pretty good input lag performance on DF's test there, keeping up with a local X1X (both running the game in 30fps)

 Keep in mind they were using a net connection that was 200MBps, that's 8 times faster than 200Mbps btw, so ... yeah around 16 times what I have right now.

no, they said in the video they don't know the Google connection in the Stadia test (but Google also offered a 15Mb mode to test subpar conditions) and their test with Project Stream at home was on a 200Mb connection

At the 12 minute mark on screen it says 200MBPS but he does say what sounds like MegaBits in the audio so it's either confusing text by all using caps or what he says is incorrect. Either way that's still double my current connection and that's a connection which I've got because I have a ton of tech to make use of it.

Are they really gunning for the customer who has a 200Mb connection but only has it for their ipad or laptop with no graphics card? does that customer exist in a lot of places? I would think the ones with the net fast enough to make use of this would already have some hardware at the end of that connection capable of gaming.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Unfortunately streaming and cloud based games as service are the future of gaming. I don't like it one bit.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

I have no idea what aspect of my post you are replying to, nor what "15mbs" is.

and.... You're welcome? as neither the video producer or the OP I don't see why you offer this thanks though!

Clearly everything seeing as with the 15mb test its barely behind a xb1x. Which is showed at the 12.47 minute mark!

And?

Are you saying that's the customer they're aiming for? 

It might be different in the rest of the world but the slower connections like the 2MBps lines would have drastic data caps which limit users to 480p streaming at best if using things like YouTube for any length of time. 

Can't imagine that being a really xbox1x rival in terms of fidelity with incurring huge fees for bandwidth.

Stop grasping at straws pls 

Edit misread yes going from 200 towards 400 is indeed 20 euro more expensive

He in Brazil, most home internet providers have no data caps no matter which speed you choose, no caps. Only mobile internet services have this..



According to the quartering, the service will be like steam: you need to buy a game and you will able stream it as long as you are alive.
