We waited 2 months since the last Stadia official communication, and finally they announced 4 new games ! Is this a joke ? Please someone from Stadia tell me this is only a funny joke :).
You promised 4k triple A games, and now that we need something new to try out you released "Tetris, PacMan and Asteroid" (satirical)
And the wrost thing is that I saw a lot of users replied to the announce with "Oh Thank", "Great", "Fantastic !".
Well, this is going to be another big, huge, giant Google disaster...
I'm waiting replies that state I'm wrong, that they are great games... That Serious sam is a great game... Please, if you like to play prehistoric game or indie game there is nothing bad with it, but this is not what Stadia promised ^_^
You know that it might take time for the Triple A developers to put their game to a new platform? Looking at Elder Scrolls Online for example (which I am still waiting for) and which was announcement in the Google Store as a game to come on Stadia, there was no promise at all when exactly this game would be available. Which is of course a clever marketing strategy to just tell everyone that triple A games will be on Stadia, but no expectation when they would come.
But yeah, the Stadia developers mentioned already that they work close together with the game-developers, so I hope that 2020 will be a great year for Stadia with a lot of games (as announced in the Community Blog), they mentioned already more than 120 games, so I guess there will be some triple A games coming as well.
But at least we're getting some games on Stadia, which is definetely a nice thing! And if you don't have patience, well, then let's play Xbox, PS4 and PC in the meantime. 😃
I guess that it is not possible to please everyone at this point in time with Stadia.
I would suggest that you let your subscription lapse and come revisit Stadia later on and see if there are titles available then that are more to your liking.
Sorry mates, replying with excuses is not really a good strategy 😄 If I plan a product launch, I plan a go-to-market strategy a list of partners that supports me for real. Hope to see something different in 2020.
@Mad_Dog_Bravo I'll for sure not renew Stadia PRO, and thousands of users with me too...
This want to be a provocative post, to suggest Stadia to change strategy and fast... Every decent product manager should understand that letting people leave Stadia is not a good strategy, and I'm really convinced that unfortunatly Stadia is slowly dieing...
Everyone that is leaving now probably will not come back on Stadia. Moreover, if a lot of people leave Stadia, they will have not enough fund to develop Stadia features.
I'm just disappointed that a so great product risk to be another one in the google's product cemetery, that counts a lot of headstones.
If i would gain 1€ for every one of that "sTaDIa is DeaD or soOn will beE, (because its not living up to MY OWN expectations"), i would need a bigger pocket thats for sure.
Facts: The platform will not go anywhere soon, and thats a good thing, coz competition is always good. Everybody who's working in the marketing, knows simple things like this. A monopole position is never good coz they can dictate the market and the customer. PS4 customer for example are needing the xbox and switch competition. Just like Stadia needs GFN, Amazon and Shadow and vice versa, to compete with.
And im writing this, because your comment smells like the X'st try to moke this platform here, although you never or barely used this platform at all. So i can just suggest you to use something else like GFN or Shadow which is more in your interest. But don't feel good about a dying competitor platform (although its not true) because its never a good sign for your overall prefered platform. If GFN gains the absolute monopole for cloud gaming for instance, than you say goodbye to these 5 bucks per month, and hello to the old 25 bucks per 20 hour playtime plan, which they might introduce in 2021 if theres no competition anymore.
And to the games. What was your expetations? That triple A publishers are releasing exclusive games to stadia or even timed exclusive? I mean what are you smoking, for real? I need that stuff to. 🙏
@ChronosP you reply is awesome 🙂
I'm a Stadia user since November, your inscription date is 14 January... I bought 3 games on Stadia and I played almost every PRO game that was released... I used Stadia and a lot, probably more than you ^_^ (it's not a competition anyway).
Probably you are just waiting something new for less time than me...
I don't expect any miracle and I do not expect any monopole. I expect that if you spam in every event and announcement that this platform is better that others because you'll release triple A games in 4K within Stadia, you focus to do that. This focus is what I'm not seeing right now! And I don't see this focus because no-one is talking about dates, efforts, demo new titles, nothing... Nothing new from Stadia since 2 months and the only news is they are releasing 4 old games...
This is the FACT, I don't know GFN, X-Cloud or PS(don't remember even the name) and I don't really care about them, because I'm talking about Stadia and the FACT is that the introduction of new valuable game is proceeding too slowly.
The FACT is that the population of Destiny 2 on Stadia is drastically reducing months by months (search it on Google) and this is a signal that users are slowly decreasing on Stadia.
That are FACTS all the rest I don't care 🙂
Honestly Nothing in particular, but I'd like somehting like:
Games of the past year and hopefully new triple A games realesed on the same date of others console version.
This is what I hope.
Well these games are not what we most expect. But they give variety to the catalog ... surely many parents bought Stadia for the little ones in the house and these games are very good for them.
Entering the gaming world is difficult, Microsoft has been in the market for 20 years and if it were not for unlimited capital injection it would hardly exist if they were based on profits, Xbox without the game pass nobody would play it.
He has the example of the Epic Games Store, which is investing everything they earn in Fortnite to create their digital store, even paying one-year exclusives such as Shenmue 3, RDR2, Metro Exodus and giving away 2 monthly games still without profit.
This shows that the injection of unlimited capital and the variety of offer is not the key to success, Google is not known exactly for continuing to invest if something does not work, so I understand the terror of closing Stadia. Surely Google is taking steps in another direction such as creating infrastructure in countries where Stadia is not available.
I certainly do not lie ... the captain of this ship has fallen asleep and has slept for a long time ... it probably has qualities in other economic fields ... but NOT in video games. Without detracting from the actor's job of commercials ... you can see how Google thinks that video game players are some kind of psycho-tropical consumers. Something like ... don't consume ayahuasca ... play Stadia.
Well my experience with Assassins Creed Odissey in Stadia is superior to my i9 9900k, 2080ti RTX, 32GB Ram Vengeance 3200mhz, 2k monitor 100hz 34 " So I will follow and wait for new games in Stadia.
I mean the experience in Rage 2 is not.
I am a person who on PC if at some time I see the number 59 FPS on my screen I will uninstall the game and never again buy a product from that editor / developer so I have so many games, the same happens if I get freezes, a single freeze and that Editor is dead to me.
I'm here for 4k 60 FPS, something impossible on PC
