yeah, when every household has a quantum entanglement hyper-light connection and petabits per second speeds i'll consider cloud gaming. even then i probably won't like it.
why can't anyone else see that this push to the cloud is an attempt by corporations to insert more and more middlemen and other barriers between you and your content? i got a letter yesterday that AT&T had dropped my data cap from 250 to 150 GB a month, another letter that i had exceeded my 150GB data cap, and another letter that they were raising the price of the 150 GB a month package. hilariously, i also got an email about "cloud storage" and how i should "upgrade" to u-verse.
once a high enough percentage of all users switch to the cloud, your average joe won't even be able to buy a hard drive or SSD. internet service providers and content providers, most ESPECIALLY companies like EA and AT&T, want people to go to the cloud so they can hold your data hostage. devices in the home will be nothing more than screens with input ports for keyboards and controllers, and will probably come with credit card sliders on the side as an industry standard.
all the mice are blind.
