Sony Expects Game Discs To Last 10 More years

Sony has predicted that video games will continue to come on discs for another 10 years.

Talking to gaming website MCV, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai said that he expected game discs to survive another ten years before they are replaced with another form of console gaming delivery system.

According to Hirai, Sony offers its gaming services in areas that don't posses the technological infrastructure to deliver downloadable games directly to the consoles. He maintained that use of discs allowed the company to reach out to more customers.

“There’s always going to be requirement for a business of our size and scope to have a physical medium. To think everything will be downloaded in two years, three years or even ten years from now is taking it a little bit to the extreme,” Hirai said in a statement.

He added that although downloadable content for video game platforms was on a rise, it would be some time before it replaces game discs.
