My coworker has access to Google Project Stream. We loaded up Assassin's Creed Odyssey on one of our office computers using Chrome and played it for a while.

It looked great, but the latency was unbearable, lol. It's cool as a concept, but hardly practical.

OnLive actually sucked, including performance-wise, in addition to all the drawbacks of a subscription streaming service.

At least Google's service actually performs solidly for a streaming service, so the only thing they really have against them is all the other drawbacks of streaming - not owning or having any control over your games, good internet required, dependency on server and internet stability, etc.

(EDIT: I still don't see Google's service killing PCs, of course, if that wasn't clear...)

They just gave more detail on it. Apparently on their tests they were able to get 1080p/60fps on a 25mbps connection. They said 4k will be doable on 30mbps, which seems like an oddly small increase for such a large jump in framerate, but who knows. As people have said it apparently wasn't even working all that great so I don't know what their excuse is if they've been able to get 1080p/60 on such a low connection speed.

Not buying it until this is done on a larger scale.

No yet.

160-188ms latency.


Sorry if I missed it, but I was busy these days and couldn't catch up on all of this.

Is that a confirmed number or?
Because anything above 80 is really noticable for me and there's no way I'd play with such high latency.

for the people that only want to play fortnite or apex or DOTA/league...yeah,it should
for someone such as myself that has 291 mods active for fallout 4...no

Streamers of competitive mp games would be at a disadvantage to those playing it on their own hardware. Input lag.
