    As a non-gamer my first instinct was to type "Oh Lord" and then I read the article.
    Very intersting.

    Truth be told it is pretty good but nothing compares to what the kids have at thier fingers (Xbox, Playstation etc).
    All have the same platform were as we try to make stuff like that run across differnet mediums/paths and different networks.

    Job security for me though.
