Seeing the reviews and how it works it will fail and I will be greatfull if that happens. In my opinion the system is not ready, neither the infrastructure in some countries, as I said a lot of times, this system to succed it needs to work for everyone, not only those with good ping and speed conections. Still thinking this is focused to those casual gamers who arrive from work, not wanting at all to bother with installations or technical problems, and here I put togheter pc and console players. Because yes, those ppl exists too on pc.
Maybe all of this ppl dont really care in transforming their entertaiment to suscription like netflix and lose the control over their games. I do, sorry, for me its not like watching anime, movies or shows wich I do occasionally, its my hobby and sometimes I like to revisit old games or try to mod them. Old Doom modding comunity is still very much alive because of this, we will lose this in the future if this system becomes the standar.
Besides this, I really dont like the bussiness behind the “streamed games”, long ago we did worry about the lose of control over what we buy or not when the digital came to stay. Yes steam is a platform that can dissapear, but thats not very likely at the moment, neither the big ones. Yes you are buying licenses to use the product or game, the game in reallity is not yours. But with streaming¿? you lose more control, no data, just your saves on the cloud or computer plus, no modding, probably less options to config things on the game (anyway looking the reviews the games looked a lot blurry so). If the platform dissapears, and google like to kill his inventions a lot, you will lose every game there if they dont bring any solution,. At least with steam we have games free DRM (yes I didnt know but, it seems there are games DRM free that works perfectly without steam) and we have gog.com and gog connect. Oh or if an old game is not worth to be kept on the servers can be deleted, but thats a minor for casuals if they are more interested only in new releases, resume: Netflix (Always hate when netflix had the page from an old movie but cant be watched)
As a player that considers games as a hobby this system as standar on the gaming industry is a big no for me, as an option for those casual gamers¿? Im ok with that. Plus I like hardware in general, it will be pretty rare if companies like nvidia, amd, asus or anyone stop to sell us products to supply google for their machines. Hardware building comunity is raising.
Long post sorry, and sorry again if my english had mistakes, is not my native language
