Discs are so out. Virtual software is in. David Kushner from Wired Magazine has a good look at the downloading phenomenon. Microsoft has proved there's money to be made in the virtual. Xbox Live Arcade features everything from retro titles like Galaga to newer ones like Geometry Wars, all available for download. Likewise, Nintendo and Sony are banking on downloading. What does this mean for the future of gaming? Sony's Phil Harrison states:
I'd be amazed if the PlayStation 4 has a physical disc drive.
Uh, so, like, Phil, this doesn't bode well for Blu-ray.
