disc, and only 51 said they would rather have DVDs than downloadable movies.

A representative from the research firm said that the thriving pre-owned market is what is keeping consumers interested in physical games media. – 1up
