Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Google will be releasing a console-less gaming service that uses the cloud for processing. Discuss here if you think this is the trend for the future, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

with input lagg getting quite close to local hardware, they might be on to something.
Cost of entry for 4k60fps is now 20$? a month instead of a single 1600$ or more investment+cost for addition games.

only downside = you need a good internet connection, so basically only 1st world countries (based on my current world view: the EU, UAE?, USA, JPN, AUS(south-east), SouthAFR, maby south west RUS, South korea, china?, CAN, BRAZ?, SWE+NOR+DEN+FIN) can mass adopt, im talking 75+% of the population.

The problem I never see anyone talking about is scaling the infrastructure. Broadcasting sites like YouTube and Twitch have a 5-10 second lag on live streams, depending on their load. That's the side effect of their scale. We don't mind that delay and their size makes the process of receiving a video, transcoding it, and pushing it out the door take time. Now Google (owner of YouTube), Amazon (owner of Twitch), and Microsoft (owner of sadness) want to tell us they can add a 3D rendering step in between that process? And take less than 250ms? And with minimal compression losses? And be cheaper than a console? And be profitable? How?

if they can get it to around 50~100ms, well damn

Google is big enough, and if they pipe that service in UDP/IP format, they might be able to pull it off. Then again this is Google, the largest data collection agency in the world, except maybe for the NSA. I am sure their privacy policy for Stadia is very exclusive (ha ha). I wonder if the absence of net neutrality could come back to bite Google.

In case it is not obvious, I am no fan of Google.

Anyway, happy computing!
