He's responsible for -- TV quick time even the special effects behind the film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
These special effects of that was real he's now tapped into the world of video games delivering content he would TV via the web Steve Perlman.
Founder and CEO of on line joins -- right -- look at -- itself.
I think it's glad to be here a hit -- what other lives essentially the video game platform.
That enables players to play at home whether it's via their.
That it would -- a computer or TV.
Without actually having a console -- there is that right.
That's exactly right we we have what's called a micro console but fits in the palm of your hand if you want to use -- on your TV.
But for your PC -- Mac is just a little downloaded into your browser.
Why would I'd be interested in online as opposed to a PS3.
Oh we console anything like that what's gonna separate you guys from what they do and what they've done successfully over the years.
Well it's interesting in the past whenever there's been a new console that's come out it's been a direct competitor to the existing consoles.
Certainly can use online instead of those counsels if we have a game you want but a lot of times people use online just to -- a demo of a game decided that -- -- buy it.
To play game on this thing you -- a -- within fifteen seconds the game -- clients are running it's within two seconds.
Did it play any go inside with a -- you want to buy it.
You can buy it -- throughout line or you get a flat rate like Netflix.
Offer you know 999 a month and play all the games you want.
So you have a lot more choices and then if which one is -- -- by the Xbox version of Bob PlayStation version that's great.
In other words what we're there sort of as a first stop place to go for for gaming and that's boys wanna game that's great -- That many console is 99 got as close right in the UTV Steve my question is and I know Netflix struggle with this especially early -- popularly your library.
With the popular games the brand new games and -- wants to play because that's the key.
They want to play the L -- -- world warcraft the -- comes out.
And you know when Xbox-360 came out.
Five years ago -- eighteen games in the first Christmas.
OK so we now have over forty.
And still that's not as much as these mature console that have been around for five years but if they're coming in you know we've had.
Over seven day and date a releases in other words.
The games command on -- the exact same day they came out on the consoles and next year you'll be finding it more and more and more to by the times say the middle of the year you -- saying.
Essentially the same game library -- both the consoles that you and on the online system same day and date.
Isolated you know it's a brand new technology.
When people know nothing about it -- that a lot of people don't realize is that.
This technology never gets obsolete in the games and actually play here they play in a servers -- the Internet.
And we actually transfer of the the video from those servers over to here and it appears in your TV.
So what happens with -- current console as it gets obsolete -- time you're talking about the console -- there about five years old this never gets obsolete.
We keep making the servers that are running in our data center could be a thousand miles away from her home.
Faster and faster -- better graphics new capabilities people never imagined when you know you originally bought this thing.
And you get that benefit on your TV.
In fact to be -- online built into TVs next year.
And much like to get Netflix or pandora today is click on it -- -- this whole library of high performance game.
And in fact starting next year you'll see higher performance gains on our lives that are available anywhere.
The cloud enables you basically to keep up with technology -- people -- so you as a consumer you not to continue to buy.
New hardware you've got the one hardware and you update your hardware US servers and you can just download that stuff that's the great part about it Steve thank you so much we appreciate it.
Great to be here -- -- Steve Perlman from online check it out it's a great idea if -- game because you want to continue to buy new games and you -- the 199.
Little -- decent turnout of probably a lot less expensive and PS3 and then that the gains continue to update themselves and graphics get better and the experience -- better you know to keep buying new piece of equipment LC pollster that it goes and does not become obsolete I thought that was an interesting point --
