So if it’s not for hardcore gamers what is Stadia even going for here?


May 1, 2019
Xbox Game Pass and Uplay+ look infinitely more like the Netflix for games the industry is moving toward, but that isn’t what Stadia is at all, it’s just another platform and storefront, with the main advantage being a lack of dedicated hardware. I don’t think that’s enough, and I have also gone through this entire article without even mentioning obvious challenges, like that we’re assuming all of this is going to work with zero lag and that it won’t blow through all the data caps in place in the US internet system.
