This will probably end up being the future, streaming video games for a monthly subscription. So it's pretty cool to see so quickly a massive title get this. Hopefully it works out well. I applied and will report back on it

I just hope the tech giants don;t end up removing the option of having local play, That would suck.

Well I don't see them for a very long time not having physical, or at least downloadable, games for offline play. Especially for single player games.

And yet it's pretty baren and dead. It's also not backed by a major corporate company that just simply has more market power and presence.

If anyone can do it properly it's probably Google. And it's smart of them to get in on this early on, before Apple.

its a logical direction.

The biggest taxi service in the world own 0 taxi (Uber)
The biggest movie/series provider owns 0 media (netflix)
The biggest music provider owns 0 music (spotify)
The biggest games distributor will own 0 games (<who will be first>)

Streaming is the way of the future.

There's lots of game distributors that own zero games? Argos, Game, Gamestop, etc..?
