Her resume is basically just Assassins sreed 1/2 and maybe Splinter Cell Blacklist.

Reality check for those of us who don't live in big cities:

I'm currently at my parents' in Lancaster, Pennsylvania
I have 9mb down and 600kbit/up
It's been at those speeds for +5 years
We have one provider available to us and they have no reason to improve their infrastructure ever
Stadia has no market here, sorry

Had to move back home, huh?  Now the crankiness makes sense.

Watch_Dogs was part of her purview too. Two new franchises and a pair of sequels is pretty good actually.

She also has a background as an actual lowly code monkey. She worked at Sony and EA as that before moving up on The Sims Online then over to Ubisoft because they offered her a producer pipeline on non-casual stuff.

Ubisoft were arguably the ones who cynically put her outfront because of her looks to promote Ass Creed. In the infamous photo Patrice is standing back with everyone else. I don't remember her ever trying to take advantage of it publicly, she notably moved off of Assassins Creed when he left in the spat with Ubisoft management and leveraged their need to keep one of them into a new IP oversight role that became Watch_Dogs.

Although it is suspicious she refuses to talk about EA's evil black hole machine they're constructing in downtown Montreal.

Bandwidth isn't even the main issue, latency is - and there's only so much they can do to reduce latency. DF performed their tests at Google, so they probably had in the neighborhood of 3ms, or 6ms round trips. That's fine. I live in Germany, if Stadia uses the datacenter in Frankfurt, I'd be looking at 40ms round trips. If they use the closest big datacenter in the Netherlands, it's 60ms. That's four additional frames (two frames input plus two frames display) at 60fps, on top of everything else: the game's inherent latency, as well as the video encoder and decoder. It's fine for RPGs and "cinematic" games, but garbage for anything testing your reflexes. There's a reason they used AssCreed to demo Stadia, not something like Apex Legends, let alone CS:GO.

Latency was the problem with OnLive. Their solution was "eventually with enough subscribers we'll be able to put datacenters everywhere that matters."

Most of those games are really mediocre though.

Sure they’re polished and high budget... but is anybody really excited for “the next IP from the creators of Warch dogs and Assassins Creed 1?”

Splinter Cell Blacklist 2 I would be excited for.

That said, she really hasn’t shipped a game in 5 years unless you count the campaign for SWBFII which everybody says was bad.

As a pc gamer it really doesn’t do much for me.

But that destruction game could be a neat curiosity if it requires a super computer level pc to run.

That’s the stuff that would sell me, not a laggy controllable video stream with drm on a level that makes every publisher moist.

I don't think she should be entirely blamed for that, EA hired her to create new IPs, then told her staff farm to prop up Visceral's Star Wars, and then shoved the failed BioWare Montreal into her studio while telling them to start from scratch on another Star Wars game. She probably bailed out for this position because of all that.

As for the quality of the games, they sold buttloads, Blacklist failed to meet Ubisoft's expectations. (So did Watch_Dogs 2, which she didn't work on.) :trumps

This is like a corpse before it arrives for the reasons that Sho Nuff laid out. Doesn't some of the country not even have any internet access at all? So this is a viable thing population wise for maybe half the country, and what % of those people are into gaming and would be up for an all streaming all the time machine? Not enough to be a financially viable thing. Since this is Google I guess they can just lose money on it forever. :teehee

I think this has a lot of potential, especially with the Youtube integration. A lot of enthusiast's problems such as input lag and image quality aren't going to be shared buy the general population. I mean movie enthusiasts love the bitrate of blu ray and want Dolby Vision as the standard. No one buying tv's at Walmart or Target to watch stuff on Netflix cares. It just needs to be good enough. 

Caps and speeds are the problems. Internet infrastructure in America is awful outside and even in major cities. That really needs to change and even then it will probably be in your major metropolitan areas.

The Apex Legends nerds already complain about the input latency being 5ms higher than CS:GO, at a whopping 14ms...

That said, the concept probably has a future (for slow paced games at least), and Google could probably pull it off. They have the infrastructure, the money, and a billion people already use their software and services and have accounts. They are in a much better position than Microsoft, let alone Sony. But they're also infamous for coming up with some shit, burning tons of money, getting bored and shitcanning everything.

The strength will be in the YouTube integration. When you watch "Angry Review Cyberpunk 2077" a button pops up: "Play now".

When a guy is streaming a FIFA match you can instantly join. The way that sort of integration is going to work is going to make or break this thing along with the available content(TM).
It is sort of the seamless community that Microsoft tried to built with their cloud gaming and XBLA ideas but never quite got off the ground.

