Forums - Gaming Discussion - What if google stadia were to fail?

In first 6 months? would they panic and buy 1 huge AAA publisher like say, Ubisoft or EA, cd project red? to attract gamers when stadia actually has real exclusives AAA worthy? We know that small studios putting exclusive stadia games aint getting gaming forums hyped about stadia? So, a major AAA 3rd party purchase with yearly exclusive games will save stadia if it were to go red ? If that were too happen ? would you miss someone like say EA?

Well if the service is failing and they need games that draw, a consistent reliable company that isn't tied up in more recent controversy would be key, otherwise chalk another one up for the Google trash bin.

It would mean that there would be no more potential growth in the gaming sector ...



What exactly is the investment required for a streaming service like that? It seems to me (who is admittedly uneducated on this matter) that the costs would be a drop in the bucket for a company like google. They presumably already have a lot of the infrastructure, and there is no actual hardware beyond the controllers to manufacture. I'm guessing they could pretty easily survive a slow take off. If anything, I would say this is a soft launch for stadia. It's hard to market it when so many people already have a PS4 or XBox One and both systems are only 130 dollars more expensive than the stadia controller alone (although it works with other controllers I think). The real push for it will come when the next next gen consoles are launched. Suddenly when playing next gen games costs at least 400 dollars, the stadia becomes a way more attractive option.



Google wants an all or nothing approach, and it's easy to scare away. If Stadia were to fail Google would close it, people who bought stuff there would be shit out of luck because they didn't actually own anything, the exclusives Google had funded would go to other platforms, and their developers would stay in Google doing nothing of note until they are dissolved.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Google would just drop it, like they did with so many other things in the past.
