Verizon Gaming - a new game cloud streaming service from Verizon
Verizon Gaming - a new game cloud streaming service from Verizon ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
Recently Amazon announced the creation of their own game streaming project, following Google with their Project Stream and Microsoft company with their Project xCloud. Now Verizon, according to the article by The Verge, is allegedly working on the release of its own streaming service.
The streaming service will be a Verizon Gaming application that will help players, without downloading the content of the game itself, to try all the new products entering the gaming market. It is already working on the Nvidia set-up box and promises a port service on Android-based smartphones. The Verge refers to the company's documentation, unfortunately, without attaching a link to this document. Therefore, we cannot confirm or deny this message. Also, like Verizon itself, which didn’t publicly recognize or advertise the existence of Verizon Gaming.
According to the same source, Verizon Gaming already has more than 135 game titles in its library, including the popular God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Detroit: Become Human. This fact puts our editorial board and not only us at a standstill. Is this a misinformation from the service, because God of War and Detroit are PlayStation 4 exclusive, and Red Dead Redemption 2 works only on consoles (PS4 and Xbox One). The assumption that this is just a placeholder has been made, and it seems logical. However, it is not clear whether these games will be available to users of the service.
The article also mentions the details of the letters from the alpha test participants, who were provided with Nvidia Shield, Xbox One controller and promised a $150 Amazon gift card at the end of the test.
"This trial is primarily focused on performance. At a later date, when we advance the product, our library will consist of most or all of the top games you are familiar with - but at this early stage we're working on the engine and its parts."
We want to see your thoughts on the idea of spreading the cloud gaming streaming services among leading companies: do you think this is the future of the gaming industry or just the influence of trends?
