    PS3 can play downloadable games too, so what do you mean by "new playstation could be an all digital affair".

    Or they could just make every game downloadable.

    I feel pretty confident is saying that games will still come on physical media.

    I think we'll see day and date digital releases next-gen, like the Vita. But otherwise, I agree, too early for platform holders to abandon retail.

    Yeah I'm of the same mindset. Maybe we'll see digital only 5-10 years from now but there's still a big percentage of gamers who prefer physical copies over digital when possible. Casual games aside, lots of people still like to build collections. Of course there's always a chance that they'll come up with new ways of selling at retail; I can see them putting out more collector's additions that contain digital download codes and goodies.

    u can't just throw the idea of physical copy of the game, look at PSVita, uses physical copy of the game "PSVita Game Card", ... a lot of folks out there still have no internet connection in their house.

    Just keep physical discs but have the option of buying a digital copy of a new game for say $5 cheaper or so.
