On that note - if anyone wants to sell their Chromecast Ultra, I'm interested Gonna load one on to all the TVs!
Get a trial, and have a go. Loads of them kicking about if you have a Google account (I think). Worst case, try the £8.99 Pro, get the free games and have a go. Any chrome browser, or chromecast ultra. Mobile, tablet...you name it.How would be the best way to try this out , is there a native app for Android TV? Or Nvidia shield I guess would be a good option maybe would it? I'm guessing at the end of the day though it's no competition for an Xbox series X or ps5 so perhaps having already invested in those there's little point me investigating this really, it might be interesting if there was a sub you could pay and not have to pay extra for games like cyberpunk but I guess that sort of model simply isn't sustainable unless you're Microsoft...
It looks interesting though and I'd give it a go more for curiosities sake than anything really

Normal version is up to 1080p60, with pro up to 4k60.
Most people got Cyberpunk because they had a £10 off first purchase token as well as getting Stadia Premiere free (worth £90 rrsp). I paid £32 for Cyberpunk and got the Premiere pack fortunately. Worth it!
And while it might not beat a PS5 just yet overall (I think it does personally), it's comparable to a mid-tier PC for sure; most reviews are saying Stadia is the best option for Cyberpunk, as it requires minimal hardware outlay - though they all concede a high-end PC looks superb (but costs a lot).
On CCU, you need Stadia pad. On any mobile, or chrome browser based option, you can use a PS4/Xbox controller. Others are less supported.Yeah bit gutted I missed that offer (typical for me though) , so I take it if I want to play on my TV I need a Chromecast ultra, can I use a PS5 or xsx controller or do I need the stadia controller? Never really looked into this to be honest but it looks interesting although to be fair apart from cyberpunk I'm pretty sure everything else will play and look better on a PS5 or xsx. Hmmm will have a look into it though. Thanks
It's long gone globally now, sorry!Hi all
intrigued to give this a try and wondered if anyone had any info and/or link to the Cyberpunk Stadia offer please. I’ve seen a promo end date of 17th December but can’t seem to find the link?
is it a US only deal? Thanks in advance
but PC looks loads better still

No RT but first purchase might have a £10 off token on your account.So do you get ray tracing on stadia, I'm really going to have to try this for myself methinks. I guess the problem is you'll never get Sony or MS first party games on stadia , purely multi plats presumably and as far as I can tell a lot of the free games (and even some you have to pay for) are things you see included on gamepass.
Definitely going to give it a go though, just having to pay £50 at least for stadia premiere now is a tad annoying having missed that offer...
They ran out of stock the moment people realised PS4/Xone versions were goosed; Stadia was the easy option due to the offer and no hardware etc.Ah OK, that’s a shame. Can’t believe I never even saw the offer Never mind! Thanks for letting me know. Bit odd still reading the ‘deadline’ for the offer as being the 17th but sure I’ll check it out soon enough.
It's a really valid point actually - you develop for one hardware solution...possibly the reason the port of Cyberpunk has been relatively good!For now....Running F1 2020, the game play graphics really aren't far off real life TV footage, and all delivered by a device smaller than the palm of my hand.
I'm reading Google have managed to get to developer to work on Stadia 'exclusives', I would imagine if a games company only needed to focus on optimising their game for Google servers and no worry about multiples platforms (avoiding disasters like Cyberpunk on consoles) the results could be astounding.
The cloud is the future of gaming, I now have zero doubts.
Whats you're WiFi connection like? Are you on 802.11AC or N?
Didn't realise it could work on Safari on the iPad.....Runs to iPad.....Doh, my iPad is as old as my laptop (Original Air), so not a chance of getting it work . Still Cyberpunk looks amazing on the laptop!!
If you really struggle with WiFi try Powerlink connections, I'm using them with my Chormecast and getting fantastic results, no slow downs .
