Streaming games from remote internet servers could be the future of the video game industry — or part of that future, anyhow. By removing the need to own a PC or console to play the latest, most demanding blockbuster games, the medium as a whole could become more accessible. That is, if you have a good internet connection. Google’s recent announcement of its Stadia game service has thrust this idea back into the spotlight, and when it launches later this year, it might be an interesting option for both newcomers and seasoned gamers who are curious about streaming games over the internet. But it’s hardly the first cloud gaming platform to debut. If you’re interested in streaming your own desktop PC games to your PC, Mac, phone, tablet, or console, you can try one of a variety of cloud gaming and in-home streaming options today.

Cord-cutters seeking to rid themselves of cable or satellite have more choices than ever. And while going with free, over-the-air (OTA) TV from a quality HD antenna will definitely save you the most money, you’ll have to give up a lot of your favorite channels and programs. It’s exactly this compromise that has spawned the creation of a new breed of live TV streaming services, which offer many of the conveniences of cable, without the bonds of cable boxes and contracts.

Which one is right for you? Let’s do the math … Price Sling TV follows the pricing … [Read more...] about Sling TV vs. YouTube TV: Which live TV streaming service is right for you?
It’s that time again in the console generation. Your games look better than ever, but you’re starting to notice stutters and glitches a little more frequently, and you’re wondering when the console that’s sat under your TV for the past five years might benefit from an upgrade. When can we expect a new PlayStation or Xbox, and what will they be like? Microsoft is strongly rumored to be preparing a next-generation Xbox platform to encompass both cloud gaming and a more powerful console. Nintendo’s recent success with the Switch gives it a clear runway to iterate upon, and it’s said to be planning updated models for as soon as this year. But Sony’s plans for a presumed PlayStation 5 remain a mystery, beyond CEO Kenichiro Yoshida confirming that next-generation hardware is “necessary.” The one thing that seems clear is that there will probably be a PS5 by the end of next year. The PS4 came out in late 2013, seven years after the PS3 … [Read more...] about What to expect from the PlayStation 5
At $60 a pop for most AAA titles, the price of frequently picking up new video games is just too much for a lot of people. That $60 quickly adds up to rival the cost of an entire console if you're buying several games throughout the year. The best way to mitigate this? Try out a streaming service. Which is exactly what Sony has to offer with PlayStation Now. What is it? PlayStation Now is an on-demand streaming service similar to that of Netflix, except for video games rather than television and movies.
