Top developers claim


Computer games will slowly all migrate to the Internet, according to a panel of experts.

Young said that everything was moving toward the network, while Harrison said that public utility computing is absolutely the future of the games industry.

Young said that it will be a huge game changer for the industry when there is no requirement for there to be a machine in the home. If a player was connected to a Google server farm in Oregon, for it to be rendered, sent down the pipe and shown on a television that you paid an extra five or 10 dollars to your cable company to guarantee you had good enough bandwidth for gaming.
