Not for another generation or two. Not mobile, but streaming will replace consoles eventually. Too many people not taking Stadia whatever it's called seriously enough.

Because it's Google.  Who are notorious for both abandoning projects rapidly and crippling their own projects through bizarre decision making.

Honestly i don't mind being wrong or being percieved as wrong. Its a good discussion to be had right now. Now my assumption might not have happend in the timeframe i set but wouldnt it be great to have for lets say 10 -20 euros a month extra a device you would have had otherwise anyway that can stream or play what consoles or older pcs can play aswell hell maybe even highend pcs with enough technological advancements? Instead of simply saying no, think with me

Honestly, no.  I don't want to play games on my tiny ass phone screen.  And if I'm going to have to hook it up to my TV or a monitor anyway, then I might as well just stick with a console.  Especially against a cost of 10-20 Euros a month extra.  A dedicated console + games would be price equivalent at the worst over a 5-7 year lifespan of the console

There's also a critical flaw in your implied argument.  There's not going to be a single streaming service at €10-20 per month.  There's going to be a number of them.  Each with their own exclusives and features.  You're dramatically underestimating the cost to the consumer.

Even if Stadia were going to cost that much it wouldn't offer many games of worth. Stadia would just get generic 3rd party AAA games. Any exclusives of any sort just wouldn't show up on the system. Imagine if Stadia had launched at the start of 2018. Here's all the quality new games the service would have in 2018...

And that is really stretching it, because who knows if Namco or Capcom would really want to put their games on a service at launch like that. MH World is only just now coming to Gamepass, so if Stadia had been out in 2018, it likely would just now be coming to Stadia as well.

Why are you claiming those are the only games it would get?

It's not the only games it would launch with. But those are all the good games from 2018 that are not exclusives. So on a year by year basis the library would be limited compared to any other option. MS has their own services that they will want to promote, so no MS exclusives on Stadia. Sony and Nintendo won't bother either. PC exclusives are unlikely to make it to Stadia due to their niche audiences.

That's not even half of them.

Another issue is this:
-The Wii sold better than the PS3 and X360, despite being an overclocked Gamecube
Wii U on another hand flopped because of marketing, look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SChWdprUnzw


There are 2 problem about the power of PS4 and XB1:
-People only look the pricetag, that one of the reasons why Wii sold better than PS3 and X360
-The PS3 and X360 caused damage to Sony and Microsoft in their economic: https://www.vg247.com/2013/01/07/xbox-360-and-ps3-losses-total-8-billion-ex-sony-employee-paints-grim-future/

3 Billions in 2005= 3.56 Billions in 2013, 5 Billions in 2006= 5.78 Billions in 2013
They need to make profits with PS4 and XB1 at day one or they gonna have a economic crisis in their hands, specially Sony

Argh! You're right. I hit the wrong button on Gamerankings. I was using XB1 as my base and removing any MS Studios owned games. But I forgot that XB1 games often don't get as much review coverage as other platforms. So by hitting the "with at least 10 reviews" button I was accidentally excluding a lot of really good stuff.
