wouldn’t be surprised if it’s cloud-based gaming, like streaming games from the cloud to yr pc for u to play them; it has to be that, rly
maybe next time i should read more than just the last post, but y, for sure, it’s the future, we knew it was coming, and this makes perfect sense for Google to just move in there and grab that; it’s going to be a fight between them and Amazon and then leftovers will be for Sony and Microsoft, but i wouldn’t be surprised if those get bought out by the other two eventually…
@Shalandir now i want to know what u have to say about this
it’s not gonna be a fight between anyone for the next decade with the shit connection the majority of the world has
MS and Sony both has this in the backburner too along with at least Ubi and EA, EA already said cloud gaming is what they are expecting gaming to move on to soon and preparing in that direction.
Either way it’s gonna be a total shit fest for a long while, not even talking about stuff like in the US with famous ISP services, but even here there are so many minor hickups, “intterupts”/data loss, that would cause the experience to be a “lesser” experience than a local lowgrade hardware cube compared.
How the fck people on 1gig can’t reliably stream a good damn movie is beyond me, but since that’s not a service there could apparently even be offered or promised “today”, i don’t expect any gaming service to be equally any better -and much worse because of the "live interaction"phenomenon
(and 5g is also “slowly” being rolled out inc 2024, yaay just in time for 7g)
PS how the heck did google manage to get a patent for the sony controller??
also, being a grump, i reaally, don’t hope a lot of people or “hyped consumers” jump on board with cloud gaming, “any time soon”… the levels of user control it strips is potentially super scary in my mind
even MS doing a purely “digital xbox” for no discs seems sorta off to me, even tho i don’t even use Xbox and it’s not that huge a leap being just sorta a little like steam/uplay on pc. And yet it had me lifting an eyebrow going “yaiks that don’t sound like it bodes well”
