In recent years, the gaming industry has enjoyed strong growth, which was further fueled by the COVID-19 pandemic. Against this backdrop, technological advancements, growing interest, and the expanding demographics of gamers contributed to the growth of cloud gaming. This perspective is poised to lead to on-demand gaming becoming mainstream.
Unlike the classic gaming model, cloud gaming allows users to play their games on-demand – everywhere and across different devices – without powerful local hardware. Computational processes are executed in remote data centers.
According to the gaming research and analytics company, Newzoo, the cloud gaming industry generated twice as much revenue in 2021 than it did the previous year. Even more growth is expected in the coming years, with over 6,5 billion in revenues in 2024. The Boosteroid cloud gaming platform is one of the growth contributors.
The service offers various advantages over classic, user hardware-based gaming. Boosteroid drastically reduces user spending on gaming equipment and grants continuity across devices. Since the games are hosted on a powerful remote server and streamed to the gamer’s machine, users can seamlessly play the same game across multiple devices, be it their outdated PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or even TV.
Moreover, Boosteroid lets users launch their favorite Windows-only titles on Android, Linux, macOS, or iOS. To start playing, you just have to log in to the website through any popular browser or install one of the dedicated applications. Your game progress is synced to all devices under the same account, but it’s important to save and close the session properly once you’re done playing.
While different TVs use different operating systems, we are doing our best to make the Boosteroid application available for all of them. We’ve recently partnered with such giants as TCL Electronics and Philips, and there are more to come.
The Boosteroid Gamepads app for Smart TVs, available both on Google Play and App Store, makes the gaming process even more convenient for those who prefer big screens.
Boosteroid offers an extensive library of games, including free-to-play, indie, and triple-A titles. We let our users integrate games they already own on digital distribution platforms like Steam, EGS, Wargaming Game Center, etc. With no need to install the games supported by the service, you can save your device storage for other needs.
To get the best possible cloud gaming experience, you should have a high-speed internet connection and be close enough to the cloud-gaming provider’s servers. Boosteroid requires a connection of at least 15 Mbps which eliminates most interruptions or buffering. Our servers are hosted across 11 hubs in Europe, making us an excellent choice for those living on the continent.
To guarantee a quality gaming experience and constantly improve the service, Boosteroid partners with Asus, Intel, and other companies. Recently, we partnered up with some biggest Smart-TV manufacturers, including such giants as TCL Electronics and Philips. We expect to establish more partnerships shortly.
Boosteroid has big plans for 2022. Expansion to the US and Mexico with 6 and 2 server hubs. We’re also optimistic about establishing server hubs in the Middle East and MENA, and negotiations are already underway. Besides, we keep updating our server architecture to add virtual machine power.
With more people and technology companies interested in video gaming and looking for easier ways to access games, the future of the cloud gaming industry looks bright.
