Google should just stick to tablets software and phones all this news still will not get people to buy the friggin thing. I'd rather buy a PS5 or a Series X then waste cash on Stadia.

you write "rather" as if the PS5 and the Series X aren't as shitty as Stadia lol.

How would you compare Stadia to the quality of the coming consoles?

RevXM19d ago

Well they arent.
Stadia relies on a solid stable connection and somewhat fast connection.
For many people it isnt feasable and even for people with fiber it falters for some.

There is lag, it wont ever be as responsive as local hardware, it can be playable, but it is anywhere between perceptible to annoyingly slow or unplayable...

And on top of compression artifacts and quality losses... its not even always offering superior technical prowess over the Ps4 or X1 despite supposedly having way superior CPU and way more graphical power.
Akward when One X has the superior version over stadia isnt it?

its a paid subscription service, and you buy access to games for full retail price on top of that. even if the game is many years old.
And you dont have any control and you dont own squat and they can delete games or entire accounts or libraries at a whim that you paid for.

Sure this happens on consoles too sometimes with accounts being removed which is rare but does happen, and games being delisted and wiped entirely from the servers... But you usually dont pay full price on old games and most AA-AAA games are also on disc. Point is while control and ownership is sort of fizzling away on console... its still there and as long as the entire game is on a disc or a harddrive you can play it for as long as the disc lasts and the hardrives spins and you do not choose to delete it, heck you can loan, trade and buy new and used games whenever. if you can buy a complete game on a disc you have it and you can play it for as long as you have the disc in working order. Playstation and Xbox arent going to break into your home and take your disc games, but they can remove games from their end... and Stadia... well it is all on their end. any and all Stadia exclusives can just be wiped from existance at any time, your access can be revoked at any time. you get nothing, they get your money.
When/if they fail, or simply dont want to pay liscences or maintainance and electric bills on the servers... poof gone forever.

If you dont have a disc with the content or cant back up the digital copy you are just screwed and you have nothing.

Sony and MS arent perfect far from it, but stadia is on a whole another level, final form villainous scheme BS.

Take away the Internet and I can still play games on my console. Nor is the quality of my game dependent on my Internet connection. Nor do I lose the ability to trade/give/sell a game I've purchased on disc to someone else.

SoulWarrior19d ago

Lol what's the point? when will google realise the vast majority don't want to game on their crappy platform?

TheRealTedCruz19d ago

It's kind of sad. Splash Damage is a great developer, and have made some fantastic games that simply never saw the audience they deserved. Partnering with Stadia isn't going to change that track record, by any means.

As for Super Massive, Until Dawn was fantastic, but their latest release didn't do well, and I think they're looking for any sort of partnership money at this point.

i enjoyed part 1 of Man of Medan, more then i thought i would.

Looking forward to the next part.

more on topic, Google Stadia sucks and so does google.

gamer780419d ago

does this mean the next man of medan dark pictures release will be stadia only?

BlackTar18719d ago

i dunno but maybe that is why it was delayed?

CaEsAr-19d ago

Good for the 10 people who own Stadia
