Quote of the Day

"Gaikai as well as OnLive, they're pioneers in that [area]. But I also think that [current cloud gaming solutions] can be dangerous in a way, from a business perspective," Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told Gamasutra at E3. "...I have concerns about the way it's approached, but I think cloud gaming is the future, inevitably."

How could you ever own a streaming-only game? That development is impossible. Relying on the company to send you the data to play means never, ever owning it in any sense.

Yeah, I don't think he quite understands the concept of cloud gaming. You don't own or even possess games in such a system. Naturally, that means no mods either.

I understand why a lot of you don't want it now, but eventually it will be the norm.

Consumers will decide that, not big companies. You can build the biggest cloud in the world, but if no one wants to use it, you're fucked.

It could be 20, 50, 100 years from now, but the day when it becomes cheaper to do it that way rather than building your own system for the SAME EXACT EXPERIENCE, including mods, "ownership", etc., it just makes sense. The key is the "SAME EXACT EXPERIENCE." That's going to take quite a while, so I wouldn't worry about it anytime soon.

Or eventually not. Nobody knows what will happen in 20, 50 or 100 years. And looking back at old predictions of our present, boy, we all will be so wrong about nearly everything

I'll admit, the technology is pretty cool, but it's useless until these greedy ISPs get rid of the caps and actually upgrade their infrastructure. Even then it'll still likely have latency and picture quality issues it's currently plagued with.

Its not TEH FUTURE, Cervat. Thats just the usual marketing speak. It may be part of the future, an additional way to play games, to sell games, yes. But not a complete or even major replacement. Heck, i heard this "This is the future" talk so often (every new console cycle, 10 years ago when MMOs where teh new shit, now with all this Social Gaming bullcrap), i stopped listening ...
