  • It's seriously disgusting that execs knew they were lying when they told devs a week before shut downs that basically everything was going great.

Tough shit for the Devs but that's the way the world works. Go cry in the corner yong Also, what kind of boss tells you in advance that he's going to lay you off? Wtf are you going on about?

    • I'm sorry for the developers that got screwed, but I'm GLAD that streaming games from the cloud hasn't been successful. At least not yet. I can think of nothing WORSE when it comes to game ownership and building a game collection than having to deal with cloud streaming. "Always online" games already have a built in kill switch that effectively turns them into perpetual rentals until the publishers decide FOR YOU that you've played enough and shut them down. I'm tired of every fucking corporation nowadays trying to rent me stuff without permitting me to have a local copy. I like building PC's and building and maintaining a game collection, game streaming services as well as "always online" DRM infested titles are a plague.

  • Don't you just love how Google treated Stadia like it was a NOtown update? Put out a product nobody wanted, everyone was criticizing and then just leaving the people they pushed to develop it out to dry like it was the "I don't wanna play with you anymore" Toy Story line. You can't fucking treat dev teams like they're THAT disposable, it's disgusting.

  • I read once an interesting article about the difference in philosophies between Apple and Google: Apple started as a hardware company, forcing them to hyper focus on good design before launching a product, since they can't fix the hardware after shipping it Google started as a software company, where they can just throw everything at the wall and see what sticks, which means in their culture it makes sense to abandon ship quickly I'd say that I wish they abandon the actual sinking ship, which is Stadia, and kept the studios, since they have a lot of resources it would make more sense to learn how to make games first, build a catalog, and then maybe try to create a platform, kind of like what Steam, EA, Ubisoft, and Epic Games already proved that worked for them

  • I understand that ya feel bad for the devs.. but here is the thing i keep seeing.. every time a game or studio fails or drops a shit game. We all say "ohh the poor devs." But most of these devs know who they are working for.. and chose to take positions with companies that traditionally made bad choices.. Or choices that dont promote longevity.. or they go out of their way to attack the fans... at what point is it their fault for choosing such a shit employer? Ya went after that sweet sweet google money knowing full well google will use ya up and throw ya away... do we still have to pretend that they are somehow being victimized.. One of the companies i worked for routinely turned down potential contracts from Nike because we know how Nike would treat us.. its basic business.

  • Considering how many of us knew this would happen, and called it out from day one, I'm not surprised by this. Looking at Googles track record how did people think this would last more then a few months to a year. Google has killed bigger projects for less in the past. Why did they think this was any different.

  • Google dropped their own team, without a beat... They dropped and ignored 3rd party devs like the company re logic. How can programmers, creative design, and developers trust Google after this, if they couldn't even dedicate themselves to what they made? This also made me rethink, if I should publish my game I'm still roughly planning on some platform after finishing my studies at I.T. (about 2 years, then start to make it on my free time), but I might just use other means if this mess is happening to other indie devs.

  • It's simple. Stadia was built by people with weak, bad or no experience in video game. This is the result. And to be fair, anyone who knew well about the video game industry and its history of cloud gaming attempts would have been very careful before joining such a venture. You give it a few years to see how it goes and THEN you join (or not). This will be a learning experience for those who made sacrifice to join Stadia. They will eventually recover if they have motivation.

  • These publishing companies don’t seem to care about the long-term damage it’s doing to the industry. If I was a teenager again, interested in a future career as a games programmer, then I would read all this nonsense and choose a different career altogether. It’s now an industry with no job security, no guaranteed pay check due to high risk of immediate redundancy, no stability for a person’s family, home or location. In short, you’d be completely mad to enter the games industry. All thanks to these bosses who cause a train-wreck for their employees lives.

  • If anyone can afford to go all in on something, it would be Google. There's no excuse for being timid and then bailing at the first sign of competition. If anything, They've probably wasted more money doing that than they would have if waited at least the first products were released. It makes no sense.

  • I am not defending Google here in any sense, but let us be real here: Stadia wasn't doing too well (as with any new born business), but instead of Google sticking it out and improving, they decided to abandon ship. You can pretty much blame this on two factors that Google stands firm on: 1) Majority Rule and their 2) Algorithms. With their money and all-around power to back them up, they could have easily made Stadia out to be a success. They didn't want to wait. They did not think about the people who believed in this brand more than they did. They thought about "majority rule" and letting algorithms to dictate their moves. Fuck you Google.

  • Paraphrasing, but "How can customers trust [Google]" They can't. Google has the majority of the market with the internet. They don't care about their developers, gaming or otherwise. They don't care about the NOtown platform content creators. They care about the same thing every other company based in the US does. Cash. Revenue. The All-mighty dollar bill. And it makes me sick to see a company with that much income just axe a small development team. If there was a better option for searching and content, I'd jump ship in a heartbeat.

  • This outcome was very obvious by the announcement of the Stadia. Why people are surprised when it all shut down is beyond me. Every single NOtownr to every single analyst to every single casual who barely knew much about games and its services could tell how bad of a service it was. Pretty sure Yong also called it out back then too. So why do all the developers suddenly have a surprised pikachu face on?

If she thinks we are going to buy that the management did not know what the upper management was telling them in February is ridiculous. This is poor management. This is a manager that does not want to ever talk about stuff that is bad. This manager and this lower manager didn’t have the guts to tell their teams what was coming. This is the same stuff that’s happening over in the Disney parks in the Disney Studios right now. They don’t want to talk about stuff that doesn’t go well the only want to talk about stuff that works.

