What I have problem with is the noise. I got original PS4 which is noisy as hell, and slim one which is better. Pro isn't exactly quite either.

That said, having physical copy as option AND cheaper digital games makes this betetr than stadia

Well i really dont think so Stadia will surpass Xbox, Playstation, Vii or a real PC.

To be honnest SKY is the biggest internet provider among UK country. Thus my honest opinion.
But they dont do mobile services just TV internet and landlines.

Anonymous, 19 Jan 2020Almost believable had you just mentioned you're on this country/... morePS4 DRM is no different if you are playing games bought in digital form. You also have to be connected to play those games, otherwise, you are also screwed. If you don't have internet connection, you cannot log in to your PSN account, and therefore cannot play games you payed for.

This is corroborated by your following passage "my friends sold there PlayStations and got Stadia" -- your friends with Xboxes never had that noise problem hence kept their consoles.

Plus, Microsoft's Game Pass really brings something new to the table, a NetFlix of videogames. Your real problem is lack of experience outside PlayStation.

With the added requirement of persistent internet connection as opposed to the "go online every few days to play offline" ( a notch lower in dumb-ness) DRM of Steam and others.

Problem is everyones broadband has different latencies. And the change from fibre to copper. As well creates lag. I think as concept its sound amazing and would buy tomoz. So on a 5G connection 4k gaming would be amazing. No lag.

Anonymous, 18 Jan 2020Their 4k is just an upscaled 1080p one so, yes. LolAnswer no. But google say yes. Mean while back in the real world. BBC click tried it on a stable 100mbps. Guess what it lagged. So 4k on 35mbps just dream on.

There is so little interest in Stadia they're already literally giving it away

BT also happens to be one of the worst internet providers in the UK.
