I think the biggest issue would be security, after all like onlive, the remote server is running the game, you're just streaming it, which means you'd have to enter your log in information into their systems, which blizzard might discourage for the simple fact that they can't guarantee security on someone else's service.honestly i'm not too thrilled about this technology, i'm not big on middleware of any kind, I even eliminate retail when I can, I just hope games continue to allow us to install the game ourselves, even if these services take off. it'll be pretty tough to mod, and even in wow's case, how will addons work? will the server you stream from have only the most popular ones installed? what about people who make custom addons? will they have to submit their addon to the company?people get so wrapped up in the idea and don't seem to think much about the ramifications
