Amazon Planning a Game-Streaming Service
13 January 2019, 07:13 | Megan Pierce
Amazon's next big thing could be game streaming
Details are scant at the moment, but it's fair to assume the online retailer wants to create a Netflix-style on-demand platform for playing video games. The company has not publicly discussed its game streaming service at this time, however, and appears to have a lot of work ahead of it.
Suffice it to say that video game streaming is likely the next step in gaming, and with as huge a company as Amazon joining the ranks, expect the industry to hit full throttle. 'Streaming services represent a potentially significant shift in the games business by, in some cases, eliminating the need for players to purchase expensive hardware, such as consoles or PCs, to run the most elaborate titles, ' according to The Information. Amazon Web Services (AWS), one of the most profitable businesses being run by Amazon, is the leader in providing cloud services to individuals and organizations. This may have been what Amazon had in mind all along when it acquired Twitch, and then later purchased GameSparks, a cloud outfit in the United Kingdom that builds and deploys gaming backends. The Information believes that the service could launch sometime next year, and if that's true, we may hear more about it soon. Reporters, however, have spotted job listings relevant to this effort, such as this one for a Lead Cross-Platform Game Engineer. Amazon has plenty of experience streaming video and music, and it has a bigger presence in gaming than you might expect.
When Perlman jumped into game streaming over a decade ago, it was possible to play games by connecting to remote servers, but it never reached a mass market. Alternatively, Amazon could include the service as part of its Prime program. Based on the leak, the Verizon Gaming service is already up and running on NVIDIA Shield devices with plans allegedly in place to expand it to Android smartphones.
