Could the PS4 Go completely digital?

No system ever will be full digital. It'd be redundant. Why do you buy the console? To play games. Why not just on PC? Because different OS' and discs. If suddenly it went full digital it would be pointless, they'd be better off just streamlining everything to PC if they did that.

there will never be a digital only console ever.


There already are kid.


let me reword it, there will never be a digital only console from the 3 main companies, that crap PSPGo doesn't count.


There's also the Ouya.

And let me inform you. Just because you don't like the idea, doesn't mean it's not gona happen.

Seriously, I don't even see why one wouldn't eventually want an all digital console as long as the supporting technology is where it needs to be. If we have 14 terabyte SSD in the future, why not have it all digital? Optical disks are old technology that has lingered around for far too long.


That thing is a joke. I'm going to laugh in everybody's faces when they realize that it won't hold a candle to a real gaming console.

What's trilobite... I've heard of a TETRABITE but I guess G W Bush added another fake word to the dictionary. If consoles go all digital that's when people become really dumb and forget the term of owning things. I prefer retail for my hard earned money.

terabyte sorry wasn't thinking properly... Well it seems like the lot of you wouldn't go for it for one reason or another. Still I assumed since PS3 already allows you to buy day 1 games digitally maybe there were some who would consider this option more convenient.

Taking 20 minutes to go to the store to buy it. Vs 5 hour DL time that you either need to post your CC for or go to the SAME store to buy a card that gives you X amount of virtual dollars to buy the same game. Nothing about DD is convenient

People still have internet data caps and not everybody has access to broadband globally, that is why they will never become the only option.


Your logic is asinine. You're saying it's never going to happen based upon what you observe in the present, and not taking into account the technological progress made in the future. Brain kid, use it.

I hope I'd have that option for a smaller cheaper system

They may tinker with the idea of a much cheaper PS4mini model in the later years if they can get the content on the store first. I guess PSN+ could be a selling point with that too?

But I doubt they will
