I meant to post this Sunday...but ive been busy today and yesterday. This past weeks podcast I asked a question about, well, the future of video games, and how a friend of mine believes they will be full DLC in the coming years and no more hard copies of video games will exist. Suffice to say, the Podcast had some interesting opinions on the subject, and of course, I can't help but reply to them somewhat. While I do feel like most games will go to DLC, and DLC copies of games will exists, I have to admit that I find it hard to see hard copies of games, be it disks or cartridges or hard drives, or whatever else, will vanish in the future. Businesses like Gamefly, Gamestop, West Coast, etc. You know, the major retail stores for games and gaming, will probably not allow this, or at the very least put up some resistance, as peripherals, and retail sales of used copies of games are pretty much the bread and butter for most of these stores. Plus, there is a major issue of corruptible files. Without a hard copy to translate files from a disk to a reader, the risk of a DLC being corrupt or broken or w/e is erased because it can be deleted. If something goes wrong with the whole game, you might be stuck with a glitched game, unless they make downloads free after a while. Lastly, and the point that one of the guys said last week, hard drive space is still kind of low in terms of capacity to let that happen right now. Until there is a system that allows a few terrabytes, I feel like no external system that's not a PC will have the capacity for a console download game. Now I think that DLC games will continue in the future, but I also think that a lot of people will not use the DLC games as much as hard copy games. Not to say that it's not going to happen. Full games that are DLC titles will be in the future, but I don't feel like hard copy games will ever be eradicated, just like CD's are still being made today. So, your thoughts on this. Perhaps if we get enough responses we can start a nice little debate about things.
