I don't see the benefit in streaming at all?

What are the positives? (these are pretty small +'s)

  • No need to download patches
  • HDD space
  • Endless library
  • Not buying individual games
Negatives

  • Lag
  • No internet no game
  • No chance for community modifications without local files
  • Yet another paid service, we have had enough of these subscription based models for games. (mmo's excluded)
  • Inevitable server issues
