Gaikai

4 replies 116 views Edited Jul 10, 2013

I'm sorry if this is a repost, but I was wanting to know, has anyone here actually used a cloud gaming service before? If so how did it work for you? Also do you think there are going to be any graphical decreases w/ the ps4 and gaikai? cause I'm imagining like lol you're playing on someone elses systems and you're just seeing like a live recording of it -_-



Got my Vita for $50. Woot.

I think much will depend on your internet speed, and your internet provider.  I've heard of some companies "throttling" internet speeds for heavy users, and a streaming service will definitely use up a good deal of bandwidth.

 

I suppose it shouldn't be much worse than Netflix.

And I'd add that depending on your internet speed, you might experience some controller lag. But I've heard that Gaikai is a pretty solid service, like far superior to that of OnLive.

That's something we really don't know. I hope so. If they ever get Oblivion and Skyrim on there I would like to be able to use my current saves from my PS3. But it's a big question mark right now.
