I don't really care for the service but I do care for the push for Vulkan support. Now we have three platforms pushing Vulkan. Nintendo, Sony and Google.

i really can't wrap my head around where they think the market is going to come from. Some weird new hybrid market between the mobile & console segment? I mean, MS including it as an extra service, on top of the incoming 4K 60FPS box makes sense, but this... I still can't wrap my head around it. Specially now that APPLE is rolling a similar system out as well. I just keep thinking back to how it feels to stream games in to my SHIELD box. Yes yes, google will supposedly have awesome DCs everywhere to blah blah.

still garbage until we're all running fiber lines. Not to mention complete revocation of ownership, high chance of zero mod support ever, & the already known fact of MP being a total crap shoot... This, in the current world, only makes sense as the cheepest possible way to get people gaming(on the end user side), without selling them a $500+ console or PC.( and of course, GET TO MORE DATAS!)

No matter the quality of server side, American ISP, even in the major cities, is still garbage. If I can't maintain a good enough signal to play an MP game now, how's it gonna be with this?

Add me on Steam, same name

PS4 and Switch had Vulkan support for a while, but hardly meant anything.

They are already compressed. Even OTA.

It seems you can wrap your head around it.

And FYI - Now is the perfect time to do this on a small scale where few connections can handle the data. It allows you to test and scale the technology requirements as demand becomes possible, avoiding the situation where you have a service that you planned on 1 million people using being used by 50 million people.

And another FYI - 100mb down is plenty for 4k streaming, and just about every metro in America has that or faster - just because you don't want to pay for it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

I agree.

Look how Microsoft proposed cloud services with the Xbox One back in 2014. Of course, the comparison is Apples to Oranges. However, it shows how the industry is moving. Online is becoming more acceptable. Now look at the recent Xbox One Digital only console. Reception is quite a bit different... ahahha

It will happen. The infrastructure is there *not for all*, and the costs are coming down. Give it another five years and I expect it to be the new standard for delivering video game content. This shouldnt come as surprise to anyone. Article from last year -> http://fortune.com/2018/08/26/video-games-streaming/

What caught me off guard is that Google was showing off games like Assassins Creed Odyssey, streaming from the browser. I expected a lower entry point to be honest (mobile games).

just tried to help a friend configure a physical Steam Link box, n it reminded me of this.

How the hell can they ever expect to deliver quality service when even in-home streaming devices struggle on internal gigabit networks?

Funny enough, steamlink works better without the physical device

-- also the whole point of stadia is no in-home hardware, beyond a supported tele device.

Add me on Steam, same name

There have already been beta testers for Stadia that have had as low as 40 Mbps that have said the service works surprisingly well at those speeds (as per The Giant Bombcast). I haven't had that low a bandwidth for like 10 years so I am sure the majority of people looking at this service as an alternative will be fine.

People are totally missing the boat on this service as well. Google is about to corner the Linux gaming market. Chrome on Linux = $$$. People that long to switch to Linux but don't want to give up their precious games now have an alternative. This is what Steam should have done a long time ago, now Google is going to swoop in and not let their talons go for anyone. Gabe, you don goofed up.

Yeah Valve's going to be kicking themselves about the dozens of customers who will flock to Stadia

What an incredibly bad take, yikes.

Probably the worst take I've seen regarding Stadia. Pat yourself on the back it's some sort of accomplishment
