Is this the future of peer review?

Came across an interesitng report of how an "author used blog comments to peer review a book".  Before dismissing this report, please consider that the book "examines the study of video games, and the blog in question is Grand Text Auto, an academic blog founded in 2003 that deals with ‘digital narrative, poetry, games and art.’".

Given some of the moves toward open access publishing for all government supported research projects, looks like the academic publishing world may be undergoing some change.
