The demo they showed was years before and was really just a tech demo I don't think it was ever really a game at that point and I don't believe they would have ever gotten that to work outside of the controlled environment.

I doubt a company like MS would have signed a deal with an outside developer to have that kind of tech worked on without there being an agreement that they would own the rights to how it was done in their game, it would be an amateurish move to build an entire game around technology that can be taken away from you that way, it would mean millions of dollars were basically wasted.
Well, regardless, it was a nasty wake up call, and I can't ever get excited for anything until it's in front of me now.

You are blindly hyping unproven technology. To be clear I'm not against streaming I'm against streaming only. We shouldn't be forced to rely on internet to play games. If you ask me it's straight up anti consumer.
Every technology is unproven until it isn't. Hell, wasn't it you who posted a link about Navi in the PS5 thread - and remind me how many games have been played with a Navi GPU yet? I don't think "unproven" is the hill you want to die on here.

Probably the same arguments could have been made for the ethernet port on the original XBox, and they would have been dead wrong. They could have been made about the Kinect, and they'd have been right. One thing MS does know, though, is the Cloud - whether they can make it work for gaming is up for debate but writing it off because you haven't seen it is probably more a function of it being MS than it being unseen.

"To be clear I'm not against streaming I'm against streaming only."

Secondly we know what GPU's can do more or less. it's literally the same thing we have now except more powerful.
Streaming is a DOWNGRADE in terms of quality and it forces you online.

If only there were anything else the Internet could be used for in gaming other than streaming and streaming only. Maybe, someday, some visionary company will let people play multiplayer games with friends in other locations?
