Stadia, google get's into gaming

Pre order is out, anyone getting it? I love the idea of it, and hope it works well, not sure I'm ready to pull the trigger just yet. I'm excited to see how it goes, I've slipped more into a casual gamer but its very temping.

Wasn't the problem the limited bandwidth that most potential costumers have to deal with in the US?

And wasn't this a sugar substitute?

They’re promising 4K60, right?  That’ll take about 15 Mbps.  The bigger issue, I should think, will be latency.
