Replaced the Verge link with the official site. I didn't realize they had an affiliate link and I was funding those clickbait criminals.

They didn't, it runs in the browser

Imagine streaming 4k video game entertainment in your smartphone browser over Wifi

I like how the controller is the bastard child of a Xbox controller and a switch pro controller :doge

In fairness Microsoft buying Bethesda probably has more to do with this than anything about Sony and the ps5 :thinking

tbh the lineup seems much better than Stadia. Still no interest in streaming games though.

the only scenario i would consider streaming games is in hotels on trips. too bad hotel wifi is universally garbage

Idk I see this as being like their music streaming service that I imagine no one uses, seems more appealing than stadia tho :girlaff

i pay for amazon music unlimited  :fbm

Yeah, MS was probably eyeing that Cloud tech that id Software showed a while ago as well.

I used Amazon Music Unlimited, when they had that 6 months for 10 cents offer.
It didn't have all that much on it, as a lot of music i was interested in, was only on Amazon to buy, but not on the service, and at 9€/month is just laughable.
The service itself was fine i guess, mostly used it at home, so i can't really speak to its convenience.

The #1 problem with Stadia is the business model.
Instead of it being a simple subscription, however pricey, they want you to buy the 60$ games on their service, which is completely antithetical to the idea.
I don't want to "own" a 60$ game on a service that they may kill next week, or at least I may cancel my subscription of.

I love the idea of someone else keeping a high spec gaming pc in working order, and me playing it through a browser. The Google Graveyard, though…
