I don't think Stadia caused much concern.

Sony gave up and admitted they can’t do online infrastructure.
It’s amazing how cultural trends affect global business. The Americans are masters of digital networking, controlling the flow of online data is like a 21st century version of the Oil industry.

From now on as soon as people start streaming Playstation content they’ll be on a Microsoft platform. Microsoft turned Sony from a competitor into a customer, I’m sure the shareholders are very pleased.

Hard to make anti-monopoly laws stick when there's one or more competitors.

better start getting those azure certs if you haven't yet boyz

as to the topic -

streaming content is here to stay/come. Anyone with a shield has likely tinkered with it on and off for the last two years as NV's given us free titles to derp around in.

It'll be a side-feature for now, and eventually become its own low end SKU in the form of game subs, and a possible "thin client" device on your end if you want the best possible streamed-in experience. It'll be the best bet for a large majority of gamers once you can't tell the difference between the two latency wise, or even before then if you look @ Netflix & its sub-par image quality :P

i feel like stories like this literally trigger epeen shrinky sensations in some folks pants. it's interesting.

unlikely since all three have their hand in the streaming games cookie jar. More likely MS gave them a better deal, not to mention better customer support. ALSO less possibility of waking up to no back end for your play station to rely on. Google also has zero game experience... Hey maybe in a few years it'll be the M$ony PlayBox3 Vs. Google-Game.

I love how no-one is willing to mention Apple as part of the gaming market.
It’s amazing how Apple could be so ignorant that even with billions of iOS devices in the world there is still room for Nintendo to be highly successful launching a dedicated gaming tablet.

Sony isn't in the business of doing online infrastructure at all. There are not many options when it comes to server hosting on this scale, and there is just no way to even entertain the idea that Sony could host streaming themselves. Microsoft is a good choice seeing that server hosting is pretty much what they do. Sony didn't give up on anything, doing their own infrastructure was never even within the realm of possibilities.
