Well, think about it. PSN/XBL store games sales do pretty well. Plus they know the success and popularity of Steam on PC. They could save a lot by not producing physical copies. We could even start seeing more console sales like Steam typically has.

It is kind of a bummer from the consumers point because I'm sure, like some of you, I too enjoy having and seeing my physical copies lined on a shelf (or wherever you have yours).

But the change is inevitable. You gotta hop on board with these new ideas or you're just gonna make yourself miserable. It's really not too bad. Biggest downside is some internet providers (including my own) are still not aware of how much internet people use nowadays. HD streaming and the such. And they're behind technologically, which is a shame.

Physical copies aren't going anywhere. Both PS4 and the next Xbox have optical drives.

Today's video is about the games. Big emphasis on Gran Turismo and "non-traditional" games. Maybe we'll see a glimpse of GT6?

I didn't mean it as if by this next gen it was forcing it to a complete stop. Just that there's really no reason to continue producing physical copies of games. Just allow consoles for larger/interchangeable HDD's.

True for some people. But for people in third world countries like Australia where they have 20 Gb bandwidth caps, it would suck. Also harder for people to give games as gifts, and many people prefer having that physical game like you said. You can share it, sell it, whatever. Well, MS might block use games but I doubt Sony will.

The Australia thing was a joke so CALM DOWN shrimp lovers

I like physical copies, it would feel wierd to me paying more than about 20 for something that I can't physically be handed in return for my cash, also currently full games on the PSN are ridiculously overpriced, for A lot of games, it cost about 150% of the retail price to buy games as downloads from Sony.

Which is why I'll almost never pay the full $60 price for the digital copies. Unless it's from a series I really enjoy. Charging the full $60 is just so jewey.

And as much as I enjoy the physical copies of games; they're sure lacking nowadays. Used to come with a poster and a thick booklet of info. Now it's just an empty case with the disc. Unless you're paying $30+ for a CE (which have also been either lacking or fucking over-the-top bonkers).

:0 Sign into PSN on your PS3, y'all. Sony is giving away $10 in PSN credit.

Microsoft gives you 25 cents in credit for your birthday. Lol

edit: US only it seems, so check your US account if you have one.

Only for "loyal" customers in the US, my US account is hardly used so I haven't got it, why no love for the rest of the world Sony?

I can't remember the last time I purchased a physical copy of a game.

I can buy steam CD keys online much cheaper than any retail store can offer.

They have archived videos up on their streaming site.

They're also broadcasting 'watching it Live' on your PS3. But it's through the internet "browser" on the PS3. And you're bombarded with certificate notifications. Once you get through 3-4 of them - it doesn't work. lol
