    If you haven't heard about Stadia yet, check it out!
    https://store.google.com/product/stadia_founders_edition

    Purchase a controller and Chromecast then play games without a PC, without a console or any formal hardware. Just use the bandwidth of your internet and Game On!

    Nice list of games, but not quite as many as SteamOS

    Whats your take on Stadia?

    They certainly have a Library! That word you used, what was it? Oh yeah you said "
    "buy"
    That's probably going to slow my roll. But I'll take a look for sure.":O} Thanks Boo!
  2. Daniel~
    You have to buy your games from them Plus the controler... I fear I must wait for them to prove themselves and for money ":O}

    The pricetag is quite smaller than any playstation, xbox or PC but at the cost of your internet bandwidth (of course).

    If you want 4K gaming, then you probably need some kind of business-class internet... which is expensive.

    As for myself, I'll stick with my library of 500+ games
    In fact, I have thought about downloading my entire library of Steam, GOG & HumbleBundle games some day. I think it might sum up to 1 Terabyte of data, but only the Steam games won't play without the Steam client. The rest will play just fine.

    [edit]
    Its also unclear if you have to purchase the games as well. I have a feeling you do!
    For some people this is a nice option because they already have business-class internet and their Playstation/Xbox is getting quite old. They either upgrade to the newest $800.00 console or find another solution

    One does have to buy the game from them. I have a PS3 and a PS4
    The games for the PS3 are now almost endless and the prices keep falling.

    I stupidly bought a PS4 slim without realizing how dummy-ed down the slims are. Don't do it! Go pro and just stay with the PS3 until you can.

    Its good the prices are dropping, you can still purchase used console games at retail stores and second-hand stores... can't do that with PC games any longer.

    But I fear the consoles are just re-living the age of PC gaming and one day everything will be cloud-based like Stadia.

    Of course I'll still have my ancient PCs running Linux for some classic gaming.

    sounds aright for city boys but in rural areas the internet goes our at lest 5 or 6 times a year, us country boys play games to pass the time.

    Here Here!
    I try to play everything offline if possible.
    Hate being dependent on the internet, but there is so much on it...
  8. Daniel~
    Yep so much on it, maybe why it might be a good idea not to put game there as well.

    My consoles have never been hack, I don't think any ones console has ever been hacked.

    The internet...well no so much.
