Google: Stadia Isn't 'Netflix For Games'

No kidding it ain't "Netflix for games." The idea of paying a monthly fee for a service that gives you the privilege of buying games at retail price but requires you to stream the game EVERY single time you play it is just idiotic. Xbox Live and PlayStation Plus at least allow you to download the same game and play it from your hard drive. Don't even get me started on bandwidth caps either.

"To be clear, Stadia Pro is not 'Netflix for Games' like some people have mentioned," Doronichev replied. "A closer comparison would be like Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus. The Pro subscribers get 4K/HDR streaming, 5.1 sound, exclusive discounts and access to some free games. Roughly one free game per month give or take. Starting with Destiny 2 (yay!)."
