And the fact that Stadia announced that controllers would support bluetooth way too late just shows Google is getting lazier and lazier not even just with Stadia but their Phones too.

      Video game companies, you should understand that the cloud gaming is not the future. This is bullshit! The traditional gaming on pc and consoles with physical game copies is much better. Cloud gaming is just garbage!!!! And that's a fact!!!

And replacing a working formula with a new one is a whole different story. At this point it's irritating when a legacy company like Google doesn't get things right MOST of the time. Not only that, but they replace the working things which are almost always worse than the predecessor. This has become so usual that there's now a pattern. You get Picasa then you get Snapseed; you get Google+, Allo, Hangouts, Duo and then you get Meet; you get Android One and then you get Android Go. There's always a 'downward' trend in these products which Google somehow doesn't tend to capitalize on.

In fact Nintendo plays so little part in my life because its nothing special. They MAKE mobile games thats better then and basically is the new Smash Bros. The only reason Smash bros is what it is is because people want to pay absurd amounts of money for the “classic characters” when you know people are already out there pirating their games.

                  Anonymous, 30 Sep 2022now I want to use stadia controllers for other thingsLet's hope they unlock the bluetooth chip inside so it can work after January!

                          And Switch games, while graphically inferior, were never gutted/censored compared to ps/xbox/steam counterparts. What a sick joke.

But during the Wii U era, companies were heavily pushing "companion apps" to their games which means they saw at that time, the potential of a second screen.

                                I still rather use my laptop for gaming and apps or sites such as ubisoft, blizzard, steam and gog galaxy.

Everyone owns and play on Switch lolThe switch sucks I haven’t gotten one and dont need one…720p unless connected to a Display? No Legacy Support like the Wii? I couldn’t find one so no people cant just get one as they please and Joycons are a Joke in fact apple only JUST added support for them a few months ago that’s how low of a priority it is for them to have Joycon support.
