    So $10 a month for 1080p gaming which has image quality affected by video compression?
    I think that $120 a year is enough to sustain PC capable to do 720p rendering and DLSS it to 1080p as it would certainly win over video stream compression artifacts.

    I say that price tag should be appropriate for streaming resolution in a way that their server solution should come cheaper than local ownership solution.
    Because day, someone stops paying for their service, all they are left with are memories. Day someone stops playing on their low budget gaming PC, they can still use it for something or sell it.

    Edit: It is like value proposition of YT Premium vs Netflix. One is more worth than other.

    Not a service that i would ever use and if a game streaming becomes the norm then i would simply give up gaming, as someone that's been gaming for 46 years i can see that gaming and how we play is changing but this isn't something i'm prepared to accept, thank god for my old systems though.

    Still reasonable. Computers aren't exactly cheap. Nice to have someone else deal with keeping things up-to-date, problem free etc, you just get the experience. It's more of a theater ticket - you won't own the chair, unless you want to buy the building. There're always users, laptop users.

    I am happy paying half price with 6months recurring billing of founders subscription. Perfect gaming for my laptop(s) and smartphone(s).

    You could approach it this way:

    "Hey, atleast it's cheaper than 1000 dollar 3060 Ti which lasts 4 years."

    :p

    I think he's asking why dont you stream the game from your gaming PC to the laptop instead of paying a subscription

    Not all of the game I play are on Steam as I bought CP 2077 from GoG and some games I have on the Epic store (the free ones like JC4) and my table I use sometimes isn't fully compatible with Steam link too. I have a strange mish mash of gaming situations.

    Show us any competing solution that allows us to do this across almost all devices with the games we own for $10 a month at higher than 1080p then.

    I remember trying the service when cp2077 released, could max out all RT features and it remained playable.
    You don't have the native experience of a RTX 3060 running on your local computer but you're 85% there.

    Why would pay to stream/cloud gaming game I have to of bought in first places?

    Answer I wont and never will I like owning my game and not be and mercy of internet and the latency compersions that gona be involved with "streaming" games I "was" in awe my my friend telling me her Switch game need 50mbit connection and 20ping ( game/system actual says speed to slow etc )for it to work connecting to other servers. Which was killing her 100mbit connection when 2 people were playing the same game. and seeing everyone tv view is done streaming it was already under stress told her to get new Asus ax58u which fixed her questionable wifi signal she was having and made the issue not as bad cause new router has more powerfull cpus , Her switch still struggles to just pull 50mbit for 5ghz or 2ghz and she is right next to router and in same room, but device are in other rooms get 40+mbit vs lower it was getting with older netgear router. at this point either modem is overworked and cant provide 100mbit which most mobile phones all pull that 100mbit from 5ghz and 2ghz all the time or she need to get atlest 300mbit which next tier up for her. that or Nintendo is throttling connections or ISP is.

    So this saying 25mbit min for 1080p/60 hate to see what 4k requiments are with compression make game needing 50mbit possible? . but I would never want to or go along with cloud gaming crap

    Biggest problem is video quality. 300mbps and Cyberpunk 2077 looks kinda blurry than on my RX570 with CAS

    somehow I doubt Switch really needs 50mbps to play games

    At this point, I fully believe that the 4 series will come out and there be no stock until then. Who knows. 3 series might be completely gone without any chance to buy one. Literally. No way in hell will this supply issue end in 2021. Got a long ways to go if you want to buy a video card. Really long.

    I got a year subscription free with my RTX 3090, I use it at work on my iPad when it’s quiet and it’s actually not that terrible.
