I still haven't received a beta invite.
Sounds all awesome, but sadly I haven't got any invite.
I've got the invite and i have to say.. it's pretty awesome.
So far i've tested with the following game.
Red Faction Armageddon
Star Wars: TOR
This is tested on a poor dualcore laptop with Intel HD3000 with wi-fi
I've also managed to run BF4 with steam streaming with some tricks but it's lagging abit.. it's due to the streaming service does not detect it as a game or 3d application..
this is great news
it changes the PC gaming scenario completely
Sounds good, wonder if you can stream to tablets, or to my PS3
I wish, you can only stream to devices that have a full steam install, I.e. not the steam app.
Microsoft Surface Pro and Surface 2 Pro should work
Razer Edge and Razer Edge PRO should work
Can't wait for this to come out, maybe it will stop my flatmate bugging me to put my pc in the front room
Now I can use my laptop like it was a Shield. This is cool.
Right excuse for a powerful PC in the spare room and tiny HTPC in the front toom
I might have to upgrade my wifi card in my laptop to receive 300Mbps from my router. I can currently only receive 145Mbps.
So maybe soon we'll get gaming machines that only stream games rather than having to install/insert a disc? Subscription based game services (a bit like Netflix)?
Not soon but we already had Onlive for all that.
I look forward to trying this streaming thing. I'd love to see my dad's old laptop play games haha!
When we stream, does the game display output on the streaming PC or just on the PC it is streaming to?
It's display the game on both computers. Steam streaming_service just forward the output to another computer.
so it basically uses the hardware in the main PC and then streams the content to basically any pc/laptop with windows and steam installed?
like streaming videos with vlc?
if so then wow just wow
You can also stream non-steam games. Just add them to the library and start streaming
Playing games on my laptop awesome or on second PC can't wait already upgraded my router to dual band in anticipation time to upgrade wifi dongles I need speed................
