Stadia Wave Podcast #2- Don’t Call Stadia Netflix for Games



Stadia Podcast

This week, the Stadia Wave Podcast boys are back to challenge the long running myth that Google Stadia is “Netflix for games.” The conversation veers from Vudu to Hulu and all the way to Gamefly, but somewhere along the line a better analogy is created. Regardless, everyone is still left relatively in the dark about what is really happening and what the platform means for the future.

Better yet, the gang discusses their dream subscription service for the Stadia and end up with some interesting and surprising answers. Raheel somehow finds a way to bash Pokemon in the process and a Google first party game service is naturally thrown into the mix. Could Bethesda bring Doom and the Elder Scrolls franchises to a TV near you? Could Steam games find their way to the platform (God, help our wallets).

At long last, the guys wind down by pondering a way to solve the marketing void left by Google’s corporate communication plan. Gone are the days of print adds and TV commercials, marketing now lives in the age of the influencer. Is there a better way to launch the platform? Who is the target audience? What’s the best way to reach them?

Tune in on the second and last Friday of every month to catch the boys as they offer their thoughts and hot takes on the upcoming Google Stadia platform. Although news has been slow, there is always something to discuss on Stadia Wave. Find the podcast on Podbean or, as always, keep that dial tuned to Goomba Stomp.
