Imagine the personal data google can sell with something like this. Yep. Never going to go there. With the leadership of Phil Harrison, I can comfortably believe this will die.

They also have Jade Raymond. Get Amy Hennig in there too and they will have the trifecta of bad luck.



Not sure if this was discussed but you'll also need a min. of 25mbps to get 1080p at 60fps

Not sure if its a big deal to many of you here but I know many around me that don't go for high internet speeds, afterall Netflix is probably the biggest thing and that only needs 3mbps to stream HD.

I'm sure you know, but your average joe will probably assume that having 25mbps of connection will mean perfection.

LOL thats what i was thinking 25 mbps will be sustainable but not ideal, not to mention what happens when one more Stadia player/User wants to hop on and play a different game on the same connection. Also right now i can buy a 2 ps4 games for the price of 25mbps connection every month so i think globally it will be a hard sell.

I think "It will explode". Its entrails splattered all over the place and everyone. People will be disgusted by the gore and awful smell. Like in Galaxy Quest, when they beamed up the pig lizard. Thats how its going to turn out.

Exclusives they have? Prbly candy crush clones and indie-cheap stuff. After all, they will have to aim for a large, sufficiently bandwithed audience.

A streaming service could never be sustained with AAA games at the lets say $15 a month or whatever. What's the average AAA budget? Multiply that by half a dozen, how many subscriptions would you need to sell to make that money back?

Personally it will be like game pass, quantity rather than quality.



It will eventually succeed because convenience always wins over fidelity, it happens in any medium.
This doesn't mean the demand for dedicated gaming hardware will cease to exsist anyway.



The last Blockbuster is about to close. EB Games/ Gamestop is headed in the same direction. Still years away, however.



Where's the option for "It looks like it will be okay."?

Biggest issue it has is competition. As in the games it has are only what it can get it's hands on, so anything not available on PC, anything Nintendo or PS exclusive. I'm not even sure MS would like their biggest games on there while they would be fine for them to be on steam as it is in direct competition with Game Pass.

What was the streaming gaming service that launched a few years ago and failed? OnLive, that's it. Failed. Okay so it'd didn't have a brand like google behind it but still.



Hmm, pie.
