    There are a lot of different schedulers for Linux. The Google Stadia devs were probably not aware of this problem (which might not really be a problem....).

    Is this honestly how Stadia looks on dark scenes? Surely something can and should be tweaked on their video encoder, right?

    That sort of compression only makes sense in high contrast scenes. If the whole thing is dark, it should be compressed in better detail, obviously.

    On the recent episode of As the Stadia Burns ...

    Borderlands 3 is having a Farming Frenzy event running from Jan 16th - Jan 30th on every single platform except for Stadia, because it isn't running the latest codebase.

    Stadia is suffering some Quality Control issues with their controllers and one of Google's adjustments makes the controllers incredibly louder, greatly annoying their consumers.

    Wow, Google couldn't or wouldn't even name the titles or even the developers...


    Google has promised more than 10 Stadia timed-exclusives will be released by July 2020 - but it failed to name the games.

    More than 120 games are due to hit Google's streaming service in 2020, Google promised.

    "Looking at our upcoming lineup, we are tracking more than 120 games coming to Stadia in 2020, and are targeting more than 10 games in the first half of this year alone that will be only available on Stadia when they launch," Google said in a note to press today.​

    I'm leaking those 10 titles courtesy of github:

    Pong
    Jungle pong
    Space pong
    Deep sea pong
    Arctic pong
    Googleplex pong
    Jurassic pong
    Pong 2
    World Domination Adventures
    Destiny 3

    Don't tell @ultragpu that they're running on more flops than the PS5!

    Love you ultragpu xoxoxo :)

    The question is whether Google will stick with this or bail like they have with many other products.

    So will there be a next gen Stadia or is this one and done?

    If Nintendo is going to just stand around while the next generation arrives rather than looking to have a next gen Switch next year, maybe that will give Google an opening.

    They will probably just sell all their game tech to Amazon or Ubisoft.

    Should have a poll to see which quarter people think Google will nuke it.

    I know it seems cynical but Google has set a precedent.

    Don't think someone could just buy Google's "streaming tech". If Google is serious about Stadia they could buy a big publisher like Ubisoft or EA.

    That would certainly change things overnight..

    Sure ... If they (publisher) wanted to throw away their existing franchises and profitability.

    If they were being bought out that's not relevant...

    It's a case of the execs retiring filthy rich, never having to worry about IPs again, and the workforce being made to do whatever Google asked, which would mean working years on AAA IPs released to an audience of tens of millions of people.

    It's a case of whether the shareholders like the offer or not..

    Right, as you said, it's all about shareholders, cash out now or continue the investment for now and the future. ObAnalogy: Do they want to serve up their herd as steaks now, or keep the herd healthy for dairy, breeding, future dairy and future steaks.
