Now Playing: Google Stadia Launch Date, Pricing, And More Announced - GS News Update

The Stadia game streaming service is nearly upon us, as Google announced during a pre-E3 2019 presentation. Early adopters will be able to start gaming on the go in November 2019 with the Founder's Edition, which is available for pre-order right now, directly from Google. Everyone else will have to wait until the Base version launches in 2020.

When the full service launches in 2020, people will be able to buy a Stadia controller (for $69) and then purchase games a la carte to stream from anywhere without any additional fees. For full access to Stadia, however, including streaming at 4K, access to an extensive library of games, and discounts on purchasing them, players will need to pay $10 per month for a Stadia Pro subscription.

For now, however, the only option available is through the Founder's Edition, which includes both the controller and three-month Pro subscriptions for both you and a friend.

Pre-order Stadia Founder's Edition

The Stadia Founder's Edition includes:

  • A limited-edition night blue controller
  • A Chromecast Ultra
  • A three-month subscription to the Stadia Pro service
  • First dibs on your Stadia Name
  • A three-month Buddy Pass to Stadia Pro for a friend

You can pre-order it for November 2019 exclusively from Google:

Get it at Google -- $130
