Google Stadia announced prices of their subscription plan starting from $9 for a pro service per month and $130 as a one-time payment fee for Founders Edition Stadia Subscription.
Google will launch Google Stadia, together with 14 other regions in the U.S., UK, and Canada in November. In the initial titles, 31 games from 21 various publishers will appear. In November 2019, the cloud-based gaming service from Google comes.
The pricing model of Google Stadia
The price of Google Stadia is based on streaming quality and the games library. Google Stadia Gaming Service has three methods of paying and they are:
Free subscription to Google Stadia
This subscription is expected in 2020. Users can purchase each game separately and play it using Google Cloud pcs in the “Free Tier” subscription at Google Stadia. Thus, no physical console is necessary, you can just purchase a game and play it digitally at Google Stadia. Subscription Free Tier will make it possible for players to play games with 1080P to 60fps, but 10Mb / s web is necessary. The game cost is still to be declared.
Founder Edition and the Pro:
Google Stadia Founders Edition has a $130 cost and includes an ultra Chromecast and an official $70 Stadia controller with three colors: Blue, Just Black, and Wasabi. This will prevent users from connecting the machine every moment before playing via WiFi straight to Google Server. The Founders edition will allow users to play Destiny 2 on HDR with 5.1 surrounds sound free of charge at 4k/60fps, subject to a bandwidth of 35Mb/s. The three-month edition of Stadia Pro Teir Service, which up to three friends can share, will be included in the Stadia Founders Edition.
It implies that you’ll have access to all Destiny 2 and all of its add-ons for 4k/60fps and for up to 3 of your colleagues you can access the Stadia Pro if you purchase a Google Stadia Founders Edition Subscription. You can also play games in the same resolution and frame rate, but you won’t have free access to all free Destiny 2. In addition, they won’t have a dib on their first username. You can use Chromecast or Pixel 3/3a Smartphones to access Google Stadia. Other smartphones will be supported by 2020.
Initially Stadia Pro is only accessible with the Founder’s edition, but it will later become a self-subscription game subscription service to $9 per month for Google Stadia. The library will include a rotating free games library and several future titles for discounts.

For Destiny 2, players can pick up their gameplay on the correct side of their Xbox or PC. Also, Sony PlayStation will quickly receive the same assistance.
The Games at Google Stadia are not restricted by hardware, so designers can accommodate a large number of players in a globe that lives and breathes according to Buser. This may also imply that the Google Stadia price can increase with the scale of the servers.
How Will Google Stadia Operate On Apple Devices
The Google Stadia Project Manager Andrey Doronichev told us they want Google Stadia to be “everywhere.” He replied: “What will the stadia do in Apple?” He who already has an Apple Arcade in the pipeline gaming service.
Google Stadia’s access to pixel 3/3a and Chromecast devices will be restricted initially. Here, the $130 Google Stadia price feels like a steal since consumers are getting a Chromecast, which can also be used to stream films, provided that it is not used for gaming.
Google Stadia is just the Netflix for games that were expected by people to play, but it is true in its title “The future of gaming is not a box.” Microsoft has announced a number of Xbox games recently for its cloud gaming subscription, and even Sony has patented the upcoming streaming console.
Needless to tell, a physical box will be the last generation of Gaming consoles.
