EBWorld to launch streaming rental service

Electronics Boutique have announced that their online store will be launching a new rental service on June 1st which will allow players with broadband connections to rent games by streaming them from the company "without requiring downloading or installation". Exactly how this is all going to work is rather vague at the moment, and there is also no word yet on which games will be included in the system, although Electronics Boutique are planning to "acquire the streaming rights from leading publishers to popular and newly-released game titles" according to the press release. No doubt everything will become clear over the next couple of months.
