    Wow. Sounds like the kind of thing I'd love to be a part of.

    Games could accept VoIP calls, then play it live (or slightly delayed) as in-game talk radio (in multiplayer or even single player games). Ditto, for submitted video or picture content (sourced from webcams or home videos). -- they could be ingame TV or content, or even textures for characters or NPCs.

    Hmmm.... maybe Internet radio stations being threatended by RIAA royalties have a new niche for ... ingame radio stations, paid for by gamer subscriptions. Since the multiplayers games companies already charge the users credit card, they could be the intermediary for digital content.

    Also, it could work the other way around. Video games that streamed content from my digital TV/radio tuner or digital music collection, as in-game content (e.g., TV or music stations)

    "I tried everything to lose weight. Well, except eating less and exercising."

    The Glory Hole Amusement Park for kids is another winner.

    Of course, I have to say that the "fake" music on the stations in GTA3 is FAR superior to the newer scheme of using real pop songs from the era. Whoever came up with the music for GTA3 should be given 5 or 6 radio stations in each game, it was the most impressive thing they've released imho.

Matter cannot be created or destroyed, nor can it be returned without a receipt.
