The annual Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2019 is underway and runs throughout the week from March 18th to March 22nd in San Francisco, California. :giggle:

Formerly known as Project Stream while in development, today Google announced their cloud gaming subscription-based service Stadia via Twitter complete with Stadia Developer applications being taken and an Official Site now online as the AAA video game platform is currently slated for a 2019 launch.

According to Wikipedia, since the games are hosted on Google's servers Stadia needs no additional hardware... only requiring the device to have an Internet connection and support for their Google Chrome browser.

:poll: Check out the Stadia videos below, and let us know in the Site Poll if you plan to jump on the bandwagon for Google's new gaming service or not!

To quote: Stadia works atop YouTube's functionality in streaming media to the user, as game streaming is seen as an extension of watching video game live streams, according to Google's Phil Harrison; the name "Stadia", plural of "stadium", is meant to reflect that it will be a collection of entertainment, of which the viewer can choose to sit back and watch, or take an active part in.

I'm not paying a subscription to play my games this isn't freaking Netflix. If the system does not support physical games I will not buy it. Everyone else can go ahead and pay $29.99 a month to play Minecraft or Call of Duty but not me.

unfortunately you're a minority resisting to change
i know it could be the end of backups and it sucks balls, but that's exactly what they're planning

i was saying the same thing at 360/ps3 launch about single player games, that was everything i knew about gaming, campaigns- nothing changed for me anyway, but people like me were shouting like you about online multiplayer games
now people barely buy a game if it's not having multiplayer
not to mention the ones which don't know gaming outside multiplayer cs-go fortnite or whatever they're playing now

Last time I checked Single player games are selling like crazy, esp nice stuff like RE2, RDR2 and Assasin's Creed. As for MP games just look at the disaster Anthem is.

I actually can compare Stadia to Netflix and it's something nice to have, but same as with Netflix, the movies I like, I'll def get in physical form.
