They intend to have the $9.99 be a bit like GamePass, but they aren't exactly blowing the doors off with 1 "included" game at launch lol.   Which suggests to me a great portion of that $9.99 is meant to pay for the streaming, not a GamePass like service.

I have a Chromecast Ultra so if they offer a free month or two to the collection at some point I'll check it out but Destiny 2 for free (is that the free game?) isn't too appealing..

It's Destiny 2 "The Collection";  which I imagine is at least the first few DLCs.

Where are you getting bombarded with ads from?
Have you ever bought a movie or TV show off of the Play store?

Just wait for the free model...  Ever get a 'free' game off the Play store?  :gurl

There's massive cost differences between streaming a video and rendering games and streaming them.

Perhaps they plan on making up that difference simply because they will make ~$20 or so off of a game sale, but then again people also play games for WAY LONGER than they play a video they buy. 

So it's quite possible they'll make you watch advertisements;  if not to make up costs but to provide a greater value to the paid sub. 

I'm only saying it's a possibility;  unless they specifically said it wouldn't be ad supported you can't expect it not to be.  I imagine the "comes next year" aspect might literally be to make decisions like that, partly based on the actual costs associated with the users of the paid subs. 

You seem to have missed the part where the "paid sub" isn't even a "humble bundle" at launch but "one free game" and higher resolution / surround sound.  They aren't just charging you because of game licenses, they are charging you because of the massive costs of game streaming relative to other web based services.

Its Destiny 2 + what looks like all the expansion packs (including the unreleased one) as the 'free' game at launch, but it also says its going to be regularly adding older games to the service, exactly like PSN / XBL / Humble monthly do. And I don't think its a stretch to assume a chunk of those 'free' games will be indie titles that don't need a GPU, so can be run on pretty much any VM, not one of their gaming specific bad boys.

The $10 monthly is primarily for people who want 4K HDR streams, AFAICS, and people who want 4K streams are already paying a premium for that on regular video steaming services, so I don't think thats exactly a value deal breaker either.

I don't even think they need to 'ad support' F2P titles; most F2P games have moved to a high engagement, regular low cost purchase model, which they'd get a presumably 30% cut on for every lootcrate / skin / exp booster purchased. Its not like 10 years ago when it was 'big payment' purchases targetting the 1-2% 'whale' userbase.

e: I assume its Destiny 2 as their 'big name' because Destiny 2 on Pc is a huge fucking flop and :no1curr so they got a great deal to try and push it

Stadia looks like one of those Google products without focus.

It is subscription based but you still have to buy games seperately so it is not Netflix for games.
The performance is good but it takes up 1TB of data for 65 hours of gameplay. Which seems rather inefficient.
It will work on a variety devices but at first only on Chrome Cast Ultra.
Designed will all this extra power (for next gen) but launches with the same games already available on other platforms.

Let's see what MS brings to the table with XCloud.

Destiny 2 will come with the base game, all previous add-ons, the new Shadowkeep expansion and the annual pass.

also Nintex, "subscription based but you still have to buy games" is called playing online on a console these days. :lol MS even has an XBL+Game Pass subscription which sounds like the same shit but is more expensive (most likely because Game Pass has a lot more games in the catalog).

PS5 and Xbox Too are going to be launching with a mostly "also available on PS4 / X1 / PC / Stadia" lineup outside of any platform owner exclusives too

I think no exclusive just shows google is not really all that serious about this.

Look how much heat Xbox gets for for having lackluster exclusives. Now imagine if for Xbox two they said “we decided we just don’t want to do exclusives at all”? They’d rightly get destroyed for that.

Biggest thing with Google Stadia is that it doesn’t seem to have any particular reason to exist. It’s not clear what need it fills that’s not better filled by the existing consoles.

I can sort of see how there might be a market for low-friction gaming.... like the “i saw a commercial for Red Dead 2, and I don’t really play video games but like westerns and ‘oh I can just click on this YouTube link and play it’”  it But that reality doesn’t exist yet, and it’s not really clear that it ever will. It sort of sounds like the google controller will remain mandatory even after the free version comes out.

at their first reveal i believe they said it'll work with PS4 and X1 controllers. if that's the case, then this thing has a much better chance of becoming a big deal. just being able to plug into a laptop or pair a bluetooth controller to play a game vs a $500 box to play the same games is gonna be appealing to a pretty large audience.

assuming the tech works of course

up against $500 all new boxes from Sony and MS, with the same third party support, and there's no reason to expect stadia games are going to look or perform any worse than those new boxes do

A local box will always out perform a virtual one.

you need to define your terms about 'performance', because any random summer blockbuster I can stream looks better than anything any gaming rig I can ever dream of owning can perform in realtime.

Streaming a game will add latency and additional input lag that you don't get with a local box. It's an exciting prospect and should work great for some games. I'm still skeptical of performance in games where timing is key like in some sports games and multiplayer shooters.

Game streaming is not video streaming.

