While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

Give it another 5 years when 1tb 2.5" SSDs are the same price as 120 or 250gb ones today and HDDs will effectively be a thing of the past.

Yeah that would be awesome and make sense, I'm just curious when load times in games and other apps will be instinct gone forever kaput etc. That is my dream to just start playing the game instantly.

The time is now. SSDs are ridiculously cheap now and prices continue to fall. I run a ssd or two in every system I have.

Hell even my father has bought a ssd for his PC and laptop.
