Games As A Service

So really who wants to title something GAAS?  I’m sure the SAAS people had enough fun with that acronym.  Then again a company called Valve created a service called Steam.  So I suppose GAAS fits oddly well in this system of tubes we call the internet.

Valve predicts big things for GAAS…  But so what?  Not only does it seem inevitable in the future, it seems that way now.  But there may be a bump in the road.  With cloud computing services from Amazon failing on Monday, it seems like there is still work to be done on this cloud idea.

I’ve talked about the minecraft business model before, and it looks like some folks have been putting that into the ‘GAAS’ category.  This is something that I had not previously considered and seems like a correct categorization to me.  But I’m a still little hesitant.  What do you think?  Is Minecraft a GAAS?
