    I don't get why this matters...


    As long as I can play some games, I don't care about the Cloud.

    And title and sub. They're becoming progressively worse.

    People don't have the bandwidth to waste on things like onlive.

    The cloud is bad for gamers as they will have to pay higher prices for games. They won't go on sale or anything.

    Also, it's not as good as he makes it sound. He doesn't have a good understanding of computers.

    Somebody boot out this blasphemer.

    Onlive also won't catch on since both westerner and easterner alike like the excitement of new consoles and still love to own them, it's a status system of both regions' Gen Y set. Plus, who has the bandwidth to deal with this even Japan has some restrictions.

    Maybe in 10 years time, maybe. Most of the world just doesn't have the internet speed to stream games (myself included). This analyst clearly thinks that America is the be-all and end-all of vidyadom.

    "YEAH! I'M WINNING!!!"


    -Buffering...-


    GAME OVER


    -cry-



    Also, wouldn't it be harder to regulate online gameplay?
    Not only would piracy be through the roof, but hackers would be fucking everywhere.
    Of course this is assuming it's not to laggy to notice.

    Personally I don't like the idea of paying for something and never actually having a copy of it.

    Unless the U.S. companies start upgrading the internet services they provide Onlive is going to be laggy and pretty crappy. Seriously U.S. has slow internet speeds compared to other countries, on top of that nobody wants to pay a monthly fee and still pay for the game and then after all that once u stop the service u lose the games as well. Also why is this dumbass always on the news section.... Its like your listening to a 4 year old kid talk nonsense all the time.( Sorry i offended four year olds)

    I opposed the idea of OnLive. It is just not realistic for gamers at this point.

    But I do agree that PS3 and Xbox 360 can still stay alive for a long while before the next generation.

    Pachter really needs to gtfo. Aside from simply preferring a nice package and physical media, there's also the fact I don't like this idea because gaming in Canada would completely die if everything went to streaming. 90% or more of ISP plans have very low bandwidth limits. It's a disgrace to the country, but it's not going to change for some time.

    I use onlive and my connection is good enough to play it wifi and notice next to no lag. So it all depends on the type of connection you have. I just luck out to have a $$$ hogging fast enough connection to be able to use it. But cloud gaming is still in its infancy stage and it won't catch on well until better broadband is available to more and more people, IMO.

    i dont see how future gen consoles would benefit from this, onlive is only beneficial for running games like crysis on wifi supported handhelds like iphone or openpandora or other smart phones
