Lenovo Announces Google Stadia Pro Promotion

Lenovo has teamed up with Google to offer three months of free access to Stadia Pro, the cloud gaming subscription service offered by Google, on new Lenovo Legion and IdeaPad gaming PCs. By collaborating with Stadia, Lenovo continues a long-standing strategy of offering gamers worldwide more choice in how and where they play.

The collaboration means anyone who purchases a new Lenovo Legion or IdeaPad gaming PC will receive three free months of access to the Stadia Pro gaming experience. Customers will be able to redeem the optional offer via Lenovo Vantage, the "My Software" page on Lenovo devices, using a URL with a special redemption code. The offer will also be available via our Legion Gaming community in select markets. The offer will roll out starting this month in 22 markets across North America and Europe.

Another early April fools' joke? Promoting an almost abandoned and dead Google project?

This is future. PC hardware for home desktop PC will increase performance no more of 4-5 years from now because end of shrinking of processes and increase of prices. Lithography below 3nm is too expensive and big powerful CPU's and GPU's would be unsaleable and unauthorized for home desktops.

It is the future. But Google is definitely not a part of it. Few has any faith in Google and people are actively avoiding its products.
There will be other companies that customers still have some sort of trust. I have a feeling Microsoft may come out as the winner but there will be other cloud gaming services that will be succeed.

But Google won't.

But if you have one of their gaming laptops or PCs. why would you even need stadia in the first place? I get that everyone's circumstances might be different. maybe some people have a good PC and a really crappy laptop (and i am one of these people but I just load up with a few games that my laptop CAN play decently then the rest of the space i fill with movies or tv shows to watch if i know im going to be away from home for a while) so i can see the idea working but its really such a niche audience

Yes, streaming as a concept is the future. Stadia however isn't.

That's your opinion, you haven't seen the future unfold in this part of the multiverse or have you?

Google: Hey Lenny
Lenovo: Hey Googy, wazzup?
Google: I need help promoting a personal data collection service, ya know, one of those 'I profit' things.
Lenovo: Sure, We got yer back, we know a thing or two of that kind of data collecting.
Google: Sweet!
Lenovo: By the way, have we got a deal for you!
I can see this happening... :shadedshu:

Maybe the idea is Lenovo selling low/mid end PC, and offer Google stadia as a ''high end'' experience? That being said, I bet most people buying low/mid end PC won't have 4K monitor to begin with.

Unsaleable or unauthorized?

What are you smoking? Companies will build more hardware with more performance and features or go broke, who is going to stop them?

Streaming service for games is a dead idea, those who have the internet access have the funds to buy hardware capable, and those who don't......don't..
