Cool idea, but as this demonstrates, bandwidth just isn't there yet for most to take advantage of it. Not to mention the awkward controls on a tablet.

PSNow is in open beta, right? Can anyone tell me how that works?

I play Mario kart 64 and many ps1 emulators using my ps3 control pad. Pretty sure you will be able to with this too, eventually if not already.

Cool. They could implement the accelerometer into that game on tablets. Tilt forward to move in straight line.

Yeah lol. Tilt forward to move, tilt backwards to auto attack, tilt left/right for turning.... that's all you need lol!

It looks like it just baby steps. It's been said You'll need a really fast internet connection to reap the payoff. I would still get the steam version a lot more. at least with the steam version you get to keep it and be able to test it on other windows based devices.

I don't care for digital distribution of games.

streaming is a form of digital distribution and it is worse than the tradition download, in terms of feeling ownership.
