"Mortal Kombat 11 costs fifty quid. I can get NetherRealm's wonderful fighting game for under thirty quid from Amazon. Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which came out over a year ago, also costs fifty quid. That's under twenty quid on Amazon. Kine is twenty quid, whereas it's £16 on the Epic Games store. Red Dead Redemption 2 is £54.99 on Stadia. I can get Rockstar's cowboy epic from Amazon for just over £40"

How much are google being charged?



It feels like Google rushed Stadia out. The lack of games and the few games available seem to be overpriced. Microsoft is doing it right with xCloud with not rushing it and having it linked with Game Pass. xCloud will have far more games when it officially launches.

This isn't to stay that Google won't turn it around and substantially increase the number of games on it. But without the games there is little reason to buy into Stadia.

I bet google will pull it within two years.



It was the same with digital movies at the start. Old movies were put up for more than you would pay at release for the blu-ray. Early adopter fee.

Makes it easier for Google to have a bunch of games for 50% off soon after launch.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

You keep laughing but when the new expensive next²gen hardware will becoming, many will settle for streaming instead of spending 549$ on a new box.

Btw all of you have a Stadia account already and you are just one click away from buying games there.

Everyone had a Google+ account back in the day, and that didn't help it at all.
