  • Google Stadia Can Use Over 15GB Of Data Per Hour

Google is leading the way in the nascent business of streaming games through the internet, announcing pricing and a raft of new titles for its Stadia service ahead of its competitors. On Thursday, Google said it will start advance sales for the limited "Founder's Edition" bundles right away, though it isn't saying how many are available. But how exactly will Google be offering Stadia Basic for free? Oh and if you happened to play Destiny 2 on Xbox One or PC your data could be transferred over thanks to crossplay functionality, don't worry PS4 owners its definitely in the works for us as well, Google has stated as much but has not made an announcement yet.

On the surface, Stadia looks to be a pretty cool service for gaming but monthly data caps could end up preventing some users from enjoying it fully. Players can also use Google's Pixel phones, but not other phones with the company's Android operating system.

Sony launched its PlayStation Now game service five years ago, allowing titles to be streamed to its current-generation consoles or Windows-powered computers.

Google's upcoming streaming platform was noticeably absent from E3 this year, bringing many to ask where was Google Stadia at E3 2019? In both these services, subscribers will get a discount while buying games.

And the Stadia Basic, which will be available sometime next year, will be completely free. Besides, Shadow also claims that you can run the display of the game simultaneously on two or more devices.

The initial 30 games available on Stadia at launch include "Baldur's Gate 3", "Doom Eternal", "Mortal Kombat 11" and "Assassin's Creed: Odyssey".

Stadia Founder's Edition was also officially made available for pre-order.

In Stadia Base, the game title streaming will be capped at 1080p and stereo sound. Google says the whole package is worth about $300 but costs $130.

Stadia, which the Alphabet unit unveiled in March, will launch in November with titles from major game developers including Ubisoft Entertainment and Bungie. While the "Base" version is free, you would have to pay $9.99 per month for Stadia Pro. Graphical resolution goes up to 4k and audio to 5.1 Surround Sound at 35 Mb/s or more of internet bandwidth.

Stadia games can be played with any supported game controller or via mouse and keyboard.

The Wi-Fi-enabled controller has a button that lets players tap Google Assistant to ask questions about the games being played. And later, if someone missed the event can check the video on YouTube or from the downlink.

As console-quality video games head into the internet cloud, contenders are stepping up to win fans with Netflix-style on-demand services for play. Players won't have to download or install anything.

Hosting blockbuster titles at datacenters and letting people play them on an array of Internet-linked devices will allow game makers to add rich new features and broaden their audiences in what is already a $135 billion (about P7 trillion) global video game industry. This will offer free games and exclusive contents which would cost around 10 United States dollars per month.

"There are now more than 1,900 games in development for Xbox One, all of which could run on Project xCloud along with games already released", according to Microsoft.

There is a numerous number of exclusive games that can be availed on Stadia.
