Seems interesting for sure.

Not sure I like the idea of $35 per month though.

My last 5 years would have ran me 2100 but my system was 1500-1800 when I built it. 

I do like the idea of using my tv, [mac] laptop and phone to play games.

There was one game that had an issue with cloud gaming and was banning people. (And I cant think of the name right now.)

I was thinking the same thing as well, whats the average life of a PC before it needs upgrading and/or repairs?
My PC is 6 years old maybe 7, Ive had to replace a harddrive and a power supply, not to mention that my video card could use an upgrade now, I bought it for about $2000 originally, not sure, but seems like it might not be too bad, no repairs or upgrades would ever need be done, they take care of all that.

Eventually you’ll need to upgrade your local machine. Then you’re spend more on the system because of the cloud.

tHE WAY i UNDERSTAND IT, THE LOCAL MACHINE IS GIVEN TO YOU WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR A SUBSCRIPTION, unless I am understanding that wrong, then you just get it updated, no?

I was curious about this and while drinking my morning coffee I poked around their website.

It appears you need to purchase the Shadow Box (Thin Client hardware) if you need hardware to run their software (VDI).  The subscription only covers the service and you would need to download their app on a device with an operating system.  Either of those would run the VDI session.

Availability of the Shadow Box is currently limited.

It's not very clear on the surface and this is my interpretation.  I will correct if any errors are pointed out.

Oh that kind of good though. But they’ll have to replace that box eventually.
