PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo game consoles are at risk of being killed  

With an estimated total value of 128.95 billion USD, the video game industry is a potential and bustling market. It becomes more and more attractive and more harsh than ever because of the rapid elimination speed.  There have been many platforms appearing and disappearing during the development of the game market. Due to the popularity of games on PC, the console that survived so far is a miracle.

The turn of the leading industry men  

Cloud gaming platform has failed, typically OnLive streaming device because of too many restrictions on content, latency (lag), Internet connection speed at that time … However, cloud gaming comes back with backed by the big game industry is showing that this technology has been more carefully prepared.  Cloud gaming service Nvidia GeForce Now released on January 9, 2018 allows users to play online via PC, Mac or its Shield tablets.  PlayStation Now, the service that provides streamlined PlayStation games to PC so that players can enjoy games dedicated to this system, has been developed and improved by Sony every day, even though it is not widely promoted. .  In October 2018, Microsoft revealed about Project xCloud. The project aims to upgrade the Azure cloud computing system to stream AAA games to any device.

Accordingly, the steady development of Xbox Game Pass, a monthly fee-based online game offering service, is seen as part of the strategy to build the platform and database for Project xCloud.  Around the same time, Google announced its decision to expand cloud gaming with Project Stream. This project is going through its own development tool. Accordingly, the tester will be selected and tested Assassin Creed Odyssey on Chrome browser.  Amazon is also out of the race with the announcement that it will launch its own streaming game service in 2020. In Japan, users can play online Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Resident Evil 7 with Nintendo Switch.

Cloud gaming empire is still far away  

Cloud gaming’s biggest drawback is the bandwidth overload problem in maintaining high quality AAA games. Accordingly, although the response from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey test on the web browser is quite good, if you want to play games in 4K resolution, the players still have to equip consoles and high-end TVs.

In addition, latency is another noticeable obstacle. While gamers always set the screen to the lowest one-thousandth latency, the video game for a few seconds due to the slow Internet connection is really a hassle.  These problems pose many challenges to the ability of Internet bandwidth at home. However, with a 5G network, things can be solved because of its transfer rate of up to 10 Gbps in theory. However, at least until 2029, the new cloud gaming facilities are officially ready to serve users.  Although the big players in the industry like Microsoft or Sony have taken certain steps to catch up with the new trend, they still believe the game console will live at least 10 more years.
