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.

No thanks. Also why analyze specs?? If only internet speed is what matters.

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

I've read this post 5 times now and it still makes no sense to me.

Could you read it yourself Kirby and translate it into English for me (coherent English)



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

It is the future no doubt about it. It happened to news media, It happened to music, it happened to movies, it's inevitable for gaming. And sure, newspapers still exist, physical audio and video still exist, physical games and gaming hardware will also continue to exist. The majority will be streaming games. Mobile gaming has already overtaken all other forms combined in revenue. It's the biggest market and streaming games is aiming right for it.

I hope PSVR2 still gets to see the light of day with ps5 before streaming takes over.

Do you think google can't operate it for years with loss? Spotify is operating with loss since launch, and only now is starting to break even. Google won't mind support it with loss until it eventually wins the public in the future due to tech improvement and convenience.

Who said anything about it being a loss?

I got an email from google telling me to take all of my pictures, video, media etc that I wanted to keep off of Google + because after it shut down it wont be accessible.

How about how Google is already curtailing their plans on Google Fiber?

There are numerous instances of Google pulling the plug on projects that didn't succeed the way Google wanted them to. I don't see any reason why google would keep this on life support if it gains as much traction as google + did.
