A lot of you are biased. You went in ready to hate it.

I was going in ready to like it, until it was revealed that it was streaming only.  I would have liked to have seen a piece of powerful hardware that also came with the option to stream your library. I'm not saying I'm NOT going to try this, but my excitement is definitely dampened a bit.

I like the controller though.  I'd buy that just as an extra PC controller.

Similar here, streaming is just not my thing. And like I said before, I'd like to hold that controller in my hands before I judge it, but it doesn't seem too bad right now (though I generally prefer asymmetric design)

I don't get the hate. This thing is insanely impressive looking. How they could transition from one device to the next to the next within seconds on devices that have no business running these games is just crazy awesome.

They believe by blindly hating Streamin consoles and mobile they can stop them. They are the future though regardless if they like it or not.

Streaming has some serious problems in its conception that regular physical (or even digital-only) consoles do not. That is not blind hate, that is just objective criticism.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

This may kill consoles as we know it.

... you guys do realize this was the core of the Xbox One when it was first announced right?

"the power of the cloud", remember?

Not just yet. There are still many barriers to overcome. 

-The lack of high speed internet in rural areas

-ISP's that have data caps

-ISP's that throttle connection speeds for streaming

-The latency is low enough for singleplayer gaming, but the latency will have a pretty big impact on multiplayer games, so you will still want to play those on a traditional console for sure

Wait for the pricetag.



So how many people do have the affortability of high speed internet inside or outside your home ? What's the point of owning one of these machines when most of the market already has consoles doing it natively with games not needing the constant connection ? Does this hinder the workout capacity of your phone ? How fast does this drain your batteries ? Will it even have a chance to compete against the already crowded smartphone games market ? What happens when the servers crash ?

Not without mentionning that they're basically offering a product you have no ownership over, no physical media and not even a permanent digital distribution market.

There's bound to be loads of problems
