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.

City of Heroes has many servers and can only play on Windows or a few select Linux distros that PlayOnLinux can get dotnet35........and it is free to play forever for everyone

PS Now while it doesn't have a Mac client, PS4 remote play has a Mac client. You can use that to connect to PS Now through remote play! (I haven't tried it out, if it doesn't work, please let me know so I can update this comment)

PS Now is in my opinion garbage because they remove titles randomly.. It's good quality, works etc but I cannot play whatever title I want and I'm not buying a console. ever.

Well the best of all would be just using moonlight it’s available everywhere, it’s free and works great ranging from 5mbps 720p 30fps to 150mbps 120fps streams

Shadow is better then both Geforce Now and Stadia, stadia has latency issues on internet, Geforce Now kicks you off, has limited games, Shadow allows you to have whatever game you want on a completely full windows PC where you can do pretty much whatever you want.

Game streaming has the potential to push us back to the days where we fork over hard earned money per "life" like we used to in the game arcade instead of owning a game , sure we wont need to own expensive hardware to render the game but we can be milked dry from the comfort of our own home trying to complete a game.

Xbox XCloud probably was the best experience for me along side GeForce NOW. Really wonder how much BADLY Google managed to screw stadia, given they had so many examples (let alone good one) to copy off of

Isn't Shadow the PC-Gamers straming service? You can play with your 4k 60Hz or 1080 144Hz. You have all your steam games and a full-blown PC on top of it with a pretty good latency for my 50mbit/s Internet at 1440p and a reasonable bitrate. I could be biased, but I am missing a pretty big contendor whatshowever.

PlayStation Now is the worst because you can't play it on as many devices. The whole idea around these services is to be able to play you're games wherever you want but you can't even play it on mobile.

Destiny on stadia was looking bad definitely because of the HDR. The HDR on that game doesn’t work most of the time and when it does it can look wonky.

Sometimes I use Steam remote play, that works as long as the game works. Mostly. And if the game crashes or freezes you need to up two stairs to reset it.

As a gamer. I have used both Nvidia's and Sony's services, and hands down Nvidia wins, BUT I would probably never use because there is no service that would convince me to go stream a game over buying a game itself.... Its just not viable, I don't game enough to warrant a monthly billing cycle, but Nvidias free service is actually pretty damn amazing, having a shield I have streamed quite a few games over it, and have been very impressed. Nvidia's beats sony's 100%. Sony had consistantly dissapointed me with game selection, many games I wanted to play just were not available, but the absolute worst was PS4's TERRIBLE wifi/lan connection. I run a 100/100 Fios connection in home, and a 1gbps throughput in house, this is important as I run multiple 4k bluray rips at 100 megabit rate files, and sometimes even steam stream from my PC to my shield from time to time [I actually emulated my legally purchased version of BOTW on WiiU, emulated, and upscaled to 4k, far better graphics then my legally purchased Switch version]. Anyways back to my point, PS4's Wifi chip SUCKS so bad that it can't even get 10mbps download lol, and on LAN its maxing out on 80mbps down, and 10mbps up. Sony is pretty notorious for skimping out on wifi chips and lan ports in their high end devices, my Bravia has the same exact issue. So anyone looking to know which one to go wtih, get a shield and a nvidia game stream, 100% the best.

TheRealGamer Hace 10 días
I find the latency on all of them completely intolerable. And unless you have a rock solid connection, you’ll occasionally get random resolution drops as it struggles to stream at full quality over a connection with a varying bandwidth

Notmi Relnam Hace 11 días
From my perspective, you're needlessly wasting bandwidth to pay to get access to games that you lose all access to once you stop paying. Personally, I'd rather just only buy games when they're on sale and then have them forever. It's a lot cheaper in the long run, you don't risk the platform removing "old" games from the universal library that are no longer sufficiently popular, you retain full ownership of your save data and can mod the hell out of your experience, you don't have to buy the most baller internet package available just to pan the camera without laaaaaaaaag, you can keep games that would otherwise be pressured off the platform by virtue-signalling moral puritan busybodies with a Twitter account... If you're exclusively streaming games, you're beholden to the whims of the company that you're using. I'm struggling to find any scenario in which this would be worth it.

Stadia will fail, not enough subscriptions to keep it as a viable business, google will cut it, time will tell. GFN will rule them all. Like with the music industry and music streaming there were some artist that resisted Spotify for a short period, Microsoft need to get theirs on pc, playstation now is awesome, I recommend it. Ubisoft games are playable on GFN.

You can't beat the speed of light. Larry Elison was dead wrong and anyone who did art or played games knew he was wrong the moment he opened his mouth. No 3D game will be very good with just cloud computing, and no game at all will have good graphics. And, this will never work in Australia where the internet is utter garbage for most people compared to the rest of the world. In any case, I don't want to lose control of my own info. The only way to be in total control is to have the data on your own premises.
