Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

    Rumor: PlayStation 4 to Receive Native PS1 and PS2 Emulation

    A "well placed source" close to Eurogamer told them that the PlayStation 4 may receive an update to natively emulate PlayStation and PlayStation 2-era games.
