    Just curious, how did you purchase NHL 16, did you buy a physical disc from a retailer or web store, or buy a digital copy?

    If so what are your reasons for that choice?

    I went digital because EA access saves me $6 and I don't have to wait for Fed ex or fight traffic after work to play it.

    A lot of good points about "disc breaking" , or constantly refreshing UPS's tracking website. For me, i remember trying to goto the game store after work, and where i live rush hour traffic is a nightmare. So that alone, i could see why so many now are choosing to go digital.

    If i was gamestop, i'd be worried, real worried!

    I'm all digital this generation...except for sports games that I know I'm going to sell.

    Got $25 for NHL15 when it went into the EA Access Vault. Paid for most of my EA Access.

    I traded in shitty 15 and got about $15 towards 16, so if you dont end up breaking your disc at the end of the year, you can get a good discount for the next one.

    Digital so [MENTION=4794]Riemersmaa[/MENTION] could give me $40 cash when I was done downloading it. Also EA Access saved me 7 bucks or so
