Default Biohazard 7: Cloud Edition

Quote:
Resident Evil 7 is coming to Nintendo Switch, though its not really what youd expect from your typical port. The title will be released exclusively on the Japanese eShop this week and will only be playable via the cloud.

While Capcom has stated that players will be able to experience the game on Switch while playing both docked and undocked, they will still need a stable internet connection to do so.

Resident Evil 7 Cloud will include all four DLC packs released on console and PC, thus making it a complete collection for the seventh iteration in the series. Players will be able to experience the first 15 minutes of the game for free, but will be prompted to buy a 180-day service pass if they'd like to keep playing past the trial period.

Pricing is currently set at 2,000, which roughly translates to $18.01. Save files will also be stored in the cloud, rather than the console itself. Capcom has stated that save files linked with inactive accounts may be subject to deletion.

Maybe the persistent internet connection means this will be streamed to keep graphic fidelity? I see no other reason.

*edit* US Gamer is thinking the same thing.

The game will cost 2,000 yen ($18.02, but probably $19.99 on our shores), but that won't get you the full game. Instead, 2,000 yen gets you 180 days of playtime, and we assume you'll have to buy another 180 days once that's up. Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version is only a 45MB download and requires a constant internet connection. 180 days is likely enough time to finish all the content available though.
A 45MB download guarantees this is streaming.

If this succeeds then I guarantee you Capcom will make Monster Hunter Worlds available next in this manner.

This better not succeed.

Renting a game for only a handful of days, no saves, and streaming a game is not good for the future of gaming.

To be fair, 6 months is a little more than "a handful of days."

Depending on how much free time you have, it might take you longer than 6 months to beat a game.
