    I guess they just found the limit to their information monopoly.

    Stadia will be tombstoned in 3 years (at most)

    Google, moving goalposts since 2019. If you want 4K gaming, get a PC that can play it or get a PS4 Pro instead, don't waste your money on Google's bullshit.

    Why a PS4 Pro? The XBox One X is a much better 4K experience.

    My point still stands, there are better ways to get 4K than having to pay for a piece of crap like Stadia.

    Sure, if you don't mind the graphics fidelity being lower and often capped to lower than 60 FPS. PC also has way more games but Stadia doesn't get that benefit since the library is curated and heavily limited so you'd get a way better library with consoles TBH.
    $500 gets you a lot of months of Stadia though. If you are like me and don't play games that often (on and off for a few weeks at a time when a new great game releases) and you have a fast internet connection Stadia might actually be cheaper. And it's a much smaller up front payment, which might be important to some.
    But honestly, the only way I would ever pay for Stadia is if I could play my existing Steam purchases on it. It's PC based, it just doesn't make sense to me that I can't play my PC games on it, and there's no way I'm paying for them a second time. Geforce Now is way better in that regard.
    In my opinion game streaming isn't a bad idea but this implementation is just going to be a repeat of OnLive. If they had implemented it more like Geforce Now it might actually see some success.
    I do like the idea of using a Chromecast to do the game streaming though. Many people already have one, or there's one built in to their TV, so that saves some money and you don't have to buy another set top box. So they at least got that idea right. But apparently there are issues with overheating on Chromecast Ultra when streaming games, so that should have gone through more testing, and a hardware revision with improved cooling would have been a good idea.

    The fact I can't even download games is a deal breaker. Once servers shut down, and they will, goodbye to your overpriced games.
