Yep. Launched with half of the features they promised and a year old games that are available in other platforms for cheaper.

I still doubt the technology is here yet to support mass cloud based gaming.

All the problems 100 million cnet articles have said before lag blah blah blah.

But if they did some how manage to deliver the service as advetised at 15 bucks a month (i have no idea how much it costs that just seems like what they would do) and then buy the games on top for a year you could of just built the PC instead and had a nice stack of games.

The latency has been playable for years. I wouldn't play the first version of Binding of Isaac because the input lag was too great. But I bought a cloud gaming device for a service I can't remember the name of and found that totally playable. I could play games at high quality, including online multiplayer, on my netbook or TV.

It has huge potential. People just actually need to play it and see if it's doable for them. With the right server locations we're talking 15ms additional latency. Which isn't much but is noticeable in some situations.

We may see client versions of games as cloud gaming becomes popular, too. Much like how multiplayer works, server authoritative. Controls are responsive, and then server corrects your position as needed.

Great for upper class suburbanites with high speed internet connections.

Sucks for the rest of us. Consoles will remain until universal internet speeds speed up to handle streaming games.

I could buy a 1tb xbox one for $30 now. Stadia can't compete with those prices.

It's not below their data caps. Which it will blow through about 10 times as fast as playing Overwatch on tether will blow through a 30 GB mobile cap.

Definitely don't do this if you're in a part of the world with data caps on a broadband connection.

Though I've used some country's broadband and just tethered to my phone because it's such garbage. And then the tethered net is faster but still trash...

The whole concept of streaming games is inherently shitty.

I'm glad this lameass attempt to further erode the concept of "owning the fucking game you bought" crashed and burned like this.

Just wait until these things start to sell like hotcakes on Ebay as an oddity and end up on the retro gaming youtube channels of the 2030s.

This is unsurprising and you should be fucking livid. Companies like Comcast got BILLIONS of tax dollars towards improving their infrastructure and they pretty much pocketed it and told the public to go fuck themselves. If that didn't strike a nerve yet, let me rephrase it: They took your money that you worked for, and they purposefully mishandled it so that very little of it actually went towards improving the infrastructure.

There's no excuse to have a garbage internet connection if you live near a significant amount of people in 2019 and you should do something about it.

Talk to your lawyer, your neighbors, your government representatives and fucking vote for people that have your interests.

I mean it's obviously impossible throughout most of the country but there are a bunch of places where people have made this happen.

There's actually a small ISP in the city I went to high school, and like... This is Maine, not California or some shit. They had very very good service, admittedly only in a couple fairly small areas.

This kinda is a thing.

What a joke. If Stadia had had more exclusives, a model similar to Game Pass where you only pay one price instead of a monthly fee on top of paying for the game too, and the shit wasn't laggy, then it probably would be better. This shit is just another OnLive.
