so it looks like the future is this...

I read it. One is streaming the game (Sony). The other is off-loading/processing data on a server (MS). I don't have a problem with Cloud Computing or Cloud Gaming (streaming). They have been a thing for years now. The problem comes from people thinking Cloud Computing is going to increase the power of set console specifications.
Gaming is and has been slowly moving towards Digital Distribution (Cloud). Nothing new here.
People need to seriously stop trying to spin this into an argument to continue the console war bs. Of course, it would be coming from people who also want to complain about the state of the board. Hypocritical back and forth nonsense.

That's not exactly what I took the article to say...
...No what people were saying is splitting the processing between console and the cloud is pointless its either one or the other...

So how would streaming games handle multiplayer like bf4? Can the cloud render everything on screen as well as keep track of all players in real time?
If ms can't offload real time how can sony?
Also, you will need a constant strong Internet signal (always online), and you wouldn't own the games be able to trade or share...am I missing the part where this is cool for Sony but bad for MS to do?
#1 at absolutely nothing!

Most of the arguments about always online and the like was that it was the first time a console had attempted to do this for physical media. They didn't like that. Those kinds of restrictions and DRM has been for digital media for quite some time and people have accepted that. Physical media? Not so much.
holy crap! what's going to happen now if microsoft shuts down their xbox division and sony relies on cloud services??? time to move to nintendo!

Please. We're still not sure how this fight over privatizing the internet will go. Banking on cloud services, streaming and all digital gaming will be the worst mistake ever made if those jackasses literally win the internets. Anyway, the risk is too high. Consoles are too big a business to just fall off, especially since they're not just gaming machines anymore.
Edit: forgot to mention the number of people who still have data caps. A streaming service replacing consoles will never work. Data capped people, people with slow internet and people with no internet all together is a huge chunk of the market. Say goodbye to all that revenue. If the net is privatized and data charges go through the roof, no one will be gaming if streaming is all we have.

Streaming games? I do not know. My internet connection could handle it I guess. But I really dislike relying on my ISP so much. Waiting for them to send me a new modem right now.
But...but the Cloud can do gaming! Because Microsoft said so! Xbox One will then no longer produce 792p and 900p games. It shall now be the norm of 2376p or 2700p because it's 3 times the power! It's a shame it will be a year away to start my own Salt company with Xbone fangirl tears when they realized they've been duped......again. :)~
Can Xbone fan's purchase 792p or 900p TV's yet to get that Native resolution on screen yet?
