It's where gaming will end up eventually...don't know if it's quite there yet though, in terms of mass-appeal.

Not sure, I can't say 'no of course it can't' but all signs point to its only at best a near-similar experience to a locally rendered/executed instance.  For games that haven't got time-sensitivity it could be acceptable, but you can't get around the lag of vast amounts of bits needing to travel from their CDNs to your device vs a local system's circuits and a quick pop through a display cable.  I could see this consuming large segments of the console market, its definitely an evolutionary step in freely the end-user of even more technological upkeep management.

Current tech can't pull it off, maybe in ten years and with a number of current day obstacles like the entrenched internet providers offering substandard connections.  As I understand it places like Japan have phenomenal internet access, they'd be the places to watch adoption rates as they'd get the best experience that streamed gaming could provide.

I have no idea what this headline means, and I have no idea what any of you are talking about.


That is all

Actually it is pretty good as far as no lag goes. I have several friends who are big gamers like me and we have tried them all, Stadia, Amazon Luna, Geforce Now, PS Now, Game Pass and Bluestacks. For those not into gaming Bluestacks is an Android emulator that lets you connect your PC to the Microsoft network and stream Xbox games from game pass making it see your connection as if you are playing on a phone or tablet since MS is dragging their feet offering streaming to PC's. Bluestacks even lets you download anything from the Play Store to your PC and play it like you were on a phone except you get to use a controller and play on your monitor/TV instead of a tiny phone screen.

We have tried multiplayer on all our games and even hopped into some MMO's like Tera and Elder Scrolls Online and to our surprise we had no lag most of the time and lag spikes seem to only hit when we entered crowded places like the main cities in ESO with thousands of players. Those spikes were very quick and did not affect our gameplay. So far the only ones I have kept and actually pay money too are Geforce Now because it links to my Steam library of over 250 games, PS Now because I do not own a PS4 but I can play over 350 PS games on my PC with their service and they run great and of course Microsoft Game Pass because Microsoft is going to control  the world one day and it offers a good mix of new and old Xbox titles. Maybe my Xbox Series X will ship from them one day since they already have my damn money in full.

I like the streaming services because I can grab a controller and sit my butt on my couch with a cold beer while enjoying a game on my 85" TV. The only thing I will say to anyone thinking of trying them is make sure you have a fast internet connection. My house streams tons of data daily with me gaming, my wife streaming TV and my sister living and working on the internet. We have 1 Gig internet so we have no issues unless my provider gets a hiccup on their end which thankfully is not very often. One of my friends lives further out in the country than me so his only option is 150 MB internet and he says he does get more lag than the rest of us but that could be from him streaming games, his wife streaming games and his 3 kids all have consoles and stream games so they are using a lot of bandwidth but he claims it is not unplayable just that he gets more random lag spikes than the rest of us.

I can see streaming taking over because it lets you play new games on crap hardware without the need to sink thousands into a gaming PC. One of my friends plays with us on a crappy Dell from 2000 and he plays just fine in ultra mode on his HD TV, if you saw him playing you would think he was using a top end gaming PC not a 21 year old Dell with onboard graphics. He has even tried it on his old laptop at the local coffee shop and according to him it was amazing. Who would have thought you could play Cyberpunk in ultra mode on an old Dell laptop with only 1 gig of memory and it runs smoothly with instant controller response. While the rest of us have gaming PC's that cost us over 3 grand he is playing the same games as us on old dinosaur systems and laughing at us for shelling out that money. IMO that is what will sell streaming services going into the future. No more worrying about PC upgrades, drivers or massive HDD storage space for these large games.

Only 9,000 more? Seems like a conservative estimate.
