Right after the launch of Microsoft Project xCloud & Samsung PlayGalaxy Link. Google is also joining the race but with different sorts of implementations. Which you can consider one step ahead than the other game streaming services. I am exactly talking about the most awaited gaming service “Google Stadia” that is expected to launch on the 19th of November 2019. Most of the people were expecting this announcement in March, but it took 6 months to get an official date.
In the starting phase, it will include only a few number of countries with up to 40 game titles. Which will be expanded soon to other countries along with other titles. The most remarkable feature of Google Stadia Gaming is its compatibility with existing or current specs of your hardware. No longer you need to upgrade your gaming hardware for playing the latest games. Google will provide you all with its most powerful streaming service. It includes smartphones, tablets, and PC platforms.
How much will Google Stadia Cost?
Prices are not that much high for gaming on Google Stadia if you compare them with buying several games separately along with hardware upgrades. Other than that the features which Stadia is offering are a lot better than any other platform in terms of cost-effectiveness. The following are subscription charges announced by Google for Stadia.
- Google Stadia subscription service will cost $10 per month.
- 3 months subscription will cost $130 along with a Controller & Chromecast. (Founder’s Edition)
- The price of only Controller is $69.
Chromecast Kit will have USB support with TV, Monitors, and Game Controllers as well. Founder Edition includes all these accessories, while you also can purchase them separately. Gaming on Google Stadia can support screen resolution up to 4k 60 FPS which will be upgraded to 8K at 120 FPS in the near future.
