    I can get Stadia support on my new phone?

    Wow.

    Great.

    Fantastic.

    I'm so excited.

    But .... what's Stadia?

    They could make it run on my watch, fridge, car or even the dog, and it still wouldn't matter.

    Whilst it's a closed system, with expensive games and unacceptable latency issues, it's not going to work. Normally, you would forgive Google a commercial failure because the technology they are launching is new/innovative/existing/etc - but this doesn't fit into any of those cateogries.

    Shame really! I'm all for progressing game streaming, but not when I need to re-purchase all my games to use the service.

    I was also put off by the launch price (for controller and Chromecast) being more than the cost of a new motherboard. Its not like they priced it cheap to get it kick started.

    This just all feels to little too late. This should have been the case from launch.

    Stadia was and still is DOA.

    Google will soon ditch it, just like all the other services they have ditched in the past.
