You're already dependant on servers and licences. The fact of the matter is, any console maker can stop you from playing a game you bought right now if they really wanted to, regardless of whether it's a digital copy or a hard copy.
nope they cant, i played all my PS4 games offiline
Over 40% of you would stop playing modern games, if there is no retail version? Yeah, right!
A lot of you would cave in, when the new game of your favorite series gets release. Most of the rest would cave in, when 3 - 5 new games of your favorite series are only available as digital versions.
i think they mabye wouldnt quite but they would be cheap as f@ck and piracy would also increase
Being digital only is the last of the problems to bother me. In fact, I expect to embrace the digital only future soon.
its allready a digital future. There is not one game being released only Physicley like it used to be. Even during the PS360 era games like MGS 4 were not avaible digitaly until last year.
Why you want Physical medium to die off ?
