Stadia, Google’s new cloud gaming platform, will be available next November. The only subscription model available at the moment will be Stadia Pro, but even with that, it seems that the main business of the platform will be the sale of individual games. And, as confirmed by Phil Harrison (president of Stadia) at a recent press conference, these games will have the same price in other platforms: “I do not see why they should be cheaper”. explains the executive to Eurogamer.
“In theory, Stadia’s version of a game is going to have the best quality of innovation and sophistication in terms of the game engine,” Harrison defends. It does not seem that aspects such as latency will affect the price of games at all. Clarified this, it seems that Google will not impose prices on those who choose the game publishers themselves.
” The publisher or developer has as much control over prices as we do, so I find it a bit difficult to determine the prices that the games will have at this moment. But logically, we will be very attentive to the prices that prevail in the market ” If you have an interest in the platform catalog, check out the first games available in Stadia.
