Meanwhile, G4techTV is playing the scab for professional sports. Apparently, labor disputes are preventing the start of the hockey season (news to me, tells you how interested I am in sports), and in order to prevent fans from missing out, G4 is running thier own season via computerized players. At this point, I think that everyone thinks this is a cute joke, and doesn't realize the fact that we may be looking at the first step in the death of professional sports.
Mind you, I said the _first_ step- but don't be surprised if entertainment vendors start selling CGI sporting events in the near future. Wait for the technology to improve. What I'm looking forward to is mixed teams of CGI and real world players, where the CGI is controlled by people out on the internet- perhaps even hundreds of fans at once, the AI choosing its manuver based on the inputs given and an algorithm to select the best one.
