There was – and unfortunately still is – an everlasting competition on upgrading your own gaming computer to have something better and more extreme than your friends do. This tendency always follows the latest trends, a system powerful enough to run the latest games at highest resolutions without ever being slow or overloaded.
Cloud gaming services have begun and will continue crushing this competition forever and turning it into a competition between the cloud gaming companies themselves. How they are achieving this? By using cloud computing.
As we’ve hopefully read and studied (just as information, as basic knowledge of what’s new), cloud computing makes a new space where power is in sharing resources, storage space, thus making it possible to solve anything from any computer with an internet connection. Yes, you can have your own files, important data, photo albums, your daily office applications, your music and slowly everything “in the cloud”. That cloud I am referring here is a huge system of powerful – or less powerful – machines linked together to form one super-performance computer. This is where cloud gaming comes into picture!
Imagine all of the newest computer or console games running from the cloud. That would simply mean that you’ll no longer need an expensive personal computer or an extensive gaming console in order to play your favorite games – your games will be on the servers of the cloud gaming companies and you just log in through your internet connection and enjoy playing, you only need a computer strong enough to send/receive data in time and to display a live video stream in time (which is the actual video while you are playing your game). Amazing, isn’t it?
Boosteroid, one of Europe’s largest cloud gaming providers of web-based cloud gaming that allows for running high-end video games via Google Chrome, Opera, Microsoft Edge, Safari or any other browser. The gameplay is rendered on the remote server and is streamed to the user’s device via any browser over the Internet. This allows for running high-end PC games on low-end, ultra-portable, outdated devices with any operating system.
Boosteroid has also developed apps for Windows, Android and Android TV to run video games on low-end PCs, laptops, smartphones and Smart TVs. Users can launch the games they already own on Steam, EGS, etc. Boosteroid’s solution for Android TV allows users to enjoy console-gaming experience on the big screen with no need to spend money on console and expensive console game versions.
Boosteroid provides access to numerous AAA, AA and indie titles for €9.89 per month. An annual Ultimate subscription includes the same services as a basic plan (sessions are not limited in time, no queues to access the server) and costs €49.89 per year, which is about €4.16 per month.
For this price, users get 1080p/60fps gameplay that requires at least 15 Mbps stable Internet connection. Playtime is not limited, you can run games 24/7. Boosteroid also provides adaptive bitrate technology, custom saves and a session transfer between the devices (you can start your session on one device and continue on another).
Boosteroid debuted in 2019 with a closed beta test, and now has 9 points of presence with its own powerful servers — two in France and two in Romania, one — in the UK, Italy, Spain, Ukraine and Slovakia each. By the end of 2021 Boosteroid plans to scale the service to North America and LATAM with 10 new locations.
