Cold, next day pizza is the best though. It makes sense to charge more for it.

It's a great place to go out, the fact that you know your chances of making it out alive at the end of the night are only 50/50 only adds to the fun and excitement.

I dunno, whenever I order with Pizza Hut it's always delivered stone strawberry floating cold.

Takeaway pizza is ALWAYS undercooked as they get it out to you as soon as possible. I always turn the oven on so I can cook it for an extra few minutes!

Physical sales down 20% year on year. Game shares fall 2.5% year on year

The report claims people are buying less games. People buying more games digitally is probably closer to the truth in the decline of physical sales.

I reckon about 90% of my PS4 purchases are digital now. The launch pricing of games remains pretty silly but there are some great deals available in the sales. On my Switch and 3DS the picture is reversed, though, with around 90% of my purchases being on physical media.

When I do buy a physical copy it is always from an online retailer. The GAME stores near to me seem to have a poor selection of games and high prices, whilst my local Tesco and Morrison stores - whilst both large - have an awful selection of games and are usually out of stock.

I'm mostly digital on PS4 now. Picking up so many things in sales on PSN, not to mention the PS+ offerings mean I'm well up to around 250 games on the account.

Which doesn't even include the 8/9 disc games I have either.

It's rare I get something on launch day digitally though. Far too expensive on PSN. Though I will admit there have been some regrettable drunk purchases.

Check out some of our stuff!

I did have a stage of buying too much stuff on PSN... looking back, it was pretty silly, especially where I bought games at launch and then barely played them. I'm getting better, though, and questioning whether I will actually play the game before getting it. Having less dough to spend on gaming is a big factor, too :lol: .

I don’t have much time available for gaming anymore and so buy a lot less than I used to and am content to wait until games I want are on sale for a decent price.

I only own one physical game now, GTA:V on the Xbone and I only have that disc because the game is never available on a really cheap offer. All my other games are now digital.

I think I only have 4 physical PS4 games - MGS5, PES16, GTA5 and...something? Witcher 3 maybe? I dunno.

Everything else (Skyrim, Diablo 3, NMS, Minecraft) is digital.

Half price being £25ish?

I have owned the game physically on 360 and now on Xbone. If am going to triple dip on a 4 year old game then it needs to be well below £20.

I just checked. £27.50.

That's not a decent sale price imo for a game I already own.

No, erm you mention it hasn't been on sale for a good price, I just meme'd that it's 50% off my dude.

My gif is my reaction to you missing the point.
