    Amazon has the infrastructure to really make this successful. Even with Azure's datacenter footprint propping up xCloud/Gamepass, AWS is still the king for a reason.

    The real loser here is my beloved Google.

    Scary hours. nikkas talking about who Sony will buy in response. Amazon, Google is who you should be watching.

    well, it's not who did it first, it's who did it best.

    honestly with the way people were crying about the death of physical games and all this, now we full on jumping into cloud gaming? I'm trying to decide whether or not i'm ok with not having games on my system/having to be online/stuff being taken off the service eventually. I don't wanna lose my access to gaming like i lost to movies, cause it's easy to bootleg movies at the end of the day, games? not so much.

    also, I think gaming going to the way of netflix means we won't be seeing big budget stuff as much. It's gonna be 90% GAAS and developers squeezing us for every penny in cheaply made destiny clones.

    Amazon getting into GAAS can be a problem

    Stadia
    Gamespass
    PS Now

    Amazon can make them all fall back.

    The only real issue there has ever been or ever will be for GaaS ( I need to copyright this :jbhmm:) , is bandwidth, latency, and connectivity. US internet providers will continue to be the bottleneck in this type of gaming.
