Well yes I said that back on Page 1 of this thread

a) no you didn't, but you said you didn't think it would.work, and
b) you'd changed your mind by page 3 ;)


a) I posted this just over a year ago (top of the previous page):

Unless it goes free tomorrow, with all that shit they talked about before launch, y'know, you're watching a YouTube video about a game, or an advertisement for a game and it has a 'PLAY NOW' button next to it and 10 seconds later you're playing the game? Unless that stuff comes really soon, Stadia is dead. If it isn't already.

And that links into (b) which is basically that Google told a fuckload of lies about what Stadia was and what it would do, and I made the mistake of believing some of their horseshit.

I said right from the start that if it's just another OnLive it'll fail. That's what it turned out to be, and it did.

Some not exactly edifying details now starting to come out of Google and how they lied to and mistreated the Stadia team and devs.

If you think about it, the dev cycle for a single game these days is three years plus, the people who joined Stadia thought they'd at least get to make one game, and many uprooted their lives based on an assurance they'd get to do so. Also Phil Harrison blatantly lied to them a mere week before them then being told the plug was being pulled.
