Following the revelation of the OnLive service, GameDaily has a conversation with Acclaim's Dave Perry, who describes ambitions for Gaikai, a similar cloud computing-based service, admitting the unveiling of OnLive has "forced his hand" into revealing these plans. The description is of a very similar service to run games on the server end, allowing high-end gaming on lower-spec systems, and one of the advantages of such a system he stresses is its ability to curtail the impact of those darned used-game sales. A timeframe for launch is not offered, but Dave says they already have World of Warcraft and EVE Online running, interestingly specifying MMOGs, a segment that doesn't have much in the way of a used-game market.
