Streaming game rivals OnLive or Gaikai could be in the frame to reveal a partnership with Sony's PlayStation devices at E3 according to a report.

Would you like/use Cloud-Gaming in the PS+ subscription?

Depends where you live, 30Mb DL 2Mb UL here, which is relatively rubbish compared so some of my friends speeds.

 

I hope we get it, more choice is good.

if it is their I will take it, if not then no big loss.

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

i can only get a pathetic 2.5 mb connection however a friend of mine gets 50mb and he finds mw3 unplayable, probably because he gets chosen as the host, big cities like manchester ect get decent speed but the majority of the country cant.

Not a fan of Game Rental streaming services.

 

If true this venture rests on how it's presented/priced.  Does your PS+ sub include a dertain amount of Cloud games per month/week? Is there additional subs on top of your PS+ sub? Are the Cloud games discounted for PS+ subbers.

 

So many ways this can fail.

Whilst even the best services have not managed to do it to a level I feel is appropriate, they still work pretty damn well on my connection. The onlive method of delivering demos is very, very good and it is pretty much all I use it for.

The few times I have used OnLive it hasnt been too bad.

 

I very much doubt we will see this at E3 though, but you never know I guess.

Not had any problems with Onlive at all, works fine for me.

Depends if the publishers charge the awful OTT price for games as they do on games released on the Playstation Store.
