OnLive Chatter

The buzz surrounding the OnLive cloud gaming service announced at GDC continues. GamesIndustry.biz quotes Dave Perry about Gaikai, his planned rival service, saying: "Our solution is arguably better than anything OnLive has - they're never going to be able to beat us on this." This is an excerpt from an interview with Perry on the topic. Meanwhile, TechRadar UK reports Guy de Beer, CEO of competing cloud gaming company Playcast, says he believes OnLive is positioning itself for acquisition by a giant like Microsoft or Google. Finally, GamesIndustry quotes Crytek's Cevat Yerli saying when they investigated such a concept in 2005 they found that internet infrastructure would make it practical sometime between 2013 and 2015.
