Yes, however not everybody has internet connections like yours, my cable connection is 7Mb/s when I'm not sharing the pipe with others in my building, and the best DSL I can get is 1.5Mb/s. On top of that you've also got the transfer caps, Comcast has the most liberal cap that I know of at 250GB. At the moment i'm running around 100-125GB/month of transfer just with browsing, podcasts, and streaming media. If I had a download only system I'd need to carefully plan out when I wanted to play what game, as I'd need advance warning and enough drive space to store it, and I could only download 2-3 games per month with a 50GB game file (4-6 if you're calling it a 25GB download) while staying under the transfer cap, and it's even lower if you're on an ISP with more restrictive caps. And even the largest PS3 capacity believed to exist (250GB) could only store 10 games with no other media stored on the console, not a large library without the ability to back up games. I believe that we'll need to see larger storage capacity in consoles, faster 'net connections, and a removal of transfer caps before we see any sort of growth in download only consoles.
