Re: 6 disc changer in a console?

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?

 

Yup a disc changer would be handy, I think 6 is about right as I play usually around 4-5games in a given timeframe.

 

But it would have to be more then a disc changer to justify.

 

Look at all the stuff people do buy for their consoles that are one trick ponys.

 

-Coolers

-Stands

-Chargers

-USB hubs

 

PS3 has no IR port so

-USB dongles for universal remotes

 

How much does all this stuff cost total and how much space does it take up?

That is the parameters for a successful disc changer accessory.

 

Plus for PS4 add some nose thumbing "Plays CD's!!"    "Stream movies from your home network!!"  "HDMI recording"

 

 

So now we looking at a device around the size of the PS4 itself, match the style and have them clip together or something and you have a device about as big as a xbone but with bells and whistles no console has ever had.

 

But that device would only do everything, and I think Sony may be out of that business now?

Finally, the structure of my question is that you would have to disprove every possible outcome to be correct and I would just have to have one that would likely be beneficial. That's statistically in my favor by quite a bit.
