This new streaming idea is a risky thing for me because this product depends on an internet connection. Internet connection is not always reliable. They say that they are serious to make this available for everybody but to fulfill that their customers need a proper internet connection. In addition, what everybody means for them, only the United States or does it include third-world countries were internet speeds does not reach 10 Mbps.
Another issue is that they say it will save money. But that is coming with a cost—the cost of slavery. We are going to be a slave to their service. Another factor to that is that it only has one control. So, to play with friends we cannot do it offline and to play we have to pay. For example, I have a PS4, if my friends come over to my house I can play with them offline because PS4 supports multiple controllers, and I do not have to pay any more if I want to keep playing the game.
If the gaming service is running well, it is a good invention. What is the price range for this Gaming service And is the software stable?
I came in towards the end of the presentation so i do not think it would be fair for me to comment about the content. However, I was able to catch a few minutes before the end and think the presenter did a good job showing that he owned the topic. The few slides I saw from the door looked great and the presenter was very confident in his answers to the questions asked.
Mohammed – Google (Stadia)
You mentioned “No loading time, 5 secs to load game” – i think this all depends on how the cable&internet companies services react if you have the proper “plan” to provide for this gaming. It can also be beneficial to the internet companies to sell a higher quality internet so everyone can be involved in the new “IN THING” its also interesting how PS and XBox controllers can both work.
“Google Introduces Streaming Video Game Service” Stadia – NYT
How does this compare to Nvidia GeForce Now? Do you think Stadia will flop or be the next big thing?
Mohammed – Google Stadia
Not a gamer person, however, this topic mention saving money on gamming which really catch my attention.
First Presentation (Mohammed)
- I have seen this topic around the media and have not looked upon it but after your presentation it has given me more then enough information to learn about google Stadia.
- would you after reading this will you buy the system?
Presentation 1: Many people stream games now, it is very interesting to see what Google is attempting especially being a gamer. It will be interesting to see if competitors like Sony and Microsoft are able to keep up.
Muhommand – Google Stadia – Stadia seems very disruptive to the games industry, I had seen Sony doing something similar not long ago, but Google’s efforts I’m sure will be taken much more seriously than previous projects.
do you think google stadia is the future of gaming and will it be able to compete with the PS4 and Xbox and its consistency?
