Early Stadia reviews highlight game streaming's latency hit

Are you prepared for the extra input lag?

That's pretty awful for something so hyped up. They need to cut this more than in half at minimum

It's not so much the lag that screws it for me. It's the fact that it needs a 200mb connection which is mostly not even available in the UK for 4k which apparently isn't even 4k and gets hammered in visual quality by a XB1X at 4k.

How well will it fare against the two new consoles? Not very well I'd guess.

IDK.. the price seems OK but I just can't see it taking off. Those who have a 200mb connection usually have the funds for a decent console or PC. So it's only really going to appeal to casual gamers.

I'd think even for casual gamers Xcloud + Gamepass would be a better option over stadia

It will still be bought by millions who don't even know what latency is.

To add to hilarity of this highly predictable fiasco, they called it "negative latency".

This is the kind of news i really like when things go this bad for a new thing that clearly... should have been delayed, refined, worked out and had a decent incentive for people to get into. but it didn't have any of those things and if, or rather when Google pulls the plug on this thing, none of your games that you bought will stay with you.. (where you own a license to play because you paid full price)

Yeah well played google. I hope people drop this quickly and look elsewhere.

Latency is still less than a lot of TVs filter modes tbf. Not pro gamer tier but it's less than last gen consoles. If you used an average TV/not setup right and a wireless controller you'd probably end up in a similar ballpark in terms of total latency.

While Stadia has no competition it seems like it will do OK, this is a very popular niche they're breaking in to, its essentially the new premium handheld gaming platform. But its unlikely they could compete with XCloud.
