MS' cloud computing is at least useful for asynchronous tasks. Gaikai is about 50 years away from giving me a reason to use it. Not playing anything virtualized with anything more than one frame extra of lag.
The difference is that Gakai is optional and something you choose to use. MS Cloud is billed as part of the system and game expectations are being built around it. What happens if you end up with a slow connection or no connection at any point in time? Do you get a lesser quality product or does the console refuse to function?
