Digital Games Services
Media in the digital form is here to stay and video games are no exception. A lot of gamers today buy their games in a digital format. Many times there are a variety of reasons behind this and sometimes it’s just a matter of personal preference.
As gamers today we have more options than ever before when it comes to how we get our content. Now for those of you that have a Playstation, Xbox, or Wii U. You have access to a digital shop strait from the console. People with smart devices, of course, have access to their devices version of an app store.
People that do the majority of their gaming from a home computer you are probably familiar with services such as Valve’s Steam service or Electronic Arts Origin service. Both of these services offer digital versions of games as well as social networking features. Which is a really handy feature for you to connect with your friends and family so that you can all game together.
Of course, anyone with an internet connection can go to an online store like Gamestop, or Amazon and find and order physical copies of games, however if you are not inclined to wait then buying digital is the better option. Buy it, then just wait for the game to download and install, then you are ready to play.
The options that these services provide gamer’s can’t be overstated, especially for gamers that, either do not live near or have never known another way to consume content in this case video games. When I was younger the nearest video game store was an hours drive away. So services that we as gamers have now would have been great for the 10 year old me. One thing is certain it is indeed a great time to be a gamer.
