As post #53 says, you'd need silly bandwidth to make anything playable. Compare this to popping in a disc and playing, well, I don't think people are going to be as eager to download everything as some people seem to think. Even on a broadband connection, downloading a full sized game (anyone try playing some of the betas of the latest mmorpgs???) takes a hell of a long time.
They ship games on DVDs for consoles already, and many pc games come on multiple cdroms. Think it out... this concept, whatever its merit, is too soon for its time because the connectivity is not there, and the speed is just not there.
Don't let me get started on the whole annoying copyright thing... this is entirely the wrong direction as far as that is concerned. No I/O except an internet hookup??? Forget it...
