I'll go out a little bit on a limb and say that I think cloud gaming will eventually be a significant part of the landscape. Consumers have shown over and over again that convenience can often more than offset some quality issues,
Oh come on, that's hardly "going out on a limb", John. Of course cloud gaming will be significant, but it's going to take at least another decade. It's like saying "renewable energy is going to be significant". I assume he's referring to iTunes and iOS with the latter comment, which I agree with, and it does concern me that people might be happy to play a game over a service like OnLive and be happy with the obscene video compression and lag.
