A decade of discs left, Microsoft to launch next console first, Moore believes

EA’s Peter Moore reckons that Microsoft will once again be the first one to the market once the new console generation rolls around.

“[The industry is] at least a decade away from saying goodbye to a physical disc,” Moore said during a PLAY Conference panel while chatting about the next-gen and digital distribution. “The more important question is what does the next generation of console look like?” He didn’t have an answer, but the ex-Microsoft man did say it will probably be the new Xbox that will launch first.
