Cloudy with a Chance of Games

One of the drivers of cloud gaming will be the use of 5G mobile networks. 5G will reduce the need to have a internet provider to use and remove another barrier to gaming. The UK government has been under pressure to remove Chinese firm Huawei from providing 5G infrastructure. They are bowed to this political pressure and now Huawei will not allowed to proceed

From a cloud gaming perspective in the UK this may reduce the take up of mobile gaming as there are only a few cities that have 5G. Removing Huawei will likely delay the rollout to new towns and cities.

I have been playing since the Commodore 64 days and have basically played every console going since then including the Ouya! I have been a fan of cloud gaming since the Onlive days and that was my favorite platform. Cloud gaming will revolutionize how we play games going forward and it is just a matter of time when it takes off.
