GDC: "Cloud is a great opportunity," says Wright


Spore-creator Will Wright has told VG247 that he believes Cloud will work if supported properly by developers and publishers, and that the concept represents a "great opportunity" for the industry.

"In the future, if people are really browsing these things, it's a great opportunity," he said, talking of Cloud-based systems like OnLive, which was announced this week at GDC.

If Cloud gaming's successful, however, Wright said it wouldn't affect the way he develops games.

"No, not really," he said when asked if a surge in Cloud popularity would change his content.

"With hardware I really don't care if it's Xbox, PC or Cloud."

OnLive caused quite a stir earlier this week with its remote-play concept, a theory apparently debunked yesterday by tech specialist Richard Leadbetter.
