Can’t watch the video right now, is this similar to googles Stadia?

Edit:

Found this article CNet
It explains why Stadia failed and the differences that might make Luna succeed, although they point out stadia main issue was lag, but never mention how Luna might solve this issue.

Pay to Play.
Games as a service.
The very reason I am buying games as fast as possible.

I hate streaming games...

I like hard copies or at least having it on my HDD ...

Guess I'm just an old fart ...

It's sad that the days of finding vintage games are gone. Going into used video game stores (not gamestop) and finding an unopened Metroid 2 for the SNES felt awesome.

Now I can't even go to Gamestop to browse the literal 1000s of games, yet I need to know what I'm buying before hand while shopping online.

Even worse, with everything digital, how is your digital library going to be inherited? Before, you could pass your games on. Now, when you kick the bucket, who gets your steam library? Who gets your xbox library? Oh, it's a win because those titles aren't be recirculated, they have to be bought at FULL value again.

I got side tracked from nostalgia, with these cloud based programs, is my phone good enough? Or instead of upgrading my computer once every 5 years, do I need to upgrade my phone every 6 months?

Isn't that what phone companies want us all to do any way?


It looks like all gaming is heading this way, a monthly subscription, an online service and never actually owning a game again with a million and one subscription services filling up your HDD.

Living in the sticks has me cringing at the though of acquiring new games. Internet is bad and slow.
