The press release for GameTap from Turner makes it sound like GameSpy, except you can actually download games and play them vs. just having GameSpy facilitate collaboration. XBox Live does this pretty well for a v1. Sounds like old titles are included; I’m hoping some of the old skool classics from SNES make it. I know I’d pay to play Final Fantasy 3 again legally.
Another quote from AJC (username: cow | email: firstname.lastname@example.org | password: cowcow):
Turner Broadcasting enters the video game industry today, announcing a new broadband Web site called GameTap that gives users access to hundreds of titles – from classic gobbler Pac-Man to the frenetic skateboarder Tony Hawk.
