The ones that are look good (better than Onlive streams) and you will probably need at least 10Mbit to stream those otherwise it reverts to a lower setting.
I notice they start off in 480 SD then it ramps upa s it detects your internet speed.
Not tried Love film.
Gaikai will be limited MOSTLY by your Upload Speed if your Download Speed is decent.
If you have 8MB or more down, your fine, but your sharing features could be slow on the way up.
If you have really poor upload speed, then, that could affect controls.
If your the only one on and have an upload of over 2MB/s you should be 'fine'.
Best will be more like 6MB/s up. I say this due to network realities.
People on FiOS and Google Fiber will love life.
People on Comcast, like myself, ant ATT's NOT FIOS U-Verse largely will be perfectly happy.
People on DSL are going to be in serious trouble frankly.
David Perry and the Gaikai crew, alot of who are also former Shiny Ent people, are very talented.
I'm sure that ASIDE from making games run on servers remotely, they have done alot of research and development in computational computing of remote game objects, essentially 'all that jazz' MS has talked about online. So, we'll see alot of influence from Gaikai that might not necessarily make the press.
im not buying into teh cloud hype for now. ms' implementation of cloud as well as sony's gaikai are both gimmicks to me, for now (until proven otherwise).
All you have to decide is what to do with the time give to you....
Upload is less important until it's not fast enough, then your controls get high latency and your teleporting around a cloud title aimlessly.
I can tell you that Gaikai works, and SONY spent their money wisely for what they want to do.
Another advantage is that the PS1 and PS2 titles are going to all be low Rez and will zip across Gaikai, the PS3 titles even will alot of times be 720P. MOST PC titles that came across it were at 768p or higher. So, aside from installing the SONY game servers (which i'm sure IBM is still real happy about, that means server farms of Cell Processors), their history of already delivering this spot on makes this something to be quite positive about (and I'm usually grumpy!).
I think it will require plenty of bandwidth to even run the game properly without any lag and at least 720p, at least for the PS3 game library. I might try Gaikai if it's included in the PS Plus subscription, don't intend on spending some extra buck for a Gaikai sub and also paying a bit more for a boost on my internet connection if it's not good enough.
