The only PF1 products I have are the Bestaries, because I like the art.
Everything else? Physical or PDF, it's not worth it to me. Someone will make a wiki, or a tool, or an SRD, and that will be a better way to browse, reference, and find content for me since I've never much cared for the tactile nature of the physical products and PDFs are just worse to search.
PF's adventure paths are something that isn't online, which I used to like. But now I homebrew and, despite playing tabletop at least 6 times a week, I'm wondering if I'll put any money towards PF2. I'd like to. I'd like to support a cool system (if it pans out as well as I hope). The products offered just aren't anything I want. I'd feel like I'm donating to a charity.
The products I'd actually pay for are cool stuff integrated with Roll20 (other platforms are a nice idea, but in realistic terms I'll stick with that specific most popular one). It's digital tools. (Imagine if the monster building rules that have been talked about... came with a little widget to automatically adjust monsters, apply templates, etc? How awesome!). My players would like character-building stuff that lets them automatically level. What about an online resource where all the books I buy are compiled together, and when I search for a specific monster, it includes the art and a premade token? That's value to me, rather than Googling the art not on the SRD and then making a token manually.
There are many that still play with physical books, and Paizo will make good money there. There are many that still love the Adventure Paths, and Paizo will make good money there. There are many that just prefer the PDF presentation to the practicallity of an SRD. Paizo will also make money there. But there's a notable group like me that plays online, likes the power of an SRD, and doesn't play Adventure Paths. There's just... nothing to buy.
