i'll quote those paragraph for others' convenience and i am sure ian won't mind - he's a member here and loves us!!
(i'd mention him but . . i fail at some of the functions on this site anymore)

i really don't expect much info until after release; i think that they think its best to keep everything close to the vest. i'm sure a demo will pop up here and there but i think the PR campaign starts close to launch; which still is unknow.

the little take away (if there) is the answer raja gave about multi chiplets; he went off talking mgpu. sli/xfire hasn't been . . well ya know. hopefully some what that (stuff) for multi chips helps multi cards.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

Wooooah, that's one of those weird local rendering things isn't it? Like, it doesn't get as good a resolution, but the latency was way lower? Maaaan, imagine a time when the games didin't do the shooting and aiming for you!

and a rotary phone.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

What I dont want to see is Epic , Steam, EA, Disney, Microsoft all offering their own with their set of exclusive games.
Of course it will affect you. At some point you will start to see cloud based exclusive games, and consoles can start to become less expensive as cloud based makes it require less demanding hardware.
Imagine a PS8 or whatever with 2 versions, one that cost 600$ with local hardware, and one that cost 100$ and 5$ subscription fee, that gives you the same, but with cloud based gaming. The masses will prefer to save money and pay for the 100$ if it gives the same experience. You buy the game online, you don't have to download 60GB of game, and you still have a few hundreds of $$ to buy games.
So parents will prefer that over a 600$ machine.
That will though lock you to either pay subscription or that 100$ box becomes a paper weight. And that is pure profit, as the hardware will cost so much less, and the subscription fee is almost pure income. And if you want PS+ as well, pay extra. More profit.

Cloud based gaming is the next best thing for profit from games. And everyone will soon push for it once nvidia, AMD, google and intel have a working solutions that game companies will find beneficial.

This isn't the first time I have heard statements of this kind - I am fundamentally opposed to it though. I'm not against subscription services as such but I don't understand, yet, how you could achieve this and still maintain the immersion that I have loved in the 20 some years of customizing my gaming experience.
