No, its no good
It has to be able to play them on itself, not let something else play it, and send it to your device, and your device sending your instructions to it again
I can do this on my xperia play already, nothing new

Yeah, this would be sweet if it could play the games on its own, not just streaming them

So it's allows you to interface as if it was a gaming version of teamviewer or similar software? That's not incredibly innovative on their part :/ on top of that, Onlive had decent streaming to mobile as long as you were on 4G or WiFi so this has been done to some level before this.

As others have said, this would have been better especially if Tegra 4 is using Kepler to see playable games locally that don't depend on your system being on 24/7 and your phone having sufficient bandwidth available to it.

This is interesting but how often would you want to actually use it unless you travel alot or something? Most people would probably prefer keyboar+mouse for FPS games and its not really suited for MMOs, most "hardcore" gamers wuold probably want a more dedicated setup anyway.

It does play games on it's own doesn't it? The article says that it was playing Hawken.

I think people are missing that this is a full-fledged Android device that will have higher performance than any tablet (it is first device with Tegra4 and the keynote video shows an active heatsink which could let it hit higher clock speeds than other Tegra4 devices), has 32GB internal flash and expandable microSD. The PC streaming is certainly a niche perk, but not the primary function of the device.

MrGrimm it certainly is capable of and probably does play it on its own, just like the much weaker Ouya can.
