Oh no! They do understand it. This reaction is out of fear. 

Fear of what? Being satisfied with how gaming works now is a bad thing? You go full Google, I don't care. Im sure youre a huge fan and supporter of PSNow.

That streaming and mobile will traditional game unattractive. The idea that SONY, MS and Nintendo when they hiw successful it is. The idea that traditional consoles will come to an end. That's the real beef.

It happens every time.   Digital gaming sucks why would I download a 7 GB game while I can just put a disc and play it? Download a few games and I will be soon reach my data cap!

That's why physical gaming will always be the safest system around. And even with traditional digital-only, you download the game once and it's in your hard drive forever. Everytime you want to play with streaming, you have to charge it on your internet data cap. In the long run it depends more on it.

Sure but as an old member on VGchartz we had threads like this over and over again...we had even those movie blu ray threads with fanatics who didn't believe streaming movies services will be that popular and most will still buy movies.    You don't like streaming games like PSNOW I am fine with it and I was not happy with the service but I see the appeal for others and I believe it has a place on the market.

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.

What's convenient about being able to play anywhere if it requires a mobile internet connection that's prohibitively expensive, has lag issues, and potentially is full of ads like youtube is?

Most people in the modern world have that mobile internet connection already, lag is not remotely the issue it used to be and is only getting better, and unless you plan on playing $60 games for free I don't see where that baseless speculation comes from.



Well, this is new.

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.

There's no reason you couldn't play this on your TV.

The potential for this is near limitless. The convenience is obviously one thing. The other is that hardware upgrades aren't forced on the consumer. In the same way that Youtube's resolution increased in time without needing to buy a new computer, within reason you'll have that same constant upgrade in power without needing to buy new hardware.

Even if you're someone who likes playing at home, unless you're someone who literally never leaves your house, just the convenience of being able to play on another TV in your home or in a friend's house or in a hotel room instantly with just a controller is convenient on a level even beyond what the Switch provides.

Well unless you don't have great internet speed. I can play on my current consoles in a vacuum. This just seem like something for extremely lazy people.

... unless any of those places don't have a great internet connection, then I guess you're just twiddling your thumbs. Ever try to stream youtube in a busy airport?

It looks cool and seems to have a lot of nice features. I've yet to hear about pricing though, so that worries me a bit. Probably still be $60, with some rental options. I might try this in the future, my main worry though is that something like this is that game prices will never fall in price.

Im not scared at all. It wont be successful. If it by some miracle does, then good on them for bending the rules of reality. And I hope Sony, MS and Nintendo goes to Hogwarts and learns how to do it too.

Imagine while playing Stadia and you playing Dark Souls 4 against a boss, Suddenly an Ads shows up just ruining your games. But of course a you will not have ads if you pay more or probably less ads , but then you pay more.

Another thing to consider is the loot box will be hell crazy just like in google store.

You are in the middle of a game on Stadia. Click here and you will be super powerful! ($1.99)



Hahaha.....where is that guy hat was talking about console....

Streaming is ad has always been a great thing... and no matter how many different things its called is nothing new.

I'll definitely give it a shot... if google does this right it should cost me absolutely nothing to do so. What google needs to do though is make it such that whatever game you buy can be played across platforms.



Seems kind of interesting but I have pretty much zero trust in Google... and I'm also highly skeptical of the costs. I mean, I expect this to be a subscription service, and I don't have enough time to justify paying for a subscription.
