Steam - There's a sale on

Anyone else just get an invite to the Steam streaming beta? Going to give it a go when I get home, quite excited!

I got my invite through earlier and within two minutes I was streaming my gaming PC upstairs on my Mac Mini in the living room.

It's very impressive indeed and beyond the expectations i had for the service. The picture quality is fantastic and lag is minimal.

My PS4 is suddenly looking a little redundant.

Saw Electronic Super Joy was just over a quid so gave it a go, and it's been a fun and infuriating platformer so far, especially when you're trying to chase down the Pope who's in a fucking spaceship before you start having a go at him with rocket launchers. He's such a dick. But he's dead now.

Gah, I'm stuck at work and clucking to get home and see what it's like!

Unfortunately my telly is only 720p but I'm really interested to see how my laptop manages Tomb Raider on Ultra :D

The streaming is really impressive. I'm using a fairly pants Samsung RV520 laptop over wifi and bar the occasional audio glitch everything is really smooth with only a tiny amount of noticeable input lag. I wouldn't play any twitch aiming games over it, but for stuff you can control with a joypad it's great. I think it's definitely going to be worth me building a tiny little cube PC to stream games onto every now and then.

Anything you look at in your library which isn't installed on the machine you're on has options like this:

There is a petition started on Neogaf to convince Sega to bring ports of Bayonetta, Vanquish, Virtua Fighter 5 to PC. Maybe a waste of time but no harm in signing and showing support. Dark Souls was petitioned I believe so you never know. I've signed up.

Those of you in the beta for streaming, did you join the group first or did the invite just come out of the blue?

You have to join the group

Yep, joined the group. You also have to be using the beta Steam client to actually use the streaming, but that was specified in the invite.
