I'd purchase it if I didn't have to repurchase the games I all ready own. This is essentially geforce now but it's on integrated platform. Give the ability to link games (and purchase as well and I can guarantee it takes off).

Only six percent of Americans don’t have broadband
You do realize that's twenty fucking million people, right? This also ignores how shit most peoples' speed is even if they have broadband compared to real first world countries.

US internet is terrible. It's kind of a running joke amongst my team (50/50 American/Canadian) that America has 3rd world internet. It's not so much that fast internet isn't available but it seems to be a common thing in the US for neighborhoods to sign exclusive contracts with specific internet providers and the residents are stuck with whatever that ISP offers because all competitors are locked out of that area.
Thqt will come back to bite many companies in the ass when starlink takes off.

starlink would absolutely be terrible something like stadia though. Even 20-40ms of latency for game streaming is going to be a problem.

Great, but give it another year and everything will be abolished. A shutdown so swift and secure that the President of Madagascar would be envious.
They are actually in a good spot currently. The new xbox and PS5 are hard to find and PC always has a pricey barrier to entry. Times like now are great for a business model that does require expensive hardware and gives access to the newest games.

It would definitely be playable. No worse than what most people run into when playing online. It wouldn't be ideal though.

iirc this is what kept my area from getting cable internet till 2003.

Would be a good practice for the government to make illegal. Would really open up the internet market to some competition.
Hahahahaha hahahahahahahaha hahahahahahaha.

Oh man. If only.


(I am agreeing with you 100% but telecom in this country is fucked and the government is their bitches)

:werd: It'd also be great if the shitcocking companies wouldn't bitch about some other company coming in and wanting to improve shit. Both AT&T (I think that's who operates in the area) and Time Warner bitched and moaned and shit their pants when Google started sniffing around here. I still think Google wanting to lay shit down here is the only reason TW basically doubled our speed over night without needing to do much of anything other than tell us to get new modems. AT&T used some bullshit excuse to keep Google off their lines saying they didn't want their customers shit to be impacted with downtime or w/e because Google would be fucking with them. Fuck all ISPs in this country.

Fuck the Stadia.

I'm more interested in hearing what the fuck is happening with Google Glass? I've been wanting to buy one for a while but A) Don't even know if it fucking works outside of the US, and B) Don't know if they've secretly or are planning on shelving the whole fucking thing.

Come on Google, its probably the most epic futuristic wearable that has the potential to be an actual game changer. DO SOMETHING WITH IT! :ugh:
