Harrison: Next generation will never use physical media
Speaking to Edge at Atari Live in London this week, company boss Phil Harrison has predicted that the upcoming generation will never use a disc. For anything.
“There’s a generation of kids being born today and probably already alive who I’m pretty confident will never buy a physical media product,” he said.
“They will never buy a DVD, they will never buy a CD, and they will never buy a game in a box.”
Harrison’s boss, David Gardner, has already said that 90 percent of Atari’s products will be online “within five years”.
