    I'm getting the Digital Edition because it's more symmetrical (lol) and I don't care about discs anymore. What do you guys think?

    Normal edition, the digital one would have to be significantly cheaper for me to even consider it. Although it does look better than the standard Playstation 5.

    Even though I’m not planning on buying another disc, I’m going standard so I can play the PS4 games that I have on discs.

    All my games on PS4 are downloads. The only disc I had was DRIVECLUB & I sold that replacing it with a download version when it was on sale very cheap. I much prefer the idea of only downloading games & the look plus cheaper price of a non disc console. However, there's also a part of me that feels I want a disc drive in a console or PC. Seeing as I have no plans to buy a PS5, I guess it doesn't matter to much at the moment.

    Disc version for me since half of my PS4 games are physical and half are digital.

    I only buy digital games if there's no physical option.

    I have a reasonable collection of physical games and don't want to be cut off from those special offers on physical games which at times blow the digital discounts out of the water.

    If I buy a PS5, or any console for that matter, it would be the disc version. I guess I'm of that generation where I want all my media physical.

    It does make the PS5 look like it's pregnant but oh well :lol:

    Digital version because I have not had a disc since Xbox 360/ PS3 era and even then it wasn't a lot.

    I love the idea of digital and would prefer it but PS store prices are usually more expensive than discs at other retailers.
    I've found many games at 50% less or more in some cases by shopping around.

    This is why I never ever buy digital.

    I prefer to owe the game not least it for a period of time.

    If its only $50 less, I would still buy the disc version. But if its $100 less, I would get the digital version.

    Probably the digital one since it'll live behind my PC monitor and I want something as small as possible. I only plan on getting GT7 and MLB The Show every couple of years so it's not like I'll have a huge catalog of games.

    I'd say the one with CD drive.

    Same goes that I would rather have Xbox Series X over Xbox Series S.

    Disc version

    I need/want the blu-ray player functionality and games come out cheaper if you re-sell them.

    You'd rather have both options than be pigeonholed into digital only, right?
    Disc version for me!

    Yeah disc version for me too!

    Given I don't have a regular blue-ray player it will be essential for me to have the disc so I can watch my films/anime collection and so forth.

    Plus sometimes I buy things spur of the moment if I see them in a shop so I prefer having both options though with all the CO-VID restrictions of late I suspect the majority of my purchases will be done through the PS5 store.

    I really hate the way the world is going right now where basically everything is now a “pay for the right to access this intangible thing” and it gets taken away from you the second it gets pulled from a marketplace or your subscription ends.

    I’m going regular PS5 because of that. I’ll cling to my physical clutter for as long as I can before it gets phased out and personal possessions no longer exist.
