Google Stadia console is set to launch in November 19th and this could change how we play games forever. This has to be the biggest leap in gaming since the Xbox live that changed online gaming forever.
Google Stadia is a game steaming console that will enable its users to play their favorite games anywhere that please. At the moment confirmed launch titles are its weak point. There are not enough titles available right now that will make gamer’s pay for this service.
Some important details about Stadia:
Available at: At its demo during GDC, Google showed Stadia working on a Pixelbook, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel Slate, and on a TV using a Chromecast Ultra. At launch, Stadia will allow you to stream games in up to 4K quality and 60 frames-per-second. In the future, Google says that it’ll allow for streaming in 8K at 120 frames-per-second. Google says that you will need at least 25 mbps internet connection or higher if you want a stable experience.
Google said the Stadia service will cost $9.99 per month. That’s less than Netflix’s standard $12.99 monthly subscription and just $1 more than its basic service. For $129.99, you can get a Chromecast, controller and three months of the Stadia service. The controller alone will cost $69.
Google Stadia is the future of gaming there is no doubt about that. At the moment there are still a lot of issues that Google must solve if they want to see Stadia succeed in the long run. Entry cost is still a big concern. Number of launch title is too weak right now. There is some input delay but Google says that they will be able to make vast improvement on that side. Google will need to make some huge improvement if they want Stadia to become the next big thing in gaming. Google is one of the few companies in the world that can make it happen.
