Adding the entire PC gaming lineup on PS3 could be somewhat big.
that's kinda cool. i guess it streams the game to you as the video only, with controller inputs sent to their servers? pricing isn't bad, but unless you're looking for a PC-exclusive, I think you're much better off just buying the actual games (or using Gamefly if you want to rent). I can imagine there being lag, PSN downtime, etc
Hm... I am still very sceptical towards "games streaming". Latency is already a problem in current games, and adding an additional step in between inadvertedly leads to problems. Though, with a good PC, you can effectively lower the normal latency to offset the additional one.
Thing is, with a service like this... you'll never "own own" your games. You can play them etc... but you can never do the rest with it. It's worse than owning stuff on PSN. Gaikai/OnLive/Sony pull the plug? You'll lose ALL your games. With Steam, for example, you could download ALL your games before that happens. With a service like this, it's not possible.
Kept you waiting
Unless maybe if you get into hacking/emulation/etc (what they would call "piracy")
With physical media, you can keep your games for practically forever. My PS1 for instance was passed down from me to my sister, and now to her son. Who btw also has my Sega Genesis games, and we've bought NES games off eBay for him too (I bought him a Sega/NES-combo console).
PlayStation hopes to steal the show with Cage appearance; Quantic Dream working on two new titles
http://www.computerandvideogames.com...ny-conference/The studio that built PS3 classic Heavy Rain is just days away from revealing its new project, CVG understands.
Quantic Dream founder David Cage Quantic Dream founder David Cage
David Cage, founder of Quantic Dream, will take centre stage at Sony's E3 press conference next Monday to offer a glimpse into his next major title.
A trusted senior development source has also told CVG that the Paris studio is currently working on two separate mystery projects, each for Sony, though it is unclear if both are being targeted for a PS3 release.
Cage himself recently suggested he would be happy to develop on PlayStation 3 for the next five years. But the reveal of Cage's first project is expected to be a major draw for Sony at E3, as the electronics giant prepares to parade a catalogue of exclusive games for both Vita and PS3.
A Sony spokesperson declined to comment.
In March, Cage laid bare the new technology that will provide the backdrop to his next game. A seven-minute video demo, called Kara, portrayed the construction of a female android who inadvertently becomes aware of herself when given a name.
Cage said the new technology incorporates advanced motion-capture techniques that will allow it to raise the bar set by Heavy Rain.
"There were so many things we couldn't do with our Heavy Rain engine, so we decided to build a new one," Cage said.
Umm......yeah. Total juggernaut move. With Sony buying this company out, PC exclusive could be no more in addition to a platform ever launching again with a tiny catelogue of games. What's really interesting, which I've noted many times, is the tablet, smart phone, and TV market. Imagine PSN's online user base then. O_OHowever, MCV understands that the deal is far more extensive than anyone could have predicted and will see Sony fully acquire one of the two firms. The deal, our source says, “is close to being signed”.

Pro Evolution Soccer will uses Kojima Production's Fox Engine next generation. I starting to wonder if Konami is starting to stretch KP a bit to far.
It doesn't mean that Kojima Productions will develop sports games. My best guess is that they have their best talent in the Kojima Productions division and the mother company as a whole is going to take full advantage of their engine. Like Capcom does with MT Framework, I guess.
Yes, but for a developer who has only put out 1 game this generation and only 1 other game we know of in development having to commit guys to not only teaching the engine to other teams but to make adjustments for other teams I see it as over stretching. Right now I don't see a focused team, especially with Kojima going all over the place and doing different things.
Yeah, in terms of quantity, their output this gen has been bad, mostly in terms of HD games.
