Stadia's not for me since I need to maintain a powerful up to date PC for my work anyway, but I did feel at the reveal that it looked very much like the future and had the potential to kill consoles stone dead. Perhaps it still could if the next generation of consoles continues trending in price towards that of a basic gaming PC, but it doesn't feel nearly as appealing any more. The idea people will have to purchase games on top of the subscription fee hasn't really made it much different to a console. I honestly feel like if they'd doubled the price of the sub but given access to all the games, that would have been a far more attractive proposition.

Stuck my thoughts about BGIII in the news thread yesterday, since it wasn't technically an E3 announcement. EA I expect nothing from, as usual. If Bethesda still fail to acknowledge or express any kind of contrition for the unmitigated disaster that was Fallout 76, my rapidly descending opinion of them is only going to get worse. The best thing they could do at this point is let Obsidian make a superior single player follow-up again. I'm starting to fear for TES VI.

Kingdom Hearts III Re:Mind expansion has been announced for this winter.

The game will feature more playable characters and extra dialogue for the story that will help tie into the next story saga. The trailer will contain major spoilers to the base game's story.


Square Enix have also noted that The Avengers game will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia.
 
Paying how much to run games off chrome? In this infrastructure?
And only 2 exclusives at that. The only person stadia appeals to is some millionaire with the internet running through solid gold fibre optic cables

It’s like a puppy born with a rare disease, the guy selling it thinks someone wants it but most people just want to end it’s pain

The first Yooka Laylee was an abomination. I'm amazed it even sold well enough to warrant any kind of sequel.

I'm looking forward to Spongebob!

I have updated the live-stream posts with Nintendo World Championships and Microsoft Xbox for those who just want to see that and avoid any later posts.

I mean, in your corner of the country with your dial-up internet it might not be hugely attractive Cap :p but an initial outlay of £59 and £9 a month is probably a lot more attractive to casual gamers than blowing probably £400-£500 on a next gen console and then £60 per game. You can start playing today for the cost of one game at release, and that's hugely appealing to a lot of people. People already pay that kind of money for Netflix subscriptions and the like. I still think Stadia or something like it is the sensible future of gaming, but yeah I don't think making people purchase games on top of the sub price is the way to do it.

New games on it cost the same. Only older games are free of charge, whatever that means. I do have fibre, but it’s still quite slow.
Even the US doesn’t have a really good infrastructure in most states

So do we just not do Gameplay demo's anymore? Was there a single gameplay demo for any of the more major titles/reveals in that whole presentation? Every reveal was just a pre rendered video. Really boring from Xbox honestly. Some nice reveals but hard to get excited when everything is just a movie
 
Not much to really excite me, but it may make sense for GoT taking so long if he's been working closely on Elder Ring.
New Zealand can also arrest him if he doesn't reveal his book by the time he's on the panel for some cooking show...

Just watched the Cyberpunk 2077 release date reveal trailer/awkward celebrity on stage moment.
April 16th 2020 can't come soon enough.
