Rumors abound about the Next Gen Xbox's lack of disc drive.
Nope. definitely not. Next rumor please.
If its true , Microsoft deserve to fail massive day one . Who is going to download 50 GB games all the time ? . Not to mention all the download caps from your ISP !! .
Idk all my good games I download onto the hard drive now anyways for better peformance like what pc users do.
That's great but what size on average are your downloaded games at the moment ? . Come next gen with much bigger resolutions , bigger graphics etc who knows what size there going to be . I would be really surprised if either Microsoft or Sony put in any HDD bigger than 1TB . You would soon fill one of those .
True games get bigger, but as u said hard drives get bigger too (unless they give with expensive ssd's). But ... I dont need 100 games on the fly on my hard drive at any given point. This is how my current steam games are organized. I dont need all 55 on my hard drive at once. A half dozen, sure. The rest can stay in the cloud for when I get around to playing them for all I care. I have very fast interest, so the point of 3rd world countries still being on dail-up speeds, doesnt affect my situation. Furthermore, if your in one such area, you prolly cannot afford the next generation of systems which you know are gunna cost $400-500 (even more with some basic accessories).
Wow, a lot of rumors abound for this not to have a shred of truth. Could MS be going with a proprietary new format? Something along the lines of a slot card or something of the nature? The first rumor was MS had a plan to knock out used game sales. I'll have to wait and see to make a full decision but I am definitely not happy with any company trying their best to screw used games.
