Poll: Would You Buy a Digital-Only Console?

By Mark Delaney, 18 days ago
Happy Friday TA! Last week's poll asked about the month of games ahead. Which one has our community most excited? Well the answers were pretty well split. The Division 2, Telltale's series finale of The Walking Dead, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice all polled very well, with Ubisoft's looter shooter taking the top spot among named options, though the highest vote-getter was, surprisingly, "none" with over 21% of the votes.

This week, we're following up on the continued rumors of a discless Xbox One coming this year. It's not the first time we've heard the rumor mill buzzing about this, and though for some it's surely not very exciting news, it does indicate what the future of games may look like. With that in mind, let's put some stats to it. Would you consider buying a digital-only console? We think we know how this community will generally swing on this debate, so we've included a few options more nuanced than just a simple yes or no. Sound off in this week's poll!
