"Fuck Everything, We're Doing 4K"... (reference)
So they keep bullying Android device makers with patents, reducing privacy, etc. I see.
Network latency is going to keep all these remote game solutions as inferior. Even with fiber optic connections becoming widespread is going to be worse than local gaming.
That's an example of moral misery. In my opinion.
In South Korea only old people do Low-Protein Diet.
In my opinion, the point of using x86 in order to reuse units from desktop/server CPUs is the base of these experiments. The counterpart is to deal with the x86-mess everywhere. This seems a desperate reaction to AMD's CPU+GPGPU, which also has drawbacks. I bet that both Intel and AMD prefer to keep memory controller as simpler as possible, having a confortable long-run, without burning their ships too early. E.g. a CPU+GPGPU in the same die, with 8 x 128 bit separate memory controllers configured as NUMA (i.e. without channel interleaving/bonding) would be much better, but it would imply expensive chips, motherboards, and more DRAM chips. So I bet we'll have same-die CPU+GPU plus simple memory controller (even with embbeded RAM in 3D package) for the next 20 years (consumer-grade products).
In Europe old people don't expect the Spanish Inquisition
Agree. But I *PAID* for running Linux, and then they *REMOVED* such feature, unless you kept your console out of date, without playing new games (last firmware with "Other OS" enabled is 3.15).
After removing the "Other OS" feature in the Playstation 3, which enabled running Linux, I'm no longer interested in your devices.
Why to spend power in datacenters when people can use it at home? Other than vendor-lock, is non-sense. Another thing is how scalabe the thing is, etc.
Fuck buy TrueCrypt.
Except for hardcore gamers, in my opinion there is no reason for "low-performing gaming consoles" when in 2-3 years a mid-priced smartphone with HDMI + bluetooth running Android will reach similar results. They can become a platform-agnostic seal, providing what users want from them: Mario stuff and fun family games.
I hope this mean not only first class graphics API porting (e.g. OpenGL), but also production-grade computing API (e.g. OpenCL) without vendor-specific crap (try to rebuild OpenCL stuff with the AMD """""SDK""""").
