Cloud Gaming is not a new concept in the internet industry. But past two to three years, It become popular after the announcement of Google’s Stadia project. Google is not only one that announced cloud gaming, Microsoft also announced its next Project publicly. Major companies like Sony, Amazon, NVidia also working quietly on Cloud Services. So we can say the future of Gaming is Cloud gaming.
Do you know about Cloud storage and streaming video? The same thing is Cloud gaming. It is also called gaming on demand. It is a type of online gaming. You don’t have to install Gaming in your Mobile or PC. It is working like streaming service which means Games files stored in servers and you have to access the games by internets.
Games stored in the companies servers instead of Gamer’s Computer or mobiles. You don’t need to purchase powerful processing computer for play Games on Cloud. The Gamers play the games by installing the Client program which means you don’t need to install Full games. Just install the Client’s program and start playing the games. But there is a problem, you need a good Internet speed connection otherwise your gaming experience became boring.
Cloud service doesn’t require a lot of processing power, it means you don’t need to buy very expensive PC or Laptop for gaming. We know that if we want to play AAA gaming title, we need a powerful gaming pc or device but in the case of cloud game, video gaming will become cheaper than ever.
I am sharing the Upcoming Cloud game Project service with you.
