I canceled my stupid Stadia subscription I never used.

Like it was kinda neat when I was using the GPD Win max which was kinda under powered but with the newer devices that can actually run the games decently the Stadia option becomes kinda worthless.

I've still got my $5 GFN sub till the end of time so its even more worthless to have paid for Stadia.

thisl. when you spend $5000 oin fail handheld pcs it really shows you: This stadia product is a dud. of course for bringing this up on reddit i was targetted with icbms :rolleyes: would think these folks would appreciate a device to hide from their wives. but i guess for saying this ill be blown apart with a warhead.

aboslutely. incredible to think falia users dont open empty boxes and look at the inside ever. the sign of a complete cluster fuckwomble of a product by google.

My point is that VR is literally not listed on any of those job descriptions. There's nothing from Google linking Stadia to VR at all, at least not here.

well its not like reading comprehehension is their strong point. for exmaple bear mace canisters all say not to aim at my face and spray and yet for telling the truth this is what i muse endure day after day.


FAUXTON posted:

yup. they dont know hat the word means, and frankly its hilarious. if i had to guess they would probably say its for "very red" which is what my backside became after i was hoisted up a flag pole and smacked with the end of a crane.


Neddy Seagoon posted:

The core problem is you need a VR device at the end to be streamed to though, there's no getting around that. And for what you're spending to get that VR device... you can just have a VR device that works locally and makes the concept moot.

Streamed gaming works because you can throw it at literally any device with a wi-fi connection, a screen, and whatever inputs will translate to its API (hell you can overlay points on the screen itself to poke and stroke at. It won't be great, but it's been done before). VR's a whole other kettle of fish, especially now we're kinda-sorta seeing a standardized framework with OpenXR get agreed-upon and adopted and a relatively-standardized set of inputs due to Oculus establishing a pretty decent one (two tracked controllers, each with a thumbstick, two buttons, a menu button, grip button and trigger). So to stream VR you need to match that, and you can't really fudge that with a phone and a plastic frame anymore.

Facebook's (almost certainly) eating a loss on the hardware to make money back on software and being Facebook in VR. It still tethers to PC for SteamVR but you need a Facebook account to do anything with it. If you're on a budget and don't care/have a Facebook account, the Quest 2's what you're after. It'll also work wirelessly if your router's decent. Lighthouse hardware's (Vive, Index, etc) is also just more expensive because it's got more involved due to external base station for better tracking and sensors in the devices to calculate their own positions and send that on to your PC.

[office guy gif] Thank you! This. but the morons on the reddit would nt know about any of this and frankly, i dont think they care. theyre more obsessed with their bastardwaffling mole wifes and hiding inside the dry wall of the basement. of course when confronted with FACTS i was of course beaten repeatedly in the nose with a boxing glove full of cement and no one will od anything about it.

Just consider that the S will give you better graphics and latency than you will ever see on Stadia, but I am sure the dadiads will just come out with a "lens of truth" style blog comparing Stadia to the 3rd Xbox.

Stadia being playable on everything would be a win for Stadia, but a loss for humanity

It fronted on this notion that it was a free and open platform that would be super handy and practical, with YouTube integration. I'm sure the idea that it was ever going to be a 'cheaper' option was just pro-Google press hype looking back. They have suites of free products, but they're compromised by ads and farming your info. Anything that's cheap or free about Stadia is just more of that in some capacity

If you feel compelled to play suck-rear end cloud-based games, Stadia being an app on consoles makes total sense, particularly with Switch which does not have the capacity to play these games natively. You have the controllers/Joy-Con on your system already, you don't need to buy Google's

I just don't want anything to do with their ecosystem of games for non-Stadia reasons. And I don't think cloud is There yet

GeForce now is good enough for cloud. If I want to chill and play a casual game upstairs instead of the nerd den it works. If I wanna crush some skulls on a laptop it works well enough. I probably wouldn't touch it if it made me rebuy my games. This is where stadia fails mediocre platform and performance at higher than market prices (or you can join the $10/month club and get discounts similar to buying on the open market).

Stadia the financial advisor of gaming. Pay fees to do what others can for free regardless of performance.

But I already have Gamepass on my Xbox, why the gently caress would I waste my time with an inferior experience when I can just download and play the games that Stadia offers in better resolution, locally.

Like a normal person who owns a console.

This isn't going to help Stadia at all. Just lol.

If you already have a library on Stadia for whatever reason, having that library accessible on as many devices, especially devices with controllers, would help. A bit like already having a library of iTunes movies, it would be convenient to have them playable on non-Apple devices. I hate iTunes, am frustrated that I bought movies on it, but, having only 9 reasons to hate iTunes instead of 10 helps iTunes

Cloud-based gaming would be better across the board if it were flexible. Xbox Cloud should also be on every console for the same reason

Its not clear from your post if youre wishing that iTunes option existed or if you already know about it. But just in case you dont, you can link your Apple account to Movies Anywhere and then your movies will show up in your library on other linked accounts (Amazon, Play Store, etc.). I use this pretty often, except the opposite way. I watch stuff from my Amazon library through iTunes or Apple TV because their stream quality is usually better than Amazons.

I didn't think of Movies Anywhere when I was writing the post but ya, that's a good example of consumer-friendliness in streaming
