You Will Have to Pay Full Price for Stadia Games

Google Stadia games will cost the same as full-price console titles (even if they're only streamed)

Google Stadia games will cost the same as full-price console titles (even if they're only streamed)

Anyone expecting games to be cheaper via Google Stadia, the upcoming streaming platform, was sorely mistaken. The company will let you stream games to your phone, tablet, Chromecast Ultra, PC, and via the Chrome browser. He said that games on Stadia will cost the same as they do on other consoles like the PlayStation, or Xbox. "I think that is going to be valuable to players".

But Harrison also acknowledged that in the end, purchase prices on Stadia will be up to individual developers and publishers, just as they are on other storefronts, "so it's a bit hard for me to say what the prices will be right now", he said.

Phil Harrison, vice president and general manager of Google, was recently asked how data caps could affect Stadia gamers.

Google Stadia will launch in November 2019, with Stadia Pro subscriptions costing $9.99 / £8.99 (about AU$14) a month, and requiring a 35Mbps internet connection to hit those full 4K HDR/60fps highs.

The New Apple Mac Pro Will Be Made In China
The development comes just as Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are expected to meet Saturday for the G20 Summit in Japan. Apple has shifted the manufacturing of its Mac Pro computer from the U.S.to China, a Friday report stated.

Harrison says the ability to play Stadia games on any screen justified the price.

"The publisher or the developer is in as much control of the prices as we are, so it's a bit hard for me to say what the prices will be right now", he said, adding that they will be "very aware of prevailing prices in the marketplace". Will Stadia grow into a Netflix for games where you don't have to pay anything for the latest releases?

Google's Stadia head adds that offering both an all-you-can-eat subscription model and individual game purchases was about offering a choice to consumers. "Now, there may be - as we've seen in the past - there may be times where a developer or publisher no longer has the rights to sell to new players. Frankly, not every gamer is ready to move to subscription yet", Harrison said. It was mentioned by many developers and publishers at E3 and its catalog of games grows every week. Things with Stadia will be the same, at least initially. They will not be cheaper.

It wouldn't then, I continued, be another P.T. situation - wherein the game could just disappear off of the face of the planet?
