So you pay for a controller, then pay a monthly subscription for the service, then pay full price for a game that's streamed to you,
so if the service ever ends, you will be left with a useless controller that can't play any of the games you bought?

You are not required to pay for the monthly subscription.

It is the same as any digitally bought games.

If you're planning on playing on a 720p or 1080p screen, Stadia will eat up a lot less data. Playing on a 720p screen will use around 4.5GB per hour, while a 1080p screen will use 9.0GB per hour. So 30 hours of 720p gaming will use 135GB of data, while 1080p will use 270GB.

:hs:

Can play when traveling
no install times
Quick to change tvs


I have plenty of games I can play when traveling now. The experience of playing games designed for a big TV or monitor with full mouse/keyboard or gamepad controls is going to be awful on a mobile device.

Install times happen once, then you're done. And then the game is run locally and you don't have to worry about your internet connection being stable in order to play.

How often do you switch the TV that you're playing a game on?

You are if you actually want to best quality of resolution and frame rates, which is a BIG part of their whole selling point (4k 60fps with no local hardware).

not really i can play my digital downloads even when there's no internet connection - the game are on my PS4

How many do you own digitally and how many do you have installed?

If there was ever a harddrive issue and they took down the servers, would you still be able to get them?

Cool I don’t. And I didn’t say anything about big tv on mobile here we are again with you fucking projecting because you don’t like being wrong.
