Google Is Set To Launch Stadia Game Streaming Service In November
Currently, Google is at E3 2019 ready to give full essential details on everything you to need to know about Stadia. In researching for this post, one of the things I discovered, Stadia won't be your typical game streaming service like Netflix. It will instead have both subscription and games for sale.
Google is planning to launch Stadia sometime in November, to use the gaming platform you are required to purchase hardware, with the " Founder’s Edition" priced at $130 along with a three-month premium service. In the future Stadia will offer gamers a back catalog of free games included with the monthly fee.
Google states that gamers using Stadia should expect games on the platform to have the same retail prices as other platforms ( Steam, Xbox, PlayStation).
Currently, several game studios are collaborating with Stadia. These studios are 2K games, THQ, Ubisoft, Capcom, Rockstar, EA, and much more. Listed game titles are expected to be revealed at E3 2019 next week.
About the Stadia hardware, gamers are required to use the Founders Edition package that includes Chrome cast Ultra which you plug into your TV and a dark blue limited edition controller that will be sold separately for $70 each.
What I think may be attractive to consumers is any gamer will have the ability to play games wherever they want, on your TV, in your Chrome browser, and on the Pixel smartphone. Support for other Android-based smartphones is expected to happen in the near future. The Stadia Pro service will offer the following, 4K resolution and 60 fps streaming that will fully support HDR and 5.1 surround sound. The free tier version will just be limited to Full HD at 60 fps. Future users will need a decent broadband connection, streaming at 720p will require you to have 10Mbps connection, 35Mbps for 4K 60 fps streaming.
