    As someone with a 1gb/s ffth connection at home, im interested in this. Im curious how well it will play

    Even if they are successful, i dont see streaming replacing traditional gaming anytime soon

    So I played the project stream and I'll tell you right now that I had zero delay between input and the actual game. I hate assassin's Creed but I found the graphics capability to be amazing. If your worry is that you can't archive the games you like and play them that seems a bit dramatic. Can you archive games that are multiplayer only like fortnite or apex? PC versions of games will still exist just like how you can still get Blu-ray movies even though you can stream it. This thread is being dramatic cause they can't pirate streaming.

    Well, that's the strange thing about it: It doesn't require additional hardware. So, if you want to play on a potato-level smartphone or laptop, you can. Just like you can with PS Now already.
    This might be an entry drug to streaming and actually it is more pragmatic than what you'd expect from Microsoft and Sony, who might release extra hardware to keep relevant. What Google pulls here, however, is nothing more than providing a platform to access from whichever device you prefer. It's not like this is new, but it might be the most serious attempt at that yet, because they can even add it to their already existing infrastructure of software.

    Since all this will enable lots of people to try it out from the get go, it might in the worst case (from a consumer perspective) even become main... stream.

    So, please, fellows, stay strong and hold against it! For the future of gaming!

    There is no way to pack game with all of this - for example game updates, but that thing was old days when only revisions of game surfaces on game card to market.

    This could be good... but we have to manage our expectations and know that what they are showing is a proof of concept. The final product will be maybe a 1/4 of what you saw today with other limitations.

    If it's optional, why not? It's no replacement for regular downloads, but for those people who don't have a decent PC and might want to play a game here and there, it's likely a lot cheaper than buying a 1000$ machine.

    I'm actually quite excited about this. It could end up becoming a nice to play titles I'd otherwise not be able to play due to hardware constraints.

    It will most likely be suscription-based... Which may or not be a bad thing.

    I don't see how that would not be a bad thing as it means you will never own anything on that platform.

    Imho, owning the games is not that important. I rarely come back to games after some years. It's not bad if you have a "I already used it so it's cool" approach.

    But I know most people do not think that way tho.

    Hmm, Google making its own controller?? This could either go well or really terribly. Either option seems equally possible.

    I'm seeing the pricing model something like this:

    - 29.99/month for the service
    - 39.99-59.99/AAA game
    - 5.99-19.99/indie game

    And at the end of the month, what do you have to show for it? Literally nothing in your name.
