Project xCloud Hands-on Suggests It Will Disappoint a Crucial Kind of Gamer - Inverse

Though the service still has a lot to prove, its E3 2019 demos were reassuring. That Stadia was able to announce a price, game library, and release date before xCloud — despite having little-to-no industry experience, particularly when compared with legendary Xbox — created the perception that something was awry. That doesn’t appear to be the case. But xCloud presently lacks in a key dimension where Stadia seems determined to excel. That should have Microsoft worried.

The story is too old to be commented.

In other words people are hyped on Google's words. They didn't have anything playable and has a launch date of of November 2019.... I'd be worried, at least we saw something that was tangible and playable by MS.

As for the library we already know we will have games from the original Xbox to what's coming out on the Scarlett.

I agree. I don't think it will be wildly successful as a whole, but I think MS will crush Stadia because Xbox already has the games, community, and ecosystem to make the transition. I bet in the end all the streaming solutions will suck *about* the same in terms of lag/playability...

This. IMHO you are right on. I think MS has the advantage mainly because they offer both a traditional solution and streaming. I also think that streaming will be considered "viable" by those with great Internet, but I also think that many who believe this is going to be a carefree and flawless glimpse into the future are in for a disappointment. Of course that is just my opinion. I'm ready to see these things in the wild and get some opinions from the Internet.
