Nintendo Keeping An Eye On Cloud Gaming

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has told investors that the company is keeping a close eye on the advancements in cloud gaming. Iwata said they aren’t prepared to embrace it at this precise moment in time due to the responsiveness and the unavoidable network latency. Here’s what Satoru Iwata told investors.

“Of course, we constantly pay attention to the advances and changes in cloud gaming technology and Internet infrastructure. On the other hand, I don’t think that our games, particularly the types that have strict requirements in terms of real-time responsiveness, can offer high-quality services using cloud gaming technology because of unavoidable network latency.” (3DS, Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, Wii U)

While what they say is true having the option for cloud gaming is still great because some can enjoy that feature. Also there's more than playing games with the cloud like spectating etc.
