E3 so far has been a mixed bag, the best conference has been from Sony, but even that wasn't perfect. There have been all the usual game and console announcements but very little has been revealed that is truly exciting. At least not from the big three. The most exciting announcement actually comes from Samsung and is about a TV.
Samsung have announced that they will integrate Gaikai, the cloud based gaming service, into their next run of internet TV's. Gaikai offers games such as Mass Effect 3 and The Witcher 2 to be streamed through your computer and other devices. They offer demos and full games.
Of course, cloud based gaming can't take over yet, most people's Internet connection simply isn't good enough and it won't be for a few years yet. Consoles will still play a major role in gaming for years to come but, with OnLive improving and Gaikai moving into TVs their days are certainly numbered.
Many people won't welcome the change but bear in mind that if it happens it won't be for years yet and even then surely having console quality games on TVs, tablets, phones and computers is a great thing.
