Stadia sucks but the controller feels nice lol.....

FiOS is awesome and it actually costs more to not have land line so I just get it. Have even used a phone in 4 plus years

lmao at the fact that you think union busting insecure Musk isn't going to run his business just like ISP today
Well it's more competition, which is exactly what we need right now in the ISP monopolized market.

The platform itself is fine, and I like the controller as well, but a chromecast ultra just cannot handle the traffic needed for a good game experience. They've claimed they work as designed and there's no heat issues, but pretty sure thermal throttling explains why I can only get 5-10 minutes of smooth 4K HDR playing and then barely HD chop city with no change in connection quality

If you have a stable connection and can play on a device other than the chromecast ultra it's decent, but can't say I see myself using it over a console or PC anytime soon.

Verizon FiOS, if you're reading this, PLEASE expand your service to the Southeast! The only service we have here is Spectrum which is overpriced and charges ridiculous fees!

Says it's only for the gigabit connection. I'm gonna be changing soon, but don't see any need for more than 200mbs
Considering most devices can't even get up that high (I think iPhone max is like 300), it's a marketing strategy above 200 for the average user.

Seriously research Stadia before you get it. The platform is awful.

10 bucks per month, gotta buy the games for full msrp.

This platform is a money pit. You would be better off selling it than cracking open the box unless you have absolutely no other options for games.

Dang, still not available in my area. Bummer, this would have been a great way to try Stadia out before Google abandons it.

Does this stack with the Disney+ or gift card deals?
