It’s insane to think that it’s only been 25 years since we were linking up two computers together with Parallel / Serial cable to have a deathmatch on Duke3D, manage logistics with Transport Tycoon, or get three of your buddies together for a race on Lotus 2. Well.. Uh.. Now we can play games from other rooms in the house! How mad would THAT be?
OK, not too much of a crazy thought- but it’s incredible to see that very low latencies are now possible. Streaming a current-gen game title to your arcade cab in the basement really isn’t a bad way to go- It’s actually REALLY feasible and can be done on the cheap.
Video below shows users how to:
- Bring up the Android screen by using the pandory.sh script
- Install APK files, such as Moonlight and PPSSPP
- Use Moonlight to stream Steam from a GeForce powered gaming PC
- Use and configure PPSSPP
There’s no excuses anymore, really. You can actually slam most applications / emulators into Steam- N64 / PSP / PS2 / PS3 / Saturn / Amiga / (insert difficult things to emulate)
It’s all good!
