The Top Game Streaming Services in 2020
Streaming services have revolutionized the gaming industry by giving players access to some of the best games on the market remotely, and without the need to invest in expensive hardware and consoles. The only thing you need is a fast internet connection and you can enjoy high-quality games that normally would require a substantial amount of memory and storage.
This relatively new technology is gradually becoming widely used and the marketplace is becoming saturated with new companies aiming to provide the next best platform. Here are some examples of the top game streaming services in 2020.
With Playstation Now you can dive straightaway into some of Sony’s blockbuster hits on your PC or Playstation 4. You can access a collection of over 700 PlayStation games, with more and more added each month. Streaming online is easy and secure with a cheap vps, and on a PC, the only other thing you need is a DualShock 4 controller, either wireless on by USB.
Playstation Now also offers a 7day free trial so you can try it out first. The subscription then includes multiplayer options, which only costs $10 monthly, or $60 annually. The platform is available on mobiles and other devices.
GeForce Now (Mac, PC, and Nividia Shield)
With GeForce Now, you can play the latest AAA games on all your Mac, PC, and Nividia Shield devices. GeForce Now is not a content service and you have to purchase the games you want on a digital store. Once you’ve installed the app, however, GeForce’s cloud-based processors will allow you to run the game on any device, regardless of its specs.
If you’re interested in playing a more independent game, then Jump is your best bet. Jump offers a range of games from smaller studios available to play on any device. It does, however, use your hardware to run the games, so you’ll need to be sufficiently equipped in terms of memory, although the majority of them won’t take up much space. The monthly subscription is only $5 and 70% of the proceeds go back to the independent game creators.
Google Stadia is now so advanced that it basically replaces any games console. It’s available on mobile devices both iOS and Android, tablets, and other electronics and TVs using Chromecast. Google handles all updates so you’ll never have to wait for your games. The service also promises a connection with YouTube and Google Assistant. Perhaps soon in the future, gamers will be able to jump into their favorite games from YouTube.
With the progress of game streaming services in the last couple of years, it’s easy to see this as a major part of the future of gaming. You won’t be limited to a console or device and cloud-based technology will take care of everything. Anyone looking for an affordable way to access hundreds of games can look forward to more from this market just around the corner. Top-quality games will be made available in seconds online.
