How is this going to conquer? This sounds exactly like the services SONY has already announced...

FYI Just wanted to point this out, the xbox 720 ISN'T called Xbox Infinity, it was a hoax that a group made a while back.

Is it really cloud gaming if I need to buy additional hardware? The appeal of OnLive is that it turns your existing computer, tablet or phone into a full fledged gaming device.

the ps4 is gonna kill this thing. microsoft should stick with excel and word. rumor has it the ps4 is going to be 8 times more powerful than the top of the line PCs out right now. not even bill gates can deny facts. he's gonna be livin on the streets come christmas time. have you guys screenshots for the 720? looks worse than the wii u. i'd rather buy a wii u just because they're different from a PC, but i'm definitely buying a PS4. i still have the original xbox it's still a great system, 360 was OK but too many hardware issues. the 720 is just gonna be another room heater oh and i also heard there's not going to be a SSD in it but the PS4 is gonna have a 256gig SSD with hologram technology and no joke some games will have smell added which sony will sell these speakers that smell like fire like if you're running through fire. and wind if it's windy. it's going to be insane.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Dude, whatever meds you are on or narcotics you are abusing, STOP TAKING IT IMMEDIATELY!!!!!! I've read a lot of FUD over the years here on Tom's and elsewhere, but you just broke the mold. Unless of course you are just being an idiot and trolling with stupidity. Oh and I'm also getting a PS4 in place of my PS3...but will still leave the *real* gaming for eye candy to my 4.8GHz, 680-SLI PC running a 2560x1440 resolution monitor.

@dietrich1-Theres a few problems with your "facts"-Firstly bill gates doesnt really bank on the xbox to keep microsoft profitable. So i dont think he'll be living on any street anytime soon. Secondly, ill take hardware issues with the xbox over the sony servers going down for months at a time ANY day. Lastly, NO console will EVER be more powerful than a pc, let alone top of the line pc's. Not sure you understand how computers and consoles work....but clearly somebody has been drinking a lot of sony kool-aid. Enjoy your 800 dollar server failure and having your credit cards stolen by hackers! Oh and your "smell system". Silly trolls.

The problem with Cloud Gaming is that it takes forever to download a regular game.

I can't say I'm a huge fan of streaming since I'm on a 2.5 mbit connection right now, streamed games wouldn't even be playable for me. But in the future I'm going to be upgrading to 50 mbit, and then streaming might just mean something to me. I'll take streaming backwards compatibility over no backwards compatibility.

Anyone who buys a playstation or Xbox to play streaming games is a retard, but they do say a fool and his money are soon parted.

On a side note, I HATE focus group words like the cloud.

Dear cloudies: Can someone please explain why I'm supposed to be so excited about streaming games? I'd much rather not have to depend on the whims of my Internet connection to tell me whether I'm able to boot up a game, or whether it's going to suddenly crash at a bad time. Walking over and popping in a disc IS NOT THAT BIG A DEAL. Neither is having a shelf full of discs, I mean how many hundreds do you think I have.

Um, no. You don't download a "cloud" game at all. It's the quickest way of playing any game.

If you play all your games on one device (console or computer) and you don't mind paying full price for virtually every game you buy, cloud gaming may be not be for you. The only way to play newer type games on any device like a tablet or even a smartphone is the cloud. Check out L.A. Noire or Homefront on OnLive and you'll understand.

You realize you're automatically getting the idiot of the day award no matter what other users post from this point on? I haven't read someone's words that made them appear so far up a company's rear like this in a long time, wow!
