No where, ever, has it said that there'll be Pro deals every month. I get why people wanted to believe that and I guess it's shady marketing (in the way that Google should've anticipated this belief). However I would not expect it.
I also never saw any games labeled as Black Friday, checked each day for curiosity .
Double wrong my friend. Read the AMA and all marketing material. It's all there. And yes, the store had specifically labeled "black friday" deals.
...the amount of Google shills in here is insane.
That's fine, I might have missed the Black Friday labels. I read the AMAs though and never saw anything like that.
I'm not defending Google as much as saying that it's not something I'd expect. Simply from a logical buissiness perspective. Especially at launch with a limited amount of titles. But that's a great way to counter-argument.
I think Stadia marketing department is abit fresh and not connected to the main branch.
So trials and errors will happen 🙂
But yes the black friday / discounts was not handled good and google stadia departement should admit that **bleep** ups happens when things are new 🙂
( but i also know that adding \ removing things from when gone active on webshops are not that easy as it seems)
@Northlight I kept reading but I lol'd at "Google was salty"... I wish I did stop reading like you did. What did he mean? The executives? The community managers? Or all of Google... Like everyone at Google? Lol!
First of all Google isn't even setting the prices, their partner developers are! So were the developers salty? I think the prices are high too! But I don't think Google cares enough to be salty at us crying about the prices, lol. Posts like this OP have made me decide to stop complaining about the prices because I don't want to risk sounding like these guys!
@ChromeDome I'm glad you felt obligated to reply to a 10 year old. Who's salty now?
Your post is the one that made no sense, which is why several people here have called you out or disagreed with you. Maybe you stopped reading your own post as you were writing it.
For the record, I also complained about Google's fake Black Friday sale. But the whole thing where you think Google cares at all, much less got salty, over the comments on this forum is ridiculous. They cared so much that while we were all complaining they didn't even bother to have any of their community staff even monitor or respond to anything. In fact they ignored it all the way through black Friday and Cyber Monday. Then Tuesday Grace suddenly resurfaced and never addressed any of the stuff we posted. They're not salty, they just can't be bothered.
