Google Stadia Cloud Gaming Review!


hey everybody it’s the one from tested
and today I’m going to be reviewing Google’s stadia it’s finally out this is
the found roots Edition which is out this week for those who pre-ordered it
and I’ve been using it for about the past week playing a selection of their
launch titles and using it in a variety of conditions to see what the
performance and the feature set for cloud gaming at least from Google’s
perspective is all about because I’m sure some of you have read or heard this
is this launch is not without some interesting launch conditions let’s call
that so if you’re not familiar stadia was announced earlier this year
something that Google has been working on for quite a long time now and it’s
not necessarily their console because it’s not real console hardware or a game
platform it’s it’s a cloud gaming service they have data centers that
they’ve set up they’ve built these server blades with very high-end PC
hardware a ton of potential compute an order of magnitude more potential power
than when you get on like an Xbox one S and the ability to then render those
games remotely and stream them over Wi-Fi or over Ethernet connection onto
your pixel phone your laptop or Chromebook when your Chrome browser or
onto a TV using a chromecast ultra in theoretically as high fidelity up to a
4k HDR with iPhone 1 surround-sound and as low latency as you would be able to
expect playing you know almost any game in the home the idea is that you would
not notice it now we went into a deep dive at Google to chat with their
engineers about the kind of streaming technology that allows this to happen
and encourage you to watch that I’m not gonna dive too much into that
compression and latency technology today but we will talk about the experience
and there are a couple of tiers to stadia a lot of people have been
confused about what you buy or what you get
what’s launching right now is the founders Edition so that’s the paid tier
to state and your pay essentially ten dollars a month and you
do get a couple months free with the founders edition the hardware that you
buy to get access to the service and with that you do get one free game at
launch you get destiny too but then you also then have the ability to pay for
games full price games that you would go buy on PC or other consoles there will
be a free tier 2 stadia coming next year and that will be again you buy the games
you won’t get the free game like destiny or whatever games they announced in the
future and your streaming quality will be limited to 1080 so like might make
more sense for a mobile play or playing on a laptop but if you want the best
quality you have a 55 or 65 inch 4k HDR TV at home you might want to then look
at the paid monthly version of a stadia well you’re not buying game console
hardware with stadia you’re not buying a 300 or $400 game console or gaming PC
that you put in your living room or your office there is the opportunity to buy
some hardware to make stadium work so the foundation comes with this
controller and you can buy the controller a la carte in the future and
the controller is really great it’s it’s designed really well has button parity
with with all the major consoles so you got your triggers your shoulder buttons
you had a good d-pad two analog sticks that again feel really familiar if
you’re used to playing on an Xbox and some custom buttons for accessing things
like google assist in and sharing videos right the center as well as a center
stadia button and it’s over charged over USB or data runs over USB right now on
mobile site it runs on pixel phones and this right here is what they’re calling
the Google the claw attachment design internally this doesn’t come with the
final edition it will be sold exclusively on the Google store and it’s
a really nice clip really well designed as well you clip it onto the controller
right here and exposes the headphone jack your stadia button as well as the
USB C port and then phone’s can snap in right there the grip does for example
this pixel 3xl you have to put it off-center because the grip would press
on your volume buttons but you again you plug in the USB C cable right here and
you then have the ability to control your game on your phone and this is
really nice ergonomic design on a TV side if you want to play stating games
on a TV at launch will only work with the chromecast 4k the chromecast ultra
and in fact at very launch it only works with the chromecast Ultra that ship with
a Founders Edition and other chromecast ultros will need a firmware patch the
version that comes with the foundation has the Ethernet port right here which
is nice so you want the lowest latency you’re gonna want to connect that over
your internet connection and not just use Wi-Fi but of course ideas that you
can play in almost places as you have Google Chrome or
chromecast products so you can also play this on a laptop or PC in your Chrome
browser with a keyboard mouse or plugged in USB gamepad so let’s talk about
performance now when I did my hands on with the stadia at Google’s headquarters
I was using their internet the part of the best possible case scenario not a
really good time with the performance and latency and image quality and their
demo session but taking it to home I was surprised to find that it was basically
the same I do have gigabit access over sonic
internet at home and the latency on my TV using the chromecast and using the
controller here was really really good like going doing an a/b test between
that and local Xbox one it was almost indistinguishable playing
a 4k game on the TV if you go right up to the TV and you try to look at the
anti-aliasing and look at some compression you may notice some of that
if you’re going right up to the TV but at a standard distance away from the TV
of about 10 15 feet no problems with the quality the quality even looks better on
a mobile phone of course that’s running at the phone’s resolution in case of the
pixel 3xl that’s 1080p and I was just flabbergasted I love looking at these
high-end console games and PC games like Tomb Raider rendered on this phone
because my brain just doesn’t believe it works right because I’m waiting for the
