Amazon reportedly working on a game streaming platform to compete with Stadia

Interesting fact is that Amazon has been working on a game called Crucible ever since 2014 and along with that game, the company is going to bring another game called New World, which fits into the massive multiplayer online game genre.

The game was supposed to roll out last month but was pushed back to May due to the coronavirus outbreak. Now, we don't know if the new platform will launch alongside New World but we know it's called Project Temp and it's also working closely with Twitch to develop interactive games where streamers can interact with its viewers as part of the game's mechanics.

I haven't tried NVidia. By Stadia works perfectly, lag free like playing PlayStation 4. I have 100bmps optic fibre and never suffer a shutdown. It's amazing how it works. I highly recommend it playing on TV

Cloud gaming is not good. Even with fiber optic internet the input lag is abysmal on Geforce NOW. Haven't tried Google Stadia but it most likely has the same problem.
