    The jaguar had the best exclusives of all Alien VS predator, temptest 2000, white men can't jump and the best versions of wolfenstein and doom. Lets not forget those cool cards for the numerical pad on the controller.

    The biggest issue I have with streaming games is the input lag. They make fighting games completely unplayable and just about any game that requires precision, unplayable. There are thousands of games in everyone's back catalog that are 60fps and at some point require precision, especially the harder levels late in the game (super jump in DKC series is a prime example). Then we have data caps and so many problems with the internet and providers unwilling to update their infrastructures. And those without internet. Just a whole lot of problems in general. This is just some of the problems I'm even concerned about with PS Now.

    The moment we don't have discs anymore, pricing structure goes out the window and you'll never be able to pick up a cheap game used for 10.- The whole steam selling cheap games thing is just because they can't otherwise compete against ebay.

    More than any of the points made here, those streaming services should offer you a month of free trial like Netflix does. The best way for potential gamers to make them get the service, is to let them try it first with no charge, and make sure it'll play decently on the setting and connection they have. I do not know about others, but at least for me this would certainly be the case. As sexy as any of those streaming services could sound, I don't plan to give them a single penny until I can actually make sure latency wouldn't hamper my experience too much.

    That's a very good point. OnLive are currently offering something similar to that at the moment, where you can try games before you join the service proper. I'll pretend that's the reason it wasn't in the list and not because I hadn't thought of that point...

    Lol, okay, glad to know you agree at least ^^ Because seriously, what better way to convince people than that, specially when it's something that most will need to try to make sure it works for them?

    Agreed, Netflix's trials definitely gets people hooked.

    Nintendo should do something like this. They have a ridiculous back catalog of games across multiple systems; that's just their games I'm not even counting 3rd party stuff. Not sure if streaming is the way to go for N64 games but certainly some kind of subscription service with the option to buy. Can you imagine going through a Netflix like interface but instead of movies it's box covers spanning Nes - Gamecube and everything in between. 0_0

    Fringe had some excellent ideas on alternate realities, that can be the blueprint!

    We need to start a kickstarter which is about finding a way to take us to this alternate universe where Timesplitters 4 exists. It seems more probable than trying to get it here.
