As AI and AR slide into our modern day reality, video games are also high scorers among software developers.  The Entertainment Software Association announced that in 2017, 65% of American households contain at least one member who plays video games for 3+ hours per day.  2/3rds of Americans are immersed in the Video Game Software and the figures are steadily growing each year.

Amazon GameLift

Amazon GameLift is an AWS Service which installs, operates, and scales game servers for session-based multiplayer gaming systems.  Recently Amazon added two new services FleetIQ and Spot Instances which relieve AWS computing capacity for 90% savings when compared with On-Demand pricing.  These new features study player latency, instance prices, and spot interruption rates in order to improve game server sessions.  FleetIQ works specifically to select the region with a fleet that has the lowest interruption and rate and cost.
