Enjoy storing all your videos and music uncompressed from now on. Also for videogames, this means PC exclusives can be 100s of GBs in size - imagine a world the size of 100 Morrowinds, with uniquely generated NPCs that can live out years of their life in-game. Imagine animations with one mirrion frames. The best part is that putting these games on consoles will be IMPOSSIBLE, expecially the Pii U.

Imagine the development cost and time of such a game. It'll cost $300 when it comes out a decade after being announced.

Fun fact: Most "uncompressed" video isn't. Not even Blu-Rays are. You're looking at 742GB/h for 1080p at 60fps if you're using a camera that doesn't do on the fly compression as it captures and that's only at 10-bit color depth.

Wow this technology seems to be so great that it even increases the average internet speed by 10 times and also allows the creation of huge unique worlds without a stupidly high amount of manhours for the development that would increase the costs of these games to the billions otherwise.

I'm sure it does because otherwise the stuff you suggested would still be impossible.

Of course I was imagining they'd be procedurally generating the major stuff. Though with this they don't need 100s of GBs for a game install, just 100s of GBs of super RAM.

I think there are bottlenecks in areas other than memory.

Hey, I'm willing to wait a day to download a 100 GB game if it's good and I have the space for it. Sorry if your ISP is crap and caps you to 5 GB per month.

someone doesn't know how RAM works.

Well, if I told you about a game with a world as big as Skyrim's 20 years ago you would've imagined that it would've required tens of thousands of man hours and billions of dollars in production.
Along with hardware improvements we also have even better software every day, so in the future it will not be impossible to create a world 100 times bigger than Morrowind's.
