6 disc changer in a console?

10 replies 226 views Edited Jan 8, 2014
I see people on here say that one advantage of digital is that they don't have to change discs. It got me thinking, would it be possible to implement a 6 disc changer like cars used to have into a console?

Nope. Most people would not be willing to pay extra for a disc changer on a console, so they could save a few seconds of time from getting off the couch and putting in a different game. A 6 disc changer in a console would just be 6 more things that could go wrong with the console.

 

bad idea

Think how big that console would be if it could hold 6 disc inside it

I use to think that it would be nice to have a changer even if it's not something I could see being made.

If they could, and actually did, it would probably be in a home entertainment package. You know, PlayStation, speakers, sub, disc changer, etc. Will it be made? Doubtful. Even if there was a market large enough to make a profit (which there could be) there are probably other projects that would provide better returns.

I think this is a great idea.  If they could make it as a "add on" (similar to the HD-DVD player for the 360) I would purchase it.

IMO consoles don't need more mechanical parts to fail.
