Default What do you think the future of consoles will be?

In the future, I believe consoles will stream or download games only. There will be no physical games and the console won't open.

There will be no hard drive. All game saves will be stored on online servers.

The console will also be much smaller, partly due to no disc dive and no hard drive.

It will basically be a streaming box, and in addition to game streaming, it'll have other entertainment apps, like Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, etc. So the future of consoles are basically small streaming boxes, similar to a Roku.

What do you think the future of consoles is?

If it's fully streaming, it may just end up being an app on your tv or something.

But I think we have a while before that. Fast internet isn't ubiquitous enough to support that.

Digital only is probably coming, but may be a generation away.

even if could, I want my physical media, so no discs = a no buy from me

Unfortunately all signs appear to be all digital for new systems but I do see a booming market for retro physical games.

Future of console gaming is hard to say but there isn't any future for them.
They're already in the mobile and server. So in the future, you would be playing streaming them on the TV or wall (with the help of next-generation projectors) directly from the server. Or for offline playing by using specific storing devices for games.
