    people have been saying that since 1993 when the internet started taking off.
    Sorry, there will always be B&M stores.

    Holy shit, so much trolling, and so much stupidity in this thread.

    Do you mind if I put my lawn chair right here, take a load off, and enjoy all this?

    Ahem.

    actually gamestop notices this is happening, this is why they might be planning to go back to retro games and expanding into DLC/Digital downloading.

    What will happen is, we will still get the game cases instore but instead of a disc being inside the case it will be the PSN Code, as not everyone has a Credit Card or a Visa Debit Card. So it would be stupid to only make titles available on PSN.

    your friend has a shit mustache from speaking too much shit
    The reason I don't like download only is because I don't have unlimited internet, I have very limited internet, so I can't download games because it takes up too much internet.

    Your cousin's uncle eh…why not just say "my uncle" or "my dad"? (Think it through...you'll catch up.) They've got more pull than "my friend" and my dad reckons the OP's friend is an idiot.

    Don't believe any rumours or speculation regarding the next generation of consoles. You can rest assured they will not be download-only nor will GameStop go out of business any time soon.

    The PSP Go epic fail taught Sony there is not a market for download-only products. Digital distribution is an adjunct to bricks and mortar, not a replacement.

    Maybe in 25-30 years when the every household in the world is connected via fiber-optic, but not next generation, nor the one after that, but maybe the one after that.

Sony and Microsoft could not afford to take this chance.
    This is the interwebs, not a place for your fancy "logical thinking". My friend told me, so it must be true. Take your practical sensibilities offline where they belong!

    didnt notice the 4 taped over the 3 thats in a different font than the word playstation, or perhaps the ripples from the bad pasting job on the picture of the console itself?

    It's actually the early launch model. Like a "testing the water" version for those of us who can't afford to buy the 1TB right off the bat. A friend of mine got the same boxed version as the kid in the video had and had a few of us over to play a demo disc that came with the system of next-gen games that will be released at full-launch. Trust me, that video is anything but fake! Judging by my own hands-on time with the 80GB model at my friend's place, it's going to really make everyone's heads spin.

    Wow, I guess you have convinced me that it is real. Since you said it came with a demo disc I am guessing it will be disc based, that's awesome!

    Your friend is a fucking idiot. Not only are Sony and Microsoft not forward-thinking enough to go download only, but GameStop would just sell game codes instead of selling actual games. I hope next gen is download only, but I highly doubt it will be.

    Why? I can understand wanting Sony and Microsoft to really push digital titles, have all the latest titles on the store and at discounted prices, but you have to realize there are millions of people who aren't able to get highspeed internet and a download only console would fuck them. I, unfortunately, and one of those people who can't get highspeed internet where I live and it is a pain in the ass to download anything from the PSN, especially games that are multiple gb's in size.

    I do hope both next gen consoles have something similar to Steam in that you can pre-load the games onto the HDD because that would make a lot of the internet issues better, but I still don't think that is enough to alienate all the gamers with shitty internet. I think we have a few more generations to go through before we have a download only console.
