Streaming video and music to TVs, PCs and tablets using cloud services like Netflix, YouTube, Pandora and Spotify has become the predominant way to enjoy content for connected devices. The convenience of large cloud-managed libraries of content with stream-anywhere capability is impossible to resist. Now with revolutionary cloud gaming technology, you’ll soon be able to stream video games from the web just like any other streaming media. Cloud gaming technology renders 3D games in cloud servers, encodes each frame instantly and streams the result to any device with a wired or wireless broadband connection.
Freedom from the Console
Cloud gaming allows direct and on-demand streaming of games onto computers, consoles and mobile devices through the use of a thin client, in which the actual game is stored on the operator's or game company's server and is streamed directly to computers accessing the server through the client. This allows access to games without the need of a console and constant upgrades of computer capacity, as the server is the system that is running the processing needs.
High-quality, low-latency, multi device gaming on any PC, Mac, tablet, smartphone or TV.
Anytime access to a library of gaming titles and saved games in the cloud. Play or continue games from any device, anywhere.
No new hardware. No complicated setup. No game discs. No digital downloads. No game installations. No game patches.
