Game streaming could be the future, and it could bring some serious problems with it.

The story is too old to be commented.

ISPs now: we need to charge more for these movie streaming services!

The u.s. internet infrastructure is not good enough for streaming games. Period. We're way off of that.

Its not just US, streaming is so bad here in Dubai that PSnow is not even available to us as an option to use.

Or, we could just put a stop to this "trend" by not partaking in it. Problem solved.

People are sheep, that's why most follow the herd.. same with movies, games, everything.
I'm the complete opposite, doing the same thing as everyone else is boring.

Streaming (if any at all) should be left to local hardware only IMO when it comes to gaming.

Agreed. People also forget that trends are only trends if the consumer buys into them. It doesn't matter how much some companies want something to catch on if it doesn't. The trick is to not buy into them. Alas, I also often lack faith in the consumer as some people will do whatever big companies want them to do. I think as informed consumers though we can at least do our part by not contributing to unsavoury business practices.

can they stream these games in 4k with no lag, if not then it wont take hold and a console will be needed regardless. hardcore gamers will expect 4k 60 with hdr and no lag. if they can pull that off with no graphic degradation then im all in, if not then im still in as long as there is a console to go along with it making it a option

Nah f*ck that! Traditional platforms are a must.
