    wait what?.... I think I'm gonna need this

    Nvidia is really stepping up lately. I like everything they are doing, and I used to hate them after their 3dfx merger/fiasco in the early 2000's

    I may look into this too. The streaming game service sounds interesting too. I'd like to compare Dying Light on my PS4 to the streaming version on this to see how it really compares. I have a hard time buying games on the PS4 because I'm not sure if I'll like them. Being able to stream a game at a subscription cost is a big thing for me so I'm not wasting money on something I may never play.

    The hardest part of maybe getting one is my wife. We already have two Chromecast and a Roku. We do have 3 TVs so it isn't hard to spread the 'love' around, but this is really interesting. Plus the whole Android TV thing. We'll see....we'll see.

    Could one stream current PC games not owned or installed locally using this?

    Actually, nevermind. Since Halo 5 Guardians isn't coming to PC, this question has no meaning to me now.

    Still, very intrigued none the less.
