I'm in the market for a new gaming system for the kids this year for Christmas. Bringing out my old PS2 and testing to put up for sale on Craigslist has my kids saying they are tired of the Wii and want to keep the PS2. I'm thinking we finally move on and want something less Wii like, because the kids are getting older. Last night I came acroos Google Stadia. It's a WiFi controller that uses a Chromecast to play real video games streaming. The processing is all done on Google's end. To me this is great because no console cost that will be outdated eventually. However, does the community believe this is viable way to game right now? Should I stay away?
For $129 pre-order you get the controller and a Chromecast Elite. Extra controllers will be $70. It's very tempting. Might I add it's pre-order, which is a nasty word these days.
