Correct. Cloud streaming is trash. Don't forget what happened to that joke of a platform OnLive. Ubisoft CEO is trying to make something reality by just repeating himself over and over but how many times will the press let him cry wolf about "this console gen being the last" before they realize he has no authority on such a subject... foolish...

So you choose OnLive as your example instead of Gaikai? OnLive didnt have the financial backing to improve things but Gaikai does thanks to Sony. The infrastructure is much different now than it was then and the idea is sound.

Gaikai is still pretty horrible. I don’t understand why anyone is even bothering with streaming when powerful hardware is more and more affordable every year. Every other industry is moving away from server side and letting the client side do most of the work, why can’t they see the trends?

This is Activision. The tech will be deemed ready when they find a way to charge $90+ for their annual Call of Duty release.
