    Microsoft’s xCloud Game Streaming Service

    All he's saying is they're going to take some of the techniques for doing multiplayer and applying it to how they manage input from the user. That's pretty much his last sentence. Not sure how much more straightforward he could put it. Whether that's just marketing talk or actual stuff they can point to when they launch is another thing.
  2. Some form of Tempest for a change.

    Horizon Zero Dawn

    This is the sort of bullshit that makes me buy cross platform stuff on Xbox. On that platform it doesn't matter. Hell it doesn't even matter what region you bought on. I ran into the same thing with Bloodborne. Hopefully they'll change it for PS5.

    Sekiro Official PC Specs.

    https://www.tweaktown.com/news/64786/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-official-pc-specs-announced/index.html GTX 760. Nice! I think I have 770. Soon to be replaced but good to know I'm still JUST about in.

    Xbox one recommendations.

    EA Access (£20 for a year) for a crap tonne of EA published Xbox One and Xbox 360 games. Plus 20 hours trial on every game they launch. I think it's pretty cool .
  7. They're free to continue selling physical or not joining in with streaming. Capitalism will decide if that makes them more money or not. Will be an interesting few years that's for sure.
  8. They'll still have the option to sell the games rather than stream. Well they will on every platform other than Google. Streaming isn't the only revenue source. And even if it ultimately heads that way maybe more people getting a slice of the pie is better than 10 games being profitable and the rest a losss or whatever that stat was from a while back.
  9. :D. I'm sure you can get wifi on the underground. At least I'm sure I have when in zone 1 and 2. Surely that simplicity argument the same as people trying to stream Netflix in places they can't get reception?
  10. I think the lower the barrier to entry, the bigger the potential market. Previously you needed a console. Now you can play games on your phone/tablet and the the number of players has shot up. Streaming carries that on and MIGHT mean that you can start to get gaming on lower spec hardware. If we no longer need to upgrade the client side then maaaybe we might get people willing to try gaming out a bit more. Maybe.
  11. Ok, so not sure how valid this comparison is but that's akin to saying that not enough people were interested in streaming movies/tv shows and paying a subscription when they could watch free to air channels already. yet here we are with Netflix & Amazon Prime doing well and lot of others like Disney scrambling to join in.
  12. lag notwithstanding, I think if the subscription is cheap enough then you can balance out the care enough about games side. If games are your major hobby then you're more willing to pay out more per month. If you said to a "casual" £5 a month will get you hundreds of games I think a big chunk would be in on that . Netflix and other similar subscriptions have shown that lots of people like to watch some good stuff but are also happy to consume whatever ends up on the service.
  13. It's going to be great for the 80% of the population that don't care, can compensate for or notice lag as much as some on here. Bring. It. On.
