Powerful gaming is just a couple of clicks away - here's why you don't always need a hefty PC rig!
Having a powerful PC to run your favour AAA games with crisp clear visuals is always a bonus for any gamer - but what if you can't afford the latest tech or don't have a clue on how to build the best PC for your playstyle?
Fortunately, cloud gaming is on the rise - giving you and millions of other gamers the ability to play hi-spec games on a roster of devices with little to no latency, for a fraction of the cost of a high performing PC. We sat down with Boosteroid, one of the leading names in affordable cloud gaming services, to talk about why you should consider converting to cloud gaming - as well as five reasons why you should use Boosteroid as your go-to service.
Why now is the perfect time to use cloud gaming
"Millions of gamers have low-end computers," says Boosteroid. "Many people own ultra-portable laptops. There are plenty of different restrictions, especially when it comes to running resource-intensive titles.
"Cloud gaming solves most issues. With cloud gaming, a 200-USD laptop is as powerful as a 5000-USD gaming machine. Users enjoy the power of remote servers and don't need to own high-end gaming rigs.
"Even if you happen to own a cool gaming PC, you still need to download and install game files. With cloud gaming, it's all in the cloud.
"Files are managed on your virtual remote desktop, not on your own PC. Many games are 100-150 GB+, so it's always good to have unlimited Boosteroid cloud space not to bother the HDD of your computer.
"You can easily try hundreds of games with no downloads and installations. With cloud gaming you're not limited to any platform the game is created for.
"PC games are available on smartphones and TVs. And simply in the browser. However, when we talk about cloud gaming, it's important to keep in mind that users need to have a good and stable Internet connection.
"Boosteroid's requirement is at least stable 15 Mbps. Poor Internet = poor cloud gaming experience!"
Why should you consider cloud gaming
"You may not even realize you're a gamer," says Boosteroid. "Cloud gaming makes gaming easy and accessible.
"You don't need to own a high-end computer, you don't need to download and store game files (some can be 150 GB+), all you need is almost any device and Internet connection."
So, why should you consider cloud gaming:
- No need to have high-end computer
- No need to regularly upgrade your computer
- No need to download and store files
- Access your games on almost any platform with app or browser
