Yea its definitely more helpful to know starting numbers. Ben took the factual route so I'll take the low (brow) road. A woman will always be 30% more satisfied but 30% added to 6 inches is better than 30% added to 4 inches.



Wait, what was your sick mind thinking...I was talking about purses!

I recall another X1 exclusive seeing a "significant" increase in pre-orders after it was announced as being exclusive and we still don't know the number of sales. For all we know the pre-existing pre-orders might have been on PC and PS4. Obviously final sales will matter, but I just don't think this is a going to mean much.

There's no saying where those preorders for TR went. It's still coming out on multiple platforms.

But how many people will actually purchase it? Just because the pre-ordered it does not mean they will get the game. A pre-order can be canelled. Well I guess from retail. A digital Download can't be cancelled though.

On that note. I preordered Infamous: First Light last night from the PSN.

Very excited about the release of Uncharted 4 and FarCry 4 and curious if there's an advantage to buying it and downloading from the PlayStation Store vs disks from Amazon?

You won't have to swap discs out and you won't need a place to store the disc. Those are really the only advantages.

You won't have a disk to keep, re load, sell, give away, use for target practice etc.
And you get to buy it again when Sony drops the ball and loses your proof of purchase (you never know).



I'm bitter.

Which can be a pretty big advantage, depending on your point of view.

I'm in the digital camp. I can't stand dealing with game discs. So with this Gen the only game discs I will use are rentals. Anything I buy is digital.
