Wow, this could either change everything, or it could change nothing. The scope of this project is so vast that it is difficult to anticipate all the repercussions. It messes with the console business. It messes with the game manufacturers and producers, and it messes with computer hardware business. It, well, could change everything about the gaming business. Is it like the electric car which was killed by those who business it sought to disrupt? The electric car could have changed everything about the way we travel by severely reducing the petroleum requirements. But auto manufacturers who would lose business and oil companies who would lose a large part of their market largely had the car destroyed, most famously in Arizona. Is this so different? The electric car had some serious opponents. Microsoft? Sony? Those are some big boys whose capabilities extend much further than the game industry. M$ could have this crushed if they so choose. I'm certain somebody far smarter than I is analyzing this for the big three right now. One must also remember the economic impact of reduced spending on the economy. Of course, this could change nothing. Even if this weren't swatted by some company not interested in losing out on the very pricey investment of making it into the console game (I'm looking at you MS), every project that is launched has a million things that could go wrong and this is no different. While it sounds smashing, few things are actually better than sliced bread, as this project claims to be. I feel ambivalent. It looks awesome. It sounds awesome. It tastes awesome (I assume). But the impact it could have is so vast, I'm not certain that it is good for the gaming industry. Time will tell.
