    The Steam Link is not immune from lag at 1080p on a local gigabit cabled network, how Google expect to deliver 60fps 4K with a cloud gaming service?

    They did not mention GeForce Now a single time. It's capable of running 1080p 120fps with huge libery for free. What a joke.

    Vortex has done it. Gcluster is a japenese cloud gaming service that has done this, so google can DEFINITELY do this.

    4k at 60fps... you could have said 4000k at 699fps and it could be the same, if the latency between button pressed and reaction is 2secs.. not saying it won't happen... but irrelevant numbers won't make u change gaming.

    Netflix of gaming? Does that mean they are going to be streaming anti-white games?

    How about work on developing ultra fast satellite based internet with 0 latency issues, 0 data limits and virtually feasibility ANYWHERE at extremely low costs?
    Now THAT'S development! Internet in today's day and age is a necessity! Its been around for more than 30 damn years!
