The future of consoles is cross platform with phones, tablets and pc's.

xbox vs ps will never happen though. :(

sony is joining MS and others in the idea of a digital future.

If they can come to an agreement on such things like DD and cloud then i would hope they come to an agreement on cross platform competition.

I wonder what valve thinks of the whole cloud gaming thing. I bet they are looking into it at least to stay current with technology.

So far google fiber will be expanding next year & I am sure people will pay for it since it's a good deal!

Seems to me they're trying hold options for "in-case" scenarios that may appear next-gen. Sony completely overlooked the online phenomenon on the PS3 hence was severely disadvantaged initially from the 360's standpoint. It seems they're doing the opposite and trying to prepare for any possible directions the gaming industry might face with minimal losses.

The cloud has been talked about for 5 years now, this is a really slow take off.

I am still reluctant to be part of cloud gaming and cloud based things i prefer to have more physical medium of storage.

slow take off? the cloud has already landed. email, games, movies, etc.

Look the cloud is here. Blame your internet speed for any lag.
