Linux in the mix:
Since I’m not really keen on streaming game services. It is a plus to see Linux in the mix here thanks to Square Enix. Which is also the latest partner to sign on with the game streaming service. But being able to buy from multiple online digital stores is still my preference.
But Blacknut streaming service currently provides access to a professionally hand-picked catalog of over 120 premium games. So now thanks to game streaming technology. Users can instantly launch games on the service without having to download them.
Therefore if your interest is saving device storage space and game discovery costs. Blacknut offers users unlimited access to the service for a monthly subscription of €14.99.
