They say that the future of video games It is not in the physical platforms, but in the services of streaming and that is why we see some of the main technology companies proposing their own options, such as Stadia de Google, Luna from Amazon or -obviously- xCloud from Microsoft.
But the notion that the future of video games is in the cloud does not necessarily apply only to the titles that will be developed later, but also to those that came out more than 20 or 30 years ago and that they run the risk of being forgotten because they are not available on any platform.
In attention to this is that now comes Antstream Arcade, a platform with a catalog of more than thousand retro games carefully curated, in which a single account can be activated on multiple devices, such as consoles, consoles and tablets.
‘Play Antstream Arcade on your own terms, whether you’re at home on your computer, using the Amazon Fire Stick, or on your phone or tablet while on the go ‘, it reads in the website of the platform.
It is not necessary to download any, because everything is through the cloud.
Among the aspects that stand out most is a library of arcade games of different genres that will be expanding, social challenges to overcome in scores (and show off on the leaderboard) others who also know how to play these titles, and a new esports format in which there will be tournaments every week.
The games are from arcadias and from platforms such as Atari, Commodore 64, Amiga and ZX Spectrum, and some of the more than a thousand titles available are Space Invaders, Asteroids, Pac-Man, Bubble Bobble, Double Dragon Y Metal Slug X, all included in a 100% legal way through permits and licenses.
The service can be contracted for a monthly fee of $ 9.99 or an annual of 95.88.
