Google's Big Game to Turn Reality into Reality – Stadia Go Live Somewhere in November . Less than four months ago, to answer the questions and provide more information about the upcoming Google gaming streaming platform, product director Andrei Dorinichev hosted the AMA (Ask Me Anything) at the stadium.
We discussed many of these questions when we interviewed Doronichev in June, but it is convincing to see that many of these things have not changed suddenly. AMA questions ranged from basic things such as how many free games Stadium Pro users will receive for $ 10 per month to "Is there a Hot Dog Sandwich?" So here's all the new information we've been able to get from the new AMA at Stadia .
What's the difference between Stadia Pro and Stadia Base?
About the Free Games theme, Doronic explained that Stadia Pro's subscription is not "Netflix of games," where users will get unlimited access to each service title. Instead, Doronichev describes Stadia Pro as something closest to Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus, which comes with a range of free games, along with features such as 4K / HDR streaming support, 5.1 sounds and subtle discounts.
At launch, the first free game Stadia for Pro users will be with Google says that the pool of free games will grow extraordinarily at about one game per month. This means that after a year there must be about 12 free games for Stadia Pro players. However, if you cancel your subroutine and go back to Stadia's free base layer, you will lose access to these games until you subscribe again.
In the meantime, Stadia Base will run similarly to Steam, where users can buy games on their own and instead of downloading and installing these games on a home computer, Stadia games will just be hosted and then transmitted to a local device. For the base layer, users will be limited to 1080P / 60FPS resolutions and stereo sound.
How about free games like Fornite Warframe etc?  Unfortunately, this is one of the big questions Doronov has not reached, as there are a large number of free games like Fornite that seem to fit Stadia. It is currently unclear whether you will need a Stadia Pro subscription to play free games though I suspect it will not be a requirement. I would not be surprised if free games will be available to both Pro and Base users while Google makes money from these titles by removing the microtransactions purchased through their gaming stores.
What features will be available when placing on the market?
When released in November (which will only be for Stadia Pro subscribers, the free Base level will not be available until somewhere in early 2020). Stadia will include all the core functionality of the service, such as the ability to play on multiple devices without having to install games or fixes manually, embedded social features (party making, managing friends list, using voice chat) and, of course, Stadia's gaming shop. Doronichev said Google is also working on some performance system, although it will not be ready to market.
Google strives to extend the list of Stadia with compatible devices with more phones (initially only Pixel phones will be supported) and will ship boxes like Nvidia Shield. When asked about a potential partnership with Steam, Doronichev will only say that Google always evaluates our capabilities to make Stadia a better place for gamers.
Does Stadia support wireless audio?
This depends on the device you use for Stadia. If you are transmitting Stadia using a Chromecast Ultra connected to a Stadia controller, you will need to use a wired headset. This is because the Stadia controller has a built-in Bluetooth, wireless support will not be available at startup. It is assumed that in the future Google will add support for Bluetooth headsets and headphones.
However, if you are transmitting Stadia to a laptop or phone (which only works via WiFi instead of 4G), you will be able to connect a Bluetooth headset if you wish.
How will the founders of Stadia create?
One of Google's incentives to make people buy in the Stadia founder's edition is the ability to choose your Stadia username before ordinary people. To do this, Stadia will send an email "shortly before". The founder's edition arrives, prompting users to retain a username, with the first emails coming out of the pre-order purchase.
What happens to your games if Stadia is undergoing? Obviously, Google would have preferred if it never happened, and Doronichev said Google was "super committed" to make Stadia a success. But in the case of Staon exclusion, Doronichev said: "The games you buy at Stadia are yours to play," and that Stadia will support Google Takeout so that users can download memory games, metadata, and more.
But it is not clear what will happen to the games themselves and if you can still play them in the cloud if the stadium is closed.
So, a hot dog sandwich?
While I do not agree with this, Doronichev said that "Hot Dog is definitely not a sandwich … that's a lot more" before he opposes a question from him:
So that's almost everything for now , but stay tuned for another Stadia Connect while Doronichev said the next Connect will happen "Early Than You Think …"
