has anyone seen that service live at GDC ? i'm really dubious about it being not laggy on any average broadband connection... i guess it targets fiber/FTTH subscribers.

and have they developed emulators of current nextgen consoles for their servers ??

stupid me, they 'stream' only PC games.

That looks nice'ish. It's interesting to know that some graphical effects are done on the CPU.

Glow goes well with everything.

the point i have to make is - its a tech demo showing deferred lighting and volumetrics performed on the spu (saving a massive amount of gpu time in the process), the graphics are just to show something better than the usual boxes and toriii. :) (and there were 100 point lights, 3 shadowcasting lights, it ran always at 60hz or better at full 720p and had 2x msaa on. if you work on ps3 you might think thats something interesting. :) )

smash, I heard a rumour you don't even work at sony (a 15 year old boy told me)
cool. Does this mean that the gpu is idling almost completely, or are there stuff you´re not telling us? :) That has to be the best optimizing in a long time.

hyde: the gpu does the geometry rendering :) it gives a pretty even split of work between gpu and spu.

hyde: the spus are really, really good at number crunching. a 3.2GHz cpu with 128 registers, a pretty complete set of vector instructions and single-cycle memory access is not to be underestimated :)

too bad you can't use the RSX without an official kit :(
