So who is the target audience that doesn't already have a console? I just don't get this release at all.
Do they think casuals will eat this up?
I will say if Google had opted to give us access to their network here in Portland Metro I might have been interested in the base version but I'm stuck with shitty DSL from Frontier to avoid paying 3 times as much with Comcast due to their caps.
When you take into account the kind of uncapped high speed internet needed for this, combined with the casual masses probably struggling to understand what Stadia even is, that market analyst company that predicted that streaming will only take up about 2% of the industry by 2023, is strating to sound much more believable.
i just cant imagine any gamer , that would say :
Ok i love games and i play them a lot , and now i need Stadia ...
because i dont see reasons . maybe someone know reasons , like any reason ?
if you like games you allready playing them on some platform. means you can do streaming there as well if you need.
Lol nope. Already have a PS4 and Xbone. Seems redundant and for people who don't really like video games. Most of these games exist on either console and wouldn't be reliant on a stable connection to play.
What kills it for me is that they're essentially doing that "We're adding free games!" thing long after they're worth it, like all the other services out there right now
There's not really a point for me to grab this because it's not going to get console exclusives, and if I can just get the games and stream it myself without paying another provider thaaann....why not do that??
P.S. Anyone looking to stream PC games to other devices, feel free to hit me up
