Xbox Live boss: Cloud gaming won't overtake consoles any time soon

European Xbox Live boss Jerry Johnson has seen what streaming videogame services like OnLive and Gaikai have to offer, but - despite their potential ability to send his main moneymaker packing - he's not too worried.

"Streaming technology is something that the industry is betting on longer term... right now I don't believe that technology can scale out against the experience we can offer on a local machine," he said during the London Games Conference.

"The technology will continue to improve. As an industry we'll have to accept that and move with it - but I don't think it's on an accelerated timeline for the foreseeable future," he added.
