I wanted to give my input on the physical versus digital question.
I had a PS Vita and used it a ton. I had more than 60 games. Of those 60 I had about 12 cartridges and the rest were all digital.
I know this is very much a first world problem, but changing cartridges was a pain. I'm just saying I have really experienced this issue. Just consider over 4 plus years, playing 300 days a year.. that's 1,200 days.. and multiple games a day.. that can be thousands of cartridge changes.
So obviously the bad things about digital:
1. They cost more, you can't get the good Amazon.com prices
2. I had to buy my own 200GB storage card for $78
3. If you get some bad games or finish a game you don't want, you're stuck with them and can't trade them in...
All 3 of those items add to not an insignificant amount of money, I.e. Hundreds of dollars more to go all digital..
The advantage of all digital: user experience.. it's more fun and easier and convenient.
For me, video games are all about fun, so yeah I'm splurging and making it a luxury item to go all digital and I'm glad I have.

@RunJumpStomp RE physical+download: it's fine if it can be downloaded with a used copy as well. Likely not the case for RE Revelations 2.
Physical cartridge needing a digital download is the worst of both worlds!
Two more levels of M+R I’m really bad at that game. Don’t think I’ll go for the DLC.
Right now I’m waiting for SMO - Been focusing on WoW in the meantime.
That is all we have time for today, if there is a story that I missed let me know!
