In a world where dissatisfaction is much more relevant than content, change is a strong slogan and an easy motivator to get behind. During the first United States Presidential election victory of Barack Obama, "Change" was the word that shaped his entire campaign, motivating the masses. In most cases, change carries positive connotations, becoming a hard thing to argue against. And why wouldn't it be?

Yeti is supposedly Google's "Netflix for Games", where games are hosted on remote servers and then streamed to your televisions via a piece of dedicated hardware. This would operate under a subscription service which will include zero downloads and would let you play any of the games in the entire collection.

Many of the biggest video game developers have become household names as the popularity of games for consoles and PC continues to grow. Names like Electronic Arts, Ubisoft and Rockstar are among the most recognisable in the business’s “megapowers”, with just about everyone having heard of FIFA, Assassin’s Creed and Grand Theft Auto.
