    All depends on their revenue model imo. If they take the Google/Apple "walled garden" approach (as they seem to be doing..) then yes, this will and should crash & burn. If they take a more sensible approach where you don't need to rebuy your games....then who knows maybe it will work.

    Sadly I suspect they will take a Google style approach and screw it up. I'm ever hopeful though

    It wouldn't surprise me if they go the Google route either, but I expect that there will likely be the ability to integrate with Twitch.

    I'm very confident Amazon will will crash and burn in this endeavour.

    Games look terrible too.

    If it's like Amazon Prime video then it will suck hard. I'm amazed at how big their cloud service is yet it takes an age for a video to start playing and seeking to a different point in the video is a nightmare.

    Stadia bombed because of its terrible execution launching a product that needed years more in development with polish, a wide variety of platforms optimized for cloud usage and content (it had none of these)

    Amazon has Twitch which is highly valuable in numerous ways.

    Ultimately Amazons success comes down to execution, how good the games are and integration with Twitch, if can execute on all of those it stands a decent chance.
