Sony to Acquire Gaikai

Sony Computer Entertainment announces they are acquiring Gaikai in a deal worth approximately USD $380 million, confirming rumors they were planning to purchase the cloud-gaming service co-founded by industry veteran Dave Perry. "By combining Gaikai's resources including its technological strength and engineering talent with SCE's extensive game platform knowledge and experience, SCE will provide users with unparalleled cloud entertainment experiences," said Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. "SCE will deliver a world-class cloud-streaming service that allows users to instantly enjoy a broad array of content ranging from immersive core games with rich graphics to casual content anytime, anywhere on a variety of internet-connected devices."

The bandwidth just isn't there yet for any type of game that requires twitch/split second timing. For casual games this is great, or even turn-based but anything else and it is not worth it...yet. The only other gripe I havew with Onlive is that the graphics take a big hit. That is necessary to even attempt to overcome the first issue but it's just not worth it. For the console crowd (which I am apart of) the graphics hit isn't as noticeable. But, for the PC crowd (which I am apart of) the downgrade is significant and noticeable. For demo's the tech rocks, though. I think this type of service is still at least 5 years away from being optimized to anything beyond casual/turn-based.

Instead of Sony/MS going after this tech I would really like them to put out a console where I can D/L all the games instead of having to buy hard copies, plus make whatever machine I am doing that on upgradeable...so...I want them to make the 720/ps4 basically a pc.
