Impressive.

This could not only revolutionize people's ability to play MMOs, but revitalize the PC market much further.

Is this and Onlive the same service? I missed that...

OnLive and Gaikai will be competitors as they're offering very similar services. There are some big 'IFs' with how this will all work out (particularly in terms of latency) but as JP said above, it could be a significant new dimension to how we play our games.

I picked up on Gaikai because there was specific mention of the top fantasy and sci-fi MMO titles in Perry's statements. This is not to say that OnLive won't have similar offerings, but I don't have the details yet.

I think both of their ideas are brilliant but they will require a very finite level of tweaking to be succesiful. Personally im pumped about this idea. Glad someone started thinking outside the box :)

If this works and the games are a giant lag fest with this service, this will be absolutely amazing for the computer gaming market, specifically for Mac users.

Such an untapped market with MMOs. Only EVE and WoW have really tried to reach that market.

"It this works..."

It won't.

I notice he opened with "We already have a patent with what Onlive is doing."

I smell lawsuits.

I wonder what kind of extra markup price this will have atop your mmo subscription. Would seem to me that you can expect to double your monthly costs.

I like how whenever someone mentions cross-platform around here, they only mention Mac, and never mention Linux.
