    I don't like cloud saved games either, but on the other hand it don't need a 'physical' copy as it only collects dust and I have to get up and change the disk to play another game.
    Downloadable games which are stored on a, let's say, 5 to 10 Tb SSD (We are talking 2022) without the need of a repetitive online certification would do it for me. Certify it once when you start it the first time and that's it. After that you should only need power to play it, not necessarily a continuous internet connection.

    Mostly it does work like that too on the PS4, but some games can't be started without a working connection, if I remember correctly. NFS 2015 being one of them.

    Most Steam games can be played offline, the only downside is that you don't get achievements and/or trading cards, but if you don't care about those things you can unplug the modem and play offline just fine.
    If SMS's console follow a similar model, has good game prices and has reliable download speeds I'd imagine a lot of people wouldn't mind buying digital games instead of physical ones.

    hmm.. in three years time we really should be getting 64 cores and 128 threads at 4GHz on 5nm process with a sensible power requirement, plus DDR5x or 6 memory... should be enough for the player + 63 AI running a full SETA tyre model.. anyone else up for that

    (pipe dream. and would probably be too expensive.. but, oh boy, that would definitely count as a Mad box!)

    Even with all these bells and whistles ( minus the 5nm process - a refined 7nm is more likely) you could not run 63 ai on full seta. I'd dare to say 15 at best.

    if the substandard calculator that makes up the PS4/Xbox, can manage to make use of four cores to do the Player Physics (just) then the additional IPC and twice the speed could just about work

    In theory, maybe. But I don't think it will scale that good and in 2022/3 we might have something even better than seta for the player and most of the environmental stuff will be ramped up too. What might be something that the 15 nearest cars to you run full seta, the more distant ones drop to some dumbed down version of that until they get in closer proximity.

    But my bs blubber aside, what about the gpu? I think raytracing and general performance beyond current 2080ti level should be mandatory.
