Know some who were hyping this, we all knew it would suck. Personally the internet is terrible for a lot of people and paying for games you will not own is silly.

I can’t say that I’m terribly surprised. I also won’t lie, this makes me a little happy and relieved. I don’t have a problem with there being more options available to people to play games however I worry about companies trying to kill off other options or at least them making them more limited. I want to play my games on dedicated hardware the plays games from physical formats and will continue to support that for as long as possible.

I believed the hype. I assumed since Google was backing it, it would deliver. That was a bust.

Google Stadia's biggest mistake was over promising way too much and it didn't exactly pan out for Google. I think Nvidia GeForce Now went the better direction with trying to focus on games people already own, and not having a separate eco system. What really hurts Google Stadia is it's separate eco system. So many games lack cross-play, and I don't want to have to rebuy something, and still not be able to play with my friends. Even Destiny which has cross-play has the eco system separated. Also the infrastructure in the US just isn't there. We have so many areas that still lack broadband speeds.

The tech is interesting, I'll give them at. And I don't doubt it'll be the future at some point, but we're just not their yet. Kinda like Google Glass, and AR.

Disappointment would imply there were expectations. So did Take Two think this was viable?

Yeah it was disappointing how bad the fumbled the launch and pricing strategy.

I think the tech itself works well enough.

Not that I ever looked specifically for it, but who carried it retail wise? I can’t say I’ve ever seen one in the wild.

People who wanted to play games but not buy a physical system. Arguable how many of those people exist, but plausible that some do.

If they delivered it at launch with a subscription service similar to gamepass it might have a chance. And also when the tech gets better and it works flawlessly everyone will have high end PC's in a sense. It was a good idea with terrible implementation and pricing.

That is because it is a service meant to be used on many devices. Phones, PC, Chromecast Ultra, etc..

@Pedro: I don't know that's why I was asking. I mean, I remember some people on here talking it up a while back. Don't remember specifically who though. Understandable if they don't want to speak up now, lol. I even remember a thread where it was being discussed what SW should call the Stadia fanboys (a la cows, sheep, lems etc). Someone should do a search in the archives. I'm too lazy.

No one was talking it up. There were two camps. One that game streaming is inevitable future of gaming and the other that is going to die. So far one of four platforms is struggling with Geforce Now, PSNow and Xcloud still running strong. You can always call on your post digging boy to find the thread for you. 😂

I mean, in all fairness a streaming-only service doesn't really have a chance with gamers, at least not right now. Most still prefer physical media, or at the very least the option of having it. Stadia is pretty well suited to casuals who just want to game here and there, and don't necessarily care about physical media.

Is anybody shocked? Stadia shat the bed on entry, and never recovered. As much as I hate the move to streaming, things like this can benefit future technological endeavours.

Even if everyone in the entire world had perfect internet, Stadia still would have sucked.

There is enough latency on your own hardware to make games suck, let alone adding another 30-60+ms at least to a game on top of the latency from your pc's gpu to the monitor then the actual latency you get from the pixels being displayed and mouse/keyboard devices... you can't add any more latency to that and then on top of that take away game ownership from people and think its a good idea.

I remember hearing how bad the graphics often looked also, it was like watching a youtube video that has been compressed too quickly and artifacts all over the place. What is the point in having 4k games streaming if the framerate, latency and graphics are shit?

If your product requires exclusives to be successful, your product is shit.

Google should have went back to fighting the mega ISPs for building solid internet infrastructure. Most regular ISPs that lobbied our govt for perks and invincibility won't support the bandwidth and speed Stadia requires for it to be a viable addition to the other gaming consoles.

It may have worked better in other countries, but being a Google project, I assume they needed US sales for this to be a monetary success.

Dude I'm not playing anything. I was just messing with Mr. Pedro a little. As far as I recall he did not promote Stadia at all (if I'm wrong, I'm wrong, whatever). He just talks up game streaming technology in general. Your whole "Stadia Pedro" thing is stupid and inaccurate. You seem to have some budding obsession with the dude.

Do you always have to play the role of the idiot?

And why is it if i mention someone i'm stalking them or i have an obsession with them, this is the first time I've said "stadia pedro" in like a year, and yet I have an "obsession"

We are also on a forum where people reply to one another, its the norm.

There were threads where everyone but pedro was saying this was going to be a car crash and we were right, while pedro was saying it the way of the future etc, and in the end he didn't even use it LOL.

I could go digging up old threads all the time but i'm not tormeltdownos lol.

Oh and you even said he talks up streaming and yet says he's not promoting Stadia lol

@Pedro said:

@i_p_daily: Yes, you remembered what?

Remember saying streaming is the future, and doing so in Stadia threads, so you were system wars poster boy for Stadia, hence why I called you that in a few threads, luckily for you Stadia is a trainwreck and the name never stuck, phew dodged a bullet with that one lol.

As you can see from the other person i'm quoting in here I apparently have an "obsession" with you, I bet that's news to you and me both, and I think you have a new admirer in reduc LOL.

^Nice essay.

As always, you're the easiest dude to rile up. Just throw out a few key terms and you go nuts, lol.
