Ubisoft brought Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Cloud Version exclusively to the Japanese Switch eShop this week.  The game is free to download with a 20-minute start.

I'd like to see a cloud service launched on Switch.

I'm sure these are just access to PC games and a viable way to experience single player games.

How is it viable? The lag must be atrocious.

If it could only be a part of Switch online service ...

Japan has better internet than most of the world, so I doubt it's too bad. Probably like 50-100ms.

Even 50-100ms is massive in an age of monitors that bear 4-5ms. Not saying Cloud is useless, but games require precision and it can't deliver this yet.

You say it has better internet... then say 50-100ms? Here in Ireland I have what I would consider mediocre internet and I play overwatch at around 16-20ms If it ever reached triple digits I would be restarting my router / contacting my ISP

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

It's my understanding that game streaming servers tend to have higher ping times than most games' multiplayer servers have. I seem to recall stories of people that get like 20ms ping playing multiplayer getting like 200 ms ping playing streaming games. So I'm saying that Japan probably gets like 1/4 to 1/2 that lag since they have good internet over there.  I could be totally wrong about that of course.

I know that I get anywhere between 20ms (Overwatch) and 120ms (Dead By Daylight), depending on the game and the quality of the servers (Dead by Daylight is pier to pier instead of having dedicated servers so I assume that is why my ping is so high there sometimes). I have yet to try a game streaming service to see how it compares to multiplayer gaming, I am hoping Google lets me into the beta for their new streaming service so I can test.

Was literally just about to say the same thing, I play Overwatch at 17ms on a good day, if I ever go above 30ms I can't even play McCree or Widow anymore, and if it goes over 50ms I can forget all about Doomfist and Reinhardt!

Also I'm not exactly on amazing internet either, I'm only with plusnet and average speeds at around 25-30mbps on a good day, lol 



Sadly, even though you can download it, you can’t play it unless you live in Japan.
