Hope they buy Ubisoft and put their games exclusively on AWS. $6 is great subscription price for all their games day 1.

 

Expect lot of the old studios to be bought by Google,Amazon,M$ 

 

Apple will charge a big premium to let them use it’s AppStore 

(& probably buy out Sony at some point in future......I hope)

I mean I need to use the Luna's hardware to process and stream my owned games like geforce now

 

It is nice but that will change when nVidia decide to keep GeForce Now around. Big publishers ain't happy with it already. 

 

No one will allow it unless their own games.

Ubisoft Announces Channel on Amazon's Luna Cloud Gaming Service

 

Players can subscribe to the new Ubisoft gaming channel and get access to Ubisoft games at up to 4K resolution on Luna, including games from Ubisoft’s back catalog as well as new releases like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, and Immortals Fenyx Rising, which, once the channel launches, will be available on the service on the same day they launch on other platforms.

 

Quote

“We’re already seeing new audiences that haven’t been Ubisoft players before playing on cloud platforms,” says Chris Early, senior vice president of partnerships at Ubisoft. “In addition to these new audiences, we’re also seeing people who have played before, but might have lapsed for several years and are coming back to play again. We believe they may own an older generation of a console or an older PC that can no longer run the games we release today and now they can play the newest games in a streaming environment without purchasing a new PC or console.”

 

“We’re also starting to see more dedicated players gaming across multiple platforms,” he adds. “If a game supports the ability to save progress on one platform, and then you’re able to carry it over to another, you have a case where someone might be playing in their living room and then they might want to continue to play on mobile or tablet on the go.”

Looks like another stadia to me lol

The business model is completely different though and frankly pretty innovative. Subscribe to the base back to get access to a catalog and get additional packages for specific publishers incase there is a new game from them you wanna play.

The gamepass/x cloud model is so much better, pay one price get everything for that price. No mental gymnastics on how much it will cost to additionally play a specific game.

Its not stadia, it is regular Netflix/prime.
Stadia is idiotic. They want users to buy every game, Pro users get free access to few games (every month).

It’s more like a Tata Sky model which is fine as long as the packs don’t get confusing, don’t have overlapping games and can be easily added/removed.

The subscription model may be good but the tech is not ready yet. Even stadia which charges a hefty amount wasn't able to provide the service they aimed for.  

They can’t wait for the tech to be ready & then enter the market 

 

it’s a race now between M$,Google & Amazon to be the next Netflix of gaming
