I dont think this online gaming idea is going to pan out. Having to totally rely on an outside source is not something gamers are a big fan of. Think of how often they will have to shut down servers for maintenance and repairs. It could be like the MMO's where they are down for a couple hours that turn into 1-3 days.
Connectivity is also going to be a huge problem, I run 6.0Mbps and at times my internet still acts like total crap. It still has problems with what I do now so I dont know how I would handle playing a game online and for it to crap out. An what happens if you cant pay the bill for either a month lol.
I need to find some old emulated games, J.B, LINK ME!!!! lol
