that PS4 may use optical storage discs like the Blu-ray discs the PlayStation 3 currently utilizes.
To quote from the interview, roughly translated: "Whether Shuhei Yoshida believes that the technology of digital distribution even when stationary consoles like the PlayStation 3 or a future 'PlayStation 4 prevails, "we wanted to know about him:" I think that digital content easier to portable devices like the PSP or the iPod fits.
It's faster, easier and more convenient than a CD, and the volumes of data keep both in music and play in bounds, "replies the Senior Vice President of Product Development at SCEA in discussion with video games area.
For home consoles, where the game files 5 to 30 gigabytes in size, was a download, however no longer feasible. Disc-based media would play on the console market is a part.
"Game developers now have to use the entire capacity of a Blu-ray Disc. But we supplement the offer with smaller titles from the PlayStation Store, but the big blockbuster games will continue to appear on media," it is safe to Yoshida."
