While the gaming platform will begin shipping November 14, interested consumers can pre-order the Stadia Founder’s Edition at the Google Store, a limited number of which are available.
‘So, if you want to be one of ‘founders,’ be sure to get it before it’s gone. The Founder’s Edition packs nearly $300 of value into just $129.99 and includes a chromecast ultra, a limited-edition night blue stadia controller, three months of stadia pro (more on that below), a three-month buddy pass to bring one friend along for the ride, dibs on selecting a stadia name, stadia founder's edition,’ Google said in a statement.
With the Founder’s edition, users will get Stadia Pro and the ability to play their favourite games across multiple screens (for those of you with a 4K TV and Stadia Pro, you'll get up to 4K HDR resolution at 60 frames per second with 5.1 surround sound).
Stadia Pro will also include free content, as well as discounts on titles you purchase. The first free title is ‘Destiny 2,’ and it comes with the base game, all previous add-ons, the upcoming Shadowkeep expansion and the annual pass. And after your free 3-month subscription ends, Stadia Pro is only $9.99 per month.
Google is also offering extra controllers in three colours—Just Black, Clearly White or Wasabi—for $69.99. And if you don’t need 4K quality resolution, you can still play your favourite games on virtually any screen with instant access and no downloads, updates, or patches.
