NXpress Nintendo Podcast #161: Google Stadia, Apple Arcade and the Future of Nintendo

With the recent announcement of Stadia (Google’s cloud gaming platform) and Apple Arcade (the world’s first game subscription service), the NXpress crew decided it would be best if we discuss how these two services could potentially impact Nintendo’s business strategy moving forward. Google promises that Stadia’s cloud computing power is the equivalent of a console running at 10.7 GPU teraflops, twice the size of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X combined. With the App Store, Apple ignited a worldwide app phenomenon that has revolutionized how we spend our time on mobile devices, and now they promise to take it to the next level. Can Apple and Google deliver on their huge promises? And if they do, will enough people care and buy into their service? If so, will the success of their platforms push Nintendo to release their own unique streaming service?

There’s a lot to debate and it gets contentious, but before we get to all the screaming and shouting, Patrick sets aside some time to review the colorful puzzler She Remembered Caterpillars, and Izsak continues his month of forcing himself to play indies with a look at Astro Bears Party, a four-player party game reminiscent of a 3D Snake. All this and more on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast!

For all this and more, have a listen!
