Imagine a world without Wiis, Xboxes and Playstations and their clutter all over your den. Yes, this is a good thing. Give it a read.

Awesome, but I just won't believe I can stream games without massive lag. It's impossible with our current technology. "Totally playable" is not what i want. I want perfection.

Rehydro, I'm with you. All the lag on online gaming kills the idea. Until they find a way to manage volume and clean up the gameplay.... NO DEAL

Latency be an unavoidable and huge issue; there's a big difference between the small packets normally required for online gaming and a hi-def video stream.  I also don't see how the provider can effectively scale with demand, since it takes 1 PC to render 1 instance of a high end game.  In contrast, 1 traditional gaming server can host hundreds of gamers, because it's not tasked with rendering the game.  Infact, a lot of gaming servers are Linux boxes with nothing more than a power and ethernet cable connected to them.

 

If this company is or goes public, I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole.
