If Google isn't downright bullshitting this is fucking sci fi.

Split screen local multiplayer at 4K AND 60 fps.

edit: apparently they eventually plan for 8K and 120 fps!?

It has more lag than the Xbox One, and almost more than 80 ms of lag compared to a mid range PC. It's really atrocious.

And the video streaming is done by Youtube:story::story: Sorry but I don't want to play games with this level of compression and artifacts.

This is a big no for me.

Digital Foundry are a bunch of shills too so you can guarantee these are highly cherry-picked results.
 

Glad I couldn't help

This'll go the same way as Google+, Google Buzz, Google Reader, Google Help, Google Glass.... When was the last time they came up with a genuinely decent product? Google docs?
Google/Alphabet are a couple of massive monopolies (Search, Advertising, YouTube, Android, etc.) along with a bunch of failed product that are initially funded with the money from the monopolies but are dropped as they are revealed to be failures.

It's not all that dissimilar from how Microsoft works.

They should make GooglePorn to compete with PornHub.

In other words, Google has a new service to increase your dependence on Google. In order to play your games, you need to continue to have a Google account and a fast enough Internet connection.

No thank you.
Google is your Friend. Not trusting Friend Google is treason. Treason is punishable by death.

Friend Google is always watching. Friend Google is always listening.

If doesnt come with exclusives, i think they only announce AC Odyssey and Doom Eternal but both of them you can play it on the NVIDIA streaming service, or in your PC, that imo is the better choice if you have to pay gorillion dollars in bandwitch

Very friendly reminder for these numbers as well, a number as small as 20 frames is huge for many games (Shooters, Fighting Games, etc).

SFV Online mode (not streaming) had an average delay of 92 MS on release and was considered to be hot garbage for that reason.

Unless I'm misunderstanding, streaming delay would be added on top of input delay (as you would input the command, it would take $stream delay to reach the game, and then $input delay for the action to happen) which means using our SFV example it would take a borderline shitty 92 MS and turn that into a full 258MS delay (or even more for worse connections).

This is also assuming a perfect connection that is never interrupted or slowed down (I can't imagine trying to stream a game during "Netflix Time", for example) and games cannot be buffered like movies/music can.

What games could really be played like this? You can rule out virtually any online game (unless said game is hosted by google), any fighting game, any shooter, games with short QTEs or time sensitive dialogue options. I can barely imagine trying to play Skyrim on a .25 second delay, much less anything new.

The only thing I can think of would be a turn based RPG like Darkest Dungeon, but there aren't many of those.

Not only that, but how can you create or use mods on games you don't have actually installed? Skyrim as an example; there's tons of mods that make that game more worth playing (same for FO3, FO:NV, etc) or even games that generally just use community created content (TF2).

TL;DR It's a gay cloud-based Steam competitor that'll go fucking nowhere because most people outside of Seoul or Tokyo probably don't have big boy internet connections capable of downloading 100GB in an hour

It's like they're basing this off of what ISP's tell you your speed could be (outside of peak hours, on a full moon, when 3/4 quarters of the people in your area are dead, and after making an acceptable sacrifice to Baal) instead of what most American's actually get as ul/dl speeds.

Plus if you only have wifi, the speeds are even slower.
