(Opinion) About cloud gaming
Written by: NeoPGX - 23:17 Mar-22-2019

Personally I don't give a crap about it and I honestly hope the whole cloud gaming concept fails miserably. I don't even want to exist as an option for people. Locally stored copies is the way to go.

This is an opinion I will take all the way to the grave. For you doubters out there, I have had people say the same thing to me about Star Wars Battlefront and guess what? I still don't care about either of the two newer games. If anyone wants to know why, I will make a separate blog.

Hate it… first they took our games/software away from us, now they are taking they are trying to take away our hardware from us… screw them.


Also, it will have high lag until all the different latencies are reduced to sub 5ms, and even then it will be around 80-100ms, even though that's not a big problem, but currently it won't be very good. Hell, I've tried the PS4 remote play on the same router(LAN 1Gbps) and it was lagging… -_-


But again even if it's perfect, I'm against it…

"now they are trying to take our hardware away from us"


I highly doubt that much but I do agree with everything else you said. The technology isn't quite here yet but like you I would still be opposed to it.


They say "never say never" but this is one of few times where I will have to disagree with that as well.

I mean don't look at me and you, look at the next generations… and these cloud boxes would be super cheap so parents would easily get them for their kids, over a 300-500$ console or a gaming PC… so the market is there…
These cloud boxes wll be 100$ tops imo.


Just like kids think micro-transactions are normal nowadays… so sad…

… Honestly, I don't see how anyone can see those cloud boxes as saving them a lot of money in the long run. Because even then you still have to pay additional money (either per month or annually) just be able to play any game. Whereas with a traditional set up, you only need to buy the game once (unless it gets damaged) and play it anytime you like with no lag, guaranteed.
