Abstract

This IDC Market Perspective is the second of two documents on the emerging cloud-streamed gaming (CSG) market. This document primarily focuses on the infrastructure and technologies enabling the CSG services of the four major international CSG providers that are directly offering services: Google Stadia, Microsoft xCloud, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, and Sony PlayStation.

"Being a cloud-streamed gaming service provider is not for the faint of heart," said Shane Rau, research vice president, Computing Semiconductors. "From our analysis of the infrastructure investments of the four major gaming service providers, we see the need for ongoing improvements and investments that will go on for at least the next five years to make the market viable."
