A gamer using the Google Stadia platform is crying out when the service shuts down, resulting in 6,000 hours of gameplay also “flying”.
A Twitter account named @ItsColourTV posted a request to netizens for help and a request to Rockstar Games when Google’s Stadia cloud gaming service was closed. For this reason, his achievement of nearly 6000 hours of playing Red Dead Redemption II is in danger of fading.
The gamer requires the publisher to support him in transferring the number of hours of play to another platform.
In the post, @ItsColourTV says:
“I’m so upset, you see, my 5,907 hours playing Red Dead Redemption II on Google Stadia now don’t know what to do. Please @RockstarGames please transfer the data to another platform, please.”
If this player’s request is not approved, it means that the other nearly 6000 hours will be completely deleted and must be played from the beginning on other platforms. This achievement makes many people feel sorry and support for the owner because it is equivalent to 246 days of continuous play.
Some people taught this unlucky friend how to use Google Takeout to download data to the computer, but it was very unfortunate when @ItsColourTV said that he played in a different mode and did not save.
Google Stadia is Google’s ambitious cloud gaming service. However, after 3 years of operation, Google announced that it will officially close this service in early 2023. This move is said to happen sooner or later because Google Stadia has many limitations compared to playing games by traditional style.
Although solving the problem that gamers do not need to spend too much money to invest in a powerful hardware system, all activities will be done in the cloud and users only need to stream images. Therefore, this service requires an extremely good internet connection, network hardware devices must also be of better quality.
Google Stadia’s second problem is not owning quality exclusive games to retain players. Gamers are attached to the traditional style of playing games on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation in large part because of the well-invested exclusive games, good storylines, beautiful graphics, and diverse gameplay that inspire people. play.
It is the game development team for Google Stadia that admits that they are not able to continue working and have long since dissolved, making the game quality of this service not too outstanding.
Another weakness of this service is that users have to pay a monthly fee. In addition to spending money to access and play games, users also have to pay service maintenance fees or some other miscellaneous fees. Many people are not satisfied because they have to spend too much money when playing games.
After announcing the closure, Google only accepts refunds for those who purchased games through the platform and genuine hardware devices (handles). Some publishers like Ubisoft, Bungie are said to be working to transfer player data to their hardware devices.
