What are your thoughts on cloud gaming?
There have been lots of rumors going around that the next Playstation and Xbox may introduce cloud gaming*. Some even think that it will be only cloud gaming with no physical media to use.
While cloud gaming is being used (onlive) it does not seem to be as popular as some may think.
Would you like to see the next generation of systems go to cloud streaming? What do you think the pros and cons would be?
*Cloud gaming is using the internet to stream your game to you. Kind of like Netflix does with movies. You purchase/rent the games from the publishers/developers.
I feel that this would be a bad way for the gaming industry to go. One inherent flaw is that you would be required to have internet up and running to play games.
Another is that it uses a lot of bandwidth to stream games and most if not all internet providers cap the amount of data used monthly.
