Will cloud-based gaming kill off gaming PCs? We ask Gaikai’s David Perry

"David Perry is a cloud-based gaming evangelist, as well as the man behind MDK, Earthworm Jim and Enter the Matrix. Sony are big fans too; they just bought his cloud-based gaming service, Gaikai, for a $380 million.

"Gaikai lets you stream games via your browser which are actually running on remote PCs elsewhere in the world. As long as your device can handle basic video, and your connection is good enough, you can play high-end games on extremely modest PCs, consoles, or even standalone TVs.

"But what does this mean for PC gamers? We talked to David at Develop and asked him whether the days of neon-lit monster rigs are over," writes PC Gamer. (David Perry, Gaikai, NVIDIA, PC)

offline gaming and media will probably never die.. wonder why? not the entire world has access to the internet nor the speed required to have a pleasant experience from it. think about the situation of all the countries in the world!

I dont see that happening. unless somehow we eventually break the laws of physics latency will always be a factor in cloud gaming. then you have to compete with clearer image quality of the desktop. I mean, the image quality thing can be fixed as bandwiths improve, but getting ping consistently and reliably lower something that not everyone can have. In some aread the lowest ping you can get is 200ms, that on a cloud service might as well be playing at 20fps.

It cant kill off all physical hardware because alot of ppl dont have internet or wont pay a service fee to play games.. Physical distribution could take a big hit though.. I want gaikai for my 3rd party games.. 1st party i want to own the discs
