I wonder if you can use your TV if it has Smart TV functionality.
I do have some HDMI stick somewhere, lol. With Android on it. That is Linux based as well. It can turn any TV into a smart TV as long as it has a HDMI port available.
But i can easily see where this is going. You will only need a smart TV with a fast internet connection to be able to stream-play games in the near future. No more need for an expensive gaming rig.
This is some kind of in between solution, where your gaming rig becomes the server.
But turning your home network into a private lan party is also something cool to do, haha
Steam is way ahead with all kinds of cool stuff. Pushing boundaries every day. Maybe EA will come to its senses and start distributing games through Steam again. Origin will never reach Steam level and neither will Uplay or other launchers.
