Which is odd.
On top of that cloud gaming and a bigger shift to online games means years long replay value is out the window.
I still play a few PS1/PS2 games every now and again. With the next gen most the gameplay is on line and for a lot of games the main game itself is just a long tutorial and practice session for online.
Which means in 2 or 3 years after the next thing comes out and traffic drops that game is worthless...
