If you’re planning on picking up Google Stadia, then you have a few options. You can purchase the Founder’s Edition, which includes a Chromecast Ultra, as well as a three-month Stadia Pro subscription, and one voucher to give a three-month Stadia Pro sub to a friend. If you want to wait things out, non-Founder’s Edition users will be able to pick up the Stadia service at some point in 2020. The Google Stadia Founder’s Edition will only be available at launch in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland at launch.

      Now there is something I want Digital Foundry to examine.

      Hate to article-shit, but I think this article could do with a clarification pass.

      It makes zero mention that Stadia access is only available to Founders / Premiere edition purchasers. Everyone else has to wait until 2020 in order to not have to buy a controller+chromecast+pro-sub package.

      And lines like these...
      If you’re planning on picking up Google Stadia at launch, then you’re going to have a nice assortment of games to dive into.
      players will be able to download and dive into a total of 12 “carefully-chosen games”

      ... could be read to imply that you get 12+14 games for free. With Stadia it makes all the difference because there are still people that think streaming = Netflix = this is Netflix for Games. That's not the case. Maybe pricing is embargoed? If not, even an abbreviated "games will cost $XX to $YY", or a simply chaning "are available at launch" to "available for purchase at launch" would help out.

        there are 2 tiers of Stadia, pro & free. free doesnt launch until Feb 2020

        With the base level of Stadia, you pay nothing, but are able to buy games from the Stadia storefront and play them across your devices. Games will max out at 1080p/60 frames-per-second in the base tier.

        With the Pro level of Stadia, you pay $10 per month for what is essentially a PlayStation Plus/Xbox Live Gold-esque service. For that monthly fee, you get monthly games that are yours as long as you keep your subscription. You'll also get a discount on game purchases. And games will stream in 4K at 60 frames-per-second, with surround sound.

          I understand these details. I was just saying is that the article doesn't mention them in passing. It's important in this specific case vs a physical console in order to do away with the Netflix for Games assumption.

          Thanks for reposting the deets, though!

          Negative. My understanding is that the Pro sub just gets you access to 4k gaming but you still have to BUY the game to play it t.

            if you have the pro service, it does offer free monthly games, which you keep as long as you're subscribed.
            (this is literally from the google presentation!)

            but if you want something thats not a part of the free monthly games (or are using the standard version),
            then yes, (as of right now) you'll need to buy it.

              Which games count as the "pro" service games?

              Just Destiny 2? 🤮

      Stadia wouldn't be too bad if the games I purchased on the platform could be downloaded and played offline too. Too bad this isn't the case.

      Oh ok I thought one of the major complaints was that there wasn't a subscription service type thing to access games. Glad there is!

        Subscription is optional

          Yeah I know. A lot of people were complaining that they didn't have a sub model for free game access (like game pass etc).

        the subscription gets you just destiny right now, who knows what games they will add later on. doesnt seem promising when the first game is already a free game

      I still can't believe they want you to buy the game and pay for streaming. Lol what?


      If they were smart, they'd pull an epic games, take a hit and have one or two particularly great games free with a sub or something or even pay for exclusive game or two to bring people in.

        The free version launches in Feb 2020.
        The paid version launches this month.

        The free version streams at 1080p/60.
        The paid version streams at 4k/60/HDR.

        The free version requires you to buy the game.
        The paid version offers free games each month that you keep as long as you keep the service, and offers discounts on buying games.

          Well I'm out of the loop or the media is harping on the wrong stuff, I had no idea about that stuff.

          I'd be happy with 1080p/30/noHDR but very very consistent gameplay.

        Clarification that the paid service only offers a subset of free games, and that games not included with the subscription would need to be purchased, but would be discounted vs the cost to the non subscription price
