2. most people have a download limit(next gen games are going to be at least 15GB in size)
3. Internet services are becoming very expensive
4. Having something physical is better than having some data on a hard disk
5. console gaming could become a rich man's hobby, console gaming should not forget its roots. Its there as a cheap and direct way to play games with no hassle

I agree with every point you made, even discussing this idea is ridicilous.
