Shadow Gaming files for bankruptcy

What a shame.... they tried expanding in a short period of time to catch up with demand. It sounds like they’re not sitting down the service right away and are looking for investors to keep them a float. Hopefully the potential list of investors will see the value and keep it going.

I’m subscribed to their service and it’s a neat idea to be renting a powerful gaming pc to play things like Resident Evil 7 or other games that aren’t on the Switch. The reason I haven’t bought a gaming pc because maintaining a PC is costly and spending $3000 for one isn’t appealing. I’d rather pay $14 and have someone keep it up to date. Worth noting that this isn’t like stadia or GeForce now; when you access the shadow launcher you’re greeted with your desktop and you can install any software that you own.

Pardon any typos- I’m typing this on my iPhone.

This is a bit neat, but I ended up buying a gaming PC thru Xidax PC. No probs with the gaming PC at all and had it since 2018.

How much did it cost and can you upgrade it easily? I’m not tech savvy but willing to explore that option.

I spent a bit more than if I bought the parts, but this is likely due to labor costs etc. I haven't upgraded any parts yet, so cannot speak how easy that is/was to do.