  • It shows where priorities are in US: corporate law is above federal law and everything is dictated by capitalistic pigs with so much money they can effectively create the law to serve their own needs. How exactly are the states "United" if they can't even agree over country-wide tax levels? How are these states "United" if they can't come together and regulate workers' rights while taking their god damn tax money to - supposedly - represent them? Don't try and sidetrack this thread - this is not about proving USA wrong. It's about god damn basic human rights! How can you claim your country is based on freedom where the only ones totally free are those so rich they're above the law, whereas remainder of population does not dare cross the line sketched by those with more money than their 10 generations of offspring could ever need?

It is simply disgusting when your employer instead of announcing you and talking to you they take a megaphone and yell at everyone "THIS GUY IS FIRED" instead of being professional and talk to you directly and say "Look , we fucked up. Things didnt go our way. Here is compensation for your efforts." .

  • What a sh**ty thing to do. Reminds me of this Seafood company I worked for in Alaska. All of us left for what was supposed to be a 2-week break but troubles with the co-owner put everything at this plant on hold. After a couple months I went to a different plant for this company that only runs for summer months. Came back home in Sept. and waited, calling HR monthly for an update on the main plant re-opening, always get a vague "we hope to shortly" or something. Meanwhile, I am going broke and hesitantly turning down a couple job offers in WA because I like this company and want to stay with them so I roll the dice that they are close to a resolution. Now it's summer again, I return to the summer plant, having spent the previous month _pennyless_ . I stop by the HR in Anchorage on the way, ask about the main plant, get the usual "hopefully soon". One week later at this plant I get a delivery of three semi-trailers I wasn't expecting. Turns out to be supplies and equipment from the main plant. They had sold their stake in it and new owners had moved in! I had spent three seasons at the plant and every break when I would fly home I'd come back to AK with more and more of my stuff, expecting to move up there permanently. By the time they sold I had pretty much gotten everything. So I lost nearly ALL of my belongings, several thousand dollars worth of games/consoles, but most importantly, everything I had pertaining to horror film research, a hobby I started 20 years earlier at age 12. Mementos, flyers, underground catalogs and thousands of sheets of notes...irreplaceable stuff. I was devastated and later I started wondering when this all went down. There was no mention of a potential sale when I asked a week earlier. Did it really happen that fast? No. It took _another_ year to find out the details, but eventually discovered the plant was sold _shortly after we had left for that 2 week break_ ! That entire year that I was home, calling them, going broke and turning down jobs, they didn't say anything because they wanted me at this summer plant. They strung myself and others along so that we wouldn't go elsewhere and end up unavailable for summer! So I lost everything when I could've easily arranged for a friend up there to get my stuff and ship it back to me. Excuse me, the corner awaits my weeping :-(

  • Google is like that guy who lucked into one immediate success on their first major venture, and expects everything they do to recapture that magic moment of catching lightning in the bottle. And then when it doesn't, they have no idea what to do with themselves. They don't know how to do the hard work to support something that isn't an immediate success. So when it's not immediately super successful, instead of regrouping and adjusting their game plan to find a way to make it successful, they just abandon the project and let it rot. This, more than anything, is why I shook my head at anyone supporting Stadia. Because this is a pattern of Google behavior. They expected ISPs to just fix our infrastructure overnight to support them. They underestimated greed and laziness, despite their own greed and laziness.

  • The same as coming to work for your shift in a factory and all the gates are locked and security is posted and a notice is put up stating, "that your last pay period will be mailed and not directly deposited.". The company really appreciates you! And you will get a letter stating, "No severance, no refund of unused vacation, all insurance canceled, and no refund of insurance premiums. Not to mention your 401k is frozen until the end of the tax year and if you have stock options they are issued at a value of 1¢ per shear or some BS. Companies do not have pensions any longer but if you did it would be cashed out at a fraction of its true value at the end of the tax year in a lump sum.". And this is not restricted to factories and manufacturing centers. If you are lucky you will get a call or letter a week or month later offering your same job at a fraction of your previous pay with no or little benefits, no pension, no 401k, no vacation. Take it or leave it!!! All tech personnel is just f***ed. All levels of maintenance are filled by contractors, Electricians, Mechanics, and all other maintenance and tech support personnel are just replaced by lower-paid and compensated contractors.

  • This sucks for the developers. But, I am still a Stadia user to the end. I think Google made a mistake in trying to make original games in the first place. It has around 2 million users. That is nothing and a likely indicator that an original games is likely to loose a ton of money no matter how good it is. As a result, it makes more sense to just go after big tittles.

  • LOL, if the people working at stadia didn't know they were going to close, then they weren't paying attention. If they didn't first work out networking issues, why would they expect the games to be made on that faulty network to be successful? If they used it for NON fps games, it might work, especially on a network like starlink. Fps games rely on the lowest latency possible, and that's just not possible connecting to a network from the outside at the moment. Well, it's possible but no competetive players could use it so it would be for causal gaming. If they actually get 5G working so that latency is around 1ms, then it could absolutely work but we aren't there right now.

  • Stadia was a cluster from the very beginning. Without first party studios, there's no real way to get people to join the platform. And buying games for a system that is dependent on a temporary server is not a good business model, where being able to play games bought for other systems on it is. What Stadia needed to be was a service, not its own competing gaming platform with its own versions of games.
