Sony: Expect PS4 to Still Have Optical Drive
Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai is ruling out a download-only future for the next-generationÂ PlayStation consoles. Speaking in an interview with MCV, Hirai said Sony’s business will always require a physical discs in one way or another, despite being the first one to release the download-only PSP Go.
â€œWe do business in parts of the world where network infrastructure isnâ€™t as robust as one would hope. Thereâ€™s always going to be requirement for a business of our size and scope to have a physical medium.”
This doesn’t mean that Sony will support physical discs all the way, well according to Hirai, it’s not happening anytime soon.
â€œTo 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.â€
