In a separate event yesterday, Google’s Gaming Company Stadia was launched officially to the public. It was made available to US and European nations for now and may roll out to other markets soon.
Google’s Stadia is Finally Official. Unveiled Subscription Plans for Gaming
It’s basically a gaming platform allowing gamers/users to play smoothly on TV. Users don’t need to download the game actually, but they can play by connecting to TV and browsing/selecting their desired games through chrome.
Through Stadia, you can play games in 4K HDR at 60fps and 5.1 Surround Sound. You just need to subscribe to Stadia Pro and plugin your Chromecast Ultra to your TV and pick a game.
Along with the access to this new platform, Google’s also throwing some other necessary items and offering it as a whole package. The bunch includes A 3-month buddy pass, access to Stadia Pro for 3-months, a Stadia founder’s edition gaming controller and a Chromecast Ultra.
This bunch is currently priced at $129, which Google claims to be worth of around $300 and said, will be dispatching orders from November this year. Yet, the pre-orders are already up and you can order them via Google’s store (http://bit.ly/2I0JVr9).
Stadia is currently made available to these below countries only:
If not the bunch, you can buy any of those items individually too. In such case, the Stadia controller will be of $69.99 (same for all black, white and wasabi colors), the Chromecast Ultra would be $59 and access to Stadia Pro will be of $9.99 per month.
