It won't be perfect, but going all digital won't be as bad as you think on the PS4 because of the PlayGo feature. Unlike for say, PC, we'll be able to start a download and begin playing the game long before all of the content is on our console (within the hour I've heard). The rest of the data will continue being loaded and installed in the background.
Also, we can activate downloads from PCs and our phones so that content can be obtained while we aren't even at home, and I'm guessing Sony will eventually let us pre-dload games once they figure out how to better prevent people from unlocking the assets like they did with the digital version of GTAV.
I'm going to try and go all digital this gen, so Amazon access to files is a nice surprise for me. Three things though:
1. Hopefully we can input Amazon's digital game codes away from the PS4 so we can start the dloading process ASAP if we want.
2. Any Amazon disc sales and DLC promotions need to carry over to the digital side.
3. I would like a digital game to be released at the same time as the disc version, instead of only being offered when the PSN store gets it.Edited by joeblow - 11/12/13 at 8:02am
