Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Stadia running on a Switch

Doubt this will be available at launch day, but I could see it coming not soon after.  Nintendo is already letting XBox Live onto their platform.  Why not stadia?  Only reason might be if they have a secret deal with Microsoft to combat Google.  Very likely that Nintendo will allow Stadia too though.

Then, yeah, Switch becomes the ultimate gaming platform, all Nintendo first party plus all third party games on one device.  It gets bonus points if you can also use any Switch controller with Stadia instead of the Google one.

Wasn't it confirmed that they are not allowing XBox Pass on the console, just the XBox Live app and whatever individual game MS decides to publish on the Switch?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Didn't hear that.  Anyone have a link to that?

The Google controller is actually pretty clever, because it doesn't connect to your device, but directly with your Wi-FI and through it with your gaming instance in the cloud. This reduces input-lag. Also your controller can be used, regardless if the device you use for viewing (could even be only a TV) supports the controller.

Stadia requires a internet browser, so thats not gonna happening ;)

And their Stadia app couldn't be a browser?

More specifically, as an app, a browser would be totally irrelevant.

That actually makes sense.



Stadia seems too much integrated to google envirement, chrome, youtube, assistent, etc.
An stadia app might incorporate all of them. It might be an chrome browser.
But for now, Nintendo do not allow a browser on switch (there is, but nintendo do not allow users to use it).
So, or google will allow a subpar experience on switch, that do not integrate all the features, or nintendo will finally allow a browser on switch... But I dont think the companies will follow this route. Maybe nintendo is so closed minded on switch for stadia.
I think xcloud is more likely on switch.
