Of course file sizes will grow.

That said, internet speeds will rise, and storage space will grow, too.


lol, as if.


seconded

But of course storage space will grow. I feel by the time we're dealing full force with these games we'll have a petabyte.

You speak as if all other technology will remain as is while games advance.

Internet speed alone, in the past 10 years i have gone from dial up to 100Mb/s fibre. Gone from 1gb HDD to 1TB HDD and SSDs.

Internet speeds will remain the same, but people will be paying more for data caps.

Said media will cause pc games to be about anywhere from 10-30gigs+ packed for download.

Kind of already a thing.

It's not like you have to have all of your games installed at once. Install what you don't intend on playing again. Not to mention drives will keep getting bigger and cheaper. Only issue might be internet speed, but that just means you'll have to wait a few more hours before you can play your games. Not a big deal.

He is probably referring to America, where our internet is crap. We just have bad infrastructure, and there are actually many rural areas all in middle US, some of which are stuck with dial up or satellite.

Hell, I live in Orange County, pretty nice area, and no one wants to bother upgrading the lines in my area, stuck at 15MB for $50.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Australia isnt much better than the US, inferstructure wise. However, because there is more than one ISP in each city we get better prices and more competitiveness. It was going to change and we were going to get 1Gbps fibre rolled out accross australia, but now the liberal party is in government thats not happening yet. ):
