I love it when people start an argument with epic fail......
I think that OnLive is the future, in several years services just like this one will be the dominant method of geting games.
Maybe in some countries, where their telecommunications networks are striving for perfection (South Korea?). For others, anything like this is a long way off being viable for a great number of people, including myself.
Personally, I'm more skepitical about being required to stream HD video constantly in order to play my games then I am of being reliant upon Stardock to do so.
In theory, freeing players from the need to constantly upgrade their systems, and from having to worry about compatiability issues would be perfect for PC gaming, but I don't see it being a viable mainstream alternative for quite a few years still..
In any case, this would be fine provided it is optional. If I want to download/buy my games at retail, and play them the old fashioned way, I'll be happy as long as that remains possible. And provided gamers aren't actually forced to play their games this way, it could begin being used much sooner.
