Google now has its own first party gaming studio. Will create games exclusively for the platform. She’s the head of their new game studio.

Playing Assassin’s Creed in the closed beta was like playing a YouTube video, compression and all, with very noticeable input lag.

I don’t know who this is supposed to be marketed to.

That’s what I’m seeing in the comments section on ResetERA. If people complain about Playstation Now, they will complain about this. With data caps, crappy ISPs with local monopolies and no net neutrality, this just isn’t feasible at this moment for vast swaths of the United States.

I really like the idea of streaming games, but I have a feeling it will only work for specific games. Primarily story driven SP games that don’t rely on a lot of action.

Any guesses as to the price? $15/month?

My guess is you still have to buy the games at full price.

This is basically my exact opinion.
