Just going to repost what I said in the other thread....
I don't want this to take off, but I have to admit that USA internet speed averages around 24 mbps right now. Internet speeds are growing by 22% a year. So streaming could actually take off. The only downside to this is that the word average is misleading. If one person out of ten has ultra fast 100 mbps internet speed, and the other 9 have 15 mbps then the "average" speed comes out to around 24 mbps. Just for reference you need 9 mbps to reliably stream PS3 games on PS Now. So for 4K or 1080 you would need a lot more. I'm no tech junkie but I would imagine that since 1080p is about 2.5 times 720p then you'd need about 22 mbps to stream games in 1080p. But I suppose the casuals that this device is targeting won't really care about resolution. If they are willing to play on their phones, then they won't care if the resolution is 720p, or 1080p in a console generation where upscaled, or native 4K is pretty much guaranteed.
Something else to take into account is how many regular internet users in each home? It's one thing if your the only one streaming, while somebody else is just light surfing or whatever, but what about when there's 2 or 3 people bogging things down? Netflix + Stradia + Xcloud , etc. It's going to be a long, long, time before game streaming services really start to see worthwhile growth. The main reason Netflix has seen such growth, is because it's TV and movies, plus it was the first big paid streaming service and had little competition as well as streaming period.
