Sure you can. Rumor has it that the name of Google's Japanese subsidiary is Capcom.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

So, a waste of money and time as far as I can see. Maybe with time things will change, but it's the same thing as with pretty much every console at release. There's just no reason to even consider getting it until at least 12 months later.

You keep laughing but when the new expensive next²gen hardware will becoming, many will settle for streaming instead of spending 549$ on a new box.

Btw all of you have a Stadia account already and you are just one click away from buying games there.

Everyone had a Google+ account back in the day, and that didn't help it at all.

A different product in different circumstances performed differently.

Imagine Nintendo would offer streaming. Not just plebeian style but running games on OC hardware so you can stream BotW in real 4K60fps*.

*14.99$ month SuperStream deal, limited offer.



What a surprise.....Looks like Yong was mostly correct about the pricing, but I'm still not sure he wasn't just making an educated guess.

I'm not sure what you mean with that comparison, but if Nintendo released a streaming service... it would still have all the drawbacks of all streaming services: lack of ownership, limitations of users' internet speeds, performance issues not present in physical hardware, not being able to play without an internet connection, dependance to a monthly fee... And if Nintendo released it with a similar weak lineup and pricing model, people's reactions would be pretty much the same.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I hope Google makes this thing work. I don't want them to poison the streaming well. It's not gonna get my money at this point though.

What country is the currency quid from and what is the rate to euro?



Hunting Season is done...

That's a perfect example of what digital only market is gonna be. Full control of game distribution by one company which can set the price as high as it wants. Would be interesting to see if discounts would be a thing on this service or not.

It feels like Google rushed Stadia out. The lack of games and the few games available seem to be overpriced. Microsoft is doing it right with xCloud with not rushing it and having it linked with Game Pass. xCloud will have far more games when it officially launches.

This isn't to stay that Google won't turn it around and substantially increase the number of games on it. But without the games there is little reason to buy into Stadia. 

It's not as easy for Google to just increase the number of games like Microsoft did (from 4 to 50+). They need to convince developers first to make games for Stadia in order to put them there. Microsoft already has thousands of games available which they can put on xCloud anytime they want.

Quid is used in Great Brittain. It means Pound Sterling. In Ireland it means Euro now.

Today, 1 pound sterling is worth 1.17 euro.
