Op Ed

IndustryGamers - OnLive is 'Doomed,' says Alex St. John.
Take the much anticipated launch of OnLive for example. Itís a great sounding idea Ė streaming games that require no installation, can be played anywhere, and are stored in the cloud with support for spectating! Sounds great; itís too bad that itís doomed. Is anybody out there aware that Valve is doing a 9-figure downloadable gaming business for premium titles already? Although Valve is so wildly profitable that they have little need to hype the company to investors, I suspect that Gabe Newell is smiling to himself and thinking the same thing I am. This is going to be a fun show. Does anybody remember how many failed companies there are who have had the same idea and perfectly workable technology solutions for delivering premium games over the Internet?

Has anyone here ever used remote desktop across the net? Now add in 3d graphics and games requiring (or possibly not) less than a 100 msec response time ... yeah, this is going to work out well.
