NRC article on streaming of games



The announcement by Sony of Playstation Now, a to be rolled out game streaming service, lead to a flurry of speculation. And, two articles by yours truly on the ins and outs of cloud gaming, game streaming, internet speeds, and the second life of games. The first article is published in and a day later a shortened version appeared in NRC Handelsblad. I tried to take a critical perspective on the promise of streaming. There are a great many hurdles, mostly technological, but one can also question if consumers on the long term will benefit how game streaming will be implemented.
