Interested to see just how fast this flops.

At least this hasn't been tried before...[oh, wait]???

Jokes aside, really may depend on how much Google has taken the lessons of Onlive's brief existence to heart. Google has a bigger infrastructure to stand on than Onlive did, but I still don't know if I'd opt in at the get-go. Being dependent on an online connection (a potent connection at that) to use the service (which I guess is the point) seems like a drawback.

Better stated here:

Even with cable internet, the last mile is going to cause a lot of problems. I’m not too worried about data caps. People already download huge 50GB games and stream 4K UHD movies from Netflix.

The real issue is that we’re all using different equipment and services. You might have DSL with a modem and a Wi-Fi router. Someone else may use their ISP-provided gateway with cable. You might only have a 2.4GHz option on your router, or maybe you have 2.4/5GHz. Stadia will work better on 5GHz, but that signal has a shorter range as well.

Then you have to worry about the quality of the cabling in your apartment building or throughout your neighborhood. Every time a Stadia signal jumps to a new point of connection after a Google node, it’s going to introduce more and more latency. And Google has no good way of solving that — especially since it abandoned plans to expand its Google Fiber project to deliver high-speed internet to people’s homes.