phone to overheat I’m waiting for the battery drained down the fans aren’t
nothing like makes me feel like this is watching a youtube video it looks like
it’s locally rendered I’m like pixel peeping and trying to see if I can see
dithering but it just looks great on the mobile device the thing that doesn’t
work so well on the mobile device is sometimes the UI a lot of these games
are designed for play on big screen TVs or designed for play on a computer
screen a 27-inch monitor 24 inch monitor and when scaled down to a six inch phone
I am finding that the UI isn’t adapted to be bigger
for the phone I am squinting to read the text a lot of the prompts that pop up so
it’s not optimized for this size of display and I did find myself wanting to
tap the screen to hit dialogue buttons when it says press a to close this one
or okay I want to hit that okay button with my finger but developers for these
games haven’t made them touch compatible no don’t know if that would be possible
to do so because when you play this on a PC on the Chrome browser keyboard mouse
is activated so I’m wondering could they just activate touch as an analog to a
mouse click for example I know I know Mel touching doesn’t work I still find
myself regularly trying to touch the screen on this phone as I’m playing
games on stadia the places where I did find the most noticeable compression or
deer the ring ended up being on a web browser and on the PC screen and you
know you do need a decent internet connection to make this work
every time you load a game there will be a check on your connection so home Wi-Fi
and our office Wi-Fi which is obviously not the best Wi-Fi thanks Comcast still
stream fine but places like Airport free Wi-Fi that’s not good actually being
able to work and won’t even try to run the game on poor Wi-Fi connections so
your experience may vary right now it won’t even work over mobile connections
and it will consume a fair amount of bandwidth if you’re at home on a 4k
stream for example you may get up to 15 gigs per hour of download for just the
video streaming but of course if you’re talking about of game like Red Dead
Redemption 2 which is already gonna be over a hundred gig download perhaps that
is a little bit of a trade-off and some of the advantage of course of stadia is
that you’re not having to download or update not only the game but also the
hardware system the promise is that over time Google will update their server
Harbor so you’re always going to be getting the cutting-edge some of those
benefits are supposed to also be immediately noticeable now because
they’re using fast storage but game load times are still here I’d say they’re
comparable to having a SSD on your system but you are waiting
for load screens that was a little bit surprised I thought the promise would be
that games would be optimized to load almost instantaneously and that’s
something that console makers are putting into their next-generation
console designs so this definitely unless they adapt that to work for those
games on stadia feels more like a current gen console situation less than
some magical next gen immediate loading console game I talked about the UI and
some of the adaptations that the developers have to make for their games
to work on stadia and there’s a fair bit under the hood it seems that developers
will have to tune for example you can’t just graphic settings in games you have
gamma settings and brightness settings but it’s not the PC game experience
where you can toggle between resolutions or anti-aliasing none of that is
transparent to the user there’s also some back-end work done to make sure the
savegame works with stadia between different
instances but you don’t get access to the file data or mod ability and that’s
still something to be determined how stadia will work with mods it’s
something they’re aware of but they just haven’t revealed to users just yet it
really feels like a lot of the UI work is adapted to make work for big screens
I think it looks really great on a big 65 inch TV and it looks really good on
you know 27-inch computer monitor as well the game the graphics look great on
a mobile phone and it’s amazing for it to see it running on a Chromebook
but the UI elements aren’t perfectly scaled for those sized screens at this
point I don’t know how much work developers have to do so make that
custom work to make that look a little bit better but the idea is that you’re
supposed to be able to swap between devices and I was curious how that
swapping would work so there is you know in the stadium if you back out of a game
or of your pause a game and you load up the web browser you can say resume state
and you have a basically a grace period if you turn off your chromecast and
you’re then moving on to your office and loading stadia up on your office
computer you about a five to ten minute grace period
where it’s gonna save that exact state any longer than that then the server
basically to reverse to a save game and you have to load the game from the main
menu so it’s not quite instantaneous nor is it quite as persistent as I’d hope so
that idea that in the future you’ll be able to pause the game in your living
room jump on you know jump in a lift or a rideshare and play the game on your
phone and then and then play it at the airport and then play it on airplane
that’s not gonna be anytime soon what’s also not available at launch may
come down allowed are some features that Google made announcements for when they
announced stadia earlier this year and that includes crowd play the ability to
watch a youtube video of someone playing their game of city alive click join
multiplayer and join into that game immediately in their browser that sounds
like really cool potential for a cloud gaming not available at launch nor is
State share the ability to share where you are in your save game with someone
seamlessly so they can jump into where you are and you guys can play you know
asynchronously but have that state sharing of save
games not available nor is stream connect the ability for people to take a
bunch of different streams of people playing stadia games and then composite
them in some type of UI again lots of cool opportunities that take advantage
