There are so many game streaming services popping up, with so many idiosyncrasies, that it’s hard to keep it all straight. In this video, James takes Linus through a tour testing GeForce Now, Google Stadia, Microsoft Project Xcloud, and Sony PlayStation Now to see which one makes the most sense...except we didn't try Shadow.

So you basically didn't try the best and most professional game streaming service. But say in the title "We tried them all". C'mon

No one ever mentions Steam and Playstation Remote Play options. I think they added these features not long ago and I've used them both and they're great. You basically use your own computer/playstation as a server that streams a game to your phone or another computer.

 

It allowed me to finally play Bloodborne by having it streamed to my PC from my friend's PS4 (I don't own a PS4). I also use Steam Remote Play to play games at work. 

 

Since most people in LTT audience already have gaming computers, I think this option offers a better way to enjoy their game libraries on the go than paying for a separate cloud service.

Xbox has a similar service, though I've only been able to play Forza Horizon 3, and not any of the 120+ games I have/had on my HDD.

 

Also, is Sony not bundling PSNow with their TVs anymore? I thought that was a thing they were doing?

This is not PS Now, this is actually streaming the game from your own PS4 to another device. You don't need to pay a PS Now subscription for it.

No, yeh, no, I get that, for the remote play service. I meant that question to anyone in general.

Have you tried parsec gaming?


Can Anybody Link A Virtual Machine while I go download some RAM?

Completely agree; it's a travesty that they didn't mention Remote Play Anywhere (or Parsec). Technically they may compete more directly with Nvidia GameStream than the services in the video, where you don't need a PC, but most of Linus' viewers have a PC and a large game library, often on Steam, making Remote Play Anywhere a zero-friction alternative. You don't need to pay or even make a new account!

 

Plus, you can even do it on iOS, which several of these services don't support yet. And Remote Play Together to play local multiplayer games together remotely is awesome, especially in these trying quarantine times. Only the host has to own the game.

 

I created an account just to point this out, haha. I probably sound like a total Steam shill, and to be honest, I kind of am. Valve actively contributes to efforts towards supporting gaming on Linux and (generally) the consumer, so Valve gets my money. And yes, you can use Remote Play Anywhere (and all forms of Remote Play) from Linux. But regardless of my bias for Valve, Remote Play Anywhere is a competitive service that should be objectively tested against its competitors!

I thought it was a good video. Always like it when there is some kind of discussion going on, instead of Linus (or anybody else on the team for that matter) just going through talking points. It feels more engaging.

 

But, that ending is kind of a let down. Kind of feels like a cop out / safe non-answer. I think you should be a little more opinionated than that. At least answer why, for you, pick a service and state a reason. Would have liked to know what James prefers too.

 

Like, Stadia, cause I believe Google will get over this issue they're having with "no games" and it's available on #everything. GeForce Now, because I already have these games and I just want to play them somewhere else, and if the service dies, I still have my games, I just need to buy my own computer. PS Now, because I love PlayStation exclusives, and this is the only service you can get them. And XCloud, because fucking game pass is awesome, and it doesn't hurt that I have an Xbox at home...

I always do try to mention them in a discussion about gamestreaming, myself. I use both whenever I travel to the other side of the country to visit relatives, because my laptop can't anymore run the latest and greatest games all that well -- gamestreaming lets me completely ignore my laptop's specs.

Maybe I missed something but when I watched this video.

The thing I was thinking the whole time was that LTT has super high end internet connection speeds beyond what most of the buying audience has available or can afford to get.

The real test of products like these are what can they give the average person who has average internet speeds?

 

Like he said in the video the jury is back on most of these and everyone is just waiting to see what the Microsoft product can do.

 

Much faster baseline internet speeds at cheaper prices.

To me this seems the only way likely for many products of all different kinds to make it that are trying to sell.

 

 

 

 🤖 This does not compute to me.
