@Galarian_Lassie Hey now, I think we've seen plenty of evidence to show that Konami has no idea what it's doing as far as gaming is concerned. Not exactly the best metric. Though, now that you mention mobile, without the standard upfront price models, it's entirely possible that publishers might try to push even harder for microtransactions. Even if Stadia gates off the worst offenders, it's entirely possible it might become another garbage dump the way mobile has been for years now...

Its launch line-up consists almost entirely of AAA action games that are already available on other platforms. I can't help but hear sirens going off in my head...

I think Google is inflating the views for their Stadia Connect. The comment section has only about 300 comments on a video with a million views on the trending tab. I checked the rest of the videos on the trending tab and all of them have at least one thousand comments (even on videos with a lower view count than the Connect).

I'm very glad this looks rubbish. No tech monopolies in the games industry please. Things are fine just the way they are. Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft and PC have a pretty healthy balance of competition in terms of platform holders. Anything new that comes along is probably gonna make it worse rather than better.

They might've had a chance if they'd revealed a good first party title for launch, but if you have a PS4 or Xbox, I can't see you buying Destiny 2 ls Stadia when you could buy it on your console. First party games are what make your platform different from the competition, as Nintendo has proven time and time again.

It's coming out in a week and I really haven't seen any hype floating about for this.

Maybe it is just me but I just don't see the audience for this. It is clearly not for those who own Xbox One or PS4.

I think they're banking on the mobile market and people who can only afford that one laptop you use for school/work to try it out. Their pricing model kind of ruins it, though, since you basically have to pay a subscription fee and buy the games outright, though I guess a free version is coming out at a later date. Honestly, I'm not sure that market has much interest in the any of the games they've announced...

Yeah, but I don't believe that people who don't want to purchase PS4/Xbox One, wan't to pay 60 dollars per game. But I agree, idea is good, but pricing is not.

They don't seem to have any clear idea themselves and the whole concept behind the product seems internally conflicting.

On one hand, it's kinda appealing to the more casual audience by saying you don't need to buy this massive expensive machine, but on the other hand the main benefit of the service is that you can play the most graphically advanced games without needing the most advanced hardware.

I'm not sure how that adds up. The people who want to play the most graphically advanced games also tend to be the people who are fine with paying for an expensive piece of hardware, because they generally think it'll end up paying for itself over the generation.

Personally I'm looking forward to this as a long term option. The launch line-up might not be amazing but it's great potential going forward. Gonna test it out tomorrow on laptop and on Thursday on my TV with Chromecast. Hoping it runs well.

@blockfight unless you're getting the founders pack you won't be able to play on your TV. They mentioned that only the Chromecasts shipping with the founders pack will work with Stadia at launch and others will work via a yet to be determined update in the future.

Reviews are starting to trickle out and as expected are underwhelming. Main points I've gotten is that the tech itself works pretty much as advertised but the confusion, lack of features essentially make it a beta launch. I think if Google had called it that from the jump it would've mitigated at least some of the negativity.

Edit: great DF article about the tech side

@redd214 I've ordered the founders pack. Says it will arrive on Thursday or Friday. But in the meantime I'll test it out on the laptop.
The launch line up for me actually is good since ive played mostly Nintendo switch games for the last 2 years and missed out on the other consoles big hits.
