Gaikai Gains a Powerful Ally

Gaikai Gains a Powerful Ally

Dave Perry’s cloud gaming love child Gaikai has forged an agreement with gaming juggernaut EA to provide some of their larger titles on the service. Currently confirmed franchises are The Sims, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Medal of Honor, and Need for Speed. So, now it has the games, but does it have the ability to […]

OnLive Starts its Hype Machine

OnLive Starts its Hype Machine

Right now it’s Dave Perry’s Gaikai vs the guys at OnLive. The promise of not needing any high end computing system / graphics card to play some of the most awesome […]

Place Your Bets: Gaikai or OnLive?

Place Your Bets: Gaikai or OnLive?

Ive been championing Dave Perry’s Gaikai for quite a while now thanks to the fact that it’ll all be done without the need for special controllers or boxes on the user side, unlike OnLive which will require something of the sort.

His plan is to not order and additional servers for Gaikai until they’ve hit their max, and if that happens, they’ll […]

Dave Perry on Gaikai’s 2010 Release

Dave Perry (one of my heroes in the videogaming world) had an interview with VG247 recently that is damned enlightening. In it he talks about the upcoming launch of his Gaikai service (which could spell the end of console gaming within a decade if it works well) in 2010 and the amount of people he […]

Dave Perry’s Been a Busy Man

Ever since his Earthworm Jim days at Shiny, I knew that we were always going to revere the name of Dave Perry. Now that I’ve seen an example of the new fad of ‘cloud computing’ through his Gaikai application that requires NO downloads and NO plug-ins (can’t say the same thing can you On-Live?). I’m […]
