With revolutionary gaming technology soon it will be able to stream video games from the web. Several companies signaled plans to make it much more of a focus. Within years cloud could be a significant force in driving how and where people play games.
Gaming in the cloud rather than on expensive hardware might seem too good and promising. Cloud gaming makes perfect sense to gamers, who otherwise have to continually upgrade their consoles which is undoubtedly costly, cloud service providers, who can sell the already-deployed cloud resources to support the cutting-edge games that extremely resource hungry, and game developers who no longer need to spend extended time to port their games to different platforms. The top benefits of cloud gaming include
• Compatibility with any devices because the limitation caused by memory requirements, graphics capacity, and processing power are diminished with cloud solutions.
• It reduces costs because cloud systems follow pay as you go strategy in which gaming companies pay only for the resources which they have utilized.
