Cloud Gaming: The Pros and Cons

MasonicGamer.com: You’ve probably already heard game developers telling you how great cloud gaming is and how it is going to be the future of gaming. But is it any good?

While game-makers and publishers enthuse about the prospect of cutting costs by removing the need for packaging and retail, gamers (much like myself) are rather more lukewarm to the prospect of cloud gaming.

why would you name your website "masonicgamer"?

OT: I think that cloud gaming should, at the moment, be for older and/or smaller games; such as psn games and ps1/2 classics. In addition, Sony could easily include video streaming as well; for movies, television shows, music videos, and "spectator's mode". Imagine if they allowed you to stream games and video for a low monthly fee...

I think it was pacher or someone from the invisible walls team at Gametrailers said something interesting about Gaikai being included with Sony tvs (which makes sense as in that part of Sony is really not doing so well also makes their TVs competitive with the new smart tvs if they include the mobile/small games). Then on their new console the system will be used for (to an extent) backward compatibility .