Will it be another Crackdown 3, where the power of the cloud turns out to be very limited or will it actually work as advertised.

I would argue Ms. Raymond should have been hired and the game dev division started two years ago, so they would actually have interesting, ready-to-go exclusive content to show this week as opposed to a Doom sequel, an Ubisoft port and some tech demos. They're launching in 2019. Are we supposed to ignore this until they make real games that actually take advantage of the platform?

Also not mentioned: pricing models. Good luck with that

In some future world where everybody has awesome internet and there are no data caps this product makes sense, because there are probably a fair number of people that would theoretically play one or two games per year but don’t buy a console or whatever.

But... if the market of people that want to lay out the cash for  killer internet AND want to play a video game but also don’t have a way to play a video game seems like a weird overlap.

One thing is that I assume a lot of people will consume this stuff on PC, and input lag on a mouse is way more noticeable. I can’t imaging trying to play an FPS with a quarter second of input lag with a mouse.

Probably can do an ok job hiding it on a controller by messing with lock on and acceleration, but it will be trash with a mouse.

The majority doesn't care about equivalents in other media, most won't care for gaming either. Blurays never over took DVDs, more people do streaming than blurays as well. All super hi fidelity music services flop because no one cares.

You can use all the emoji's you want, but your concerns are enthusiast gamer concerns.

Your average person just wants to play something well enough for convenience.

I gave my nieces my shitty old computer. They were happy enough to be able to play Fornite probably only at meduiem settings and not even 60fps.

My girlfriend brings over her old ass Xbox to play Battlefield 5 with me. She dosen't care or notice that it runs and looks better on the One X. She just likes to play the game.

PS4 and Xbox One S sales still sell well despite the obvious better upgrades.

The Switch is a thing and people love it. The Wii...

Fuck consoles in general have never been the place for 100% the best game experince.

Go to your local Walmart or Target, pay attention to the tvs there. No one buying them really gives a fuck about HDR least not the different standards and whatnot. 4k Blu ray sales and blu ray sales in general are an increasing niche despite still the overall better quality then streaming. People buy roku and amazon streaming sticks because it's simple or to fucking hack them so they can watch shitty quality rips of Aquaman. People watch full movies and tv shows on thier phones on the train.

All video games need to do is become as easy and passable to stream as movies and then you have a problem. It's the same thing that happen to movies and music. Make them easy and good enough ,because in both those situations they are not the top quality, and you have something that will really take off. Internet infrastructure is a problem sure, but not enough to stop this from taking off. And who knows how data caps and internet providers will evolve as this very real streaming economy evolves.

I just don't see the point in being dismissive of a very real thing.

I love buying video games. I love discs. I try to have the best quality myself. I am not the average consumer. Yet, I don't think what I like is going to disappear. But things like google's streaming service and the netflix like gamepass, those are kind of the future. And yes I get that that games are not 1 to 1 like movies, but neither was music.

All I'm saying is I wouldn't downplay this. The Yotube integration itself is extremely smart. Fuck the fact that it will be using Chromecasts which are probably built into the average Vizo or Samsung tv your consumer buys from Walmart means the ground work is already there.

Except the majority of gamers do care. There is a huge market for "hardcore" games.

I'd argue that's not as big as you think.

But obviously I have no evidence.

And that things like price and convenience will make "caring" about those things easier to ease up on.

I think you guys are overvaluing how many people care about things like input lag or image quality.

All this has to do is work well enough.

Input lag makes the game less fun to play, and totally fucks it up when there are any hiccups in the network, which isn't uncommon at all.

Agree on image quality.

Also I think it's gonna not be cheap either;  honestly I think game streaming is a huge catch 22 from a business perspective.   A bold prediction, but I doubt it will be very relevant in a decade (I know most people think the opposite, leave me alone.)

Why are you comparing old consoles that might not be 60 fps 4k to input lag. Input lag is different from not being able to play in 60 fps. Not all games need 60 fps anyways. Shit, for most, 30 is fine. And I'm satisfied playing a non-fighting game in 30 fps. A story game like Mass Effect can do well being played in 50 fps.

What I have mentioned is input lag.

I get lag just using blue tooth on my phone. I'll get a notification on my phone and the notification beep comes up on my car stereo maybe 3 seconds later. That is the nature of wireless set ups as well as streaming.

Comparing image quality to input lag isn't going to work as a comparison. What we are talking about are control responsiveness, which yes, factors into an enjoyable game. I've mentioned nothing about HDR, 4k, or anything of the sort. I'm the sort of gamer that doesn't give a fuck about that shit. Input lag, though.
