AFAIK PSN, X-Box Live Arcade and Wii-ware have all been doing quite well (otherwise they would have tanked) so I think this article is a bit off base. Now if they're talking about a complete overhaul where all games become digital, they might be close. However, it doesn't sound as though that's what they mean. 25% of customers having access to the technology?
What's that, a console and the internet? Last I checked, just about everybody I know that has an X-Box or PS3 has the internet. Most people nowadays have internet access and if you can afford either of those consoles you generally (as a rule of thumb anyway) can afford internet. The only deciding factor might be 360 users who don't have a hard drive yet, but at some point those will be ubiquitous in consoles as well (although nintendo might wait another decade of course).
