All of this sound gibberish. Where is the games, the exclusives. Rip my data plan and my Internet . Too bad Streaming will not replace console or PC forever.

This is not for me. I know publishers cant wait for physical media to disappear, but Im not ready for it.

I'm keeping an open mind. My main concern is latency and image quality, but if they nail that, this could be insane. After that, it really comes down to which games they get. Ready or not, streaming your games is probably where the industry is headed. 

So I sometimes have trouble with YouTube and Twitch videos. They quality goes down automatically or the video just stops. Will this work seamlessly for me?



I gotta say i'm very interested in seeing where this goes, a lot of what they showed seemed really impressive, or at least has potential.

I'm gonna take an easy guess and say the internet where I am probably isn't fast enough to use it, but eventually i'd be willing to give it a try.

Just disappointed they didn't show any first party games, but I guess we'll see during the summer.



I will just copy paste what I said on ERA


It’s a nice concept - streaming and all

But it’s gonna take years for the tech and requirements to develop worldwide

If Google can’t do it, I don’t think anyone can lol, so good luck to them

Is Stedia a youtube companion app or what. Stedia seems  Social Crap Network for 13 year old. Its not about games it's about youtube wievs.

Where is the real gaming commitment to Community ? Where are the games, where are the new experiences.

It blows my mind that it doesn't seem like people aren't appreciating how disruptive this is. Convenience is king, and being able to play anything anywhere, being backed by a company as big as Google is going to rock gaming. I'm personally excited for this.



Well, this is new.

Read.

I'm excited for the future of this. I'll wait for the price tho.



I mean, for those that never want to deal with having anything at all, and simply streaming everything to a receiver, then that's their go to plan, but for people like me, who want their digital downloads and games installed, and not streamed, let alone those who love physical, we're well and truly out of luck.

Also, for a streaming box, they sure like to tout TF power, yet it's designed to primarily stream content, rather than running it directly off the box itself.

This just comes off as a wannabe teevo box trying to muscle into the console market, yet at the same time they don't want to play with the big boys, but want to appeal to the normies instead.

Can't say I'm impressed.



                                       

Impressive.
Erm, how does US have data caps? I'm in the UK, they do not exist.
My issue is if I have a PS5, why would I need this? Also wondering if the resolution scales, macbook pro has a strange one.

Whats so great about it? I don't mind gaming on a console. I don't want to play God Of War on my phone or a laptop. I don't go out and suddenly get desperate to play a game. I just wait until I get home where Im comfortable.