of cloud gaming but not ready at this point right now there’s even just trying
to get parity with the console gaming experience and at launch they don’t even
have things like achievements or the friend pass just yet what I would also
love and I think would help stadia is ability for them to enable some type of
demo mode something that would allow people to try games out maybe play the
first 10 or 15 minutes of a game begins used that cloud streaming service and
then that would maybe entice people to then buy the full version of the game
that’s what I would like to see come to cloud gaming in general but perhaps
what’s most disappointing about stadia at launch is the available games lists
Google put out lists of all the titles and all developers they’re working with
and there are some notable admissions that hopefully would be out by the end
of 2019 but at launch they’re just 12 games yes there’s the destiny to game
that ever gets for free and that’s important
because that’s gonna be a closed ecosystem for multiplayer destiny to
players on stadia can only play with other destiny to players on the stadia
but the other games you can buy right now you know the flagships include
mortal kombat 11 shadow of the Tomb Raider the latest Assassin’s Creed
Odyssey and most notably probably Red Dead Redemption 2 is probably and that’s
last year’s a flagship title that’s probably the best highest quality game
that takes advantage of the fact that you don’t that download a 100 gigabyte
game file to get it playing immediately and I think the games that they’ve
promised coming down the line things like do maternal and cyberpunk 2077
that’s gonna really push the limits of the latency and quality you know the gay
a game like cyberpunk is gonna look amazing and it’s probably a massive game
file that could potentially take huge advantage of clouds streaming and a game
like dual maternal twitch shooter that is gonna push the limits of the low
latency which will vary for different people in the launch countries for
stadia there are also considerations like I mentioned data caps you know
streaming if you have a Gigabit Ethernet connection chances are you probably have
unlimited data so using up to 15 gigabytes per hour streaming 4k HDR 5.1
audio video isn’t gonna be a problem but if you have a cap data connection you
know 1080p streaming will take up to ten gigs per hour even 720p connection will
take up to four point five gigs an hour that can add up but it doesn’t bode well
for when Google and other cloud streaming cloud gaming services
inevitably want people to be using this on the go with their mobile internet
connections with their Verizon and 80t mobile plans and they’re gonna be the
costs associated with that and that’s what they’re thinking is this is a long
term play google says they’re in this for the long haul they’ve built up an
internal game development studio to make games which we won’t see the fruits of
for maybe several years they haven’t shown anything for that yeah and I’m not
worried about necessarily the technology I know that Google
as the data centers they there they are the right people to be investing in
cloud streaming and both Sony Microsoft Neiman Nvidia they’ve already invested
in cloud streaming that feels less like a proof-of-concept technology we even
saw working to some extent years ago with online and more of an edit ability
but my fears of stadia is gonna be the game support and one how difficult will
be for developers and publishers to port their games to stadia you know they knew
this launch was coming and even then they only have these 12 titles at launch
things aren’t ready why is that the case is it really that much more work on the
backend to adapt these games I understand it’s not gonna be a one
button solution to make a PC game work on the stadia platform but if it’s gonna
be a lot of work that means a lot of costs and so my other fear is that
publishers may be scared away not only by that cost but the unproven market
that is stadia and cloud gaming in general it’s that chicken and egg
problem you know publishers may not want to invest and spend the money making
their games work on this platform if there aren’t enough users out there and
there aren’t gonna be enough user out there if there aren’t enough compelling
reasons or content to make people adopt this platform and at launch right now
where they’re already asking people to spend ten dollars a month on this or
paid invest 130 dollars on the founders edition there’s a not a lot to make me
convinced that there’s gonna be a big enough community to convince more
publishers to jump on board now Google has a lot of money they can invest in
the technology they can invest in the game studios maybe they could also
invest in ways to get people into this platform for free and so the next tier
you know the free version of CD I think will be a lot of the proving grounds for
this service and for stadia in the first year of launch that’s coming in 2020
so in 2019 right now November as the stadia has launched it really feels like
more of a beta launch I wish Google would be more transparent about that you
know not all the features are there and yeah this like other Google products
will have more feature rollouts but if it’s something that they announced back
in March and have promised throughout the months and they’re calling this a
lot that’s just not acceptable because this
is not YouTube or Google Docs you know this is supposed to compete with PC game
with Steam with epic the games store with Xbox with PlayStation and those
consoles those platforms don’t launch with almost half of their feature set
not there with the promise of the feature set coming and with this paltry
of a launch lineup so consider this an evaluation of school stadia beta in my
mind it’s still beta at launch and we’ll come back and reevaluate it a couple
months down the line when there are more opportunities playing more games when
the free tier comes out and when that community builds thanks for watching if
you have other questions about clouds streaming about stadia please feel free
to post them in the comments below and we’ll try to address them as best we can
and we’ll see you next time

