Everything You Need to Know about Google Stadia: Price, Availability, and Games”

This will give you a Night Blue limited edition Google Stadia Controller, a chromecast, 3 months of Stadia Pro subscription, and 3 months of gift stadia pro subscription that you can gift to someone else. The company's Stadia Founder's Edition package for early adopters can be ordered for Euro 129.99 and will allow consumers to play video games such as Baldur's Gate III and Destiny 2 from the launch day on almost any device with access to the Chrome browser. On Thursday, Google said it will start advance sales for the limited "Founder's Edition" bundles right away, though it isn't saying how many are available. As far as we know, Stadia is expected to launch probably around the fourth quarter of 2019, along with 25 Stadia compatible games.

As it produces its own games, Google is also courting studios to move to its cloud-based model. Players can also use Google's Pixel phones, but not other phones with the company's Android operating system.

Google Stadia vs Shadow: Game streaming is becoming a really big revolution.

For comparison, dedicated game consoles start at US$249 for the Xbox One (US$399 for the Xbox One X), with the Nintendo Switch and standard PlayStation 4 at US$299 (or US$399 for the PlayStation 4 Pro).

In other words, Google Stadia will burn through metered connections' quota in no time.

If you cancel your stadia pro subscription any time, you can still play the games you bought during your stadia pro subscription.

The game service will be available in 150 countries, with pricing yet to be announced.

Firstly, by restricting access in November to owners of the US$129 (RM535.09) Founder's Edition. At lower resolutions, you'll still need a connection of at least 20Mbps for Full HD streaming, and 10Mbps for 720p. Google says the whole package is worth about $300 but costs $130.

Google on Thursday released new details about Stadia, which will be available in 14 countries starting in November.

Users who don't want to pay for a Stadia Pro subscription can wait until 2020, and then once available use Stadia Base for on-demand games purchasing.

Google tossed around a bunch of numbers and tech specs during its presentation yesterday, focusing on big ones like "4K", "HDR", and "5.1 surround sound", and while all that seems well and good, some users aren't going to be asking themselves the question of whether or not this will actually work for them. An optional Stadia controller will sell for $69. The Wi-Fi controller includes a button for instant capture, saving and sharing gameplay in up to 4k resolution and comes equipped with a Google Assistant button and built-in microphone. And later, if someone missed the event can check the video on YouTube or from the downlink.

Google said playing video games will be as simple as pressing a "Play Now" button. That kind of alludes to what the service is offering.

Hosting blockbuster titles at datacenters and letting people play them on an array of Internet-linked devices will allow game makers to add rich new features and broaden their audiences in what is already a $135 billion (about P7 trillion) global video game industry. Microsoft's $10-a-month Xbox Game Pass offers about 100 games for free download.

"There are now more than 1,900 games in development for Xbox One, all of which could run on Project xCloud along with games already released", according to Microsoft. So other than a few occational free games, Stadia Pro basically offers better specs.
