Don't tell me. Its free until its popular and then a monthly fee?
Don't tell me:
a) no mods
b) no freedom
c) perhaps in the long term them making you pay a monthly subsciption
d) my net is crap... drops out twice a night. What do I do then?
e) They go bust and so do my games
f) I will have to have some sort of premium account to get better graphics or they will upgrade too slowly when things I want to play come out
g) My game specific hardware that I want to use will be incompatible with their hardware
h) No indy developers just like consoles. Only the big titles or those that will play corporate ball with onlive.
Am I just paranoid? Do I really want to go remote desktop for my games?
Reminds me of banks...
we will hold and manage your money for you at least until we GFC you all. Its much better in my mattress where thieves and fire can get at it
Its all about control people. The more we have as gamers the more our hobby will prosper. The more control companies have of our PCs the more we will do what they want. You don't own your PC you are depriving yourself of choice between gaming services and smacking the poor indy devs down to nothingness. Not to mention slowing hardware vendors to a crawl just like consoles do.
