Check this out. It takes like 1 minute to sign up and DL the player. All you need is an email. http://www.onlive.com/playpack It's pretty cool. You get to play these games on the list for free and you also get to watch anyone else playing their games. I think the "playpack" games are sort of like "Standard Cable". You pay a subscription fee to play any of them. Then you have the "premium channels" like new releases "Assasins Creed", etc. That you pay for either a couple of days or lifetime.
