    Google Halts Sales Of The Stadia Controller & Games

    2 monthes ago - By Android Headlines

    Sales of the Stadia controller are no more, following an earlier report that Google is shutting down Stadia for good at the start of next year. As a silver lining, anyone who made purchases of Stadia hardware through the Google Store is going to get a refund. So, at least that's something. And taking that into consideration, it makes perfect sense why Google would stop the sales of the Stadia controller through its Google Store online shop.
    Google would just have to turn around and refund those anyway. So why sell them? The controller has also been out of stock at retailers like Best Buy...

    Stadia Is Officially Shutting Down, C'est La Vie

    2 monthes ago - By Android Headlines

    Stadia is officially shutting down, Google has confirmed this morning. C'est la vie. The writing has technically been on the wall for a while now. So this shouldn't surprise anyone. It also now makes sense why things like the Logitech G Cloud handheld didn't have Stadia built-in. And why Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed titles were going to be available on Luna, but not on Stadia.
    With little to no communication from the Stadia team or PR for months about upcoming features or changes, new game additions, etc., it's hard to look back and not see that this was coming. It was just a matter...
