    Might work.

    But my guess is that it's several years away from being viable competition to consoles.

    yeah I thought the same thing....thats pretty rediculous considering you would then still have to buy/rent games. 15/mo with unlimited games? Now we are talking competition

    I'm real curious how the game pricing will be. That could still make it not so bad? This is probably the future regardless, it's just a matter of now or later.

    Would this ever feasible for "online" play? unless they are hosting the severs on their end it seems like it would kill ping and not loading the game on your computer means you are adding an addition jump for the information.

    Game Server > Their Server > My Computer > Their Server > Game Server > Their Server > My Computer

    I don't know... just was thinking...
    Good lord are there no good games to play?
