So many are blinded.. IT is about the money.. Corporate call it going forward but at the end of the day it is Ohh.. we lost mega money on that, yet when you check the market they are profiting still, just not getting what they wanted in projections.

The consumers are like impulsive cattle running to consume whatever sounds cool.. to be the first to have it.. Yet they pull this about streaming, and then the ISP are not wanting to provide the higher bandwidth, poor populated areas suffer since demographically ISP won't put in the Fiber boxes to the door, yet they have to to there nodes.

So they want you to stream at 4k yet the ISP can't keep up. This is only good in the larger ares that have better speeds. I know the bandwidth is here in my area but they just won't open it up.

Gaming well I think it will be the same as the services now. I am sure it will proprietary somehow so they can sell your info and so forth.

We see the trend that it is out of control. Cell companies, Console games companies, PC component companies are all racing to get the product out before the other and AGAIN the consumer impulsively buys it only to find it is defective in one or more ways.

Where has the stability gone? You have countries manipulating hardware in order to spy or gather what have ya, App that want to just about run your lives.. What more can we ask for!

I feel like the industry is going to go this way, and I'm kind of sad about it... Anytime Monthly fees have been introduced to games, I've stopped playing them. I can't seem to justify paying monthly for a game. I haven't even bit the bullet for music or video streaming yet either. Only monthly fees I'll pay are utilities, Rent/Mortgage, Cable/Internet.

This news is bound to not be taken well by OCN. I mean, it basically takes away a good chunk of our purpose.

I'm honestly not terribly worried, though. Big AAA gaming can pack up and go to the cloud for all I care.

As long as it isn't illegal to own your own hardware and code on it, there will still be games to satisfy my hobby.

My main machine may be some evolution of the Raspberry Pi a few decades from now, though :-)

Who knows what the future holds.

I could see this being nice for weaker games that don't need demanding hardware.

I'm hoping Amazon will come out with something similar included with Prime. They created a game studio a while back and headhunted some top tier talent. We have yet to see any relevant fruit from that though.

It's dumb, but like most dumb things it will probably catch on.

Lol we used to have the same discussions regarding the streaming of content here a decade ago, e.g. audio/video and how stupid that would be, software as a service, paid sub model for everything, etc. Fast forward to now, there's a tiny handful that still think it's dumb but everybody else is on the streaming/sub wagon.

In any case, Google isn't unveiling a store front; they're launching a game streaming service. Your suggestion of downloading games to run them on your hardware makes absolutely no sense.
Its okay if you doubt that and I won't be able to tell in every game that is for sure, but I played Counter Strike for years on a very high level and I could notice if my fps changed. It is not necessarily a visual thing but more of a feeling especially related to recoil and mouse movement.

In modern games or games that are slower paced I probably can't tell the difference yeah.
