Google Stadia – The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? – Reader Opinion

Published

on

A few weeks ago, Google announced the release of Google Stadia a new state of the art gaming platform that would change gaming as we know it apparently.

This has been met with a lot of skepticism in the gaming community if this is going to actually work but I believe Stadia has what it takes to change the whole console gaming model that we have been used to for years, However, it would take some time to actually give Microsoft and Sony a run for their money.

Google Stadia actually got me thinking Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox would have a strong problem to contend with when it fully launches this year. Google Stadia’s cross-platform play is something I’m looking forward to, so you can play hardware intensive games on a system or phone with low specs.

Imagine playing PUBG or FIFA on a 1GB RAM Phone or Laptop and it runs without any lagging or glitches. So it’s practically goodbye to having to get a new system to play some games if they are available on Stadia.

I decided to put out this question to you guys on facebook and I was pretty impressed with the replies I got.

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 1

 

Apeh Ikechukwu said – Even if it will be the beginning of the end for PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it will take time A very long time for it to gain popularity and to be accepted by all.
What if it becomes more expensive? That you have to pay huge to access it?

 

George Oz said – I don’t think to gain popularity is a problem, the announcement alone gathered enough publicity online. And yes it is definitely the end for others Like x-Box and co…Sometimes let’s learn to think Outside the Box.

Osazeme Usen said – Stadia will take quite a long while to catch on. Internet speed is still an issue in most nations of the world. In the long run, stadia will eventually be cheaper than owning a console and purchasing games but that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

 

Olusola Glory Olamide said – Before we throw those Xboxes, PlayStations, Nintendo Switches and stuffs to the bin of history we have questions to answer.
Will most gamers’ broadband connections be fast enough to make a streaming service of that proposition? Will developers all come on board? And is Google the right company to trust with the future of the games industry? Though we’ve got Apple on board and Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon are also in the launch plus Sony Nintendo and others won’t stay put.

γƒ₯γƒΌγ‚»γƒƒε·ž 小岩 γƒžγ‚΅γƒ said – I feel we will have to pay for most of the games…and Nigeria’s 4g speed is about 2mb/s.

 

Samuel Jarvis Adeyemi said -Stadia is a good innovation from Google and I think it’s great since gaming could be done on a device, they said it would be super fast even cheating the speed of light in 4k Res without a glitch.
Anyways Google is the software boss, I think they can do it. 

I hope Xbox and PS4 meet up but cloud gaming is not really their stuff. And Google has the resources.

Swiss Alex said – well mainly I would say Google Stadia is a welcome development but Xbox and the ps4 has to upgrade too

Google Stadia looks like something that would work very well in countries with very fast broadband connections for now. Hopefully, Google would find a way to bridge the gap and fix things before it gets rolled out to Africa and Asia. Nevertheless, it’s a win for gamers with this. So what’s your take on this?

HTC reveals sales from 2019 so far. The decline continues.

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 10

HTC shared its results for the month of October and are not encouraging for Taiwanese manufacturer. October generated only $ 21 million in revenue, most of which comes from mobile phones and the rest from other business as virtual reality (HTC Vive).

By comparison, HTC generated 41 million in revenue during September following the introduction of some entry-level models. However, October registered a decrease of 48% with an annual decrease of 49% compared to the same period in 2018.

Over the past year, HTC has laid off about 25 percent of its employees as a measure to cut costs. It is already well known that HTC is the brand that is suffering the most in the mobile phone market, even more so than LG and Sony, which have lucrative deals in other markets such as televisions, for example.

HTC’s new CEO has already admitted that the company has stopped innovating

This year marked the departure of Cher Wang, the company’s longtime CEO, being replaced by Yves Maitre. The new CEO admitted in a September interview that HTC simply “failed to innovate in mobile phone hardware.”

The CEO added that companies like Apple, Samsung and Huawe did a great job of keeping their equipment relevant, something HTC has failed to do. Maitre says it was due to the investment of resources and time in virtual reality.

However, we know this is “throwing sand at the eyes”. In addition to lack of innovation, HTC continued to drive unattractive pricing at its top end, failing to win back the European and US markets.

Google is investigating executives for allegations of harassment

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 11

No company has a perfect working environment, and Google does not escape this claim. Alphabet (Google’s proprietary business conglomerate) has hired an outside law firm to review sexual harassment cases at Google.

However, they are not company employees but high-level executives. From legal department officials to one of the founders of Android, cases are being investigated by third parties on suspicions that not enough action is being taken.

Some of the cases refer to 2013, and Alphabet intends to investigate the measures taken and possibly reopen the cases, if necessary.

David Drummond and Andy Rubin are the most media cases

Google lawyer and legal department leader David Drummond was recently involved in a sex scandal after his involvement with several colleagues was confirmed. Drummond cheated on his wife and had a son with Jennifer Blakely, one of the team’s lawyers.

Personal relationships between managers and team members are against Google’s human resources rules. However, the case was “muffled” as Blakely was simply placed in a sales department while Drummond retained his position.

As for Andy Rubin, one of the founders of Android, the case is more “pointy”. In 2013, Rubin allegedly convinced a co-worker to do her sexual favors in a hotel room. The case was exposed by the New York Times that led to Rubin’s departure from the company, with compensation of $ 90 million.

In 2018, company employees spoke out

A year ago, several Google employees gathered in New York to protest how the company deals with sexual harassment. The protest includes officials not only from the US but also from England, Germany and Japan.

In response, Sundar Pichai stated at the time that about 48 senior employees of the company were fired on harassment charges. The situation does not seem to have improved as the Alphabet decided to take legal action and investigate the cases.
