    Netflix confirms preparations for video gaming roll out

    It won't raise price plans, even as it adds the games, but we don't have a launch date yet.

    This could be Google's chance to save Stadia from it's current progression towards going EOL.

    Partner with Netflix, stop trying to sell people games via a walled garden approach that almost no-one wants, and gain instant reach into millions of households.
    It's not likely to happen, but then again Google and Netflix already partner on a lot of things, don't directly compete as much as you may think, and have a lot to offer combined.

    Either way i'll be curious how this works out.

    Growth shouldn't be the only mesasure of success; subscriber retention should be just as important.

    ...and they keep on trying. Over and over again.

    Let me own my game, play it as fast as possible and I'm done. I once used Steam to stream a game from my main rig, to a reasonably fast NUC. It... sucked.

    They really want you to own absolutely nothing. Zero. Nadda.

    Given Netflix didn't sell games before, it's hardly taking away from you owning games you buy elsewhere. GOG for eg are still going very strong and I don't think will be negatively impacted by this.
