Here's What People Are Getting Wrong About Game Streaming, Microsoft Or Google
I've noticed an image traveling around whenever we talk about game streaming, whether it's with Project xCloud, Google Stadia, or whatever unnamed services we have yet to see. You see it in presentations, and it was the main way that Microsoft was showing off Project xCloud at its showcase at E3: a full controller with a stand attached to it, playing a AAA game on a phone.
We see this a lot because it creates some dissonance: look at this! It seems to say. Halo on a phone, who would have thought? You see similar images floating around with a tablet or maybe a laptop in place of the phone, all of which seem to be making the same point: streaming lets you play the games you want wherever you are.
