End of consoles?
Will mainstream and indie developers flock to Stadia?
New economy for gamers, streamers, play for hire, advertisers, etc?
Who else can compete? Amazon, Microsoft, Netflix, FB?

    Too early to tell. It’s not like it is first of kind. Onlive, Gaikai came and went. Parsec, Nvidia, playstation offering is there now. And microsoft xcloud is coming soon.

    Google thinks they only need build it and people will come. There's an arrogance there that makes it difficult for them to consider marketing or content acquisition,/partnerships. Until they figure this out, they're going to struggle in areas like this.

    I did project stream and it played well, but it won't replace pc enthusiast gaming. 60fps cap, no ultrawide support, harder to macro (grey area or black). Takes up a good amount of data too, so it will be limited to who can use it stably.

      data is the big thing. If you can only play at home, console is cheaper.

      The main target is casual gamers, folks that don't own a console.

      I'm not a casual and I don't own a console. What am I? (PC master race, of course)

      I have a 2080 and never found a game using that.

    Money machine or the sophisticated gaming experience? Stadia wants the former. Plus, Stadia is the Google induced demand for Google Cloud.

    latency and problems stemming from ownership bother me too much to use it, a big problem they’ll come across is a HUGE demographic does not have a broadband connection capable of delivering a good result.

    I could see some one-off hits if somebody takes advantage of the clients all being on the same network (truly massive multiplayer is possible) but it will not appeal to the mass market, its simply not possible that it would.

    I think it will be good and Google is getting on it a TV the right time. I tried it when they did the beta and it was quite good

    I just keep wondering if it will work well enough, in regards to the latency problem for streaming and receiving inputs. Really neat initiative though
