Been using it all day today and it works just as advertised. Minimal/unnoticeable lag and picture quality is indistinguishable from the ps4. Granted I have very very fast internet and I live right in the middle of the data center/server capital of the world, literally. Definitely lots of links to iron out but works very well from my experience so far

The Chrome Cast is tiny. Much smaller than my Apple TV.

@Anti-Matter I don't believe that they only stream the games . You must be able to keep them. No one will buy it if it's only streaming and I mean no one.

@Ninfan Well, it actually IS only streaming, and you don't have to buy some box to install games on. What you buy with Stadia, is buying access to an external server that your games will be installed and collected on, but you won't have any kind of console in your home. Stadia is not a device, it's a service.

Well...
Let's just say that this is one for the discerning viewer...

You can tell that the people who run Google Stadia know a lot about video games.

@Toy_Link LOL

@Ninfan @Anti-Matter To add to your conversation, Digital Foundry have found a lot of visual downgrades compared to Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, resolution issues (upscaling) and lag using a +300 Mbps internet connection.

@BlueOcean
So Stadia is even worse than PS4 or Xbox One ?
Glad i choose dedicated console or handhelds by Nintendo or Sony.
Stadia is a big joke for me.
Not even something worthy to try.

Absolutely not. Even if wasn't Google making it, it seems like a really bad product that doesn't really make sense as a business model.

But it IS Google making it, and I dislike and worry about Google because of how much of the internet they already control. Anyone who cares about a free internet should want to limit the power and influence a single company has.

I swear you can not make this up, just as everyone is saying Stadia is dead because the lack of games, updates, etc. for 40 days from Google, they tweet this out:

"The End Draws Near" is starting to sound like a good tagline for Stadia.

@Toy_Link the end is definitely rapidly approaching unless they quickly make some major significant changes to the whole thing. With what's there now and how uninterested they seem to be in it I doubt it'll even be around a year from now.

@Toy_Link I did see a report that they just had 40 straight days of no new games, news or updates. So it sounds like it's already on its way out.

@redd214 Did you end up buying it? Cause I remember you talking about it a while back.

Octane

redd214

@Octane yeah bought it around black Friday time. Got a decent discount with a bundle with some other electronics I needed. It does indeed work great, it's just they've fumbled in so many different ways that I too think it's not long until the just cut they're loses. Plus xcloud even just in a preview state is just so much better

redd214

Octane

@redd214 That's worrying.

I wonder, have you used it to play a game from start to finish (I don't recall a lot of new games coming to Stadia), or was it just something to try and see if it works?

i dont understand how google stadia will work?Basically theyre letting you play games hosted on their computer through internet? i mean it will only increase MS therefore ping (and single player games will act like laggy multiplayer games where youre the player with 200ms ping)

unless im wrong then please correct me
