    New video from YoungYea:


    I agree that it's kind of ridiculous to pay for a game which you can lose access to. Google should at least provide a full game download for people who paid for them so people can play games in case Google will decide to abandon this service like they did with many other services before. Something like GoG where you can download DRM-free games and play them anywhere you want even if GoG will be closed.

    google one of the largest companies on the planet will not fail, they will obviously have the games available at all times if purchased, they are offering their computers for 11.99 a month so that you can do 4k 60 and thats all they are doing.

    Not talking about Google failing, but the company's propensity for abandoning products and services it starts:

    Stadia is also "minor" project for Google ;-) Most of their money come from other sources, they can easily afford to throw a few millions on this project even if they will decide to close it after a couple of years.

    Just look at what happened to YouTube Gaming live stream service. Google invested a lot of money into separate app to watch gaming streams and tried to make it a separate section and even spend money on encouraging some Twitch streamers to switch to their service. They actually had a chance to drive Twitch out of market because Twitch had major issues with quality of streams when YouTube Gaming live stream section has launched. Now look at what happened after - Google never bothered to improve the web interface and their app for YouTube Gaming live streams and instead they abandoned the app and the whole project and while you can do livestreams on YouTube - Twitch is still a preferred platform for most game streamers because it is MUCH more easy to find and follow a favorite live streamer who streams games compared to awful interface of YouTube general webpage and YouTube app which is now used for everything. There is not even a button for gaming live streams on home page of current YouTube app, and when you finally find YouTube Gaming section in YouTube app - it is an awful mess of mix of live streams and old videos. You can't even integrate the games with live streams on YouTube the way you can on Twitch:
    https://blog.twitch.tv/twitch-for-game-developers-b664163bed65
    And you never will because once again, Google has abandoned any kind of support for meaningful game live streaming (other than basic functionality which exists now) unlike Amazon's Twitch which is constantly being in active development with more features and improvements added. This is a perfect example how Google usually treats all of their side projects and there is a high chance that same thing will happen to Stradia.

    With gigabit internet being more common, it should be an option. Maybe not 4k or 240hz, but at least 1080 at 120hz. 1440 at 165 isnt rare either. Regardless, if they can do 4k at 60fps, then the pix bandwidth is more then there for the above modes.

    Google didn't want to compete against twitch.tv, but for Stadia Google might be alone in it's capabilities, only time will tell.

    Giving up now on Stadia is like giving up on your dreams before trying to make them happen.

    Oh, yeah, I see, like Google... ;)

    Hopefully Google won't give up so easily this time.
