I wonder if they're going to show anything of substance today?

Yeah, they're oddly not talking specifics about release and price.

I've read several reports of stuttering. Granted the wifi there is probably being taxed something fierce but you'd think they would do all they could to reduce that.



Reminds me of this:

Haven't they already tried this cloud gaming stuff? It's too laggy with our shitty infrastructure. Or is this something different?

There are some very cool features in this if the connection is stable enough. Cools service for people who insane internet speeds with no data caps.

Just talk towards your phone; they're always listening.

I really wanna pre-order, but there's no way I'm gonna be able to play and not go over our data limit. We pretty much end between 85% to 95% every month as it is.

I went ahead and ordered this after I downgraded my internet speed from gigabit to 300 MBs, but upgraded to unlimited data. Same cost.

How much do you pay a month? Outside options here for unlimited is so ungodly expensive.

$100

$60 for 300MBs and $40 for unlimited data. Signed a two-year agreement that discounted everything by $30. Normally, I think 300 MBs is $80 and unlimited data is $50.

Gigabit was $100 with 1TB data.

That sounds about right. Gigabit isn't an option in my neighborhood, but those prices are similar for the other services.
