i've been waiting for this to happen for 10 years. The idea is eventually games will be loaded this same way. In the future games will be huge! 20gb or more and this is the only solution for saving the customer from hours of loading time.

I am very glad that Blu Ray had the foresight to make their players DVD compatible!

If they didn't and Blu Rays dropped 50% immediately, then millions of DVDs will be littering the streets.
