Sony already have there own cloud service - Gaikai
Sir, you are comparing two different cloud. I'm talking about the good cloud, the cloud that enhances you and your games. Seriously.
You actually believe that
Dropping drm last week basically means cloud was a pointless feature, it was hilarious how MS advertised it, that cloud was absolutely a necessity to enjoy your games.
Are you questioning MS cloud service. they have spent over 1 billion building it, whil Sony a mere 300 million. They may do the same thing but they are different. One stream, the other beam.
Cloud computing is a joke. The numbers simply don't work. There might be some light workloads done server side, in games with dedicated servers but thats it. Any serious computational workload done server side, would mean terraflops of processing power. Someone has to pay for that power, the hardware, the electricity bill. Your 60 dollars a year ain't gonna cut it.
And as a side note. You would be surprised at how many flagship games of the Xbox 360 don't have dedicated servers. Gears of War 3 is the first that comes to mind. Oh how many times my game had to reset, because the "host" had left...
