    Was really excited for this so I tried it out, but man, it looked pretty rough. As a graphics snob, it was hard to play, as it looked like the quality of a compressed youtube video, with the screen really fuzzy in game. (I have good bandwidth and a wired connection to my router) Obviously to be expected but that alone was enough for me to understand why this service won't take off.

    91ms is huge! Especially since he was running the sim from an almost colocated machine. The latency should be much lower than that. Try running it from across the city, actually, go 60m north, then 60 south, then 60 east and 60 west and watch the difference. There's way too much uncertainty in how the cables are set up by various providers to be sure of a decent latency. Just look at what happened in the HFT (High Frequency Trading) world. They eventually went with over the air line of sight micro-waves. I can't see this taking off. Nice idea, but I wouldn't invest my money in it.

    #1- Bad idea for kids who would then NOT learn to build their own computer. This could lead to more "dumbing down" of future generations who won't know what the inside of a computer looks like or what any of the parts do. #2 - if you use it for other things, such as developing your own software, your own games, or your own apps then your code needs to be on a PRIVATE computer. Cloud computing presents a problem for protection of Intellectual Property from potentially being stolen or hacked from a cloud server. Personally I dislike any product that comes with a "monthly fee" attached to it. I'd rather pay once and own it. This is $420 every year for the rest of your life and their prices could go up every year.

    Stupid. Just like how AI is going to be the downfall of humanity as we know it, Cloud-Gaming will be the downfall of PC and even console gaming... This just takes away jobs from people who manufacture computers, less jobs, less money being put in to the economy. We create things that will "simplify" our lives yet, when we do things like this it's in the name of "technological advancements"... We always check whether or not we can do it, never IF we should. This is bad, don't let this become a reality.

    I have 2 friends using this service and they love it. Especially since one of them was forced to sell off his gaming rig because of personal reasons. But now is using a cheap old PC with and he can enjoy playing games like he did when he had his gaming rig.
    However, internet connection plays a big roll in this setup and if you have a weak or poor one then it will not work for you. But fortunately is constantly expanding and adding new centers as time goes on. So eventually one will be close to you and you should have no trouble when it's available provide it again did you have a good Internet connection.

    This would increase exponentially the amount of money PC gamers spend on games. It would certainly be a good thing for game studios as they could have a subscription to access games, and could brainwash consumers into thinking that "3 dollars for Tomb Raider access for 1 month is less than the cost of a whole gaming rig" and while that is certainly true, the number of games that are available to play/people want to have access to play would push the monthly cost up so much that in many cases, people will eclipse the amount of money for a budget gaming rig and the cost of outright purchase of the games in no time... Certainly within the lifespan of a budget gaming rig... Meaning it is bad for consumers... Which is the way the gaming world is trying to trend now because money is money.
    Not to mention... It is fun to build your own PC. It is fun to tinker. That is a part of PC gaming for many of us, the building/tinkering aspect. Cloud-based access to a bunch of powerhouse gaming rigs holds very little interest to me because of the potential for anti-consumerism and removal of tinkering-fun. They would have to shut down all the parts manufacturers and do away totally with BYOPC for this to go anywhere.

    No, they aren't. You aren't contending with why people buy stuff. One of the components is ego, and thus this doesn't have it. Overpriced iPhones? Why? False cache' and social importance among peers.

    So hey, I see lots of debate in the comments about how this is/isn't a win. However, for someone like me who needs access to a GPU occasionally from a remote location with either wired OR wifi for development and testing and not so much gaming... hey... it's actually a great way to go. I've been connecting remotely to things like spell and to my home rig through desktop sharing solutions... and this is just way more convenient. I'm sure there are other options out there that might be cheaper, but I run enough GPU time that services like SPELL are not always the best choice for my wallet. As well as this is a great way to have cloud access to just about any (non-mac) IDE platform.

    So $420 a year.
    Still have to have a keyboard, monitor and mouse but those last a long time so $700 of sunk cost there.
    Just build a Razen7/GTX2060 based system on PCPartsPicker for ~$1300 minus monitor.
    So build your own is about 3 years of subscription. At the end of three years of build your own I have:
    - A complete system that I can sell/give to someone with lower demands (I am currently gaming on a 2011 Dell with a 1050ti)
    - A complete system I can use for other things like retro gaming emulation or as a secondary system
    - A complete system I can refresh with a video card/processor
    - A PSU, case, RAM, HD, Cooler I can migrate to a new build (potentially motherboard too)
    At the end of three years of subscription I have......nothing. What I might have:
    - A higher subscription renewal (hellow Netflix)
    - No service at all (hello FilmStruck and DramaFever)

    Soooo an important thing to remember is this: Most high speed connections have a data cap, i.e Comcast has a 1tb cap where I am (and most places with high speed). Some friends tried streaming a 1080p game from Google and were using ridiculous amounts of their bandwidth. You would reach a 1tb cap in something like 10-12 hours of gaming doing full 1080p >60fps ... There is just no way around this. In the long run unless you have a data cap or don't game very much every month, this option is not feasible.

    Too bad cloud gaming won't work well for rural areas. I live in a tiny town, and we have DSL speed. I want Cloud Gaming to do the downloading for me from their servers so I don't have to wait a day to download a game, and the quality would be good no matter what the speed of the internet. Just a steady connection being required would of been genius, but in reality I need the mbps to stream it in good quality. Damn reality, and the constant updates for video games to download. I miss the MB, and KB download days.

    I would really want to see you conducting the same tests from the network at your studio. You wouldn't have the same results as you had in their data center. The so called BGP routers are a must for every ISP or data center. BGP protocol is used to exchange routing information with your peers, IP transit, advertising Public subnets, etc. BGP only finds the shortest path with the peers that you are connected to not the whole world. If a server is far away even to SSH into it sometimes can be slow and sluggish let alone playing games and having a full desktop experience. I am not saying that I am against it, but the way you talk about it its like its the ultimate solution. I love it that the technology is evolving and that new stuff is coming out everyday, but still i think that even though they sponsored your trip and whatever else your viewers deserve a real opinion not a sponsored one. I work on the tech industry myself and everything that we do at the company that I work is related to cloud like VMs, networking, firewalls, storage, etc, etc which i think that people that work on the same thing as me know pretty well and also understand what you are talking about. Again don't get me wrong about what I am saying here. I watch most of your content and I think that you do awesome stuff that I really enjoy watching, but when it comes to such a thing like "playing on clouds" I think that you should be more realistic. Anyways keep up the good work!

    Input delay cannot be avoided. Some users will be more distant than others from data centers. PVP would never be balanced on a system like this. The fastest data can travel is lightspeed, even fiber is slower, and even that can take 250-350ms over 1,200 miles right one way? copper connections, much slower. This isn't possible in the near future or at all given the currently accepted laws of physics... right? lol

    So let me get this straight... you want me to pay $35 a month (that's $420 a year) to play on a streaming system? You know, I built my gaming rig in 2010, overclocked and did one GPU upgrade over the years. Total costs building it including GPU upgrade were probably about $1500. I despise subscription services, and my internet is more than occasionally flaky. In short, it adds latency and costs more. Not to mention eliminating the fun out of building your own rig. Oh, and the last time I tested a game streaming service it looked like the compressed garbage it is. I don't see why on earth I'd ever want this and I think most PC gamers out there would agree with me.
