Sony Sees A Potential Future Without Physical Games

Posted on Tuesday, January 14 @ 11:19:37 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Fergal Gara, the marketing director of Sony Computer Entertainment's UK branch, recently spoke about the move to digital, saying that it is quite possible that the physical retail model of game delivery will become a thing of the past entirely.

Speaking to VG247, Gara explained:

More Vita games are still consumed through physical game cards than they are through digital, but things are increasingly moving the other way. Could be that in future physical games becomes the side we do without.

With Sony's recent announcement of its Gaikai-powered streaming service, PlayStation Now, it's clear the company is embracing a digital-centric future. Couple that with all of its efforts in making PlayStation Plus such a compelling service, and it's easy to see where Gara is coming from.

Would you like to see the games industry make the full leap to all digital? Is it important that physical games stick around in the future? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
