    LOL. No idea.. You are only one here I guess. I won't buy it because it is only for streaming game. I got a feeling that it will be failed and 3rd party might supporting it for awhile then abandon it. Yeah. Streaming sucks, to be honest!

    The thing is, The Stadia isn't a bad idea - The problem is Google has pulled the trigger too early...again. There just isn't the infrastructure in most countries to accommodate the bandwidth the platform requires. I mean look at the UK ( and US also has the same issue) there are still places that struggle to get ADSL via a standard copper line let alone a fiber connection. I have the feeling they have pinned their product on a 5g dream that 5g is going to come and solve all of their problems, but I think by the time that it has become a standard the Stadia will be long gone and just a memory of a console that couldn't quite do what it promised.

    Maybe if Google actually delivered on the various promises at launch, and didn't lock it behind Google Pixel phones, this wouldn't be bad.

    They wanted to be first at any cost, I think they will only break-even in like 10 years from now.

    Exactly I cant even get 4g in parts of Glasgow never mind going to the Highlands and Islands. Sure my Virgin media home broadband is pretty damb quick but as i am sure you know all to well it bloody breaks nearly every second day.

    As far a streaming games service they aren't even second, countless services have come and gone promising the future of gaming, whole libraries of games at our fingertips without the need for expensive and powerful pc's and consoles. Will this happen one day? Sure it there will come a day where you can play games on a netflix like service but now is not the time. It's Google being Google. Give it a couple of years and the Stadia will fade into obscurity and join the 3DO, Game.Com and Gizmondo.

    I got the invite code on launch and my controllers a couple days later. It's been a little over 2 weeks now and I haven't experienced any issues with Stadia on PC, mobile, or TV via Chromecast Ultra. It's dead simple, just works, and if you have a 4K TV it looks great. I haven't experienced any lagging or any other issues but I am also using it on a 1Gbit connection with Ethernet on the TV and PC. Way better than all the other local LAN streaming solutions I tried in the past.

    Streaming service outcry is overblown. I have played a lot on my shadow with imperceptible latency or quality loss even in modrately competitive situation.

    Stadia has some aweful monetization tho.
