There were some guys at MAGFest who made basically the same game before Beat Saber, but Beat Saber was finished first so now they look like they copied it. Sucks to be them.

If going digital is supposed to be saving the company money, why won't it save me some too? There's no way physical and digital can cost the same. Yeah, Saber doesn't have a physical copy (yet) but I've already set my limits. I'll spend $30-$40 on a disc and $10 on digital.

I dont think its just that. I do agree with him. Digital gives us less. And would still give them profit. So, it should cost less. They are giving us a case or physical item. How much cheaper should it be? IDK. I wont put a price on it as it depends on what comes with the physical copy. But it honestly should be less for digital than the cost of physical...

Digital gives us less.


In the form of ~50 cents worth of plastic. It offers more savings on the manufacturing end than that, since physical distribution is far more expensive than the simple materials involved, but as far as what the consumer gets, it's a bit of plastic. It's also a bit more than that in the case of cart- or card-based games, since those media are much more expensive than discs (which are dirt cheap), but the point still stands. Arbitrarily setting the cap for digital purchases that much lower than physical doesn't make much sense.

I've had kids completely trash whatever physical discs I've had around the house...which were leftovers from a period when I also couldn't get with the times and go digital.

And on top of that there are other discs which just didnt stand the test of time and simply dont work anymore.

On the other hand, my Steam Library has stood through all that. For all the worry people seem to gave about how temporary Steam games can be and how they could snatch them from you any time, and how discs are permanent and yours for life...yeah I've seen nothing but the opposite being true.

Added on that is just the sheer convenience of having everything on a hard drive and not changing discs...I personally would pay a small extra fee just to not have to deal with physical media nowadays.

And yeah...I understand just saying this here on gamefaqs means nothing and this place probably is a major gathering ground for holdouts who dont think this way...but that's cool. Everything outside of this little echo chamber is going digital, and I'm more than satisfied the general trend is going towards my way if thinking. I'll take gamefaqs disapproval if it means my way will eventually win out anyway.

The plastic, which has nice artwork and is nice to look at, and the physical game itself. I already said I dont care if it was a 50 piece of plastic or $20 worth of plastic. All I said was it should be cheaper. And I still stand by it. It should be cheaper.

I've seen you complain about games like CoD and Madden being churned out yearly as retreads, wondering how gamers keep supporting them, and here you are saying you refuse to support a developer who made something different and "risky" based solely on the fact that you won't be provided some plastic that will sit on a shelf collecting dust.

You complain about companies like Activision and EA, claiming they're making gaming worse. Yet here you are, refusing to support a self-published title because you have some bizarre attachment to physical media.

Can't have it both ways, bub. When developers like those behind games like Beat Saber shutter their businesses because they're not making money, and we're left with less risk-takers and more and more sequel retreads every year, remember that you and people like you made it happen.

I dont think its that bizarre. Like, I have a brother, sister, and lots of close friends and cousins. We all play games. And we like to let each other borrow stuff. Or play the other persons games when were together. But that becomes much harder with digital. Like when I went home, my brother had my Mario Kart game nearly the whole time. He and his GF played it a lot. If it was digital, he wouldn't have been able to. Especially since I was playing a game on my switch most of the time, as well... Different things work for different people. And physical definitely works better for me. Not to say I havent bought digital. But I definitely prefer physical...

And cases do look nice. And are much easier to look through quickly when someone is looking for a game to play rather than on the console. Especially if youre using the console for something at the time. Or playing another game until its time to switch...

Yeah. Thats one of the few reasons I buy digital. If there is no physical for something I really want. Like with the most recent AA games...

See, saying you just want a hard copy because you prefer a physical edition of a game is fine. it is okay to have that preference.

Saying you only want a hard copy of the game because the developers hard work is only worth $10 to you is messed up.

Not arbitrary. When PSN first started $10 was the standard price for new content. There were occasions when I spent a few dollars more during the gamesharing days, then I went back to $10. For discs, in my experience $30 is the sweet spot for getting the best deal while the game is readily available. Below that is clearance price and I might have to visit a few stores to find a copy.

We've had this argument too. Caring for discs is your responsibility. Going digital leaves it in the hands of the company and you have no control or say over what happens. I've never had a disc 'not work'.

Yeah, I gotta disagree there. My carts and discs haven't failed me. I tried one Steam game. ONE. And it failed in spectacular fashion. It doesn't work offline and refused to start without getting the update. Which by the way messed the game up. Definitely a 'never again' moment.

I've been seeing that excuse a lot. Convenience? You mean lazy. You'll spend much more on digital just because you can't get off the couch to flip a disc. That's sad.

It's not going digital for all the reasons we've covered in other topics.

They could have sold it for $10. I choose to wait because I have so much on the backlog. It has nothing to do with the developer. I mean look at the recent Tetris. They started at $40. I laughed. Suddenly GS had the disc version on sale for $20 and I had a copy by the end of the day. Already told ya why the plastic matters.

Then there's the additional plus for waiting. Several times now I've seen an interesting digital game but held off. Later, thanks to Limited Run Games, Strictly Limited Games, Special Reserve Games, or even just UK/JP publishers, a physical copy does come around. I've gotten Rabi Ribi, all 3 Shantae games, Superhot, Alienation, Furi, Firewatch, Outlast, Rad Rogers, Dead Cells, Song of the Deep, Job Simulator, Rush of Blood, and more on a good ol' disc. I offer plenty of support, probably more than most people ever will.

Big dev, small dev, doesn't matter. $10 is what digital is worth to me because I can lose it easier. Again if they're saving money without all the production costs then I shouldn't be stuck paying full price.

