    Yeah keen to know the internet speeds required for this.

    I don't think anyone is really surprised that Skyrim will be available on the service.

    Speed in Mbps won't be an issue, latency in ms might be though.

    As long as they utilize the existing Google CDN we should be seeing latency of 5-10ms via Fibre in Auckland which is completely playable.

    I will be keen to see if they have any other tricks or new tech that makes performance even better.

    It's very interesting for sure. Plenty of companies have tried this in the past, but none have the infrastructure or wallet that Google does.

    I think this will sink or swim purely based on the publishers/catalogs they can get on board.

    Google doesn't have a CDN in NZ so this seems unlikely, you can measure your GCP times here but they're roughly 40-50ms on my system. Similar latency also occurs on Microsoft's Azure cloud centres which also don't have a NZ CDN.

    Did Google give away the rough specs of next gen consoles in their presentation. Seems like it to me

    you'll have 2 lots of latency, there and back, just on your inputs in a single player game. and that's assuming no hiccups with the video stream. sounds like a recipe for frustration. you could only play the most casual of games like this.

    I agree. I get sick of online gaming for that very reason, the lag, so play local games just to get away from it. but with this set up, there is no way to get away from lag if you have it.

    You're right, I had completely brushed over the fact that they don't have a NZ CDN This will be unplayable for us, until these exist.

    Also just because it is a CDN doesnt mean it can support GPU. This product (much like Geforce Now) is going to take a lot of infrastructure.

    This.

    It ain't content you're streaming, it's compute.

    Yeah after looking into it further and understanding it better, this won't be happening in NZ to a playable standard imo.
