One of the things that haven’t been talked about at the presentation of Google Stadia is the pricing model that the platform will be getting when it launches later this year.
Stadia is releasing in 2019, but we still don’t know how we’ll get access to the games that will be supporting it.
With a streaming platform like this, you would imagine a subscription based model, where you pay a monthly fee to receive access to all the titles, even at a few different tiers like Netflix or EA Access.
Anyway, like with PlayStation Now, there’s a chance we’ll get the opportunity to also download those titles, perhaps at an additional price on an individual basis.
Anyway, while this is just speculation, Google Stadia’s Phil Harrison has discussed the matter in an interview with Kotaku.
Harrison said that the details about pricing will be shared this summer, even though he refused to comment whether Google will be at E3 2019 or not.
“I’m not going to talk about it today… We will talk in great detail about that in the summer,” he said. When asked if the announcement would be coming at E3, he just repeated “in the summer.”
There’s a chance the company is still working on the details, both of the pricing and the announcement, and even that we’ll get to learn about that in the E3 days but not at E3 specifically.
