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.

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.

I don't know what the big deal is. I had a game streaming service back in 2001 that worked just fine. You had to download just a small portion of the game and it ran online with dial up. Of course, multiplayer wasn't an option for those games, but if they could pull that off back then, it should be pretty decent now.

You're a fucking idiot. Back in 2001 games barely made the 1g mark. You're talking about 50 to 60 gigs of download within a 4 hour gameplay you will need a robust internet connection, which is data that's is just being process and erased. Thats why there is no minimum requirement, and none of the game sdownload a small portion to boot up to give the bandwidth some slack. It's just straight download. The general public shares internet and are not particularly interested in video games. Who ever came up with that idea of streaming games is a fucking jack ass and knows nothing about the video game market or how it works.

I assumed streaming would be just the control inputs going out and the audio/visual data coming in with the processing happening elsewhere. That would not need tens of gigs an hour.

It would still suck, be a laggy piece of shit and completely unusable if your internet connection was slow, unreliable or patchy. And it would put an extra strain on local infrastructure too.

Sigh.. come on now man. Why are you being dumb.

Because Stadia is entirely cloud-based, it uses a significant amount of data to maintain a stable picture and responsive controls.
At the best possible quality, Stadia will use 35 Mbps of data per second, or about 15.75GB per hour. At Google's recommended minimum quality, Stadia will use about 4.5GB per hour.

Maybe for you. But I'm talking about the whole world. Some people have data caps or their ISP dont offer that type of robust internet service or it's too expensive for their budget and after a while of use I know for sure your ISP would bottleneck you because of the huge amounts of data you are using. I mean If you got money to burn and you want to give your money to google go for it. But it's stupid for you to think this possible for the masses.

I don't have fast internet and this only works when everyone in the house is sleeping, but damn it's so awesome when it works.

The way it changes quality in real time and streams all the input/audio/video is some pretty advanced stuff. That and the amount of money Google is investing in this and allowing people to play for free really makes this seem like it could be the next big thing. It's at least going to be huge in the places that have decent internet access. It's way too convenient and just it works so well. For somebody like me who can't afford a gaming rig this is literally a life changer.

I can play PUBG for the next 2 months for free without a gaming rig and that is pretty awesome.

Wrong. It is basically just an open beta. The games will come eventually. Even if it it's much smaller selection it will have lots of good AAA stuff. There's way too many games in existence. There is no reason Google can't compete with Sony and Microsoft for the market.

And it isn't laggy if your internet can handle it. It does an incredible job of changing quality to compensate for your internet speed without being uplayable. ISPs are lagging behind but there are still tons of places that this can work just fine, especially in the larger cities. Future ISPs will have to compete with broadband internet the same way cable competes with Netflix. Internet speeds are just a temporary issue, but Stadia isn't nearly as intensive as people think or I would have never been able to play it.

Once you actually get to try it you'll see it's amazing. I didn't think it would work at all but it worked decently for me.
Ridley - Sun, 10 May 2020 04:53:22 EST BJtLvEfC No.752389 Reply
The problem with stadia is that if your internet goes down you can't play games. In big cities the internet does sometimes go down, but sometimes you get nationwide provider outages and in rural areas it's always 10 years behind the standard people like google expect.

Spotify's music on demand is still a heap of shit that won't let you just play music the way you want to play it and I've seen whole back catalogues vanish because of labels being shits (not even big ones necessarily). I can't imagine games via internet would be any more liberating.

I've played this in 3 different places and had no issues. I think people are overestimating the amount of data this uses. It's worth a shot. You got 2 months of free games without paying a cent. PUBG alone makes it worth it. I've played it practically nonstop since I got Stadia. I am really loving it.

So the idea is basically Steam meets Netflix?
That will probably take over because normies like convenience, when 5g is mainstream etc.

I don't really care one way or the other but it's really hard to take you fags seriously because all you do is cry about everything (when was the last time the internet liked a video game? Never) so I don't really believe the circlejerk over it's "failure" yet. Or maybe it will, didn't google try to make a FB rip off social media a few years ago that no one used. They do make mistakes. But the general model seems like something that would be popular eventually.

It kicks ass and is definitely the future of gaming and I don't care what anyone says because I am always right about this shit, just like I was right about VR. I am personally having a blast on it and it has so many benefits over PC or console gaming.

The platform is still in beta though despite what it may pretend. It's missing tons of features and PC/android/Chrome all have features that the others are missing. A lot of people are using chrome extensions to add more features and make it run smoother.

It's really lacking in games right now. DOOM64??? On 4k 60fps? Give me a fucking break. I have faith google has the power to get good games in the future, but even if they don't this technology is way too amazing. Gaming will never be the same again. Maybe other companies pick up this concept and improve on it. Maybe Steam adds it. Maybe Google wins the race. Only time will tell. But I'm telling you this shit is amazing. And the biggest unintended benefit is that it eliminates like 90% of hackers. Hacking has become such an issue in gaming and there is no anti cheat that works 100%. I've heard PUBG is unplayable now and that because of Stadia people are finally enjoying it again.

How is it not like Steam + Netflix? It's a library of games with friend list and multiplayer.(Steam) And you pay a monthly subscription to stream them without downloading anything.(Netflix)

The only way you could aimbot Stadia is to literally hack google servers or create an aimbot that works purely by scanning the screen for object recognition. As far as mods and other hacks, they're basically nonexistent now.

This does bring up the issue of mod support which is perhaps the biggest downside to Stadia. If they can create mod support that will be huge.

Netflix doesn't charge you a la carte for the shows you watch. If Stadia offered a decent library of games with the subscription, that would've been an excellent idea. But no, they decided to charge you for both the sub, and again for each new game, just like a console or PC, except with literally none of the other benefits. You could've already streamed most games you've already purchased off Steam using GeForce Now or one of the dozens of other streaming services that have come and gone, and didn't try to sucker gullible rubes into re-buying content.

And nobody is wasting time hacking Stadia matches because the player base is minuscule, and probably going to be abandoned within a year or two like all of Google's other shitty ideas.

Yeah but they can't see through walls, speed hack, instantly track headshots, etc...
Let them do it honestly. It's just like a super skilled bot without access to special powers.

Computer Vision hacks tend to be difficult to install and tend to be more of hobby projects than anything. They are not going to ruin a game like memory hacking would.

And they are incredibly difficult to make in a way that would completely remove the need to have skill. They're not undetectable either. Use behavior/pattern recognition and you can easily tell which players have super-human skills with relatively perfect accuracy.

It can but you need a robust internet connection like 60 to 100mbps. low-end of 4k at just hitting their minimum of 35 mbps, you're looking at burning 16 GB an hour. For a gamer that plays 3-4 hours a day, you'll be hitting 1 TB of bandwidth by mid-month. You're ISP gonna bottle neck you eventually. It doesn't make sense for people have a data plan every month.

IIRC ISP's famously denied bottlenecking until it was proven via class action lawsuit. I wouldn't believe a word your ISP says. How does being in Canada make them less greedy? Are there more regulations or something? And if those regulations aren't being enforced you can bet that companies will ignore them and make billions. If they get caught they might pay a few million. Easy investment.
