happierr writes "The gaming industry has been struggling in the last few months and it is about to struggle even more when OnLive and Gaikai launch later this year. They both are a step in the right direction to counter piracy and provide easily accessible gaming to people with low end PCs.

These two services might do for PC gaming what the Wii did for casual gaming; greatly expand the market and get people to play games that ordinarily would not. The services are a real threat for the Big Three videogame companies (Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo). How can they combat this new revolutionary service? There are a few steps that the Big Three are taking combat the New Two."
