Remember when you had to be at home in front of your computer to watch men falling over, or angry nerds raging about Call of Duty on YouTube? That was--at best--five years ago, but in such a ridiculously short space of time, it’s almost insulting when a streaming service isn’t available on everything you own, including your fridge. I don’t need milk, fridge, I need to catch up with Archer. Anyway, if you were so inclined, you could get up and watch Netflix on your laptop in bed, before carrying on with it on your phone on the bus, sneaking in a cheeky episode at work and capping the day off with watching it on your console.
So, obviously game streaming can’t just be limited to PCs or a console. Tablets, phones, smart TV’s, microwaves, the kitchen sink…Basically, anything with an internet connection should give us the option to continue with whatever game we were last on. Considering there are now more than a few controllers for phones--as well as the OnLive controller--it doesn’t even have to come with severely limited touch screen controls. No excuses streaming big wigs, if I can’t play ‘Splitters 2 everywhere, then what’s the point of living in your fancy-ass Cloud?
