Kinect was way more popular than Stadia ever will be.

Legitimately thought they had given up with Stadia.

I wonder how much longer Google are going to bother trying to keep this thing going? Anyone want to start placing bets on a kill date for Stadia?

People will look back at Stadia in a decade and say ‘that was the future of gaming’. Just not from Google.

It's not like we're talking about some independent kickstarter funded project here so it's confusing why Google won't take it more seriously. When they bring out a new phone there are loads of adverts for example.

If only there were some connection business between Youtube and Stadia that could facilitate this.

Video game streaming and video sharing is a big thing, and they own both properties, you'd think this would be in from day 1.

Unless they simply don't want all that evidence of people falling asleep while playing their thrilling library of content.

YouTube integration was sold as one of the big pieces of the Stadia puzzle when it was announced, that along with a whole bunch of other still missing features is one of the biggest blows to this. The whole package as it was originally described actually had some interesting selling points to it, but what we have so far is devoid of anything to make it worth looking at.

Xclouds Beta had it beaten before it really got off the ground tbh.

OnLive and the like proved it conceptually nearly 10 years ago, the fact that a huge organisation like Google has barely been able to evolve that core concept all this time later is just ridiculous.

I've been playing around with both recently and whilst I actually quite like Stadia I can see how being able to carry over my Xbox collection to xCloud is a winner.

It's a shame because I like how Stadia is playable in a web browser on any computer, specifically my laptop which would never run Destiny 2 in a million years.

I have a 100mbps WiFi connection and regularly peak those speeds in downloads. I've found no lag at all playing Stadia on my phone.
