Hey, do you think gamefly should do what netflix does. Meaning allowing you to play your games that are in your gameq on your xbox360 as long as you have a 2 or higher game plan? What do you think if it, it would be easier to play games and not have to wait for low or very low waighting games like Far Cry 2.

No way this would ever happen. Too many licensing issues among other things. Games are much more expensive than movies and while their aren't as many of them, it simply couldn't be done. The gaming industry would lose way too much money. They already lose quite a bit of money to the rental/used games industry as it is.

considering you would have to download the whole game before playing

you can't simply stream a game like a movie...

I like the idea, but I think there would be too many issues. It would be sweet if I could play any game I wanted without leaving my house. I just don't think this will happen though.

There are too many technical difficulties to achieve this currently, as well as the licensing issues to deal with. And beyond that Gamefly would find a way to fuck it up.

Terrible idea. This isn't even possible on a technical level. You can't stream a game. You could fully download it, or you could technically stream the gameplay if it were played at their location and transmitted to you, but that would take an absurd internet connection.

It's a good idea on paper, but in reality it just wouldn't work. There are too many factors that you have not taken into account.

This will not happen anytime soon.

That will never happen ever. Only way would be if you paid per game, kinda like the arcade. Its not feasible, unless you want to help them boost hard drive sales as well.
