as CEO Pichai continues cost-cutting efforts.

I got Cyberpunk on there. I was able to back up all my save games.
I figured it wasn't worth buying anything else on it because you never know what the future holds.
Also I should have saw the writing on the wall when the shutdown all internal game studios last year.
Too bad, I was starting to have a nice collection with the $10 subscription model.
You could stream high end games on laptops, cellphones tablets, chromecasts.
Oh well we had fun! (mainly me and Cyberpunk)


Google said it will be refunding all Stadia hardware purchases made through the Google Store and all game and add-on content purchases at the Stadia store. The company said it expects to complete the majority of refunds by mid-January. Players will continue to have access to their games library and can play through Jan. 18.

Maybe I'll get a refund, I'll hold my breath!!!

Oh no…

You’d have thought after the success of OnLive this was going to be pure gold.

I'm surprised it took as long as it did.

Shame, because the concept itself was really solid.

People can try to hype up video game streaming all they want, but the realities of physics and long distance communication will always be there.

Cloud gaming cant catch a break. OnLive was an amazing system, but it was way too early.
Stadia was just a shitty launch. I know many casual gamers that really liked Stadia.

There's allegedly a project to 'reopen' the Ouya store, but for free. I can't remember where I saw it, maybe MVGs channel?

edit: Yep, he did a video of it recently:

Could be consumer protection laws mandating it, especially if the EU is involved, I believe they have stronger laws against planned obsolescence (even if this wasn't technically planned). Pure speculation on my part though.
