The console releases do both have disc versions, allowing people without internet access to enjoy the game. It’s still impressive considering the large number of PC gamers that are out there and how much longer it has been out on the PC. This gap will likely increase even more following releases on the PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, and PS4.
