Blade the new game streaming platform created by the French start-up has today made their game streaming service available in California, U.S. The PC game streaming service asks members to pay $35 a month to rent a powerful gaming PC that sits on a server farm allowing you to use any low powered PC or mobile device to stream the game directly to your location.
Keyboard and mouse communication takes place over a low latency Internet connection and unfortunately users will need to be relatively close to the server farm in order to minimise this latency. Hence the reason why the PC game streaming service is rolling out in California first. As this is the same location as the server farm.
It seems that the new game streaming service is suffering from a few teething problems at launch but hopefully the services developers will be able to eradicate any stuttering which has been noticed by users since its launch ,even being in the same room as the a 5GHz router streaming the service.
