Based on my experience with MS, this is what happens:

service is launched -> you pay for it -> it is discontinued "we are focusing on..."

Xbox Fitness, Groove Music, Windows Phone, Windows 10M... you name it.

While i agree with you (Zune) example (Continuum) the list goes on.
I think if they don't offer it as a service, they will fall behind.
I foresee as much as 50% of games being cloud based by 2025.
Atleast for people with low latency fiber connections.
I also see DaaS as something that goes along with this.
Which MS plan to be doing...

Does anybody know if this is where you play the games on Microsoft's computers and you view it on your own. Meaning what type of computer you have doesn't matter, more important is your internet speed.

Aaand.. you lose all the games. Games you could have just bought with the money you paid for the service.

That model just doesn't work for games, which are something you tend to come back to years after if the game is worth it. Unless you're in a habit of playing everything new that comes out and forgetting about it.

I agree with ACELAYA35. As a PC Gamer, I would rather play Madden and NHL on the PC. We haven't gotten anything close to what the consoles have in a decade.

It's simply ridiculous that we can play hundreds of titles that EA publishes on consoles on the PC, but not any of the in-house sports titles.

If EA thinks that the exclusivity of those titles is a system seller, they're sorely mistaken.

Shameful. Just shameful. : /
