    Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I'm curious as to people's opinions/recommendations of downloading NCAA 14 as opposed to getting the disc.

    Although I haven't had any problems yet, I know many people who have had problems with their PS3 being unable to read discs, but can still play games downloaded from the Playstation Store. So my thought would be to do that, but my concern is of any potential problems people have had with a digital copy. So for any people that have downloaded games in the past I'd like to get some opinions.

    If you have hard drive issues can you re-download the game?

    I believe so. Once it is bought I think it is saved in your PSN account externally.

    I would recommend digital games over hard copies. I've downloaded many games in the past and have had no issues to date.

    As you mentioned earlier, you can re-download games if necessary and I have done this several times. If you have the hard drive space, I'd say go for it.

    Personally, I'm going to buy the hard copy first from Gamestop so I can trade in NCAA 13 for like $12. If my PS3 fails to read discs consistently--it has failed for short periods of time--I'll just sell the hard copy and download the digital version.

    will ncaa 14 be available for digital download on release day?

    if thats the case, i may just do that and return the copy coming in the mail.

    can anybody confirm that it will be in the PSN/XBLA sections for download on release day?

    Most games I do, but NCAA I play from the day it releases until the new one comes out.

    i usually do, but most the time i wait and miss actual worth while trade in deals and only get 15 bucks etc. i know, better than nothing, but id rather have a digital download copy of my sports games. cant wait for that on X1.

    PSN will have NCAA 14 out at 6pm today.

    360, per usual, wont have it for download for a few months. bah!

    Good point, I have a problem, I hit the end of a sports life cycle, and trde the games for action/war games, then beat those, then rebuy the sports games used before the new releases to get me back in the swing of things. :dead:

    I have bought Madden 13 (4) times, Fifa 13 (2) times, NBA 2K13 (3) times

    FML...May go digital on my PS4 and X1, gotta stop this BS

    lol.. ive been there done that myself, ha.

    i feel like im losing my sports gaming interest outside of NHL for whatever reason anymore. even with NHL, just gets stale etc.

    i think my problem is trying to get the games to play as realistic as possible. i then get frustrated and then just stop trying and put the disks away.

    i said to myself and Nvschultz1325 last week, im going to enjoy NCAA 14 no matter what. make a few tweaks etc, ignore all the bugs/glitches threads and just enjoy the game. go through years of Dynasty's like i did back in the day. well, im going to "try" and do that.

    i hoping i dont catch slideritus this year.. LOL
