What is Jade Raymond up to?
The role I’m filling as head of SG&E is building out all of the exclusive content for Stadia, We have a plan that includes building out a few different first-party studios, and also building up the publishing org to ship exclusive content created by indie devs and other external partners.Jade Raymond
It’s very important for first-party games, in my opinion, to be games that wouldn’t be possible on any other platform,” Raymond says. “I think that’s what’s really exciting and why we’re building out the first-party teams.
There are a lot of things that being cloud native enables that you’re just not going to be able to see on other platforms, and I think that’s the job of first-party, to really show that off and let people imagine what those things are.
In terms of multiplayer, everyone is essentially playing in one big LAN party as far as the tech is concerned, There is no difference or constraints from an architecture perspective of how far the users are, or worrying about replication and all the other things that typically limit the number of people you can have in a game.
It is a long term view that Google is taking, For a big bet and a huge new IP that’s going to fully leverage the cloud, it may be several years. But we do have quite a few exclusive games in the works that will demonstrate some of the exciting things about the platform all along the path. It won’t be four years before gamers get to see the new exclusive, exciting content. There will be some coming out every year, and more and more each year.Jade Raymond
I don’t like viewing STADIA as a PC or a Console, it’s a whole new beast that has aspects of both, with some entirely new featuresShadobolt001
Since Stadia has fixed hardware, I look at Stadia as a console 🙂REPLYMattias Bergstedt
I’m thinking it’s a high end PC that I don’t have to upgrade. 😁 I’ll be playing Stadia primarily on my laptop and tablet.Kenny G
My question to google (unanswered) is when can I setup my Stadia name? It seems like I should be able to set up my name on the 19th and possibly play on my PC at that time with no issues since I did drop 140 dollars (with tax) for the founders edition. It seems very odd that Google is now saying that they are going to start shipping on the 19th. Hopefully we will get an email on the 19th with instructions on how to setup our stadia accounts and log in and play on our PCs since it looks like we will not have the controller with the Chromecast Ultra. I would be interested if you and Lloyd can discuss this issue on the next Stadiacast.email from Daniel B
