    Stadia_03_19_19.jpg

    Google Stadia is going through some major changes, lately, after the company announced that they'd be shutting down all its first-party internal development teams. Google's game streaming service can add Stadia's vice president and head of product to the list of people no longer working there, too, following a report from The Information, revealing that John Justice has left Google. This isn't the first time Stadia has lost their VP, either, as Jade Raymond, who served as their previous vice president, left in order to form indie studio Haven. Prior to this, Justice was actively involved in the Stadia project, frequently doing interviews and discussing future plans for the platform, and as recently as December 2020 stated that Stadia would try to better handle feature announcements and claims, after controversy regarding Stadia not reaching its advertised 4k60fps performance.

    No one's surprised but I hope that some other company steps up to compete with xcloud. From where I'm standing, microsoft is dominating. Without competition, cloud streaming will die before it even begins

    Should anyone be surprised? Stadia was dead as so as it was born, no one wanted nor anyone wanted it to succeed. All of this is just it's very slow death. Maybe by 2025 we can finally host a funeral.

    Does this mean that Alien John is cancelled?

    Actually, xcloud while having a great library, does not have the best performance compared to Geforce Now and Stadia. On top of that, xcloud would be the least advertised of the bunch. Gamepass however, has been one of the best services. Funny enough, Stadia has the most robust system but its poor library and negative reception is killing it.

    Did not want stadia to succeed- just another way game ownership and preservation goes out the toilet . I get great satisfaction that they have been doing so terribly.

    So if only they didn't want us to rebuy every game at full price and just gave us access to a virtual desktop like geforce now they would have done better?

    From a company who controlled most of the net, to the self destruct monstrosity they are now.

    They're lagging more beyond the competition at each move, not just with Stadia either. Shambles of a company

    Google obviously has no idea how to run a gaming company.

    lol, I dont understand what they thought would happen. Their business model alone is a huge failure. I also have to say streaming still sucks, its convenient on paper but it looks worse than a ps3 game and has added input lag that is enough to drive me nuts. I cant see why anyone wouldnt just spend a few hundred bucks on a console for a much better library and experience, if you can afford the internet connection needed for streaming then what are you doing with stadia instead of a ps4?

    Here is the issue.....

    Remote play / Xcloud there is ZERO reason to own this if you have a PlayStation or Xbox. Look at Facebook and Instagram you may have so many clones but once again it's hard to compete

    Also a streaming service where you still have to buy each game at full price has no chance in hell, in other media streaming is more appealing because of the amount of content you have access to.. that is the selling point of it. People will deal with lower quality for quantity, but they didnt sub to Netflix to avoid buying a bluray player.

    That's what happened to the music industry to combat against the piracy they just made it affordable. Nowadays who is really pirating music ?

    xcloud has a pretty terrible library for the quality the service offers
    sub 1080p, 30fps, massive amounts of latency, super long load times. it's like they're running the games on modified base xbox ones and then streaming them over
    and i've got super fast internet so that doesn't really help
