Cloud Mobile Gaming (CMG) has been proposed as an approach to enable rich Internet games on mobile devices, where the rendering of the games is performed on cloud servers, as opposed to on mobile devices. Though promising, the CMG approach may require significant cloud computing resources for the concurrent gaming sessions, and even more critically, significant bandwidth for delivering the rendered videos back to mobile devices, leading to high cloud costs, and questions regarding resource constrained wireless networks.
