It's about lunch time here, it's Tuesday... why would I be drunk?
We need Bellybama to give a proper remark to this lol my best atm would be “why wouldn’t you” >,<‘

But honestly wouldn’t the resolution be dependent onto the device it’s being streamed on?


Honestly if I can stream my games to my Switch or iPad I’d be set and happy.

I was just wondering, but I guess if that post made sense to you then that's all that matters.

I say bring it and let's see what they can do if it sucks then GTFO.

I have the bandwidth to do it!

This reminds me when people didn't want to jump to broadband when Xbox first came out.
I don't ever remember that happening.

Explain why not?
VaLLiancE good to see you find someone to agree with, I hope this gave you joy and willingness to keep going on.
Why? Because "goodbye 4k gaming" is completely misplaced when all logic points to it only continuing to get better in the future when new hardware arrives and technology improves even further.

I have no idea how you've arrived to the idea that the introduction of a new game streaming service as somehow being the end of 4k gaming.

Like I said, I guess it makes sense to you, so maybe you could embellish a bit?

This is like the third time Valliance has ever agreed with me on anything so I'm not sure why that should bother you.

Kinda surprised by some of the responses in this thread. You do know this was Microsoft's vision back in 2013 right? Nobody seemed to have a major issue with it at the time. If all that DRM nonsense had gone through we'd have been at this point by 2015 and probably would have never gotten the X.

What part of the article said anything about 4K not working?

We can ASSume but that isn't the same thing.

Not sure what the other part of your post is supposed to mean?

The whole thing is all about drm and this is the problem with these types of services,game ass and going digital only.

I would assume, especially for you amerikans, that your bandwidth would become a problem handling that resolution? Or am I misunderstanding how this works?
Valliance agreeing with you doesn't bother me, it's good he's making friends.

If nothing else this should be a good base for MS to work with in the future when streaming games is more attainable.

But 4k gaming would still very much be a viable via a standard console and the vast majority of people who would be using a service like this would likely have access to more than capable internet. It's not for everyone; hell there are some people with 1000+ Mbps lines who honestly will not give a s*** and never want to stream a game ever.

I've got 300+Mbps at the moment and run through about 3TB of data monthly with no data cap and that's not even higher speed option in my area so it wouldn't be a problem anywhere in my state or any of the surrounding states. For those that live in states without good internet, move, I would.

So... goodbye 4k gaming via streaming for majority of amerikans?

I've been scraping by with a very unreliable 50mbps (capped at 350 gigs) connection since I moved out a town (where I had 250 unlimited). Thankfully, in about 3 weeks time, they'll finally reach my house with that sweet, sweet fiber. They offer up to a gig for a Benjamin every month, but I'm starting with unlimited 100 up and down for 40 bucks. Then I'll see what my household needs from there!

A lot of LTE internet is faster than a T3 on the download side.
Yeah? Well the download side is what we mainly use when gaming unless we are hosting*cough POS COD*

I've been considering it, not that I need it but damn because it's a gigabit connection. 250-300 feels adequate for now.

Does Xbox utilize that full Gigabit speed in actual download scenario cases?

I'd br dead with a 350gb cap, that's gotta be rough these days.

Oh yeah. My overage charges took my 70 dollar (for a crappy 50!) Bill to 160. Negatives of living outside city limits. Thankfully my electric company sees value in expanding their network.
