Nope...

Maybe next, next gen but not next gen coming

When the PS4/Xbox 720/Wii U all come out and establish themselfs on the market Cloud related things like OnLive will slowly die out.

Fact is people like having a game they can hold in their hands...

While true, I think cloud gaming IS the next gen of gaming. Whether we like it or not, if companies don't have to spend more money on packaging or discs, they won't.

and in the end we won't have to spend money on expensive hardware. I always say Cloud Gaming is the future, though I usually get Dislikes about this. It's true. Just because you don't like the idea it's here to stay

Im in cloud gaming as long a i retain the rights to play for the game purchased even if my subscripcion to the service runs out, if not, then dont bother cos i wont be gaming in the future.

Titanz2466d ago

It's a lot more convenient that way.

The Xbox 360 allow's cloud saves now? That's news to me.

@Cemelc

Onlive already does what you just said. They don't have a subscription fee so your service won't run out and you'll keep your games.

@Titanz

Ps3 and Xbox360 both do cloud saves. It's very convenient.

nope

its next to worthless

Hufandpuf2466d ago

Say that the next time your save gets corrupted.

Matrix2k2466d ago (Edited 2466d ago )

yeah and thats why I have backup saves. But a save getting corrupted is rare. Very very very rare

read the article they are talking about things like onlive.

Onlive as of now is a failure.

You will never be able to get someone who owns systems and buys games to use it

Hufandpuf2466d ago

"yeah and thats why I have backup saves."

Do you play mobile games? You cannot make back-up saves. So imagine playing Infinity Blade or many of the countless RPG games on the mobile platforms and your save gets deleted or corrupted. You're screwed because you cannot get them back. The cloud saves all of that grief and hassle.

Just because you don't game on mobile platforms doesn't mean you're the only one in the world and everyone agrees with you.

hiredhelp2466d ago

Currupt saves arnt that rare, ive had dodgy saves on ps3 not many but ive had them. Just like the ps2.
Cloud helps But i do agree with both of you, onlive is BEEP, but i think it may one day happen. But everyone need superfast broadband and they need huge super servers.

SkullBlade1692466d ago

If you can't back up saves on a mobile then its a fault of the mobile's software. Backing up files is a very simple task which should be handled by most Operating Systems. If it doesn't let you back up a save file then there is a fail of the platform itself.

probably not

JBSleek2466d ago

Cloud gaming is here to stay.

The casual market will eat it up because you can have inexpensive hardware and for only ten bucks you play on any platform of choice.

Those who deny these odds are stuck in their own ideologies of hardcore gaming means you need a disk.

SKUD2466d ago

With pending issues regarding the network it would be VERY unwise to rely that much on it. The network can and will go down again. That's just how it goes and no one can stop it. Have an offline plan.
