Google Stadia Founder's Edition revealed: Price, specs, release date, games revealed

Google Stadia Founder's Edition revealed: Price, specs, release date, games revealed

It's possible there actually is a broad desire to eat up gigs of data playing Final Fantasy 15 and National Basketball Association 2K through Chrome, an untapped market that we didn't know about because no one has offered a streaming service that works well enough. Pay to play, with some games included, but not all.

The launch bundle will also come with a pair of three-month "Stadia Pro" subscriptions-one for the purchaser, and one for a friend. The service promises instant access to AAA titles - no patches, updates, or downloads necessary.

Destiny 2 has been available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One for a couple of years now and the Stadia version will include all current and forthcoming DLC.

That said, this figure certainly changes for those that are interested in streaming 4k at 60fps, which can be done with a Google Stadia Pro subscription.

Given that it would usually cost £53.94 for two people to subscribe to Stadia Pro for three months each, and Google charges £69 for the Chromecast Ultra in its Online Store - the Founder's Edition is a bit of a bargain.

Google Stadia will go live in November for those who buy the Stadia Founder's Edition for $129 / £119. That package includes three months of the Google Stadia Pro subscription, usually $9.99 / £8.99 a month, a controller and Google Chromecast Ultra. It's also a great way to test out the service, since any games bought from Stadia will be bumped up to the higher resolution if you upgrade your subscription.

Walmart will start delivering groceries to your fridge
This time, Walmart will use its own workers, who have been with the retailer for at least a year, and use its own vehicles. Walmart charges a fee for grocery delivery but it has not announced what the costs for in-home delivery.

This launch pack costs $129 in the USA and $169 in Canada, and 129 Euro elsewhere. Stadia Base will not be available at launch, but will arrive sometime in 2020. This one will give you access to some Stadia games at 4K resolution/60FPS. Which is a good deal, even with the limitations, if and when it happens. The American tech giant's take on the future of video games will arrive simultaneously in 14 countries, including Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and 11 other European nations.

We don't know why that is, but it's probably a combination of Google data center locations and average broadband speeds.

Google has a list of about 30 games that will be available on Stadia, including Doom Eternal, Get Packed, Thumper, Baldur's Gate III, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Borderlands 3, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, and more. You'll also get exclusive discounts on games if you want to buy them permanently, too, and for a limited time Pro buyers will get the full Destiny 2 bundle, which includes the base game, all previous add-ons and the new Shadowkeep expansion plus the annual pass.

Some of the most popular games already run on phonesLike with Valve's ill-fated Steam Machines, I have to stretch to find a big audience for Stadia.

With a November release, and with E3 next week, it's likely there are more games coming out or announced with compatibility - including first-party games from Google's own game studio Stadia Games and Entertainment.

To be fair, Google did put out some numbers, mostly to whet your appetite and set the upper and lower limits of how much bandwidth you'll need. You get all the context and insight you need, and all with a touch of fun, and the daily fun element that you otherwise miss.
