Friday, February 8th, 2019

If you're like most people, you still want to see the highest possible quality, so you might have been disappointed that YouTube caps offline downloads at a measly 720p.

Amazon is reportedly developing its own game-streaming platform

Friday, January 11th, 2019

Streaming has radically changed the way most of us consume media, with music and video being readily available on demand over the internet. Gaming has proven to be a difficult nut to crack for would-be streaming providers, though, with several companies trying their hand to varying degrees success over the past few years. Now, Amazon is throwing its hat into the game-streaming ring, according to a report from The Information.

As streaming requires significantly less processing power than running games locally, titles could stream to Amazon's Fire TV hardware, as well as smartphones and tablets. Amazon reportedly is in talks with publishers about distributing their games through the forthcoming service, which could launch as early as next year.

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

I don't think anyone has ever said, "You know what would be cool? If Facebook made a Twitch competitor." Okay, maybe Mark Zuckerberg said that. Regardless of who's horrible idea it was, Facebook announced its own platform for streaming games back in June, and now there's an Android app for it.

The platform is called Fb.gg, and it serves as a hub for video game streaming on Facebook. It's supposed to recommend streams based on who you follow and the pages you like.

Google might buy game studios and develop hardware for its upcoming game streaming service

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

Earlier this year, rumors began circulating about 'Yeti', a game streaming service from Google. Much like Nvidia GeForce NOW and other platforms, it would allow users to play modern games on low-end hardware (because the rendering is done by off-site servers). Kotaku has now confirmed this information, and provided additional details.

According to Kotaku, the streaming platform is still under development, along with hardware designed for the platform. Since streaming games doesn't require powerful hardware (the $40 Steam Link is an example), the product would likely be low-power and inexpensive.
