What, me worry?
I think it's kind of funny that while the industry goes gaga over multiplayer games as a service, all this work is going into creating a different kind of service where those multiplayer games struggle due to the low latency required to play those types of games adequately. Who will win?

Now Doesn't That Make You Feel All Warm And Fuzzy Inside? :P
It will happen, but being held back by internet speeds currently. Let 5G get settled into the majority of the U.S. and along with it faster speeds to peoples homes. It will slowly take over just like Redbox took down Blockbuster, and Netflix/streaming is taking down Redbox.

It sounds like Mr. Spencer is setting realistic expectations for the tech. This is what the VR guys should have done.Ten years isn't that long. Look at how much VR gaming has improved in the last 3 years and where it's going. It took a few years to stack up some AAA titles and now it's picking up steam.
