Looks interesting, bit sceptical tho, xbox live has issues sometimes and all that has to do is handle gamer inputs and movements and chat.. Ill believe it when I see it!!

Well I thought this was pretty revolutionary but what do I know...

And now im talking to myself on an internet forum... great.

I read about this too. Sounds interesting but will it ever work well or be practical? Also they are looking at a subscription service. How much would you be willing to pay eventually?

I've got to be honest, I wouldn't buy into this. I think it's a cool innovation, but I prefer the console setup I have now. I want my games to physically be there in my library, not stream them online to play them.

Is this the thing that proved the GC 'inbox magic' theory?

Yes it is! Another GC reader, v cool :)

Its always nice owning a system / pc and running it on your own living room, putting your rig to the test and what not. I just dont see this working on a technical level, just seems too far fetched to me. What if 10,000 people want to run crysis at the same time, have they got 5,000 mega rigs set up to run it for everyone? Or just one crazy super computer?

The mind boggles....:)

Well if it takes off, I can see Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony jumping onto the bandwagon too. Which should be a good thing and provide some competition surely.
