Google Stadia full Reveal.

Google Stadia full Reveal.

After all the hype Google finally lifted the lid on their new gaming platform, the Google Stadia. So was the announcement worth the wait, will this new platform really change the face of gaming as Google has claimed? In a word, no. I say no straight out like that because beyond the marketing jargon & Google’s enthusiasm for the Stadia, what we have on our hands here is a streaming service which, just like the others, charges you ($9.99) monthly for access to games of the service’s choice, some good, some not so, and all of the bonus games included with subscription are old. The newer titles meanwhile you’ll need to buy on top of your subscription, & while it’s true that you can stream them to a few Chrome-powered devices after purchasing, with speeds of 35mbps required for 4K why would you bother?

All in all, the Google Stadia has an identity crisis before it’s even been released; who is it made for?

Most casual gamers simply don’t have access to rock solid, uncapped internet connections, meanwhile, hardcore gamers will already have better ways to play all of the games the Stadia has access to.

Perhaps in 10 years people will look back & say, wow that Stadia was ahead of its time, much like they do when looking back on the Dreamcast & it’s online capabilities. Perhaps though they’ll look back & ask what was Google thinking? Like they are now.
