IMO a very good example would be torrent trackers, that is what I would personally base this on most likely. You could track individual game sessions similar to individual torrents and clients as clients. Plus there's lots of opensource stuff out there to get you started.

Well you can go P2P either way. P2P is basically a way to offload the bulk of your bandwidth needs to the users. They each act as 'mini-servers'. When you have a central server(s) in a P2P environment you usually just want it to help set up connections between peers instead of actually hosting the game server. If you're able, you may want to build the service so that core parts of the game server are on your rented/owned server.

comment Why do console games require a button press before showing the main menu?
I always thought it used to be there so we could enter cheat codes and we just kept it =P
