Everything you just said is an exaggeration. PC gaming and PC hardware aren't going anywhere. Consoles are staying too, there's no reason to end those devices.

 

Hot take, but I firmly believe this newfound Microsoft and Sony partnership is to compete with Google Stadia which is cloud streaming.

Well no, because not everyone will move over to Google Stadia. Steam is a thing on PC, I'll certainly stay on Steam because I don't believe in cloud gaming yet.

 

I don't like subscription-based services like Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus even if I do get games free, I'm not paying £50 a month just to play online with friends.

I don't fully understand how it works and am in no position to explain it since I never used the free games since they were always low-quality indie games with the rare good one such as Driveclub or Until Dawn.

 

You have to remember that these game creators should have other games up for sale so having one of their older games go free will be good for exposure rather than profit. I often found free games were games that were released over a year ago so they were well past their prime time. You'll never see the latest AAA game as a free game unless it's been out for a while and is not generating as much sales as it used to, but again, I don't fully understand how this system works.

 

I can't remember if this is a thing with every game, but often these free games were 'PS+ Editions' where if you wanted all the features, you had to buy the full version.

Additionally, you'll lose these free games if your subscription expires, I experienced this first-hand when my PlayStation Plus subscription expired last month.

Consoles are staying too

For now. I wouldn't be surprised if PS6 has an ultra cheap version that is basically cloud gaming (a la NVIDIA Shield). They might still need to provide a console that can process graphics for those that do not have the internet bandwidth to play cloud gaming, but by the time that PS6 is out, it shouldn't be too many.

 

In the future, the only reason to have a device that processes the games locally is just to be competitive (or enthusiastic). Casual players will just transition to cloud-based gaming as it will be a lot cheaper, which means a better value proposition for them.

Bandwidth is my main concern. I'm in no position to use an Ethernet cable as my house has the wiring of a stone age shack, so I'm stuck with my 802.11ac 5GHz band Wi-Fi capped at 60Mbps. The UK is a weird place.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'd be up and curious to try cloud gaming and for the most part, and for the most part, games that I play that aren't first-person shooters don't require the lowest of latencies so it might be doable. For context, I get 60-90ms ping in any given competitive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive game.

 

I'd also be curious as to if there will be any subscription services as OP mentioned, that would kill Google Stadia for me straight-up.

Ever had potato internet? Crappy stream quality so bad even YouTube gives up? Then you know that it isn't the end. I'd (and people in more developing markets) would prefer getting a copy from a friend or getting a physical copy and playing offline

I mean, 5G might be able to solve a lot of issues that cables have. Still, I was cautious and said that they might still need to provide a hardware "beefy" alternative as we are just speculating.

I agree with @seoz . I think this might be a way for you to store your games remotely and access them with any capable device over a capable network. Perhaps, just like a video Linus did awhile ago, it may even be that the games you play are rendered on a remote PC and you stream the game play to your console or lower spec PC at home. Just my two cents here, all speculation, may not even be close to the plans they have.

Just wait and see what it is.


From what I've heard so far its looking like M$ is only Hosting Sonys Playstation now. Maybe a new Version of that?


As you also know, Sony already has some kind of Streaming Service that allows the installation of some PS2 and also PS4 Games. PS3 not at this time (maybe with PS5?)

Unless every square meter of this planet will have an idividual sattelite, they can kiss my ass. I can't even have a convo while driving without losing signal and they want to stream games and charge me money?? haha, gtfo.

No not every one will move of to these services. Keep in mind you do need a decent internet connection and not every one has access to one. Plus I would assume data usage would be higher with this type of service, which is fine expect major ISP's like Comcast, AT&T, COX, etc all have data caps, maybe not thru their entire foot print, but I can tell you from personal experience Comcast's Central US territory is capped at 1 TB. I would assume that 4K gaming would eat up about as much as 4K movies if not more. 


You ever notice that many establishments have a sign that as "No Shirt, No Shoes, No service"? They never say anything about pants............ You know what that implies. You dont have to wear pants.

I agree. There will always be a market for one-stop gaming solutions with media player functionality that doesn't look weird in the living room.

 

Cloud streaming games will only ever work if network coverage and server access can be consistently guaranteed. As long as that remains a problem with authentication servers, I can't see console gaming as we know it being supplanted by a service that requires far more than just a short connection.

You forgot to add the end of Data caps. Because Im pretty sure gaming at 4K will eat a shit ton of data. Thats the biggie in my opinion that will hold back any type of Cloud gaming.

Well considering 3 adults in my home use almost 1 TB of data just streaming videos. Gaming would put us over.

My take is that the biggest limiting factor is going to be infrastructure. Currently and for the foreseeable future there is too large of a population that will not have the capability to be served by these game streaming services. You will see this roll out during the PS5 era, but unless the infrastructure takes improves significantly they will leave too many customers unserved and therefore too much money on the table to see a switch over by the end of the consoles life cycle. There will likely still be a PS6, but seems likely that there won't be a PS7.

 

Related, because of digital sales numbers, I think we will see discless versions of PS5 similar to the recent xboxOne S, but there will still be a disc based version. Assuming game streaming isn't widely adopted, the PS6 is unlikely to have any optical disc drive. I could see the XboxTwo being the last major console by Microsoft if they think the stream model is viable enough.
