Dude - that is exactly why
streaming is the [b]future[/b ]
I wouldn't blame streaming - more bad management.
Even I, as an Onlive fan can't believe their horrendous running costs!

Its not like a Dreamcast, SNES etc where people can still play their games to this day, it a throw away disposable console, once its finished its life span, that's it, no more games.
I loved my original XBox. When I got my Wii and PS3 it stayed in the box. Don't play Game boy either. I have no clue whatever happened to my N64 (!)
I don't believe the majority of people actually care about looking backward - although I can understand collectors doing so.
When I get a next-gen console I doubt I'd use my PS3 as much more than a blu-ray player - unless it has one built in...
