I do not have a touchscreen PC, and I have very little desire to get one.

And a sub model for Office? Lame.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 19, 2013 3:04:33 PM PST
Well I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Every Console I own I also own games for, I made that mistake before... never again.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 19, 2013 2:55:03 PM PST
you just rather put money on a console with no games

Good things about Cloud Gaming:
- If done locally you can operate multiple sessions on a single server instance
-- (play multiple games on your TV, Nvidia Project Shield, and tablet from a single PC)
- Have a backup of your game saves
- minimal need to update your own content, it should happen server side.
- no need to manage your content or hardware (to an extent)

Bad things about Cloud Gaming
- Can be heavily dependent internet connection
-- lower quality connections than what is available on a faster home network
-- lower fidelity due to bandwidth limitations
-- added latency
- games and account can be stuck behind a service plan
- doesn't provide a way to modify game content
-- (can't choose patch version or install game mods)

"Microsoft has already got its ball," said Payne, "they've bashed that ball around quite a fair bit, don't worry about that. They've already got their strategy well in place.

"If anything, Sony has been playing catch up. It's just that Microsoft hasn't told everybody necessarily what they're doing with their streaming service.

"Very simply," he added, "Microsoft is a technology company. This is about technology. They will have their balls nicely in a row, without any shadow of a doubt, on their offering through Xbox. They know that. It will only be a matter of time, won't it? It's an arms race.

People hate Windows 8 because it's different. Truthfully, it's great if you have a touchscreen-enabled PC...not so much if you have to use a mouse.

People hate Office 2013 because of the subscription model.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 19, 2013 2:28:49 PM PST
Ah, is that why people hate Win8 and Office 13?

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 19, 2013 2:27:59 PM PST
LMAO, sick burn!

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 19, 2013 2:27:21 PM PST
Oh, I'm sure they're looking into it. I'm not so sure they've spent nearly as much as Sony has.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 19, 2013 2:26:03 PM PST
Because it's new!

I don't think MS has invested a whole lot into gaming, period.

MS has invested a lot into cloud computing in general. Windows 8 and Office 2013 are primarily made to operate in the cloud. No reason to think they won't somehow implement this business strategy in Xbox too.

Just look at how many people play League of Legends, get on with the times please.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 19, 2013 2:22:15 PM PST
Because it requires "always online" connections, apparently.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 19, 2013 2:22:08 PM PST
Because it's not corporeal? I dunno. I tried. I'm sorry.

It's not 1995, I don't see why people are against cloud servers.

<snip>

"So there's just bandwidth issues in terms of metering and things that are out there. So I believe, yes, in the long run we'll land in a spot where there's cloud distribution of all content and Microsoft is clearly invested in that. I like the work that Gaikai does, I play games on Gaikai, and if I get the right bandwidth situation they're actually good experiences.

"But today it's not really up to scale. You're still going to be pushing boxes out to people's houses that they're going to plug into the TV. That's what they're going to use to play their AAA games. And I think that'll be the case for a while. But that's not trying to downplay what Gaikai is doing, because I think that it's great that they're investing in it."

Many predict that Microsoft and Sony will include cloud gaming features in their next generation home consoles, rumoured to be due out late next year.
