LOTR Online and D&D Online going cloud streaming

0

First it was the move to free-to-play that brought throngs of new players to both The Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online in the past. What's there left to do? Well, cloud streaming, of course! Starting today with LOTRO (D&D Online is coming soon), Gaikai is going to be streaming MMOs for the first time ever through its cloud streaming technology, which is similar to how OnLive makes it work.

Downloading MMOs has always been a pain simply because they have ended up being huge downloads, and if you stopped playing them for a good amount of time, that's a significant portion of your hard drive wasted. Gaikai will allow you to play these games (and more) without ever having to download and install anything. Pretty amazing. If my Internet can handle it, I may just have to go ahead and uninstall LOTRO myself simply out of convenience.
