Google Stadia pop-up to open in Shoreditch, London, with fan favourite YouTubers

The lacklustre Google Stadia is holding a one off pop up event in the avocado-toast-shoe-toe-wearing-hell-hole that is Shoreditch in London. Once guests have reached the event by traversing streets that are packed full of ‘quirky’ individuals wearing retro vintage cyber fashion and gloves made from reclaimed pencil cases they will be treated to snacks and games.

More importantly you will be able to touch actual YouTube celebrities such as Ganky Spankpacker, Boris D’Lovelycheese, Fox Cat 2000, and Barbara Windsor. The pop up will be open from 12.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m on Wednesday December 11th and there are no tickets so you may have to queue, “just show up at the venues” say Google. I am sure that will work just fine.

“At the Stadia Holiday Pop-Ups visitors can get Stadia swag, enjoy holiday snacks, mingle with YouTube Creators, and most importantly, play some games with Stadia!” adds the streaming wannabe.

The ever generous Google want to spread the love so it’s not just Londoners who will have a selection of tired games and over caffeinated Youtubers thrust upon them, Los Angeles and Paris will also get to experience the joy.

“Stadia is a wonderful streaming tech demo that gives us an idea of the patch-free, download-free future we could be living in, but little more,” we said in our 6/10 review of the service. “For anyone beyond those who simply must try out the newest piece of technology, it’s probably worth waiting for 2020 to really see how Google’s vision of our gaming future pans out.”

The good news for anyone who did splash on a Stadia Founders Edition is that one of the buttons on the controller now does something. Wohoo!!
