Well it'll mean Nintendo will still beat it because they've had a deathgrip on portable gaming consoles for decades (sorry Sony ), and no one wants to be shackled to always online all the time.Unless Google and the gaming media are bizarrely silent about the controller features, it's a PS2 era controller that's had a couple of social media buttons added. I'm really scared as to what that means for gaming if Stadia catches on. With so much talk of how cloud gaming means you never have to upgrade, there's no generations of hardware, etc. That could mean that gaming interface becomes stagnant. Stuck with the same basic controller for as long as Google can dominate the market, and all other platforms will be shackled to the same level.
