Close to accurate ...
I largely agree - the one difference being that (sometimes) the publisher does need to maintain infrastructure to support online / multiplayer games ... so it isn't quite the same as a book, but the costs should easily be covered by the existing XBOXLive account charges ...
Re: Even those that can...
I think that is perhaps a little too simplistic; the simple truth is that different cloud models are best suited for different solutions.
For example, "your staff not being able to fix it" is countered by "we don't have the staff to do this task sufficiently to begin with (let alone the rest of the physical prerequisites)" so outsourcing it to someone who 'does it right' can make a lot of sense.
(Public, Private, Hybrid is one piece of the conversation, along with Internally vs. externally hosted.)
Not saying "the cloud" is an automatic panacea, there are concerns with any possible solution - just understand the risks, consider the benefits and make the best decision for you.
Close to accurate ...
... but not quite. At the very least, two of the attacks mentioned are already resolved.
(Type 0 RHs have been deprecated, and appropriate guidance developed ... and P2P links now recommend /127s, and most vendors have removed this vuln anyway).
Yes, IPv6 poses several different types of risks. However, you are much better off deploying IPv6 and managing it properly than trying to pretend it doesn't exist.
@Mage - Not an option for several reasons, and FWIW IPv6 is "properly designed" - and largely ready to deploy. Also, "v7" wouldn't be the next version ... (Oh, and "staying with IPv4" - without also doing IPv6 - won't really be an option for most of us for much longer ... )
@Anony - You can either take it on faith, or do the math, or ... ask? ... but yes, IPv6 has more than enough addresses for every company out there to get their public IPs and to not require NAT. (And there are some 'flavors' of NAT that do apply, in some scenarios, to IPv6 networks ...)