Rocket League has a disc copy that I don't own. Why? Because I got it for free through Plus. I have never bought a DLC or put a dime into the game. Apparently they found people that will. Same with Fortnite. Free. Granted that disc is grossly harder to find.

Im talking about digital in general. Like when they have both a physical and digital copy. This game doesnt fall under those conditions. All I said about this game specifically was I wanna try it. But I do think digital games with a physical counterpart should be cheaper than the physical copy.

Reading is tough for you, huh? I never said you buy CoD or Madden. I said you complain about others that do. Go back and read what I posted again until you figure it out.

Someone who loves games, has a passion for them, should understand that the makers of these games share the same passion. Understand the immense amount of time, money, and resources that goes into making them. They should show their appreciation towards the developers by supporting them fully. Understandable if you can't afford every title on the market - there's hundreds every year - but for every big budget AAA game on the market that can withstand some people holding out for sales and price drops, there's scores of indie and self-published titles that are made by people who have less of a margin for weak sales numbers.

For someone who has voiced their disdain for Big Corporate Gaming, it makes little sense that you would refuse to support the "Little Guys" out there. Companies like EA and Activision aren't killing gaming. Games like Madden or CoD aren't killing gaming. Cheapskates like you are killing gaming.

First, it's not trolling when I'm right.

Next, as I said earlier there may be a disc version in the future. Gotta wait and see. Either way it doesn't excuse a company from placing a $30, $40, even $60 price on something digital.

Sounded like you implied that I support those games over smaller ones. I do complain sometimes.

Here's the thing, I buy too much. If I paid $60 for every game I'd be broke. I'd rather give everyone a little than a few companies too much. They all get supported eventually. It's not like I'm taking it for nothing.

But this is what is totally wrong with the industry right now. All of the sheep have been conditioned to think that perceived value> actual value. If you pay 60 for a physical game and get 15 hours of playtime... are you still getting more than a 30 dollar digital game that gives you hundreds of hours (or more in this case if you're willing to mod in licensed music).

Of course not, but the majority of people that believe digital counts for less will tell you otherwise. The true irony is that at this point, the only way the majority of games ever have chance of long term survival is digitally. Look at emulation... literally raising games from the dead like a technomancer and playing them on virtually any kind of hardware that supports unsigned code.

AND THEN ITT we're pretending like day one updates aren't a thing... releasing a finished game at launch is almost unheard of these days...Total schism.

No it's not. We've been over this. The license agreement for games doesn't differentiate between digital and physical copies: You don't own the software in any capacity, and your license to use it can be revoked. Sure, in practice, there's very little stopping you from just continuing to play your physical copy after that license has been revoked, but there's also nothing stopping you from downloading a crack or pirated copy of the game so you can continue to play your digital copy. Either way, you're breaking the law, so there's functionally no difference there.

Not arbitrary. When PSN first started $10 was the standard price for new content.


And holding PSN's early standard price as your standard for all games moving forward is an arbitrary decision.

Yeah, I gotta disagree there. My carts and discs haven't failed me. I tried one Steam game. ONE. And it failed in spectacular fashion. It doesn't work offline and refused to start without getting the update. Which by the way messed the game up. Definitely a 'never again' moment.

We've had this argument too. Caring for discs is your responsibility. Going digital leaves it in the hands of the company and you have no control or say over what happens.


While that's a nice sentiment on paper, the fact remains that accidentally damaging or losing a disc is considerably more likely than having a company randomly take games away, even if you're careful about it. And that's even without considering that cartridges have a finite lifespan due to the save batteries, or that systems' optical drives are the part that's the most prone to failure because of how much they move (though that's a flaw of the system, not the games themselves).

Wouldnt it be much harder to downloaded a cracked or pirated copy. Like I have no idea to do that. I feel it wold be much easier and such to play a physical copy. Especially for normal people...

Jesus christ, I came into this thread, excited that there was a popular topic about Beat Saber, and all I see are a bunch of off topic whiners whining about digial games. Beat Saber is awesome and VR is the future, get used to it. Playing Beat Saber has the same magic as the first days of DDR I had back in 2002/2003. I'm a huge rhythm game nerd and while there have been some pretty neat rhythm games lately (like Sound Voltex), nothing has grabbed me as much as Beat Saber. Sadly, a lot of the custom songs you can get are crappy weeb songs or poorly "beatmapped" good songs. The very well "beatmapped" songs are so fun to play though, some are even made in a way to actually make you dance

There were some guys at MAGFest who made basically the same game before Beat Saber, but Beat Saber was finished first so now they look like they copied it. Sucks to be them.


same with paladins and overwatch

I have no problem with Beat Saber or VR. And I buy digital when I have to. But I still like physical. Though, to be honest, I dont think physical is going away anytime soon...

I said I wanted to try it and these pudmunchers claim if you're not paying full price you're doing it wrong. At least they are paying so thanks. I get it someday.

The one prob I wonder about is if it's hard to see the notes ahead of time. In RB or DDR there's a 'highway' as they call it. The scroll into view a second ahead of time. Here since they're coming at you does it get hard to see what's behind it?

So, this is where I was kind of going with well "beatmapped" songs. There is a little community guidelines on what NOT to do when beatmapping songs (here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ocvsyitWCFR5IA7jsHwW6hR8XpXtAIORiLimPjMA_hw/edit ). A lot of it makes sense, but you would SERIOUSLY be surprised at how bad some custom songs can get. Red blocks are left handed, blue ones are right handed ones
