Netizens are mad after Google revealed some features of Google Stadia, and it seems like the app may not be promising enough for the users. Some are even thinking about canceling their subscriptions.
Is Google Stadia a massive flop?
Google Stadia is speculated to take off on November 19, 2019. But the gaming console doesn’t have the necessary features, and it could turn out to be a failure for Google. It is a mess, and publishers have started worrying about its future.
Users are highly skeptical of Google Stadia and wondering how it will run on this generation’s internet speed. Recently, Kine developer Gwen Frey said on GamesIndustry.biz that developers are worried that Google will cancel Stadia. Moreover, Google has already proved that it isn’t ready for the users.
During a Reddit AMA, Google stated at Stadia launch that it won’t provide some of the features like Buddy Pass for a friend for the first few weeks, no support for Google Assistant, and won’t support any multiplayer games. And the worst part is that it won’t stream HDR or 4K to Chrome PCs.
If you have Chromecast Ultra, then it won’t work there either until Google brings a firmware update. Furthermore, it won’t offer YouTube features to the gamer.
On the top, at launch, it will contain 12 popular games most of which are old titles including Kine, Tomb Raider, Mortal Kombat 11, Red Dead Redemption 2 as well as Assassins Creed Odyssey. Overall the game looks great, and if you are into old games, then you should give it a try.
However, keeping in view of the above Google has promised to add some newer titles like Borderlands 3, Ghost Recon: BreakPoint, Rage 2, Darksiders: Genesis, etc. to the platform in 2019 only.
Google Stadia Price details
Several Video games journalists pointed out that Stadia users will have to pay $10.99 per month to play games at 4k 60 FPS resolution. The story doesn’t conclude here it will charge $60 if you want to buy a particular game. It is ridiculous to pay a high amount and get limited features.
Critics believe that it will become a non-consumer friendly product if it doesn’t add new features. Moreover, the world is waiting to see whether Stadia would be a hit or flop, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it gains negative reviews!
