Just need to find that fabled high speed internet connection and that uber server hardware that can handle a graphics card per session and the massive heat from this. Otherwise you need a dedicated super computer per user.

How large these game server data centers are going to be and how much$$$ it will cost. i read subscriptions to the service is going to be something like 50$ per month which I guess will pay for itself if this trend catches on.
