i really hope this works - once the net is fast enough its going to be great
-no more installing shit, drm etc
-no more incompatible hardware
-console games on my pc or laptop
-no more upgrading my pc every 5 minutes
there are so many advantages to this IF it works well
No more even the illusion of owning products.
No more reasonable expectations of playing a game five years from now.
No more ability to tweak or mod a game.
No more playing single player games offline, or while downloading something.
There are so many DISadvantages to this I hope it crashes and burns so spectacularly as to discourage anyone from ever pursuing it again.
You know those game publishers that are enthusiastic for ultra-draconian DRM, thought up install limits, are against game resale, and basically look at customers as an inconvenience at any point where they aren't being payed by them? This service is a wet dream of theirs.
