Ya im really proud of sony. They aren't following anymore. They're leading.

gokuss1220022052d ago

@mika when were they following? (not rhetorical)

WeskerChildReborned2053d ago

Sony has certainly stepped up their game.

The only thing I want "enriched" is my Trey HDD with my golden oldies like Spyro and Crash Bandicoot.

Make it happen Sony!!

I'm not big on cloud gaming. I tried OnLive on my PC and it looked like ass compared to running the game natively.

I think it's a good supplement to native gaming, but running EVERYTHING through the cloud is a dumb idea in my opinion.

Possibly a entry level cheap Playstation console that runs everything via cloud with a subscription fee, but I personally want to keep things running on my own machine so I would rather shell out the money for a machine that just runs all the games itself.

It'd be nice to have it as an option, but I just hope that it won't be the only way to game on future consoles.

Onlive is awesome for electronics not powerful to run graphical intensive games. I know sometimes the internet is slow to stream games in hd without lag, but with time it will get better.

SkullBlade1692053d ago

Well it was the actual graphical quality that bugged me.

The forced low resolution and video compression made it look not so good compared to actually running it on my PC.

But yeah, that's not what it's designed for. :P

I would actually find OnLive pretty useful for streaming games to my laptop (well, if I had one...). I only have a desktop computer which I game on, which is why I don't find it very useful.

I can see why it would be useful for other users though.

even with my connection of 20mb/s i still get so much screen tearing

Not just the graphics, but also framerate.

clearelite2052d ago (Edited 2052d ago )

I agree. I would use it mostly for demos myself. I like to have accees to my digital property even if the internet is down etc. I see a lot of hype from online journalists about cloud this and that, almost as if they are deliberately trying to market it. Some of the same people who were saying handheld gaming was in the decline when the opposite is true. Handheld gaming is more popular than ever and the 3ds smashed the ds sales record one of the best selling electronic devices of all time.