    Google is a Trash company that is part of a monopoly. They help china with there censorship over seas. And also look at youtube how they censor stuff. so what to stop them from censor gamers as well. 10 bucks a month is the cost of a console between releases. How many people are going to be bought out for a good review? Im just saying.

    The target distance for 4K gaming on a 60 inch screen is NOT 10-15 ft, it's 2-3 ft, no joke. I did my own testing with PC dead space and there's so much more detail (still not seeing pixels) at 2-3 ft vs 6-10. People are so ingrained about sitting a mile away from the TV but it's wrong. 1080p gaming on a 50 inch screen is about 6 ft Target distance.

    The test is to load pure PC 1080p / 4K gaming connect, pause, walk up to the tv until you see pixels, then slowly walk backwards until just after the pixels disappear and all lines are smooth. That is the target distance.

    And of course if you're playing VHS movies, 480p YouTube, etc on a 60 inch, then yes go to 10, 15, even 20 ft haha

    I find it funny that Google Fi has a data cap at 22 GB and they do have Google Fiber $70 a month without data caps of 1gb speed but the problem with that is it's only available in selected areas. Google better have a on using stadia and their phones if it's going to take 15 gigabytes per hour. Because that's half your data within one hour.

    If you get banned on Stadia you would lose all your games that were paid for so it's not that good of a service as for the Founder edition that cost $177 to $191 dollars in Canada depending on what province you live in

    I still rather have a Console or PC RIG Than Stadia due to the fact I don't need a super fast Internet connection (I get 450MPS but still).
    Not to mention with a dedicated PC you can also use it for other things, have mods etc.

