YouTube, Phil Harrison, and Jade Raymond COMBINE to bring you OnLive 2.0! (with appearances by id Tech, Ubisoft, and Dylan Cuthbert.)
…is the headline of some really lame clickbaity blogs no doubt. The tech here is really exciting, and some of the features (crowd share, splitscreen with no performance hits, state share, etc.) are really compelling to me.
Certain genres may not be viable for a long time (sorry six), but it’s not like Netflix has every movie. This seems like a good compliment to owning a Switch tbh.
There’s some good names behind this, and Google forming an actual first-party studio is a great sign of commitment. The GDC talk was pretty dev-focused so I’m excited to see how they present this to consumers at E3.
