I saw this article on engadget here and was interested straight away.
There is a new service on the way where you can play the hottest games instantly through your broadband connection on your PC or MAC and even on your TV (if you buy their Micro console).
you start the game on your PC and it runs in your browser. Supposedly it can run on entry level computers and doesn’t require super expensive hardware.
Of course this will only be available in the US when it finally gets launched but maybe it will come to Oz as well.
go to the site and watch the video – its pretty cool.
