This new generation brings together all the things we wanted in a video game console. These new systems now have large hard drives, are able to be updated via the internet and, starting with last generation, you can now download games to your console's hard drive (and start playing it before it is done downloading). The problem for most gamers now becomes do you buy a physical copy of the game or do you just download it. There are many pros and cons for each. But for those who love your games lining your shelves, I am sorry to say the days of the physical disc are numbered and this console generation will see that happen.
