Google just moneyhatted Serious Sam 4 to keep it off consoles, so they could have it exclusive for a year. Yeah, you heard that right. They are starting to pull the same exclusivity shit that EGS has been pulling on Steam. Except they are targeting consoles. This is going to be a really shitty gen if every other 3rd party PC game is locked to the EGS for a year, and every other 3rd party console game is locked to Stadia for a year.

But they don't have it exclusive for a year, thanks to the PC version.

The only game (timed?) exclusive to streaming platforms is "Gylt" as far as I know.

I played through that in my free trial of Stadia... a nice exploring game, but no system/service seller. It ran very well, but that can be expected for slow paced genres like these.

On the other hand I can't understand why Google thought that fast paced games like Mortal Kombat, Thumper or Serious Sam would be good fits for their service.

I should have gone into more detail on that one. They are paying to keep it off consoles for a year, and have it as Stadia/PC only. This is the article that prompted my post. I just didn't explain it fully. http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2020/05/google_stadia_exclusivity_delays_serious_sam_4_on_ps4_until_2021

I'm crossing my fingers that all of them are just shitty GaaS multiplayer only games like Amazon is currently doing. But another question is will Stadia still be alive by the time these game will be ready?

I could see something like that being a big hit in East Asia, where internet speeds are high and data caps are non-existent. 

What country has data caps now?!

Here in England only the utterly worst ISPs which you've never even heard of that cost about £15 a month have data caps (and some high speed mobile phone networks).

Even basic packages provide 25Mbs unlimited use.



Sony want to make money by selling art, Nintendo want to make money by selling fun, Microsoft want to make money.

Well it looks like Stadia is finally starting to publish its own games.




Again, I must ask, why weren't these games available at launch?
