It probably IS an example of why Microsoft doing this is the only way this has a shot at being feasible though, you'd need someone like Google, Apple, or Facebook to try otherwise as next to no one else can compare with infrastructure, at least no company without a closer tie to gaming anyway, and it says something when those three are the closest past Microsoft.
Though I guess Google could do something that Sony/Nintendo could jump in on, cloud computing seems like an area they probably would invest in sometime.
