All reviews say it works pretty well so

Get fucked
wut? half the reviews that I saw said that unless you were located in a major metropolitan area there were massive issues with lag and graphic fidelity, even those in the major areas saw a noticeable decrease in quality from their console or PC.

Every review I saw said if you have decent internet it works fine. Some input delay but that was about it

so that's every game that relies upon reaction speed basically out the window

I mean I love turn based content as much as the next guy but that sounds like shaky ground to base your new console on.

I can already tell you part of this is bullshit as he says that he couldnt use the google stadia app to set it up because google requires you to have their pixel phone, which they do not. I have already installed it and set it up on my phone
did he say if he was testing a reviewer sample or a production model. I wouldn't put it past google to require reviewer samples to use pixels and then fix that for GA.

No this was for presetup before they even got the code.

Also the codes for signup were sent out last night for people that ordered the founders edition and had it shipped in the first wave

So basically his whole this is crap and google lied review is based off of innacurate claims and was done before he even had his Stadia code

Nope. It’s not. It’s every so often you miss. It’s also day one of a new tech.

I can see that getting really fucking annoying.

I am playing Samurai Showdown right now and am not really experiencing input lag. It feels a little heavier but that could also be the game and I am not quite familiar with it

But it's totally worth the trade-off of poorer performance for the massive benefit of not actually ever owning anything you buy and having to be connected to the internet constantly to play anything...oh, wait.

Honestly now that I have got the product, gone through the setup, and jumped right into a game, I really dont understand this review
Maybe he will post an update? He is usually pretty level headed which is why I was surprised he bashed the product if it wasn't that bad(in contrast to your experience).

Maybe a timing issue?
