Microsoft rumoured to be developing game streaming service known as 'Arcadia'

It sounds like Microsoft is getting into the streaming games business after all, if reports are to be believed.

Known as Arcadia, Microsoft’s in-development streaming games tech is reportedly being developed by a new streaming team in Microsoft's Operating Systems Group. The Arcadia technology replaces the discontinued "Rio" game-streaming technology which Microsoft demonstrated at the company's annual meeting in September 2013.

There is no further information on the service at this time and it's not expected to be revealed at the Windows 10 event next month either. Whether it will come to anything at all, we'll just need to see as companies often experiment with tech such as this.

Sony became the first console platform holder to branch out into game streaming when it acquired Gaikai in 2012 and later launched PlayStation Now in North America. 

Would you like to see Microsoft branch out and complete with the likes of PlayStation Now?

No not really but if it was a subscription service and the games offered gamer score then I would be a little interested.

If they managed to get the prices right unlike PS now then I would be interested.
