Supposedly the Next generation consoles (Xbox2/PS3) are going to possibly deliver content via a broadband connection instead of CD/DVD. I wonder if they will use this: http://www.iblast.com Each station in the iBlast network is capable of sending at least 75 gigabytes of digital content per day. Most markets will have a minimum of two iBlast stations, each transmitting a total of 150 gigabytes or more per day-up to four stations or 300 gigabytes in some cities. To put this in perspective, 150 gigabytes equals roughly 6,000 movie trailers, or 60 DVDs, or 2,000 CDs available to each consumer, each day. iBlast can broadcast extensive libraries of digital content directly It does this along with HDTV programming. -M.
