@raugutcon: That was exactly the same thought that I had as well. One day none of the past generation consoles that I have will work. What will become of the physical catalogue of games that I have for them? It would be nice to have them stored in the cloud or as technology gets better with massive storage, locally on my current gaming system. At least with a PC platform, you have access to all the games you've purchased at any given moment. And however good your PC becomes due to upgrades all those games are still playable at any time.
