The streaming service will release in select territories with a Pro subscription tier that will cost players £8.99 a month, coming with a select library of titles on release which will include Destiny 2.
8220;I don8217;t know why it would be cheaper,8221; Harrison said. 8220;The value you get from the game on Stadia means you can play it on any screen in your life 8211; TV, PC, laptop, tablet, phone. 8220;I think that is going to be valuable to players.8221;
Regarding the price of individual games, Harrison said that this decision will likely be up to individual publishers to decide: 8220;The publisher or the developer is in as much control of the prices as we are, so it8217;s a bit difficult for me to say what the prices will be right now,8221; he said. 8220;But, we8217;re obviously going to be very aware of prevailing prices in the marketplace.8221;
8220;The industry is in transition,8221; Harrison explained. 8220;Not every developer and publisher is ready to move to subscription yet. Frankly, not every gamer is ready to move to subscription yet. So we wanted to give gamers a choice so they could engage in the games they wanted in the way they wanted 8211; and in all cases, without the very high upfront cost of buying a sophisticated device to put under their TV or on their desk.8221;
So, if you want to play major upcoming titles such as DOOM Eternal or Watch Dogs Legion on Stadia, you’ll likely be paying a similar price to existing platforms. Google Stadia will launch this November with a Founder8217;s Edition costing £119. It will include a Stadia controller, Chromecast Ultra and three months of the Pro subscription. We went hands-on at E3 2019, and came away with some concerns:
8220;Google Stadia still has so much untapped potential, and I feel it’s still too early in the world of on-demand streaming for it to really capitalise on a huge audience. I’m willing to be proven wrong later this year, but seeing DOOM Eternal falter under optimal conditions has left me doubtful.8221;
