So what is going to happen to your Stadia game collection when Google decides to shut down the service in the future?

You should ask them. You should also ask Sony and Microsoft about your PlayStation or Xbox online only purchases. If you're with them, you should also ask epic Games and Steam about your online only purchases.

It's a valid question since Google is known to shut down quite a bit of their services. Don't think Stadia is doing as well as they had hoped?

if you dont trust the platform you can alwyas just pay the monthly fee and enjoy the "free games" while google keeps it alive
the selection is definitly not as great as xcloud, but the service definitely is better

Google does kill services but something tells me they won't kill it outright, maybe just morph it into something else a la google music >> youtube music. Gaming is a crazy profitable sector and the streaming market could be the next big thing, if they ever solve the latency problem

This is actually a very interesting question.

Here is my guess:
1. For games that are available on other platform, Google will try to let you transfer most of your collection to your preferred platform.
2. For games that are only available on Stadia, Google will try to help the developer to at least port the games to PC/Linux and then let you move your collection.
3. And there is always the possibility that Google just shut down the service and ask everyone to go F themselves.

So #3 then.

Until, or unless they offer an all you can eat style subscription for $10.00 a month, or offer a compelling game that takes full advantage of their cloud that you can't play anywhere else, Stadia will likely end up like all of the other Google abandoned projects. They also need to stop offering latency sensitive games, it's just a waste of people's time. Good idea, bad execution.

I have to disagree. On my decent, but not great internet X-Cloud works shockingly well, whereas Stadia won't even start. I've tried the two services also on both mobile and on a few other connections and every single time, X-Cloud has been smoother playing and crisper looking than Stadia.

My Stadia runs excellent at 1080p on Shaw. I have yet to try 4k. What resolution does X-Cloud run at?

I believe that it's variable between 720p and 1080p.

Did some reading and its 720p right now. That is pretty low. When the data centre architecture is upgraded from the One S to the Series X next year MS claims they will support 1080p.

Got Stadia back at launch and still playing it regularly - it works perfect on a Gigabit connection. Was able to purchase a few games on sale and pay for them with Google Rewards credit. Ended up getting 6 months of Pro for free and built up quite the collection of free games. Not paying for the subscription now but good to know I get all my games back when re-subscribe. My PS4 is still the primary device but Stadia is great for all screens.

The Chromcast Ultra bundle was on sale for $126, I guess you missed it.
Chromcast Ultra overheating was never a thing, few people reported problems with it being hot while most people confirmed that it is normal and doesn't affect performance.

Why is this deal moved to expired offers?

Moderators are against Stadia now?

My Chromecast Ultra is already flaming-hot to-the-touch on idle..

I didn't want the bundle when I've already paid for an ultra separately. I want a controller for under $80.00.

I think there was a brief deal for Chromecast Ultra existing users on a subscription, but I never received the offer in my email account.. I think Google can do better to entice me.
