The Beginning of a New Era in Gaming?

Xbox Pass, Stadia, Playstation Now ... all those streaming services are trying to be the Netflix of gaming. The idea is sound and if it gains traction with consumer it will revolutionize gaming as we know it. Why would anyone pay thousands of dollars for a gaming pc or console when a simple, bottom of the barrel, device could fill our gaming needs?

We're not talking about old games here but newer ones that would make any top of the line gaming pc sweat. Folks from google have recently partnered with Ubisoft to bring the latest Assassin's Creed game to the streaming world via the chrome browser. This experiment, which is sure to be successful considering the company behind it has unlimited funds, may just be the spark this idea needs in order to initiate a major overall in the gaming industry.

Whether we like it or not, this is what is coming for us and I don't know about you but I'm not ready for it. I still love buying most of my games in a physical format. I'm still curious of the direction this will take though.
