Story 2

Many modern routers already have traffic prioritization options (QoS). I’ve used them with mixed results. Many of them can prioritize either a specific device or a service (e.g. “YouTube traffic” or “Netflix traffic”). They haven’t always behaved well, depending on the router, but hopefully since Google has a vested interest in Stadia, this will pan out to be a good implementation. I expect other routers to have this option eventually, and even if they don’t have the service-level option specifically to target “Stadia traffic”, most modern routers will at least let you pick your Chromecast Ultra or other preferred device(s) to prioritize traffic

Story 3

Crowd Play

I don’t mind the cost of the game being £60 for a AAA title. However there has to be some assurances that these games will be playable indefinitely. Imagine sinking thousands of ££s into a library only for Stadia to shut up shop and you lose all your games.REPLY0 replies

Regardless of the port changes they need to do I don’t think it should be the same price even for a new game. I think they should follow steam as an example, they have to port a pc version yet games are normally cheaper than a standard console game, because we don’t actually own the game if we purchase on steam. I think new should be £10 less old games around the same or £5 cheaper…. point it, steam you don’t own the game, and you don’t on stadia.
