    Switching from physical to digital


    Heres my siutation. I bought titanfall (disc version) when it came out. I don't currently own my own xbox one, I use my brothers. Now my co-worker bought the xbox one titanfall bundle and got titanfall (digital download code). He told me he would trade me
    his code and $20 for my physical copy of it. Now, assuming the code works, when I download it and play it on my brothers xbox one, when I eventually get my own xbox one, will it be able to work on that one?

    Thanks

    :)

    I don't ever sell my games, so whether I get digital or physical copy it doesnt really matter to me. I am starting to prefer digital copies. To me digital has more advantages to it. Dont need to worry about scratches or switching the disc. Better yet, Im
    not gonna lose it or my silly cousin gonna steal it from me (lol).

    trading in physical game for digital copy

    Hi Coll,

    There is no exchange program to switch a physical disc for a digital download. For digital downloads, you will need to purchase the game from the Xbox Store, although you could of course use money from a currency/gift card that can be bought at a physical
    retailer like Gamestop.

    Digital or Physical?

    Previously physical but with a broken blu ray drive I may switch to digital.... I worry about the quality of the drive in the xbox one....

    Disc vs. Digital

    I will choose physical discs. Digital day one sales would have to be phenomenal for me to switch. The other incentives don't impress me.
