Amazon is reportedly ready to put its cloud computing service to work on a video game streaming service.
Streaming services could represent a huge shift in the way we’ve played video games so far – it would eliminate the need for gamers to waste money on expensive consoles, PC’s and other hardware, in order for them to be able to play the latest titles.
The games would be uploaded into computers placed into data centers which would allow the gamers to access them on any devices, regardless if they have the processing power or not: that means even tablets and smartphones.
It’s not a novel idea: Google has announced its own Project Stream back in October 2018 , while Microsoft is focusing on Project XCloud, which is aimed at streaming Xbox One games. If Amazon figures its own service out, it could prove to be a worthy competitor on the market.
At the moment, this is just a rumor: the details come from The Information, who has reportedly been talking to two people who are familiar with Amazon’s intentions.
According to them, the company plans to deliver its gaming streaming service to the world in 2020.
At the moment, Amazon has not released any official statements regarding the report.
