Google Stadia will allow publishers to add subscriptions

Add publisher-specific subscriptions on top of that and some may start to feel as though they are being nickel and dimed to death. The answer appears to be yes.

Since the E3 Gaming Expo has kicked off this weekend, Stadia is now relevant more than ever as other game platforms and publisher announce their upcoming games and the future of gaming hardware.

The $9.99-per-month Stadia Pro subscription doesn't allow you access to all Stadia Games, so a publisher-specific subscription could be a good way to play a variety of your favorite games without purchasing them individually. Harrison also suggested that this model will work best for publishers with larger catalogues. This particular situation could be "regularized" by publishers through additional subscription services that allow access to the various catalogs and apparently, this is a project already in the process of consolidation, with various companies that are drawing up their own offer plan for the next launch of Google Stadia.

Philip retired from his royal duties on 2 August 2017, at the age of 96, having completed 22,219 solo engagements since 1952. He was born on June 10, 1921 in Greece, to parents Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark and Princess Alice of Battenberg.

"You'll see publishers starting to think about their own subscription as well", Google Stadia head Phil Harrison told Geoff Keighley on YouTube's E3 Live Sunday. Google recommends at least 10Mbps down in order to stream at 720p @ 60fps + stereo, 20Mbps to stream HDR 1080p @ 60fps + 5.1 surround, and at least 30-something Mbps to stream HDR 4K @ 60fps + 5.1 surround.

Perhaps we should all pay attention to Ubisoft's show later today. You'll also want to return to our E3 2019 hub for any important announcements you might have missed throughout E3, as well as to read out hands-on impressions on some of the hottest games coming out this year. We won't be entirely sold on Stadia's premise - that it plays just like a native console or PC experience - until we get our hands on it.
