THQ: Future Consoles Won't Use Discs

THQ has stated that they believe future generations of consoles will go away with traditional console/cartridge based mediums in favour of a cloud-based solution.

Farrell stated that it would make sense from both a development a publishing perspective, as digital distribution costs a lot less. "[there would be] no physical goods cost for game makers, no inventory, no markdowns, and all the money spent by the consumer would go to the developer or publisher," said Farrell at Cloud Gaming USA.

Farrell also said it would give publishers an easier way to interact with people as services would be able to always be on, they would always be connected.
