Look, MMO-types. Below is a picture of what World of Warcraft looks like running on one of those unfathomably popular giant iPod Touch thingies.

The pic was taken by games designer and 'the bloke who threw a girly tantrum on the Gamesmaster show', Dave Perry, who's working on Gaikai - a new cloud gaming service set to launch this year.

It shows, as Perry explains World of Warcraft streamed from a Gaikai server over regular Wifi. "We're really interested to see what works well with streaming and will be trying just about every genre of game, on every device possible as we explore server-side computing," says Perry in his post.

GaiKai, similar to OnLive, lets gamers play games that are computed on remote hardware, with the video and audio being beamed to them via the internet. The vision is high-performance gaming without the need to own a high-performance PC. Just a blazing fast internet connection, that's all.