Good compression relies on a couple of factors;  time and predictability.  That's why a pre-recorded video can get the max compression with the max quality;  an encoder can take it's time, and the encoder knows all of the upcoming frames and can analyse them and see that the sky in the background doesn't change for 10 seconds therefore that 10 seconds of data doesn't need to be updated.

Even for a "live video stream" you still can act on a delay;  you can delay the video for as long as you need to satisfy some reasonable expectation of compression against a reasonable expectation of what is "live."

A game can't do that;  the video encoding needs to be as immediate as possible;  every frame you wait for to calculate compression is a frame delay to the end user.   Every millisecond the compression takes and thus the decompression on the other end takes is a millisecond added to the delay the user experiences.    You'd target a bandwidth goal, and compress only the minimum possible.

People need to generally stop thinking about video streaming in terms of game streaming;  the business is entirely different, the costs are different, the tech is different, etc. 

Your pirated 4k Blu-Ray rips have little to do with what it takes to quickly get the frames of a game from server to client.  Advancements in encoding and compression are part of why game streaming is possible, but it will never be as efficient as a pre-recorded video can be.

What’s the overlap of people that have PS4 and x1 controllers lying around but don’t game on PC, Xbox, or Playstation already?

Certainly there is some market there, but the experience better be awesome.

It's more what will those people get next-gen or after imo. If MS and Sony charge whatever they charge ($500 + 2nd controller + online sub) and Google says "You can play those games with the shit you already have" it'll probably tempt some people, especially if there's cross-save/cross-play and they can still play with their friends.

Exactly, and I can't help but feel there's a decent chunk of people who've felt burnt on how this gen panned out with its mandatory online fees, mandatory downloads of huge amounts of data prior to playing a game even if you own the disk, and 'mid-gen upgrade' shenanigans.

As predominantly a PC gamer, Stadias existence is nothing but upside; at worst I get a reference level hardware spec thats guaranteed to hit 4k 60fps come my next upgrade cycle, because thats the hardware studios target for the stadia builds.

I’m open minded about it. Like I’m sure I’ll check it out to see how it works if I can just do it from my pc... I’m just not expecting too too much.

Unless google really cares about this and really tries to compete it will be a hard sell.

Sony and MS will come out guns blazing to at least timed-exclusive the best games off of stadia and for various reasons it’s probably more expensive to maintain than Steam so they might not have as much pricing flexibility.

Here’s another impression of both that and cloud. Sounds like the stadia version of doom is not exactly the same as the pc or console versions but some kind of port.

From the impressions the tech seemed to mostly work, but graphics were noticeably worse and limited to 1080P and game was very buggy with missing AI and geometry issues.

neither of those are things that it being streaming rather than locally processed would be responsible for, so I'd have to assume the stadia port just isn't as ready as the console ports are yet

Yeah I shouldn't say ports would be "easier";  it's probably just that the Doom team maybe did a Vulkan "port" to mess around with Stadia at some point but hadn't updated that build in a while hence the old shit.

Hoping Stadia w/ Destiny 2 is at PAX West this year.  I imagine by September that can't be testing with only half-baked ports lol.

Eh;  I likely have at least as good of a connection at my house as E3 does.

So unless they are completely faking it with a server on the LAN or something it's not that unrealistic.

And really conventions like that sometimes have shit internet;  they should advertise what ping they are getting though to let people know what to expect vs. their home connection.

from that arse piece:
Quote
Google invited me out to its downtown LA YouTube Gaming creator's space—away from the Internet-congested E3 show floor—to try out the latest build of Stadia. My demo was running locally on a Pixelbook with the Chrome browser, connected to a TV via HDMI, and remotely to data centers more than 300 miles away in San Francisco. The Pixelbook had a wired Internet connection that I was told was running at "about 25 Mbps" (Google wouldn't let me run a speed test to confirm the connection quality).

Some new deets:

- Local co-op of up to four players is supported
- The Stadia controller supports USB HID so can be used as a USB controller for anything that supports it
- They explicitly recognize that while games may be "delisted," a "purchase" is for the life of the Stadia service in general, "barring unforeseen circumstances"
- VR support is TBD

It's a good deal if you have a solid connection to their server.

I'm curious how stuff like UPlay+ will work with the free tier though;  I doubt you'll be able to use it for that.

destiny 2 is not the game to give away. Isn’t it going free to play like two months before this launches?

yeah i think the base game will be free. they are giving the base game + expansions, so that's something i guess.

This is what we need. Use 1TB of data streaming Fez.

I weep for the people who have monthly data caps.

Both tiers seem decent. :idont

The value proposition they are offering seems so obvious and easy to explain - even just by comparison to how you can buy a movie online and only stream it or buy a bluray player and a disk and 'own' it - that the way some media outlets are still talking about 'netflix of games' and 'you cant even buy games unless you subscribe, and you lose your whole library if it lapses!' makes you wonder if they're actively trying to kill it with capital-g-gamers pre-launch because playing a game within seconds of watching a YT review is a pretty fucking terminal scenario for some of the games press.
