    ... unfortunately, country with the highest production of cars per capita in the world isn't on the list of 14 countries where Stadia will launch.

      If Google can just get the players who play just 1 game every year or less. This is fine, even good, and is maybe only slightly below median when compared to the median gamer. Gaming is more of a luxury in terms of time than movies/music, you don't care as much about time spent on movies or music in the way you might if you start spending more than a few hours/weekend on a game if you have a family. The pricing structure isn't too bad for this once they have 1080p for free (plus cost of game) next year. If they want to start going after the more frequent/casual gamer, then mods, backups, latency, and a potential subscription model start to become more important, and if they want to go after the indies, they'll need to release a public SDK with tools.

      Does such a market exist and is it big enough? We're about to find out, but I think yes. Mobile gaming has affected gaming in mostly a bad way, maybe streaming will have a slightly better effect. The AAA games they're starting with isn't all too bad a start.

      Edit: To be clear, I think this is a new market, that nobody really addresses right now, not consoles, or other games stores with as much convenience as one click streaming.
