The subscription model and F2P model sounds really interesting.
1. Anyone would be able to use Stadia Base for free when they launch it in 2020. Stream up to 1080p/60FPS. Only caveat is that you have to buy the games off their store. But you basically can use their service for free.
2. Stadia Pro is their $9.99/month subscription model which is launching in November 2019. Up to 4K/60FPS, you get free games gradually like how Xbox game pass and PlayStation membership works. But of course, you still have to buy games off their store to play any actual games. You also get certain subscriber benefits like discounts.
3. Even if you do unsubscribe, you still get to keep all your games and you can still play them with Stadia Base because the service is ultimately free! That’s a game changer.
What do you guys think? I am actually pretty hyped about this. And the launch titles are insane, Baldurs Gate 3 by Larian Studos, new and existing Ubisoft title like AC Odyssey and Ghost Recon Breakpoin, upcoming Bethesda’s titles like Doom Eternal and Wolfenstein Young Blood, many more Indies etc. You can play games with mouse/keyboard, any controller you want as well.
Edit: I didn’t know US had data caps for home internet services. I live in Singapore and home internet usage is unlimited by default. Which is why I thought it would be incredible for some Asia countries where home usage is unlimited.
