So does Mac OS X Lion (exclusively, more so).
But I guess the trend the OP was raising was this
distribution method shifting for console games. As many have
already mentioned, since the majority of consoles are in the
home, the last mile to the home router is likely the choke
point in most cases.
For consoles that will be sold outside "major" areas, one
might not be able to get CDN coverage, so not only do they
have to suffer with small last mile pipes, they also need to
contend with higher latency to get to the nearest CDN (which
may not be so close by).
Then, of course, there are those who might not be in a
position to get any kind of Internet access to their
consoles. This isn't such a terrible thing if games are
released both on digital and hard copies, but it's quite
unlikely maintenance updates for the game might be available
