Gaikai Live announces that Gaikai is live, offering a cloud-based service that is now called a "Video Game Advertising Network" (thanks Big Download). There's a lengthy discussion of the measures they've taken to reduce latency on the service, and this outline of the games currently being offered:

You can try Mass Effect 2 if you just visit: (Just wait and if your connection quality to our Server is fast enough, one of several pop-up designs will appear.)
You can play Dead Space 2 here (after a short survey):
You can play Spore here: CLICK HERE
You can already play SIMS with Gaikai here:
You can already try Second Life here: (Just wait and if your connection quality to our Server is fast enough, a pop-up will appear.)
Our next phase is to start embedding Gaikai into gaming websites, so visitors can try the latest games. We already have run millions of connection tests, but the more the better.

More gamers means more mainstream which means less specialized. I don't think my old-school CRPG and PC FPS loving ass has much at all to gain from more moms and pops playing Farmville. If anything I have a lot to lose.

I still can't see the harm in letting facebook gamers have their fun. Their market is not going to crowd out our market because there is virtually no overlap. We wouldn't be caught dead playing Farmville, but they wouldn't be caught dead playing Civilization IV or Amnesia.
