How is Cloud Gaming Beneficial for you?
Time It Takes to Get Into a Game
One of the most important parts of a gaming platform is that you’re actually able to access your games. However, depending on the platform in question, the time it takes to access the said games can vary.
PC Gaming: 20-30 minutes, depending on internet speed.
Cloud Gaming: One-click instant play.
This is because not only some games are heavier and more complex than others, but the specifications of the device or PC can also vary, which in turn will affect loading times. Nevertheless, while your loading times often depend on the title and device specs, you still always have to download the game itself, which is mostly dependent on your connection speed.
Download File Size
Aside from being able to run the games themselves, another factor that can significantly contribute to your decision to game on both PC and on mobile devices is the size of the initial download required to get access to the game. After all, if you’re on the fence on whether or not you want to play a game, you may be dissuaded entirely if you find that you first need to download several gigabytes of data before you’re able to play.
PC Gaming: 2-3 GB for most games.
Cloud Gaming: No download required.
For most mobile games, the initial download could be something like 2 to 3 gigabytes, which can take some time to complete depending on your internet connection. However, on BlueStacks X, all the files are hosted on our servers, which means that there are no downloads required to actually play games on our cloud gaming platform.
Of course, while the process and time it takes to download and load the games can vary wildly depending on your hardware and connection speed, the resources required to actually run the games themselves will also vary according to various aspects.
Frame Rate and Performance
PC Gaming: Up to 60 FPS.
Cloud Gaming: Stable 60 FPS.
The idea of upgrading your PC hardware, or purchasing a better phone, for many gamers, is to get a much better experience with their games. In this sense, if playing locally, gamers will need to build their PCs and consider many variables in order to reach the coveted 60 FPS performance standard. And even then, whenever a new and more demanding game comes out, their current hardware might not be powerful enough, and they would have to settle with a sub-par experience.
