    Maybe these games on demand services are the future ...

    But, with ISPs throttling most users it can't possibly succeed at this time, can it?

    This may not work now, but it certainly will eventually with net speeds and hardware requirements both increasing. Because the amount of bandwidth that the services require won't be increasing that much, unless they up the resolution, this certainly should become practical even if it isn't already.

    I think Gaikai looks like the most feasible cloud gaming solution so far.
