Steam has much of that. Auto-patching, purchacing, friend lists, communities, voice-chat, demo downloads etc. They are pretty much making it all easily accessibly.

Remote control is possible too.

More than there is available today (emulators are quite unefficient) but PCs develop fast.

So basicly its all possible on pc. I guess the biggest difference is that that you need to build it up yourself. It doesnt all come in one box. But of course som people prefer it that way (and som dont).
