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 only thing holding PSNow back from true glory is the lack of clients. Abso-fuckin-lutely no reason why Sony can't get their shit together and publish an Android or Mac/Linux client.

for anyone wandering what companies blacklisted their games from geforce now here you go: Capcom, Rockstar, Blizzard, Activision, Square Enix, Bethesda, 2k

looks ok, no blocky artifacts... we do have badass internet though. Yeah I'd be shocked if you had any network issues with your 10 gigabit connection... in my area we have decent connections and we are LUCKY to be able to get to 0.3 gigabits per second (300 some megabits per second). Though we are fortunate to have connections that fast because I know of people in my circles that due to their location no amount of money can get them decent internet that isn't beat in speed, cost, reliability, etc at the same time by a decent cell phone plan (and we have some of the worst phone plan prices in the country if not the world). Nah, keep the streaming, I hate that jelly feeling and would rather just use my PC. I understand where it would be handy to have a streaming service but it's also a sign of the times (everything goes to the cloud, you own nothing) which I think is dangerous and just a bad idea since we already gave up physical ownership long ago for digital downloads.

I really wanted to play the last of us so I setup ps now but it was unplayable. Horrible fps, slow loading times and input lag. Geforce now was the best streaming experience I have gotten but it doesn't have that many games.

Fun fact: a while back, you could launch a game in geforce now that popped a “no controller support” warning, then navigate through the steam menu and install any game in your library (in seconds- data center conn + cache) and play it. Now that it’s out of beta, it won’t launch anything that isn’t the game you launched from the GFN menu. /shrug

Good Video, but i dont think, That much people wanna stream with Delay. I mean lets say in 10 years everyone on earth have Internet with 1ms Ping then ok but even if i pay more for a pc Gaming rig, i like it to have my own power under the Table. And of course i can do what i want especially pay what i want.

Main reason I stopped my stadia subscription was not game options, but was very slight latency from controller to game. It bothered me very much in destiny and other FPS games. This is something I have also experienced while using Blade’s Shadow. Haven’t tried GeForce Now. I am very pro cloud gaming but I just keep going back to my Xbox/ PC.

PlayStation Now isn’t really meant for newer multiplayer games. It’s Sony’s answer to backwards compatibility for older games. I have PlayStation Now mainly to play old ps2 and ps3 games because my ps3 has started to defect and crash. It’s hands down the best game-streaming service, ever more so for veteran-game players

If anybody that is interested in something like this the best one is shadow pc, it’s like having a pc inside your pc, is the best one yet it does cost a bit more around 15 a month, but it is the best one and this year they are releasing new tears

Another thing to note about Playstation Now, is that any supported PS2 Classics and PS4 games available on the service are also available for direct download on PS4 consoles.

Had not played games since I was in high school 12 years ago, bought stadia founders. Its fine, not a high end gaming machine and honestly their biggest misstep was marketing towards dedicated gamers. As long as they keep adding new games Ill keep playing.
Vision33r Il y a 14 heures
I don't think game streaming old games make any sense. It's the huge newer games that will benefit. Many new games that takes a long time to download and install not to mention higher hardware requirements.

There was a paper that guide the PS2 development. That paper said a multimedia device must have a very very low latency as a primary attribute . That's why this streamming solutions are all suboptimal solutions . We have a class of games which integrate network features but they always use a local client to avoid network latency . Only when latency will be low enough , this solutions could be feasable . 50ms ( in the best projection) is not good enough.

Right off the bat. Geforce Now with a Samsung phone using a usb multi-port hub, a keyboard, mouse, or controller, and a nice size screen is the best way to go hands down. Xcloud performs well with same setup as well.

This same promise comes around every few years....we call it the "thin client". Its a useful tool that people have been claiming is going to replace everything, on and off, for literal decades now.

Stadia is SSHIT,GeForce Now is actually a very nice option for when you don't have the horses necessary to run a game but you own it and want to play it,let's say you got a game as a gift but don't have the GPU for it or you have the game but recently your GPU died and you stay on integrated graphics on your PC until your new one arrives or something,you can use GeForce Now to play the game,even tho i hate game streaming i do give GeForce Now the benefit of the doubt,i would be willing to even give it a try,too bad there are some companies stupid enough to ban their games from being streamed on this service XD,this service pretty much enables ppl without a good system to play the very expensive new games that NEED a good system therefore increasing the sales for those very expensive games,its pretty much free advertisment if you think about it,and stupid greedy companies are like "Nope,we won't let ppl play our games on your system even tho that would increase our sales and our incomes" =)))))))))))))),i swear to God creediness makes ppl dumber than actual rocks XD

Should you stream games? No. The end. ether Buy a PC and play steam games(or epic/origin.. but yea maybe not those), or buy a console and play your console games. fuck re-buying games you own, and screw unnecessary latency from platform choice.

How can they be milking gamers for more money when you have to own the game to play it on Geforce Now? You're not going to buy a game twice.

Geforce now was my go to, until developers started pulling games. Unfortunate situation that they can’t do anything about it unless they switch to a whole windows VM platform like Shadow.

Did you REALLY try them all? No, no you didn't. You couldn't test the best of the bunch, Shadow, because they don't offer it up in Canuckistan yet. I have a couple of their VMs for my daughters and I've played on them myself, they've done an amazing job with the streaming technology to provide top-notch graphics quality and no perceivable lag at all. I highly recommend checking Shadow out if/when it becomes available for you.
