Read the article it's actually well written and good jounalism that gives you an interesting insight into what will be possible in the future unlike half the crap dualshockers puts out. I say this because i know many of you will read the word "cloud" and automatically write how its pr crap or bs before reading anything.

The real question is, does your internet connection have what it takes to truly achieve the potential of cloud gaming?

The answer for most people is no, not yet.

I forget where I read it, but at some point during all this cloud computing discussion I read that even at 50mbps, which is much faster than the average connection speed, the console is way better off just doing all the calculations itself.

At it's best my connection is much slower than that, but for the last few weeks my connection has been slower than normal for no apparent reason, and at certain times of day it gets even slower. I'd be really angry these days if my console relied on cloud computing.
