If I'm reading the FAQ correctly you need the founders edition to even play this year and the free stream is only 1080p/30fps, this is a no from me. Must be minimun 60fps for me to even try it. This is the swedish FAQ don't know if different in other countries.

www.stadia.com/faq

Free version offers 1080p 60fps.

Well, that sucks, requiring a Stadia Pro subscription to get 1080p 60 fps or 4K 60 fps.

I think the argument can be made that these gamers would have been interested in a console anyway since they will be using services that offer console/pc games. If Stadia delivers on high quality streaming at 10-35 mbps while having enticing first party games in the coming years then I see them being a serious threat to Sony and MS.

1080p 60fps will be available for free. 4K 60fps is for the sub.

Free version offers 1080p 60fps.

"De som inte prenumererar kan streama i upp till 1080p med 30 bildrutor per sekund" = "Those who do not subscribe can stream up to 1080p with 30 frames per second" this is what the faq says for me though.

Beaten DOOM ultra-nightmare with NO endless ammo-rune, 2x super shotgun and no decoys on ps4 pro.

Seems pretty filthy business in my view, having to pay full whack for one game. Kinda forces people to go the subscription method.

Really could not give a hoot about PS or Xbox gamers.



There is still one giant roadblock for game streaming, in the US at least. Data caps. The largest ISP in the US, Comcast, has a 1 TB per month data cap. If my math is right, you will go through your entire monthly cap with just 63 hours of 4K Stadia streaming at 35 mbps.
