An Xbox official criticized Google Stadia, saying that emerging competitors in the gaming market "do not have the content." In an interview with The Telegraph, the company's marketing director has useful tools but does not have the games to back them up.
Mike Nichols, Xbox's marketing director, acknowledged that Google could use its cloud technology for Stadia and rely on its integrated community (through YouTube) to sell its service. That's fine, but it seems that Nichols does not think the streaming service will offer the games he needs to attract a new audience.
Nichols also said that Google Stadia could present difficulties, to the extent that he has not been involved in games very long. It should be noted, however, that former Microsoft and Sony veteran Phil Harrison is leading the new team and that Google's first-party development team, Stadia Games, is led by Assassin's Creed producer Jade Raymond. .
It is also clear that Google has the support of some other big names. Bethesda came to show Doom Eternal, while the entire movie debuted with Assassin's Creed Odyssey last year, thanks to a beta version of Ubisoft's latest historic adventure.

Beyond that, however, the details on Stadia are rather rare and we do not have the complete list of games that may appear on the new service. If you think about it, we do not know how you are going to buy games or how much it will cost, but we hope to find out more at E3 in a few months.
