Yes Ana, that's the drawback right now, and until they add a lot more games and make it available to everyone, it's going to be slow going.

It's also going to require a different way of thinking.

Sreamed games will be played and not owned. (Not that they are really owned now. Read the EULA.) You will experience them without a copy of their code residing on your device of choice.

Once you're through playing and you close the stream, there will be no trace of the game on your device. Just the opportunity to go back later and pick up where you left off.

Games will become something to experience rather than something to possess.

Interesting times.

Thank you.

This is a subject I've been thinking about for some time.

We're living through a period wherein physical media are becoming less and less important. It's the connection that matters.

Hard to be a hoarder when the code is in the cloud.

I can see many downsides though at the same time.


Just remember, the $7.99 is on top of the $6.99 Club membership. That's $14.98 a month, more than twice for a game at Club member prices.


If something gets your goat, it just proves you have a goat to get.

A new game every WEEK?? - that would not work for addicts like me.

And for sure BFG would not make so much money out of me with this new scheme, but it'a all academic for me anyway, being in the U.K.

I can finally access it. I see that there is a new games released every few days but they are all games that have been available before. If you aren't a regular player already it's great because they would be new to you.

Oh, I didn't enroll, I never even use my credits I get in the game Club. The only games I generally have time to play are the ones I do guides for.

I was unable to view the game choices or any pages on it before today, At least now I can see what the offerings are. It looks very nice for someone that games on multiple platforms. I am sure it will have a large audience soon with the number of mobile gamers.
