    Was Phil Harrison always so joyless and soulless?

    "I'm thrilled to announce" with the tone of something who just found out they have terminal cancer.

    Some dudes on resetter that tried the project stream said that latency was noticeable but not bad at all but there was loads of compression and a fuzzy image.

    Here we go, on about "watching games" again.

    So they have no games to announce. Just that there should be games at some point.

    It's all quite interesting. Is there any word on the payment model? I'm assuming it's effectively a subscription service, but does that include all the games like Netflix?
    No info yet, will be more info in "summer".

    Not a single word on that. All the buttons said "Play Now"

    If this is as good as they said it's a game changer for sure

    What a great choice of word "influencers" is.

    I'm not even kidding, it tells me exactly what I need to know about these cunts. Well done, all concerned.

    Seems like great solution for people that can't afford a console, but those are also the people that will have the shittiest internet connection. Bandwidth caps are going to be an issue.

    I don't know about you lot, but I have become aware in the last few years that much like my music taste, my gaming taste is increasingly out of sync with what the youth seem to be into. And this makes me wonder if I'm even going to be able to play the next generations of 'consoles' (or whatever form gaming is now going to take).

    There's lots to like about it, and a subscription based platform-agnostic gaming service sounds awesome, but if it's about influencers and streaming and multiplayer and e-sports and F2P and loot boxes and whatever the fuck else, I think I might be out.

    4K 60FPS streaming via WIFI?

    Is it me or does that just not seem that likely in a reliable manner?
  • Deleted user 19 March 2019 18:41:27
    @You-can-call-me-kal judging by that presentation it will be. I feel completely out of touch with gaming too, everything that's mega popular nowadays looks appalling to me.


    I'll wait for the Wethers OriginalStation.

    It definitely feels like gaming is splitting. Traditional stuff that's aimed at older gamers and stuff like fortnight for the yoof. There's still a huge amount of money to be made out of 30 something gamers so I don't think it's anything to worry about.

    Been coming for a while, to be honest. First signs for me were this utterly alien fascination with watching rather than playing.
    I'll probably just end up modding the hell out of any old consoles I can find and filling them up, or mameing it. I have more than enough old games to play, and gaming for me will just become finding new ways to play them...
    Probably the only way I'll ever get a switch.

    I'm rooting for MS to sort the Xbox as Netflix thing out. I'd happily dump consoles for something I can stream to an iPad or whatever.

    The part that interests me is that the controller is connected to the data centre, rather than connecting to the local workstation. Obviously wonít do that if you use some other random USB controller, but itís an interesting way to address responsiveness.

    Not sure how that affects responsiveness as it's still having to use the internet to move that signal. I can't see that it's any different to having it connect locally and then moved across the net.

    The whole concept lives and dies on decent internet and I am not sure people have good enough connections for this to take off.

    Geforce now works pretty good for me.

    I have no desire to ever own another console or RIG so this interests me greatly

    It'll be PC game streaming surely.

    Edit: Oh i see, no it wont.

    Also urgh

    One thing that surprises me now that we know of Stadia's spec is the decision to cap at 30 frames per second. With a 10.7TF graphics core and fast, server-class CPU, we would expect the Stadia port of Assassin's Creed Odyssey to run at 60fps. Based on the results we're seeing here running the PC version at 60fps, latency should drop by 33ms. The Xbox One X version is already bafflingly high in latency terms, to the point where Stadia can match it. Based on the PC results, running at full frame-rate would actually see the streaming version surpass the Xbox game.
    30fps??

    If I'm reading right the digital foundry article is suggesting 30 ms extra lag over a 30fps PC game.

    That's dependant on the quality of the connection. The internet in the UK isn't the best and the whole service is relying on good latency and decent speeds. There is also the issue of data caps as 4k streaming eats through data like nobodies business.

    Just don't see it being a success at this point in time.

    Do we even have the infrastructure for this in the UK or Europe? I tried to stream from my PS4 to my phone via wifi and it was rubbish. I even tried that PSTV (which I returned) to play in a different room in my house and it bearly worked.

    This seems like an amazing idea that is going to live or die on people's net connections, which, in the UK can be pretty flaky.

    Thank God nobody ever asks you fucking nerds about innovations.

    Yes, it will need a good internet connection. Don't you cunts have fibre
