    They are basically converting your CAPEX with hardware to OPEX instead. You pay 129 for CAPEX + 10 bucks monthly for rental of resources to run games and the platform experience + pay for games you wanna buy on their platform.

    If stadia was the equivalent of Spotify or Apple Music not regards when something new comes out and its already there to stream at max settings then that would get me excited... but the way they’re implementing stadia with their subscriptions, omg another one to the growing list yea...😒 just the way it’s setup it is destine for doom ... and I need to buy the game still and need subscriptions common .... its like having to buy the album or the movie before you can stream it with the subscriptions lol 😂 corporate is so money hungry that they lost there common sense lol 😂

    69$ for a weak boring looking controller? 10$ a month for limited games? in 6 mos you could of bought most games? this is neither a deal or tempting lol..

      "If you cancel your subscription, you will lose access to games unlocked in the subscription and any add-on or expansion content you have purchased for those games." So you get a game a month (presumably, they just say they'll add more), but you can only play those games as long as you keep paying $10/mo. It's like Humble Bundle, but totally shitty.

    Where do I buy?
    Actually 9.99$ a month for just 4k is too much. Imo
    Plus have to buy the games separately .. come on bruh
    Hmm "currently $9.99 per month. You can cancel your trial at no charge at any time before the trial is over. If you cancel your subscription, you will lose access to games unlocked in the subscription and any add-on or expansion content you have purchased for those games. Add-on content is not refundable."

      Also the cost of the data cap overages. Don’t forget that hidden cost.
