Testing the waters by using MS's blueprint for overcharging customers for basic components of gaming.

I'll be glad when it all blows up in their face, that and their entire streaming model.

That controller doesn’t really look all that good at all. I find the Xbox One controller to be the best of them all.

70 bucks for that noob ass controller. You can tell Google is brand new to this shit. It looks like it's missing some chromosomes.

I am just here to complain about the usage of ABXY. At least make those buttons named different, google. Learn to be creative. I suggest the google color. Red blue green yellow, RBGY. Is it yellow or magenta? Hmmm

Well that controller does use wifi to connect through your router to their servers... That alone would justify the price bump over standard consoles.

Also as a man with no child like hands both controllers are a POS in terms of ergonomics, muscle cramp heaven kid controller pieces of s*** right there. Nintedo's Pro controller is better than both and the X1 controller is perfection.

I’m still miffed by the cost of Nintendo’s pro controller. It’s good and all, but nothing about makes me glad to own one over using my PS4 and X1 options. I’ll throw them a bone though and say it’s at least better than my Steam controller.

So the Sony riding drama queen is back. (I don't like Stadia at all btw). Also, are you really boasting about the DS4's light bar? Isn't that the biggest reason for the batteries running down so fast?

Also, as a dude with adult sized hands, I find the Xbox One controller to be almost perfect. I've used the Ds4. It's good, but Sony seriously needs to place the analogs where the Human thumb naturally rests. And it doesn't look like Stadia is gonna be any better.

I don't think you understand the difference between the two technologies and why its a advantage for Stadia.

Aren't the MSRP of an Dualshock 4 like 60-65 dollars? And it's 70-80 for like a switch controller?

Also, stadia can work with DS4 controllers

Well you can say that about the PS4 as Sony's games are not exclusive to the PS4 when you can watch them on YouTube :)

Actually, the same can be said for nearly every game, definitely all of the x1 exclusives (however miniscule the pickings may be).

I play ALL racing games on my PC, only racing game on PS4 that i actively play is GT:Sport where i use my G29+Shifter, so the only two games where i'm forced to play with the gamepad is Driveclub and WipEout.
So no, you're actually trying to make a ''comeback'' on a wrong person...
And to prove you wrong, because you're not stating ''the obvious'', name a better gamepad at the time when SONY's original Dual Shock for PS1 hit the market... Ergonomics and analog sticks placement aside, SONY standardized 2 Analogue Sticks + D-Pad + 4 face buttons + 4 shoulder buttons.

Yes its pathetic using AA batteries – changing them all the time sucks. That’s why I’ve got mine wired up to a car battery – it lasts for a good couple of years before I need to change it.

Googles uses Wifi to go directly to their servers through your router as apposed to a standard blutooth controller which in Googles case add extra delay/input lag on the controller.

The price is not fully justified but its more than the standard wireless controller which is exactly what the Dual Shock and X1 controllers are.
