*Bump*

I'm just wondering. Do they have a deal with game companies to run specialized version of games that were optimized for distributed computing? Or are they just running some special software layer that runs regular games in many "virtual cells"? Because... without going into programming details, such layer to make games run on a virtualized layout must be pretty hard to accomplish.

Lag + remote input delays.
