While major gaming CEOs continue to push the idea that streaming games is the future, which would be convenient for them since they won’t have to pay royalties anymore to console makers, many gamers remain uninterested in the technology. OnLive was perhaps one of the biggest flops of the video game streaming service industry that helped prove internet connections and demand for such a product just don’t exist to support the business model yet.
Despite that, the game industry continues to develop software and technology geared towards a streaming future in which you wouldn’t own your games but instead pay a monthly fee for the right to stream them. Google announced today that they are testing one of the world’s most advanced video game streaming services ever conjured up – currently nicknamed Project Stream. In a partnership with Ubisoft, Google Project Stream will allow beta testers to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in their web browser even if their computer is fairly weak (as long as their internet connection is strong).
