Why Google Stadia Could Not Succeed

Ever since the launch of the online game streaming platform in 2019. Many have shown doubts about the future of the platform due to Google’s own way of doing things. Google is the type of company that like to see everything they touch flourish within the shortest possible time. If things do not go in that direction, they quickly discontinue and shift their attention to something else. The second factor that lead to the doubts is in the pricing. Many people critized the service for its expensive games. Many people wouldn’t like to pay high cost for something they cannot own physically.
