Yesterday, my wife wanted to play some Kingdom Hearts. I was in the mood for Titanfall. We only have one TV. So I pulled out a Surface 3 tablet, plugged in an Xbox One controller, and started streaming the game from my Xbox to my portable PC. It’s a new Windows 10 feature.
The rumors were true: Two of the most hated companies in America have teamed up to stream games to your cable box. If you pay for Comcast’s fancy X1 service, you could soon be playing titles like Plants vs. Zombies, Real Racing 2 and NBA Jam on your TV without so much as a disc or a download.
Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo will do their damnest to sell you on PlayStation, Xbox, and Wii. But maybe, you’ll have already spent your money on an alternative game console: a Steam Machine. Today, you can pre-order the fabled Steam Controller, the Steam Link streamer, and one of two different Linux-based gaming PCs.
Gosh, wouldn’t it be nice to play a little Bloodborne tonight? Shame my wife will be using the TV. If only I had a way to stream games from my PlayStation 4 to another device. How about a hacked version of the PS4 Remote Play app that works on Android phones and tablets—and my Nvidia Shield? Yes. Yes. That will do…

The streaming game service is no longer charging $15 in monthly fees, so if you've been put off by yet another monthly direct debit, now's the time to sign up for a free trial. Jason loved it when he tried it out at home, but was put off by the various fees associated with it—though they were touting a promotion for a…
You've heard the pitch: the Spawn-720 is like a Slingbox for console games, letting you play your Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or (almost) any other console, through a streaming client on your PC. But does it work? Yes, so far.
I'll grant that OnLive—the streaming game service that its makers claim will bring high-end games to virtually any PC or TV—borders on implausible, but you gotta beliiieevve! For the haters, here's a demo video.
Through a cheap set-top box or a simple PC software client, OnLive streaming games can deliver the latest system-melting titles to crappy hardware you already have. The service's secret? Cloud rendering.
