What we do know, however, is that cloud gaming technologies such as OnLive do work; I'm a Comcast subscriber, and I've played through entire top-tier games on the service. What isn't clear, however, is whether or not a relatively uncomplicated casual game (Hearts, for example) would be streamed over a network, or downloaded directly to the box itself.
In any event, EA and Comcast appear to be readying the service for launch in the near future. How will this affect your cable bill? That's probably the biggest unanswered question of all.
