Sooner than you think in my opinion.
I disagree. You'd need more disk space which couldn't be flash memory if you didn't use a disk drive which would be really expensive, or you'd have to use a disk drive which would eat up space. Also for a tablet, you need to include a screen, and keep size, weight and price to a reasonable level. With a console, they don't have the size, weight and screen to worry about.
Also, if you had to load games onto a tablet instead of popping in a disc on a console, that would be a major pain. I have like 3+ gigs just on updates to BF3 alone and that's not counting the actual game or any other games.
You do realize this is a digital age and most games will go digital. I'm talking big epic games. Pretty soon disk based games will be gone too if developers have their way. Everything you mentioned about display and space is an issue now but 2 years from now, no. You can only wear a one pair of shoes at a time. Android has come a long way in a short period of time. It will not be long from now.Originally Posted by brad92

The home Internet here in America is so fragmented that the download speeds to get a 20GB game isn't there. Unless you're cool with waiting longer than it would take to get it at a store.
Plus you have countries like Japan who primarily do mobile Internet over home based. All digital isn't going to work well with them.
It's coming, but not for a while.
