There are so many game streaming services popping up, with so many idiosyncrasies, that it’s hard to keep it all straight. In this video, James takes Linus through a tour testing GeForce Now, Google Stadia, Microsoft Project Xcloud, and Sony PlayStation Now to see which one makes the most sense...except we didn't try Shadow.

The crazy thing is I play single player and multiplayer games on GeForce now with a ping of over 200 ( mainly because I am in india and closest server is in Europe) but with a good enough internet connection (100mbps connection), I still get a decent gaming experience. Like my fortnight match is like 7 to 8 kills(it doesn't include default skins) with that ping .

Any streaming service where you don’t have to actually buy the game is ok. Basically xcloud and psnow. Stadia can fuck off

Personally would prefer (approach): mine steam library over nVidia, but there are this blacklisting issue. Steam had/has something similar: steam-play and steam-link. Yeah, you can play "A Plague Tale: Innocence" from your Steam library with your Android or RaspberryPi via Steam Play app, for free*, as long as you want. *Difference being: instead renting powerful enough "PC", you must have to own/provide one yourself, with good enough connection. Being tested this out, it works really well too (also with physical controllers). Having stated so, I do not currently use the feature, as playing on phone simply doesn't fit with mine taste nor current lifestyle. But planning to do so with next PC : headless noisy leaf-blower beast heating the other room, while enjoying mine media(games) without interference and quietness afterwards.

Those services seem to be designed for Estonians, whom have no issues with 4G connection (even in some random swamp thanks to 99% coverage) with unlimited speed/data/time for around 20~15€ per month or (less than) half of it with good deal (even free from some months to a year). As for hard wired goes, there are projects under development do fully cover the whole country with optical cables .Think but instead of couple of cities, every single house in country. All rural areas included. But you would still be paying for the "last mile" + monthly fee for ISP (which must compete with 4G/5G prices). Plus having personal smartphone has become almost a requirement for citizenship (including children): On the downside, I'd assume none of the providers would have any local servers (well maybe MS(Skype?) and Google). 1. fun fact: Pärnu city land area is currently bigger than New York ;-p 2. 3 decades ago it were huge deal if there were single phone for several villages (privileged luxury item).

I like Nvidia shield best, from the get-go. You own the games, no subscription. BUT, and a BIG but... Here, in South-Africa, the shield pro costs as much as a console and as much as a decent second-hand PC (maybe as new as intel gen 7). What's the point then? Our physical tech, i.e. PCs, cameras, etc, are STOOPID expensive, compared to our salaries. Not to mention our prohibitive internet costs... ALL in all, for someone here, to pay for fast enough internet, own everything you need AND be in a safe enough location so as not to worry too much about theft, etc., we, as GAMERS, are on AVERAGE screwed XD Have been for the longest time. HOW do you enjoy a game, if you had to go into gut-wrenching debt just to play? Most of our gamers this side, with the "set-ups', are either breaking their backs, in debt, or some other unseen hurdle to overcome. So, yeah, adding a subscription on top of that, would be most heartless and cruel...

This is the future. And it will force developers to update their games in order for people to keep playing their games. No one wants to play a hacked crack house. Also it will force games to become virtually free and depend on battle passes for most profit so again... they don’t neglect their game after a year. These days companies create games, neglect them after a year and it just gets ruined by hackers yet you still have to pay $50 just to figure that out...

@video title: i sure hope not cause the very concept is idiotic. plus there's the argument regarding ownership and the act of purchasing things... . with video game streaming you are paying to purchase nothing and get nothing of tangible value in return for your money's not even renting anything. it's literally donating money to a company for permission to access their servers and that permission can be revoked at any time for any reason. . while with steam, gog, and irl still purchase things and own the things you purchase. PLUS thanks to digital piracy you can go and download backup copies of a great many games you may have bought. backup copies. except for gog's case as they give you an installer to begin with with no drm or any other strings attached. . with video game streaming this doesn't happen and you get...nothing of tangible value for your money. you're just donating money for an empty promise.

I think most of the problems on the xcloud occurred because of the phone (I played the xcloud on both a low end and high end phone) on the low end phone it was nearly impossible to play as it’d always screen tear (take note that this was like a $70 ZTE phone so can’t blame it) and on the higher end phone there wasn’t any tearing at all or anything

I have a really fast internet connection, the only caveat is that rats chewing on the fiber-optic cable 3 miles from my home, causing downtimes is not as uncommon as you'd think. And I bet there are no data centres in my country, so it's not just local rats that I'd have to worry about. So fuck them. Game streaming can die in a fiery pit of hell.

I played G force now when it was in beta a few times and even on moderate 30mbs internet it was pretty decent at 720p. I was playing that ninja platform game and it was completely playable, any kind of lag really had no affect on a platformer. I was pretty impressed. Turned it up to 1080p and it would start to glitch out and 4k was like a slide show.

No, you don't have to use a Stadia controller to play any Stadia game. I use a wired Xbox One pad on my pc to play Stadia games, and it work's flawlessly. Tried and tested on Borderlands 3, Rage 2 and Elder Scrolls Online. All you need is the Stadia App from the app store and an internet connection, as well as a machine, any machine, that can run Google Chrome scene as it's all done through your internet browser.

I tried Xbox Game Pass, and mostly liked it. The only problem is that my laptop has a 128 GB SSD, and I use an external 2TB HDD for stuff like games. It seems impossible for me to use Game Pass's app to download directly to my 2TB HDD. To download a 62 GB game on Game Pass, my computer would use the Page File, which relies on my local storage. Ultimately, when I tried installing a AAA game onto my HDD through Game Pass, it couldn't do it because my local storage space wasn't large enough to temporarily store the download. Bear in mind, I'd already set it to download to my HDD, not my SDD.That's why I discontinued my subscription shortly thereafter, since I could get the same games through an alternative source, and not be limited by an unrelated storage device.

It's just better to have your cpu & gpu or even ARM cores present to do the work where your located. You wouldn't even need a harddrive on a cable box. Your smart phone runs all apps on the same arm core processing. Imagine trying to log into an Australia desktop when your smart phone is literally in your hand.

If anything of a streaming service should be more like a loading firmware platform like a cable box. Your save data & collection could be else where like a server acting as catch ready to be loaded at home.

I don't even understand who this is supposed to be for. It's not for the budget gamers as they wouldn't want to sign up to a subscription service, and it's also not for the rich kid gamers as they already have the best devices to be able to use their own machines. I can only really see a benefit if you're living in a van or an RV, or moving around the country a lot. The energy savings could definitely be worth it. It's unlikely for you to have great connection though in those circumstances.

@Tyler Hodges I'd certainly say so. That tour Linus did back in 2018 was showing some pretty amazing stuff. Especially since, from Shadow's platform, you have good prices for good specs, and the fact that, like he mentioned, you can use i as just a standard Windows desktop, if you'd like. That'll be nice for future Mac machines, since they are doing away with Bootcamp as "Apple Silicon" takes over Macs, during the next 2 years!

Project xCloud allows you to stream all Game Pass games if you have the Ultimate subscription (with both Xbox Live and Game Pass subscriptions in one.) It also has console streaming where you can stream the games from your console(your console will be running the games) to your phone. I'm pretty sure it works over the internet since it said that you'll get the best experience with Wi-Fi, though I haven't tested that yet so I'm not sure. It pretty much just screen mirroring on your phone of your Xbox, meaning you can fully control your Xbox through it. Backwards compatibility doesn't work however.
