Way too many marvel movies right now. Around a month ago there was 3 of them in theaters simultaneously.... (Black Panther, Avengers, Deadpool 2)

And the surprise at the end is only a surprise to non-fans - or, at least, people whose only exposure is the theatrical movies.

The reveal in question is not even a reveal if you follow the rest of the canon (and we're not even talking the books - the TV shows).

Are you talking about

If so I don't really think it fair to say it was only a surprise for non-fans. I'm quite a Star Wars fan myself (read a good chunk of books) and had no idea that was coming. If that was set up in The Clone Wars or Rebels TV series that I think it is safe to say that most adults were surprised by it - aren't those series kid's shows?

Streaming games to end-users directly from a data center is almost certainly the end goal. The in-home stuff I expect is just the beta test for what will ultimately come next. Nvidia's Game Streaming tech has been out for a few years and now they are developing Geforce Now. I expect all of that home game streaming tech was the gateway dev environment for datacenter->home game streaming. Nvidia has already published that you will be able to pay more for a better graphics experience.

Valve, Microsoft, Sony, etc. all are salivating at the thought of signing people up for a $X/month all you can game buffet. Corporations love subscription revenue models. End users will love that popsnizzle too. Subscription models have taken over virtually every industry. It is only a matter of time before it takes over in gaming as well.

I'm actually really surprised that Steam and Sony haven't introduced some sort of subscription model for games. Microsoft and EA are already playing around with it. EA Access for $50/year on my PC is an absolutely fantastic deal.

Frost I expect 1 font size larger when you respond. Harry has started a FONT WAR!

I can confirm that the both Playstation and Xbox streaming work very well.

I stream Halo:MCC from my Xbox One X to my gaming PC and after about 15 minutes or so I forget I am streaming the game. The graphical fidelity is not as good, but once I get immersed in the game I don't notice it. I always play God of War 4 from my PS4 Pro to my PC via streaming. I hate not being able to alt-tab to other stuff on console, so I'd rather stream to my PC for non-competitive games and that way I'm still in my nice PC world of app switching, web browser, etc.
