A game that used to be very rare and being sold for around £50 - £60 is now only £20 from the Games on Demand Xbox store.

Well worth a look if you are into this sort of thing. One of the best JRPGs I have ever played.

Because, ain't voted either way.
Game collectors are usually the ones that go for this game and big RPG players so would want the physical item.

Why would big RPG players want the physical item? It doesn't change the game in anyway and that is what should count.

Why does it matter. I wouldn't spend £20 on a non-physical download, be that music/game/video etc.

Isnt the point of this website to find the cheapest price for an item you want? No about personal preference or ideas based on odd assumptions?

Great game. However, even if I didn't already have a physical copy there's no way on Earth I'd pay £20 for a download.

It's to get the best deal. Deal isn't for me, was just giving you an opinion on why it wasn't. Assumptions are based on the usual people who buy this sort of game.

I wouldn't care at all if he wasn't a "helper", but when someone in that sort of position posts "because", it will **** me off.

I am actually interested in what people have against downloads. I wouldn't say I was abrasive to anyone else.

It's simple really:
If I buy a physical disc I own it, I can take to a friends, I can loan it, I can sell it, I can legally make a backup of it, I can play it whenever or wherever I want so long as I still have it and the equipment to play it.

If I buy a download from Xbox Live I licence it, it is tied to my Xbox and my Live account, I can't sell it, I can't back it up, I can only play it so long as Microsoft say I can, if Microsoft pull the plug on Live for 360 like they did on the original Xbox then I can no longer play that game at all.

Therefore downloads have a much much lower value than physical media, a couple of quid is fine, it doesn't matter if it just stops working one day. But £20 is a bit different.....

This is the RRP and as being the only viable digital download makes it by default the cheapest.

You cannot compare a digital item to a physical item. they are two different products. The OP has given general gamers the head's up on bypassing the collectors price hike found on trade and auction sites which makes this HOT!

He got that Helper badge for not being rude or sarcastic in his responses.

Time to download on 80k a second or less rubbish DSL


£20 is still too much regardless of how much a physical DVD copy would go for. £10 and I would consider it and then get excited at having to wait 24 hours 27 minutes and 26 seconds to play it

Yeah, this is hot - but not hot.

Hopefully it'll drive the physical game prices down. But yeah, who in their right mind would pay £20 for a download?

The game will always work, just as a disk, but rather than carrying it on a disk I could use a pendrive or just my harddrive.

The 360 system is different to the Xbox system. DLC works on or offline, and once it is downloaded it will always work. You can back it up onto flash drives or different hard drives and anyone can play a GOD game once it has been downloaded.

I go to my download history and download it from there - MS are keeping every item up for DL though these means.

If for some freak reason they didn't they offer refunds (happened with some MIDWAY games that reappeared and then the people who bought them were still able to download them and keep their refunds)

Do you not see the contradiction there. You need Microsofts permission, you need to go to them to re-download it, you need their licence servers, if you don't have that you have no game. If you have no game you wasted £20. There is nothing to stop them ceasing to support 360 in favour of a new console exactly as they did with the original Xbox. Then what happens if your HD fails, what if the data gets corrupted, what if you accidentally delete it, what if...etc. etc. You have none of those problems with a physical disc.

What happens if the 360 carves up your disc, or you sit on it, or snap it in some other random way, or your dog eats it. ???

Arguments work both ways.

Not really. You can try not feeding your games to your dog, or siting on them. You can't make a HDD not fail, they have a finite life and that life is a fraction of the life of a CD/DVD. A hard drive will fail sooner or later, their mtbf's are measured in hours, CD's/DVD's will outlive you by a long way unless acted on by some external force, their mtbf's are measured in hundreds of years.

Got to say that the first being a disc failure is more likely to happen to me then the second bit about being a klutz.

Resale value is no existent if you find a copy for £40 now you can pretty much guarantee for the next few years you will get most of that back. For me that's more economical sense. Not sure why anyone needs to defend the deal either way, you all have your preferences. I for one hope they never go down the route of getting rid of physical media CD/DVD/Blu-ray/next gen as the alternative isn't as fool proof. (Going a bit away from the deal)

OP you need to be welcoming of opinion on here otherwise your going to find yourself getting irritated far to often. ( I wouldn't venture into misc either.)

IF this deal was as good as first set out it would of been hot by now, and it still might go that way, but people have to decide this for themselves.

All of my responses are my opinion and not the views of hotukdeals as a whole. I'm a forum helper (mainly FS/FT) and post of my own free merit within the boundaries of the rules.

I can see both sides of the argument here.

With the 360 there's a reasonable chance of it chewing up a disc I suppose. My copy of Halo 3 lasted all of five minutes, although that was my fault (or rather my house mate's!).

Still, it's quite an achievement for a GoD game to not be very, very cold by now!

I wonder if this will bring down the second hand value? Not everybody will be buying it to collect, but I'm sure a retail copy will hold it's value reasonably well as there are plenty of people who do collect.

Good price and heat added. That said, for the reasons posted above I wouldn't buy an electronic copy. Even if I have to pay £50 for the game, if I can sell it for £40, then the game only cost me £10. The cost of the electronic copy is lost. Simples.

I'm a huge JRPG fan and whilst not a collector have been dying to play this game. I've been considering paying £80 for a disc copy.. for a download at £20 i'll snap their hands off.

Most JRPG fans have been begging for a reissue of this, this is the next best thing and this will be downloaded A LOT
