Shadow is a new PC game streaming service that started up in California earlier this year. According to Engadget they are going to expand to the East and West coast on August 9th. After this initial expansion they plan to go nation-wide in October. What does all of this mean? It means streaming is going to be the next big thing to hit PC gaming and it's going to bring more gamers to the PC platform. I know latency and poor internet connections will impact the service, but with so many companies Including NVIDIA jumping onboard there has to be some fire amongst all the smoke. Also, this lend credence to rumors of Microsoft building a streaming Xbox to go with their next gen Xbox with dedicated gaming hardware. Whether we like it or not streaming is here to stay. Of course, Shadow is just one of several streaming services we've seen recently. LiquidSky is making waves with its solution, which relies on the public cloud instead of its own servers. NVIDIA's GeForce Now is still in beta, but it's very impressive so far. HP is also tapped the startup Parsec for streaming in its Omen PCs. And of course, Google is also rumored to be working on its a game streaming console, codenamed Yeti.
