PSXE Poll Update: PlayStation Fans Iffy On Gaikai Acquisition

The analysts loved it, as did other industry veterans.

But what do the gamers think? Well, while a slim majority agree; they love Sony's acquisition of the Gaikai cloud service, a great many aren't convinced...they wanna wait and see what happens.

Cloud gaming is definitely a part of our future, despite what the traditionalists may want. The only question left is just how big it will get; the digital world will undoubtedly dominate the industry at some point, but how exactly it'll dominate remains to be seen. We're not about to make any grand predictions. In this industry, it's a bad idea to guess at the future, even if it's only the near future. For my part, I just want my physical library and the rest can go take a long walk off a short pier. But I'm old-fashioned.

This week, we wanna get a sneak peek at this year's EA/Activision shooter face-off: Which will you be getting, Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops II or EA's Medal of Honor: Warfighter? Getting both? Or neither? There's no doubt that BOII will outsell DICE's new effort but that doesn't mean it'll be better...or does it?

Yeah, neither but if I had to choose, of course, it would be whatever is opposing COD.

I'm one of those who bought Battlefield 3 last year, pretty much - or even mainly - as a statement.
I haven't played that game nearly as much as I played earlier CODs. It's just how it is.

So this year, if I am up for some multiplayer gaming I will look at the titles on offer and pick the one who suits my playstyle and preferences the best, and let that be the deciding factor. And I don't *care* if it happens to be the most popular title.

im really excited to see what is done with it!
theres so many things they could do with it.
from bringing back ps2 compatibility, to streaming demos and maybe even full ps3 games.
or even waiting till the ps4 comes out and stream both ps3 and ps4 games.
i really hope $ony does bring ps2 streaming services, though if there going to do it they REALLY need to get allot better support than what the psn store has!
if there going to get all the blockbuster hits like the simpsons hit and run, RE4, spiderman 2, GTA, ect, ect than id be great!
but if its only going to be a small pick of games, and 99% of them games no one has ever heard about like the PSN store is like than theres no point!

as for the pole ill probably get BO2 simply because i really like the new futuristic setting their bringing to it, it looks really cool!
all the new gadgets you get to play with.
MoH i was jumping up and down like a school kid in a candy shop for!
i really loved the reboot simply because it was so dark and gritty, so tactical it really made you feel like a tier 1 operative!
it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO different from all the other military shooters out there!
MoH warfighter though, well, it just looks like your mindless COD wannabe!
sad, i was really looking forward to it but they have completely destroyed it by again everything has to copy COD!
for f*cks sake if 1 more game changes to copy them i swear to god im obtaining the worlds nuclear launch codes and blowing this world to kingdom come!
driving me f*cking insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it's a great acquisition by Sony. I am eager to see how they use it. I am also interested in how it performs. It's going to have to be a wait and see situation.

Call of Duty hands down. Love CoD and have already preordered 2 copies. One for my step-son (Birthday present) and one for me. Should be a great time. I am really looking forward to Declassified as well for the Vita. However, I will be waiting for reviews first. I hope they hit a grand slam with Declassified. If this game is done right it could sell a ton of Vitas!

Neither. Borderlands 2, and Dishonored for me.
