All PS4 Games Will Be Available as Downloads

Unfortunately for those of us with crappy internet, digital downloads of PS4 games will clock in at around 50 gigabytes.

Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has been debunking rumours left and right in the wake of Sony's big PlayStation 4 reveal event, and this time he has told The Guardian that all PS4 games will be available as digital downloads. He said that users downloading PS4 games might want to take advantage of the PS4's ability to download games and updates in standby mode, as they will clock in at a massive 50 gigabytes. For contrast, new release PC games downloaded via Steam average anywhere from 5-15 gigabytes. Those of you who still prefer to buy physical, worry not, for the PS4 will still focus on discs for the next few years. (PS4)

Will discs turn into VHS tapes?

Im all for "digital downloads" but it's a scary thought when you consider it could very well help do away with hard copies.

Now if only they will get the price right for digital content.

What i like about the new system is that the console can download the beginning part of the game and allow you to play it while it downloads the rest of it in the background.

My only question is, What would happen if you surpass what the console has downloaded while playing the game?
