Will Cloud Gaming Replace Consoles?

Episode 1824 (1:51:53)

Mike B from Piscataway, NJ
Xbox Cloud Gaming Services

Mike B. wants to know if Cloud Gaming is going to spell doom for console gaming. Leo says that the purist thinks that it will never be quite as good as hardware, but Leo thinks that the latency continues to drop to the point that it will at least probably be the end of PC gaming. Especially considering that Microsoft is working towards Windows in the Cloud. Eventually, we may just have terminals that connect online, much like Chromebooks. And if they can do it with gaming, they'll be able to do it with anything. But the hardcore gamers are going to be dragged kicking and screaming to it.
