Former Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski has claimed he will never make another disc-based game, and asserted that the current industry model relying on Game Informer cover reveals and E3 announcements is dead.

I wonder if developers realize that downloading 30gb+ games is not feasible for the majority of markets.

The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.

Isn't it though?

I have no idea what the standard internet connection speed is in different parts of the world. All I know, is that my 26/12mbit connection is only ranked as a B- on speedtest.net, and it's slower than 34% of all connections in my area.

Only 2 years ago a 10mbit connection was the dream, today it's considered slow, buit like I said, I have no idea what the standard is in other parts of the world.

Digital is the future. If it wasn't Steam already wouldn't be making billions of dollars on digital distribution alone.

Too bad it's up to consumers, not developers what's dead or not. Many people still prefer physical games.

Here in Aus I have the fastest Internet out of all my acquaintances (Only adsl2+ though) and BF4's 25gb took me like 6-7hrs to DL. I think that's too long for most people.
