I think games should be installable so you can play without the disc

It's totally doable frankly, all Sony would have to do is make it so that you can only play digital copies while signed in and the system requires the disc once a week or else it locks you out of the digital copy, I'd love this feature, anybody else think it'd be nice?

Will never happen. I can already see the account sharing nightmares with people all rotating discs so they could pretty much get a game free.

Won't happen unless consoles decide to go all CD-Key on us.

When you say signed in, you mean you want us all to be online in order to play every single game?

That's already happening. Say hello to digital downloads of retail games!

That would pretty much be the end of things if you could do a full install on every game. People complain developers are nickel and diming us now? lmao Take a wild guess what would happen if full installs were always available without some sort of "locking".

Not gonna happen. Not when you've got 4GB 360s and 20GB PS3s floating around.

That would kill rental companies. If you could copy discs to your 360 or PS3, my 500gb hard drive would be full in no time.

Did people not read my post where I specifically said you'd need to be logged onto PSN to use a digital copy and that you'd need to insert the disc once a week otherwise it locks (or deletes) the game?

I guess people must be new to this idea also. 360 has been using it for a while now. All you need to play the game is the disk in the system to start the game. After that its played from the HDD. Honestly I wish Sony would do this because it cuts the load times on games and keeps will give the blu ray drive a longer life since it wont be running constantly.
