Ubisoft executive Alain Corre said the publisher believes Google Stadia will usher in a new generation of games thanks to the hardware capabilities of its data servers, allowing creators to use more NPCs and better AI in their games.
Can't wait to try the Stadia
Don't forget the lube and something to bite down on.
Im dead XD

Stadia will be the real next gen. Mark my words
"More to the point, I was missing shots, and it was initially difficult to time melee hits against enemies. It's not that the input lag makes Doom unplayable, but it makes it harder, and it makes you worse at the game. It's the kind of thing that would make you reboot your console and check your TV settings." https://www.gameinformer.co... And that was in a controlled environment.
People who are excited for this just haven't tried streaming. And it's not like playing on a laggy TV or something because with a TV the lag is fairly constant. If your playing a rhythm game on a laggy TV your brain can easily compensate and just press the button early. With streaming the lag is constantly changing so just pressing the button early isn't going to be enough, your brain can't adapt to that scenario. You got people buying ultra low latency monitors and buying gaming mice and fancy controllers to improve their gaming experience and streaming goes hard in the opposite direction. Streaming has been done in the past and it has never really caught on, I don't think this will be the time. It may seem big because they are buying so much advertising, but On-Live when it was new was pretty much the same and we know how that turned out.
Imagine being a Stadia fanboy. Must be really poor not to be able to afford hardware for gaming. Enjoy the input lag and streamed video
No thanks, hopefully the whole streaming thing crashes and burns.
It won't. You should come to terms with that. If it doesn't work out now, it will later. As long as internet capabilities keep improving, streaming will be a thing.
You put way too much faith in the improvement of the internet. Also streaming services like Netflix are in financial trouble and Disney's streaming service hasn't even released yet and they have already cancelled over dozen shows and its not because there is a problem with the internet, its because people are losing interest. I predict that game streaming will go the same route because so much more can go wrong with streaming a game than with simply streaming a tv show.
Until they realise it's not turning a profit so they scrap it and you lose all your games...
@Inzo "Also streaming services like Netflix are in financial trouble " Because the other big players(hbo,Hulu,Disney,Amazon ,apple) have seen that Netflix is sitting on a goldmine and want a piece of the action. "its because people are losing interest." Do you have an article or something that suggests this cause I'm finding nothing?
Ubisoft doesn't even know how to use dedicated hardware properly, how bad will their streaming game be?
Ubisoft, googles money must taste very good right now hmmmmm hmmm
People need to stop being toxic asf. If people like Stadia. Let them. Everyone is a gamer at the end of the day. I have all 3 consoles and I'm still buying stadia.
People need to stop using toxic is what they need to do. It's been worn out. We felt threatened by Microsoft introducing paying for online. Now we all have to pay if we want to play online. We felt threatened about micro transactions because content didn't fit on DVD of 360 but would have fit on a Blu-ray if Microsoft had waited. Now, micro transactions are everywhere and ridiculous that used to be items you unlocked through just playing the game. We felt threatened by DRM of Xbox one in 2013 and what it would have done to game ownership. And now, we feel threatened by streaming services and having to pay for games you'll never own and can't download. Games removed because of a license expiring and it's gone forever because there's no physical copy. And if there's no internet, you can't play at all. Some of us aren't gullible and stupid to jump into schemes that take your control away and ownership away but they still want to be paid full price for profits while you end up with nothing of physical substance.
Stadia is a game streaming service and guess who already has that? I'll give you a hint, it isn't Microsoft. Now if you really want to put your money where your anger is it should be supporting the PC platform. A platform that actually offers consumers more choices and doesn't prioritize their own services instead. UPlay Plus, Origin Premiere, Stadia and so on. You also blame Microsoft for a lot of issues and talk about Stadia and the lack of ownership, so whose to blame for Driveclub ending?
Dont bother shadow. If people dont have the 2 brain cells required to understand what an unequivocally bad idea game streaming is for the gamer at this point in time, a well articulated argument laying out the many many cons and irreparable damage it would cause to our beloved hobby isn't going to work. I do find it interesting, however, that most Sony fans seem to recognize game streaming for what it is but ms fans are ready to bend over and smile the moment it arives.
@CaptainObvious878 "I do find it interesting, however, that most Sony fans seem to recognize game streaming for what it is but ms fans are ready to bend over and smile the moment it arrives." So much this, those MS guys just buy into anything... Then keep defending things well after they have been shown to have negative impact.
That's your opinion. Can't speak for everyone. Same thing goes for steam. It shuts down. There goes your games. Since you have to log in to your account to access it. There's pros and cons. For me Stadia is perfect for me. No limitations in terms of game development. No installs, updates, or patches and shit. Sign in. Click and play. Simple as that. One system isnt for everyone. To each is own. N the community is filled with people with negative mindsets instead of being open minded and open to change. Do micros suck, yea. Streaming has become the norm. Easy access and use. Simple as that
Not a generation I will be a part of. Call me old fashioned but I prefer owning my games and being able to play them offline.
People keep sayinh bend over and accept it, but if that sad day does ever come ill become a retro gamer exclusively.
You can always count on nonsense from Ubisoft. They can make quality games, but their E3 was not that good. Ubisoft still showed more gameplay than MS though.
Hard pass. Not paying full price for a game that I will lose access to when Google gives up on yet another project.
Its the worst streaming service yet, but sure...
A new generation of corporate control over your purchases you mean.
Google is really exposing how their information monopoly works here.
Lol so they've found a new way to monetize then...
No,... no it won't
Although I think Ubisoft is in the middle ground of stuff, this here got me VERY worried. Advocating pro-Stadia only means this: take ownership off users. No decision on offline, mods, anything - everything being on the service's hands. So yeah, although I like Ubisoft they got -100 points only for this one statement.
