      Think I'll just stick to my trusty switch.... And buying my games in store like tradition. Just feels better preordering and buying my games with the money I worked hard to get, can't put a price on that experience.

    I honestly hope this fails, this is basically an attempt at full monetisation of the gaming industry, and it disgusts me.
    Charging people a monthly fee to basically have access to a server they may not use every day. That varies greatly depending on internet speed.
    My advice: but a regular console, in the long run, it’s probably gonna be cheaper

    4:40 dude you get a chrome cast ultra ($50) 3 months pro subscription ($30) and a Google stadia controller ($50. Just do the maths) and that not even a huge amount if you consider other controllers is almost the same. And bro, Google is also a company which tries make profit rather than social service

    This whole thing is truly revolutionary in my opinion and done fairly well considering how new it is. With more time and fixes I feel this could be the future

    I’m confused as to how this works? On multiplayer games are you playing with pc players or does stadia have its own servers (like Xbox and Ps4)?

    So you pay for a high speed internet service, pay for a very expensive controller, pay for a subscription to stadia, and then also pay for the games you want to play at full price, for a sub-par gaming experience... why wouldn't you just buy a switch or something? It would pay for itself in like 9 months and has the added advantage of being portable and actually working properly. I remember in the 90s it seemed ludicrous that you'd be able to stream live tv over the internet because it took minutes just to load a website, so maybe in another 20 years we'll be in a position where speeds are so good that this works properly, but something needs to happen about the pricing model. Full price for games that you don't even have offline access for, while also paying for a subscription service, just seems unattractive to me.

    This is how they should do it. If you already own the game digitally on any platform the game should be free that way paying for the service would be more justifiable. And if you buy the game from Stadia then the service is free for that game win/win they'll get way more subscriber's from other platforms and buyers for those who can't afford to pay for a console or just don't want to.

    Ya know, I think it’s worth noting another thing about this. Say that you live in a place that got ravaged by a natural disaster. But ya save your Xbox or whatever. That means you don’t have to wait till the internet is up to play.

    Yeah, 130 dollars, plus a 10 dollars a month. That seems a *lil* too much. But as a person with not that much money, even if I don’t get the subscription I still have to *REBUY* all the games I used to have.
