To be honest, when was the last time you thought about it? Google Stadia?? For us, we have discovered the forgotten box that the Founders Edition has come to. A midnight blue controller was neatly placed on a cardboard pedestal as it collected dust behind the cupboard.
Many of us had given up on Google’s unlucky game streaming service, but when we abolished our first-party game lineup earlier this year, Google also seemed to be unplugged, but tech giants did. Seems to have the last trick on that sleeve.
Job listings were recently discovered RoadToVr This shows that Google is hiring a VR expert to work for the Stadia team. We don’t yet know what the final product will look like, but this move to VR could be what Stadia needs to get back in the spotlight.
Where it all went wrong
If you’re new to the service (and you’re quite likely to do so), Google Stadia looks like this: Amazon Prime Video But for video games. You can also buy digital games or subscribe to the service to get them for free, but they don’t run on your own hardware.Instead, Google’s servers manage almost all of the hassle, and all you need is a controller, a stable internet connection, and a compatible smartphone, laptop, or Google chromecast, Play. Input from a controller or touch screen basically points the server-side computer somewhere in the digital cloud.
However, while Google Stadia’s early trailers were very promising, the service didn’t offer many of its outstanding features at the time of its release (and a year long before it finally arrived. Some spent part). Early adopters feel that they are burning with false hopes, and generally negative reviews are unlikely to encourage new players.
I don’t know how much Stadia sold (or didn’t), but the report gives a glimpse of the situation. Doesn’t seem to be good..Rival streaming service Amazon Luna The Xbox may turn things around, but it doesn’t seem to captivate the audience. Xbox Cloud Gaming It is also tied to a very popular service Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
Can Google’s switch to VR see Google Stadia rise better than ever?
Like a phoenix in the ashes
NS Oculus Quest 2Astonishing sales (such Selling better than all other Oculus VR headsets combined It shows that players want a cheaper wireless VR experience (with a launch of about half a year). Oculus’ Quest 2 does just that, but while we spend time with our devices, we may find that our hardware is performing poorly.
Unfortunately, it’s difficult to balance price with technology performance. Something must always be compromised. For the Oculus Quest 2, its processing power has been hit, but it’s cheaper than most other VR headsets, and you don’t need to connect to a PC over $ 1000 to run it. However, with the help of Stadia, these compromises may disappear.
By letting Google’s servers do all the hard work, the VR headset only has to handle the final image streaming and the passing of player movements. Not only is this beneficial for Facebook’s Oculus Quest headset, Google Cardboard Also Fantasy It’s back because it’s finally possible to output decent VR performance even on smartphones with insufficient power.
Certainly there are obvious issues to be resolved, as even a slight delay in movement can cause severe motion sickness and loss of immersiveness during the experience. But with the potential of Google Stadia in VR, we’re excited to be able to play the service again (this is from people who abandoned their Stadia controller before the three-month free trial expired).
We hope that we will not feel burned again by our excessive excitement.
