Sometimes a company that's good in one line of business (LOB) can stretch/reinvent itself somewhere else. Far too often things like this end up a big failure and stock holders should slam the crap out of the board and executive management when it goes thud.
So what do you propose they do instead of poo-pooing something before you even know how it will work or what it will be?

They are looking for new sources of revenue and growth. they should buy something to grow rather than build-from-scratch.

Re: What's sad about this
said by hottboiinnc:If you're a family with kids, and your ISP is constantly spamming you in your email and actual mail service with flyers for $15 a month gaming service, and your kids can get the same games as the X-box 360 and PS3, are you going to pay $300 for a 360/PS3 plus $60 a game, + $10 a month for X-Box live service? Or pay $15 a month + possibly $10 - $20 a game? (if they even charge for the games) All I'm saying is I can see this getting way bigger than 2% if they market it right and guarantee the ability of multiplayer. But then again if they do get this off the ground I bet they consider it a "service" and as such don't count it towards the cap, or attempt to do that anyway.
Who said that 2% would use this service?
