Sony and MS can't do something as versatile as this. Especially Sony.
I think Nintendo will fair better, because all of their power comes from within. But Sony and Microsoft have a huge threat to face, and they don't have the DNA and resources to tackle this 100%. Sony in particular, might be fucked.
The vision is gaming evolved in itself, 5 seconds to play without any download.
The ability to click on a YouTube video and play said game, truly brilliant stuff on paper and most interesting thing that has happen in the last couple of decade with gaming IMO.
Also wondering about this. They didn't say anything about fees or how games are sold.No pricing, no explaining packages, do you have to buy games... is it rental? (I didn't hear anything as how this will actually work) Is there a dashboard?

Google themselves will have to monetize it somehow consider they are offering up the computing resources. Either through subscription or ads.
I get it is GDC but if you want to constantly talk about connecting gamers... Tell the gamers the price maybe?
Also, I'm pretty skeptical. The video stream had several errors in just an hour long stream. A video stream is far less demanding too... Like I said, I'm skeptical.
Some neat features though for sure.
The good thing is, this is going to force Sony to upgrade PS NOW. Maybe they can upgrade their stream to 1080p outside of the ps3 games that can’t be streamed on a diff platform cuz it runs on the cell.
If they upgrade PS NOW they can compete.
Google has to make money somehow; no one will buy their controller. I understand this could squeeze aditional revenue from youtube but surely thats not enough. Id have to assume theres a monthly service charge. You dont buy a Netflix box, you pay for the service. Id have to expect atleast $9.99 a month which is more than a console over its life
Im sure they will take a cut from the store but they already said that that their ads will be able to go from ad to playing in 5 seconds. So they will increase their ads presesnce.
