An MMO through cloud gaming? Let alone one revolving around player timed actions in drawn out combat scenarios? You better have a really good ISP and upload rate to boot.

Depends , even as an action oriented game , Tera is still a mmo , those are usually built with rather high lag input and ping tolerances in mind .

Must admit I'll have to give this one a go, the prospect of being able to access your account quickly from (I'm assuming) any internet based device is epic, especially if you can have this service along side your main install of the game, great if you have an underpowered laptop and you need to get your MMO action on away from home.

True, but players with the lowest latency (both client and server-side) tend to fair much better in action-oriented scenarios where timing is a factor. That doesn't mean it's not possible, but I question one's ability to remain mobile and reactive enough with their warrior to solo bosses like those on non-cloud gaming set-ups.

Tell that to the bams who have skilled me due to a split second attack I never saw coming.

Yeah, but the prospect is staggering!

Bare in mind if this game is popular in eastern lands, their average broandband speeds make ours look like its 1995 all over again!

Gaikai best bring that ps2 compatible thing to PS3!

NEED IT BADLY

I'm a big fan (but not a big user) of GaiKai and OnLive sure it ain't perfect, but the options it enables are sweet.

Would be a great addition to the PS3s never ending list of features
ENDERSPROJECT  +   878d ago
yeah,

Would be awesome i have got piles and piles of PS2 games and i can not play them because i dont have a PS2 any more lol

so need this app.
