Depends on lineup and quality. But more importantly the price of the ps5. If the ps5 comes in at $500 with $60 a year for online play, yeah I may end up going Stadia. Especially if the ps5 ships with a HDD that will require a $100 upgrade. And if the ps4 controllers aren't compatible with the ps5, which is another $60. The ps5 overall price tag will dictate how appealing Google's price structure is.

The predicted input thing has me not wanting to do this.

Jaaa? I had to look it up. Amazing. To quote Han Solo:



- "If you have the heart of a true winner, you can always get more pissed off than some other asshole."

I will definitely give it a shot, but not until I can do so without a big, upfront purchase. The idea of game streaming is very attractive to me. I'm not sure that the tech is really ready yet though. I definitely want to check it out though.

For what it's worth, I'm more.excited about MS' streaming offerings. Not only does XCloud sound better to me, but MS is a much bigger player in both cloud computing and gaming. So, they should be better positioned to deliver a good service.

Specwise stadia wins, xcloud runs xbox one s hardware, a tester posted a video showing it on a phone, played Gears 5, the latency is unnoticeable, but the stream was just 720P/30FPS. The free version of Stadia will offer 1080p@60FPS games.



I have the Stadia Founder's Edition Pre-Ordered.

The only game I am going to buy is Gylt, since it is the only exclusive they have that intrests me so far. I will pay their $9.99 a month Subscription, and dabble in the games that they offer with it, but other than that, I will only be making full purchases of Stadia Exclusives. My 3rd party gaming will continue to happen on Windows, Xbox, or PlayStation.

I'd rather have Native playback at home. Sony and Microsoft both offer that with Streaming as an option on the go. That is where they are winning this battle for 3rd party's for me. Ideally, we would have an Xbox/PlayStation Phone and Portable line for native playback on the go, but neither company is ready to pull the trigger on that yet unfortunately.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

The subscription model is similar to PS+ or PS Now?
If it is the former, the answer is a resounding No Interest. If it is the latter, then my interest is piqued.

But only streaming? I dunno. I am not anti-streaming and welcome it as a viable option for gaming, but I am likewise not sure how much streaming of games I would actually do taking into account my life style.



I might be interested in Google Stadia if the games were good enough.  Having said that, the games look like the same crap that I didn't want to play on the other consoles.

More like Plus. Paying $10 a month just gets you access to the service. You still have to pay for the games individually. They did say that they will be giving out a game "regularly," whatever that means. And some games will have discounts if you sub. 

I think some people who were excited by this initially will probably be turned off when they find out it's not the Netflix of gaming.
