The analysts loved it, as did other industry veterans.

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?
