Badly, both Nvidia and Microsoft have less of a content problem. Stadia still needs to get access to a larger games library.

Another factor is that Google may have created stadia at the wrong time. A lot of people have guessed that Amazon is using a Vega series graphics card for Stadia, which is a little underpowered as we move into next-gen.

TBH, I think that Google has done a Wii U, created a console (well streamer, but you know what I mean) that beats current gen but is not ready to tackle next-gen. Yes, Amazon can upgrade its systems and have talked about multi-GPU, but both xCloud and Geforce Now are easier to develop for, as both will use pre-existing Xbox and PC versions of games.

I think another problem with Stadia is you need to rebuy the games, where as Xcloud and Nvidia you use your existing library, and if Microsoft keep their current pricing system and keep the games library growing I really can't see why anybody would go Stadia over Xcloud.

Isn't Stadia by Google? It's not living in AWS, is it?
