The HP 2311xi isn’t your typical 23-inch LED monitor. It has an extremely wide viewing angle, a beautiful IPS display and lots of connections that include HDMI. It is a full 1080p HD display that provides a very good looking image but it lacks ergonomic adjustments.

Nvidia Interview on Cloud Gaming – Rock Paper Shotgun

So the modern PC gamer is still gonna prefer a PC gaming experience. However, I think he’s going to appreciate that he also has the opportunity to enjoy that experience on other displays. I don’t think it’ll replace his PC gaming experience. It’ll just extend it. He’ll give up a bit of resolution and latency, but I think he’ll appreciate that for the convenience of being able to play on multiple devices.

  1. Lots of good stuff here. As an Old School Gamer I’d say I’m pretty stoked about the new Cyberpunk title from CDProjekt. I’m not sure that the newer, younger generation of gamers even uses the word “stoked” anymore.

    I do want to say a few words about Cloud Gaming. It makes me a little nervous that it is the developers who are most excited about it, rather than the players. If the studios put out a new technology that the consumers don’t want then bad thing tend to happen. As the developers are aware of this they need to ensure that gamers will want clouded games, the precedent for this could be Steam and Origin. If the cloud services are the only option for playing a hot new anticipated title, like say a new COD or GTA, then many gamers will suck it up and play the games. This won’t be an acceptance of the cloud but rather the games themselves. The other aspect that the developers are not seeing is the strong modding communities that have kept many games going past thier expected life cycle. Obviously an uber mod friendly studio like Bethesda won’t touch cloud gaming (the Elder Scrolls MMO excepted) without considering the impact on modders. But there are many games out there that developed modding communities despite the studio never even considering the possibility. If Arkham Asylum, Fable and Arma can get mods then no studio should just assume that there aren’t modders looking to get their hands on the developers next release. Oh wait, we put it on the cloud for convenience so mods aren’t possible.

    • I agree with your worry on Cloud Gaming. Anytime you remove control from the consumer, it can only be a bad thing. Honestly, I would much rather go back to the days of buying at a store, owning a physical copy and using CD keys.

      OnLive is doing this right now and some developers are embracing it as a DRM solution.
