And, also, it seems that hardly ANYONE seems to want to give this service/system a CHANCE to be decent. Some, like Spawn Wave Media,DreamcastGuy, etc., have already written it off and declared Project XCloud superior with it’s 50 Game lineup.

At the 2019 GamesBeat Summit we saw a number of interesting discussions. One of these involved  Phil Harrison talking about Google Stadia and cloud gaming in general with Amy Hennig, a veteran game developer whom we discussed recently.

Since the announcement of the new 5G network for super fast mobile data, a lot of people have been left scratching their heads and wondering what was wrong with 4G in the first place?

Since then, the software has grown and expanded so that it is now capable of supporting 27 different platforms. Wait, stop right there.

Stadia vs xCloud vs PS Now: Which Cloud Software is Best?

Before games were saved on discs, they were stored on bulky cartridges. I’m sure we all remember those days.  Since then, the gaming industry has evolved and reinvented itself over and over—and now, with the rise of cloud gaming (and the immense success of television streaming services), gaming may stand to take a revolutionarily different route forward. A new generation of cloud gaming is on the horizon, despite the next-gen consoles being hyped for release in early 2020. Now that both Google and Microsoft have jumped on the cloud-streaming bandwagon, with Sony having taken the plunge five years ago, it
