Google announced it will release information on the price, games and launch for the upcoming streaming platform, Stadia, this summer. Details on Stadia will be "coming soon."

"Stadia is a game-streaming service that will work on any screen including desktop and laptop PC's, phones, tablets and televisions," reads a news post from VGChartz. "It will offer 4k gaming at 60fps with a future update promising up to 8k gaming (subject to internet connections) and a comparison with existing hardware made during the presentation noted that Stadia has 10.7 teraflops of processing power, compared to 4.2 on the PS4 Pro and 6.0 on the Xbox One X.

"Also unveiled was a new controller (although the service will be compatible with other existing controllers), along with a 'capture' button and compatibility with Google Assistant and YouTube (the latter including a 'Play Now' button that would allow people watching a video to instantly begin playing the game in question)."

A streaming console and service where I don't actually own the games I 'buy'? No thanks. The moment they pull the plug I'd lose everything.

Yeah. It's Google we're talking about here, and they killed dozens of services throughout the years. If this thing fails/don't succeed as much as they wanted, they will just end up killing it.

^And as a result, it will likely be DOA, as too many people will have the same approach and it'll never get off the ground.

I see they're following the recent trend of announcing upcoming announcements.

Nice, excited to see what could be announced. Still unsure if this is the type of thing I would (or even could) ever use, but I'll be going into this with an open mind like I did during the first reveal.

That sums up my thoughts perfectly.

I'm not interested in any streaming box. I actually prefer to own my games.

I never get the point of these announcements of announcements, particularly when they aren't even specific of the date of it. "Hey everyone, will announce when we will announce new info of our product very soon".

Tell this to all the people that have good internet, don't give a shit about consoles, but play a lot on their mobiles, having access to pc quality games on their portable devices at low cost will have a lot of potential for this type of public.

Not if it costs $20 a month or more.
