According to Kotaku reporter Jason Schreier on Twitter, Stadia’s pre-orders were lower than expected and appeared to be a “huge failure.” “The official launch of Google’s Stadia today looks like a huge failure,” Schreier tweeted. I learned from the relevant people that Stadia’s pre-orders were lower than expected. The question is, will Google finally stop Stadia from selling games and switch to a Netflix-like subscription model, or will it just let it die?
Schreier then added that Google is likely to stick to the service, but that success must be based on a broader pricing strategy.
“I don’t think Google is going to give up Stadia that fast, they’re building multiple game studios, but if you think they can sell the game at full price, that’s stupid.” Need to turn, even if it means losing some of the biggest 3A games. “
Google officially announced that the founder’s version of Stadia had sold out, so why should you say that Stadia’s pre-orders were lower than expected? Schreier explained that the founders had sold out, but then Google launched the “first edition”, apparently not selling enough.
