Google Stadia cost and accessibility details uncovered
The Google Stadia was announced in the month of March this year. This is a GaaS (What I call it) or Gaming as a Service platform by Google. What it actually does is: Get a Subscription, and play games on the Cloud. No need for any high-end computer at all. Pricing and availability have been announced.
The service, initially, or say anytime soon will not be free at all. Google is charging some bucks per month to allow players to play games on their Pixel devices, TV using Chromecast and dedicated Stadia remote. Also, on browsers as well.
Google Stadia Pricing and Avaialability
There will be two models for the subscription.
The Stadia Pro will cost you $9.99 which gives access to a bundle of old PC games and console games at 4K resolution and at 60FPS straight.
But here is the twist, every time a new game is added, you will not get that included in the Pro bundle. Instead, the subscription of the game will be different from what you pay for the Pro bundle.
Another one is the Founder’s Edition. This will cost you around $129 and includes three months of Google Stadia, A Chromecast Ultra, a limited edition Night Blue Google Stadia controller.
Not only this, you will also get access to Bungie’s Destiny 2. Also, a buddy pass code for sharing Buddy Pass with a friend. Or sell it to him, which I would do if I were you ( xD ).
Later in the year 2020, they might make Stadia free of cost. But most of the free things have side-effects as well.
You will have to purchase the games to play on Stadia. And the game will stream at 1080p only.
Starting November 2019, you will be able to get access to Stadia, however, it is still not sure, when the service will launch in the different markets.
For now only few countries will get access to the services:
