Ask yourself this. If you were to design a next gen console from scratch, what would it be like?
When you ask yourself this question it’s kind of funny to compare it to the real next gen consoles. The most glaring out of date feature is DVD/bluray drives.
It seems like you’d look at the iPhone, iPad, steam, android and it would be obvious that physical media is not next gen. The only reason you would continue to sell games like this would be because you are already selling games this way and are scared to rock the boat. We want revolution, not evolution.
This general attitude is ultimately why the next gen consoles are going to be out of date before they’re even released. It’s not hard to trump this, and either Steam or Apple will be the people that do it.
