    yeah you just have to be positive in this very negative world

    saturnotaku It really is 10 tf but does it utilize this....short answer no not yet....stadia will no doubt be great in a few years time but they will have to make some major tweaks. buying a 90 dollar game that works with stadia only will have to change or they will simply put lose money

    Here's the issue with that though: knowing that it's not good now (so ignoring the blissfully ignorant), how much money are you going to spend on the platform during those "flawed" years? Was there a better use of said money you could think of?

    Stadia could always change their model, as could GFN - as they already have - and GFN hasn't made any progress in many years - they only released due to Stadia coming out along with other interested Cloud providers.

    Although I agree that using existing PC games providers - using games we already own and keeping those as our purchasing nexus is easiest for us, it's not a profitable model to support an expanding "costly" infrastructure service.

    There will likely be a number of changes over the next few years as each interested party - game developers, distributors / platforms / cloud companies / GPU makers(?!?) get their piece of the pie.

    Nvidia can't start making $100m investments in services that don't return a profit, at least not indefinitely.

    As they each learn how to monetize, and each fight to gain content - and lose it - the tote board can change dramatically quickly, as it just has with with Nvidia losing Activision / Blizzard.

    Losing many of their most played good games by losing Activision / Blizzard lost a lot of content that people were relying on - check the GFN forums, and that can kill an otherwise good service quickly.

    It's not over for quite a while. I have no vested interest, but I am going to spend fresh new time on the newest technology offerings over the services that have been out for years.

    Any one or all of them can persist if they find their niche and a way to fund it long term.

    Even if it's not native 4k - upscaled and native 4k will look better than 1080p.

    As Stadia brings on more developers - the developers will learn how to optimize for 4k native more and more, and as Stadia continues to build out it's infrastructure and improve the technology the quality of image and streaming should continue to get better and better.

    I think I'd rather have real 4K if I'm being told that I'm getting 4K. Not only due to the false advertising, but also because native 4K looks a lot better than just duplicating pixels from 1080p to fill the space.

    Scaling of various kinds has been true for the Console "4k" for years already.

    RTX DLSS is doing the same thing, "it just works", like it or lump it. ;)

    There's always an uninformed smartass in every group. Right guys? You know who you are. :D

    How does that commenter know the unreleased games have upscaled 4k? They are just as likely to be native 4k as upscaled; wait for release before complaining.
