    MS should get all those games for Gamepass immediately and make them all accessible through Stadia's launch and into the new year. That's what I'd do.

    'Hard to review,' for Pete's sake! Just advise the consumer! If it's 'not good' right now, then it's not good period. Whether they fix it 6 months from now, 2 years from now, whenever, who cares!

    There you go, he did it! Good job.

    I watched reviews from more casual people today and they were much more positive. Input lag was barely mentioned in any of them, and when it was they said it was "fine." The dirty secret is this thing is made for casuals to fuck around with for an hour after they put the kids to bed, and those people don't give a shit about quality or consumer rights, only convenience. That's why one of these services will succeed eventually, though probably not this one if they keep fucking up the business model.

    Wow, latency is (and will ever remain) an issue with Streaming games, who'd have thought...

    They want you to buy it for $60 on their "streaming service" too.

    "The Washington Post's Gigabit Ethernet" has as much informational value as the special environments google used to tease Stadia.
    Guess it's too much to ask from these fuckers to dig a bit deeper and check where the servers are and if there are special routes in place (stuff google promised/implied).

    Stadia is completely pointless: If you want a system that is portable, has online games, has a lot of exclusives and upcoming games, just get a damn Switch! Nintendo has made this piece of shit system obsolete with its awesomeness, and I would rather play Mario Maker fanmade stages online than any Stadia game except maybe Red Dead Redemption 2 and Thumper, which are the only good ones on this disaster. This system will be confined to the same shit pile as the CDI, Virtual Boy, Nuon, Jaguar, N Gage and Xbox One.

    I saw the footage of it running of gigabyte internet. I knew this would be bad, but I didn't see it being that bad on a fast connection. Lag looks so bad a turn based game would be unplayable. How the hell did this get out of internal testing?

    I still am curious what kind of hardware the box itself has.

    The free version that runs on Chrome and whatnot is coming next year, supposedly.

    It's a real deal, if you Subscribe to "Stadia Pro" for $10 a month, you even get game discounts!
