lol, why do people want things to fail?

I have a few friends who don*t have any current consoles and a playing the 1 or 2 games they want stadia. Its cool for them and doesn't pose  a thread for people who prefer gaming on physical hardware. By the time it does it means it will work like a dream, which would be a win for everyone. 

I don't support a future where corps control ownership like this. Pay full price for something you don't own on top of a sub fee. Google is the worst place for any of them. They shut shit down all the time so once they shut it down. Poof boom your games are gone. The consumer should be in control. Not the corporation. Removing less control for the consumer is anti-consumer. Stadia has failed and will die the death it deserves. I'm against anti-consumer. With BS practices like this in the 90s, I would not be able to play many of my fave games now. In 20 years I can play the games I own. In 2 years Stadia will be listed on the killed by Google Website.

Oh well he's playing Destiny 2 which comes free with Stadia Pro and I believe he's sticking to the free content.

I'm pretty sure you don't need a subscription fee to play the games that you pay for outright.

"a model with no monthly fee where you pay full price for games that you can play on any supported device"

But if you're a pro subscriber you can get discounts  + the free games, literally no different from digital purchases on playstation or Xbox. More options for the consumer is consumer friendly imo, but for people who are afraid of being locked out of content of course streaming isn't for you but its not being mandated. I won't go to lengths to defend them though since I don't use the service or know the ins and outs but I hope that any anti consumer policies they have are ironed out in the years to come. Again more options for gamers, the better.

It'll probably get better down the line, but the inability to have a tangible first party lineup ready for launch is IMO, the most boneheaded mistake Google made with the service so far. I think people can forgive the other problems with Stadia, if it at least had a library of compelling First Party Software exclusive to it, but it doesn't, so its flaws become even more apparent. Third Party Games give a platform market relevance, but First Party Games give a platform its personality. They help define the console's style, its features, its unique position in the market. Right now, aside from the novelty of Streaming, Stadia has no first party games, so as far as I'm concerned, it has no personality, no style, no uniqueness.

Indeed. I was more optimistic about the service and its potential before we had all the details and its underwhelming release. I expected a big first party title that leveraged Stadia's infrastructure for an experience that wouldn't have been possible before (the next step in massive multiplayer, for instance). No first party content in sight to separate the service from the rest has definitely been a huge misstep. If they don't deliver the goods this is gonna continue to flop hard. Maybe MS will pick it up if Google keeps dropping the ball.



Stadia is still a thing?

The 1st party exclusives are where the customers are; nowhere. Seriously, I know a whole lot of nerds (and even other folks) but not a single soul who has Stadia. My impression is that nerds don't care for it one bit, I count myself among these, and more casual consumers don't even know that it exists. And none of this has even touched on their failure to deliver on the lofty technical promises that everyone and their dogs knew weren't feasible to begin with.



Don't worry, they'll announce an exclusive and months before the release the service will close down. No refunds.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

They just opened studios. You won't see AAA games before 2024. Google don't care if it will take 4-5 years, they are investing in Stadia for the long term as part of their Cloud platform.

Incorrect.  If Sony went out of business tomorrow, I can still play PSN digital games.

Plus not to mention that PSN digital games can be downloaded illegally through special ROM sites (although I probably shouldn't say here where to get them).  So these games can be played either on jailbroken hardware or via emulation far into the future.

Once stadia dies, those games are gone for good.
