Can Google Stadia Compete With Video Game Consoles?
 

 



CNBC
Jan 17, 2020


Streaming services like Google’s Stadia and Microsoft’s Project xCloud are promising to end the era of console games and discs. But with a limited selection of games and slow adoption, these services have challenges to overcome before they can successfully take on gaming giants.

There are gamers who swear by the benefits of playing in front of a keyboard and mouse on a custom-built PC, while others prefer the convenience and ubiquity of consoles like the Xbox and Playstation. Those console brands, in particular, have become powerhouses in the world of at-home gaming.

Microsoft sold 30 million units of the Xbox One console between its release in November 2013 and the end of 2017, according to IHS Markit. Sony sold 73 million PlayStation 4 consoles that same time period.

But there’s a new player in the game: streaming video game platforms. You could play from anywhere, on any device, any time. And you don’t need to worry about your hardware becoming obsolete.

Google’s Stadia, Microsoft’s Project xCloud, and Nvidia’s GeForce Now make it easy to play top-tier games without a console or PC. The subscription-based services stream video games from high-end gaming machines through the cloud.

Stadia should have been a user customized console. I give Google until 2021 before they make a Stadia console or drop out.

Outside of the general rule of: Google product = auto fail. There about 3 for 200 right now when it comes to successful products.

The competition does it better and is more trusted.

The market doesnt need it.

If google would have kept their fiber internet, and bundled it with this could have been a win.

Stadia was basically DOA.

Its still somewhat crazy to me how an insanely massive company/brand like Google could put out such a trash product and have it flop so bad. Like wtf. sh*t makes no sense to me in terms of how bad the product was and how hard it flopped. Damn

anyways.....real talk, if you are interested in Streaming Gaming services, hands down the best option is X Cloud.

nah they aren't gonna make a console because they don't wanna eat the cost of producing and manufacturing hardware, that sh*t is mad expensive and has little to no returns besides, the whole messaging for their platform has been "game where you want and be free from a box" to drop a console now would just muddy that message and that's a no no in marketing 101

what they should have did is released the program as a beta to let people try it out while they slowly acquired software for the official launch.

they need newer games and they need exclusives. they need a Netflix/gamepass style option where games rotate in and out of the service for the 10 a month, they need a free option AND to unlock it too ALL androids so they reach more people

They've been trying to get rid of disc based consoles for over a decade. Streaming isn't going to appeal to everyone. Disc or digital is the only way.

Google has a history of putting out trash services. They also have a history of dropping them with the quickness if they are not immediately successful. I'm anticipating stadia to be no different

And I don't blame you. I own a google pixel 3 (which is an awesome phone) but it took a long time for me to pull the trigger on it. I was eyeing Pixel ever since the og phone came out and was very hesitant to bite for the same reason
