Sony were considering download only for next gen console

...but evidence points toward return of the Blu-ray drive

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Sony considered a move to download only game distribution for the PS4.


Citing "people familiar with the matter", the report claims Sony rejected the idea due to unreliable Internet connections around the world, pointing toward the return of the Blu-ray drive.

This follows reports yesterday that Sony may be revealing their plans to acquire either OnLive or Gaikai at E3 next week.
