On 6th June, Google has disclosed the crucial details of its new Stadia game streaming service, which were clearly missing during the announcement that was made in March. As per the company’s announcement via a YouTube livestream, Google’s video-game streaming service, Stadia, would start to roll out from November.
The system, will act like a Netflix for video games. Google stated that it would ultimately grant people to play games directly over WiFi from any TV with Chromecast, computer with a Chrome browser, and on Google Pixel phones. There is no need to download the games as the games themselves would exist on Google cloud servers. This indicates Stadia would be able to sync game progress across various devices.
The short version – Google Stadia will open in November, in 14 different territories, which includes the US, UK and Canada, with at least 31 games from 21 different publishers being available, for a opening “Founder’s Edition” price of $130 for a hardware starter kit with three months of premium service, and $10 a month after that. There’s a separate free tier coming in 2020. Pre-orders for the “Founder’s Edition” are now open.
