Inky Posted March 24, 2009 Share Posted March 24, 2009 http://www.joystiq.com/2009/03/24/gdc09-re...vice-and-micro/The unique part of the company's concept is the fact that you don't need a high-powered PC gaming rig to play something like Crysis Wars, because, in effect, you're upstreaming your controller input to the company's servers, which is a tiny fraction of bandwidth, and they're streaming the game back down to you in real time. It's a strange concept, to be sure, but if an idea like this can work, imagine never having to upgrade your hardware ever again. if this type of thing could truly be pulled off it would be a revolution. It's basically like On demand movies from your cable or satellite receiver. I give it a70% chance of vaporware like the phantom. but if they manage to pull it off.... Sony, MS, Nintendo, Nvidia, and ATI would be in for a hell of a fight. color me interested Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
