If cloud gaming takes off AND becomes prevalent, it will put gamers at the mercy of cloud service providers. Internet issue? Go take a hike, dude. You ain't gaming till the network's fixed. Also, since there is no downloadable game, you can forget about being able to play the game you loved 20-30 years ago on a cloud service since there won't be any ROM/disc image and hence no emulator to relive your childhood memories. Hopefully, this romance between the cloud and gaming will be short lived as Steam would have introduced it years ago if the idea held water.
