The Google Stage game controller feels surprisingly good

Today, Google has removed its Stage Cloud game platform and shows a bold but largely untested vision of the future of games that involve real-time deploying and playing software over the Internet. We still don't know much about how Stadia will work, how much it can cost, whether it will act as a Netflix subscription service for consumers or use a different business model, or when it will be later on. But we got the hands of the custom control Google built, the only physical part of the stage package.
