Google Stadia's price, games, and launch date have leaked

Google has revealed more details on its Google Stadia cloud gaming service as the Silicon Valley giant looks to break into the £140bn video games market. This includes the controller and a Chromecast Ultra so you can use Stadia on your TV, as well as a three-month Stadia Pro subscription for both you and a friend. Additional well-known launch titles include Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Mortal Kombat 11, Final Fantasy XV and NBA2K. With the initial announcement being mostly a technology intro and teaser of what the service could be capable of, Google promised more to come later this year, and now in a pre-recorded presentation this morning, the company has announced their launch plans for the service and how it will work for customers.

The Stadia Founder's Edition bundle is exclusively available through the Google Store, which is also the only place to buy extra Stadia controllers at launch.

Finally, the Stadia FAQ notes what happens if you lose connection or are throttled during play. The Stadia controller, meanwhile, costs $69 in the USA, with global pricing yet to be revealed.

Google's not saying exactly how many games will be available at launch, but it did announce 30 titles from creators including Ubisoft, Bethesda, Electronic Arts, Take-Two Interactive Software, and Warner Bros.

Stadia Pro, which will launch at £8.99 a month, is Google's equivalent of Playstation Plus and Xbox.

For the best experience - 4K HDR at 60fps and with 5.1 sound - you really need a recommended speed of 35Mbps.

Google Inc.'s Stadia is set to enter the gaming arena this November. "Stadia Founder's Edition is the first way to get Stadia in November, and we'll be announcing even more games later this summer".

There will be a "Founder's Edition" of Stadia available for $169 from today. Should Stadia adopt a similar model, it may include "tiers" with different monthly subscription options and/or outright purchase pricing for individual games.

For now, gamers looking to enjoy Stadia in 2019 will have to pay up.

All versions of the Stadia platform will reportedly require connections of at least 10 Mb/s down and 1 Mb/s up to function.

Previous rumours suggested that Google would launch its service with its own Made by Google games console. The Stadia Controller will be available separately for $70 in Clearly White, Just Black, and Wasabi colors.

"That's a shade under $300 [£236] worth of value", said Phil Harrison, the head of Google's Stadia team. Instead, users will be able to purchase the games they want to play as they go at full price.
