Misleading information. He is assuming it will. After it runs like crap because is not compatible, people blame stadia. I don't think the first Xbox even have VP9 decoding and the will not have the proper drivers to run any controller. You will be able to see every game splash screen though. Yaaay /sID: gq6qr5w
I imagine Microsoft will not just sit idly by
It will get blocked makes no sense to support it.
Microsoft will however start pushing xbox game streaming more once the chromium support is stable... I can see the xbox store giving people the choice of download call of duty or just stream it using xbox game streaming part of gamepass ultimate, I can see this being rolled out to last gen and current gen too fits in with their current strategy of treating game streaming as a supplementary service and gives them something esle to help push gamepass pass ultimate sales.ID: gq5kj0h
No it won’t, it the exact same situation as Apple. Blocking access from a Website for commercial reasons is breaking quite a few antitrust laws.
They can refuse to have a dedicated app on their platform but as long as it’s in the browser they can’t do anything.ID: gq6p6hn
They won’t block it because the pool of stadia users aren’t big enough to make a difference.ID: gq6r9fr
Why would they need Chromium to add streaming support to Xbox ? When they do it, it will be through a dedicated UWP app or directly embedded at the OS level.
And it's not really a speculation to say that xCloud will come to XB1, one of the Xbox heads said in an interview that it was in the plans because of the convenience to skip downloads.
I still haven’t figured why anyone with a actual console would want to play Stadia on it as opposed to natively.ID: gq79yqf
It might be my limited usage but actually getting a XSX for Stadia + Blu ray 4k is tempting. I would only consider it if Stadia let's you play in the Xbox using KB+Mouse then it can be interesting. I'd keep it on my desk and some games will run better in the console and shooters on Stadia.ID: gq74box
To get gaming experiences that are not possible on local hardware, with unlocked power of cloud with 100.000 people multiplayer sessions utilising multiple CPUs and GPUs for hyperrrealistic physics calculations and more.
The Xbox One family can decode H264, so if you own the non-X models it can still be good to have 1080p 60fps streamed games, since many XB1 games are running 900p and/or 30fps.
It's also good to keep the console for a few more years.