    PS5 For console gaming, exclusives etc.
    PC For everything else.

    If the small in comparison Shadow runs nice on shitty 25Mb 2,4Ghz wifi, than surely Stadia with Googles superior server infrastructure will be just fine. !Remindme in one year.

    So what's the point of playing this on your phone (or tv)? You always need to be in GOOD wifi range which is most likely only at home where you probably have a TV ( and probably an xbox, Switch,PC, Mac, Phone and/or ps4). Which makes me wonder what the point of this is? To play games made for a TV on a tiny screen that you need reading glasses to play on? Am I missing something? Why did nobody at Google ask these simple questions before spending a ton of money on development? Thats like that screen thing to just do FaceTime on. Durrr everyone has a phone that they can do FaceTime on if they really want to. If you are going to go half ass into the console world, just don't . Apple Arcade, even though does not have AAA titles yet, has the right idea for moving from one device to another with the same game.

    I loved doing this with OnLive back in the day. Playing my full PC games on my phone while I was out in the world was amazing. Stadia is lacking a few things compared to OnLive though. For example, on-screen controls. I'm really disappointed that it requires a controller to play on your phone. Some games on OnLive were even fully touch compatible like Defense Grid Gold. I also loved OnLive's free trials, any game could be played for the first 30 minutes free. Plus renting games for a couple bucks and you had it for 1-3 days if I recall correctly.

    wait so you pay 10 euro a month or more, and then you pay full game prices and need a gigabit internet!? So this is nothing like netflix model, where you pay flat fee and play whatever game you want.

    So only way to use it is to have Gigabit speed internet? Pass. Cloud gaming is not an optimal platform with current technology. Most people don't have Gigabit speed internet. And a lot of people aren't even in a location that offers it. I myself don't have that option and Charter Spectrum internet isn't fast enough to pull this off. I give it 1 out of 100 stars.

    I don’t know if it’s just YouTube but RDR2 doesn’t look as smooth as normal for pc, is it running 30fps or something? I thought they were meant to be 60fps 4K and all that?

    Playing RDR2 on a smart phone is just a crime in my opinion. It's a beautiful game and you need to experience it on a proper display.

    That phone controller mount is nearly the same as those found on Thingiverse for 3D printing. I printed a similar thing to hold my Nintendo Switch to my Switch Pro controller.

    Besides that if you have an android phone you can use Steam link to stream your Steam games to your phone. Use VirtualHere to pass your controller controls to your PC. Works great with Raspberry Pi as well.

    Also there is Parsec Gaming that provides another similar service but you can use it anywhere.

    If I buy a game on Stadia it is only playable on Stadia and can never be sold or traded in like a console game could. These games will be at full price with no option to buy used. They will also require a subscription of $10 per month to be playable at an acceptable quality compared to current and next gen consoles. The average life of a console historically has been 6 years. at $10 per month that adds up to $720 + the hardware cost of $140 for a controller and chromecast ultra. this gets you only 1 game, and additional games will be at full price and not tradable. So… $720+ $140 + 60 = $960 and that doesn't include a second controller or even the phone mount for the controller. All that money for a sub-par product that in reality will not work outside my house due to mobile data limits and other factors you mentioned. Why would anyone in their right mind even consider this a viable option? No thanks.

    There will have to be a trusted community marketplace to buy and sell used games from and to other users and hugely discounted sell prices for older titles, as you would find in Gamestop or on Steam for a 2 year old title before I would ever consider locking myself into a never ending subscription service to not own my games or be gauranteed to play them at full 4k 60fps resolution. I don't see this happening, so I'm out.

    In that interview by the way they completely laughed at the idea that machine learning would guess what you would do in the game before you did it. Which is absolutely impossible by the way. Also a joke of you to ask.

    I thought it was a service where you pay a monthly fee and you can access their game library, like Netflix but for games. But now I have to buy games at full price (old titles) individually too? without mention the lag problem… so why does this exist?

    So it's basically switch but with but slower more lag and much less choice in games. Hurry up and take my money google!
