Google Stadia: availability, price
Google Stadia is currently available in 22 countries including the United States, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Austria, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Portugal and Romania, Slovakia and Switzerland. The service is not available in India at the moment, and no tentative launch date is provided for the same.
Stadia is currently available in two tiers: free and pro. The free tier includes game streaming at 1080p resolution, 60 fps, and stereo sound. The Pro level is priced at $ 10 (around Rs 720) per month, which provides users with game streaming capabilities at 4K resolution with HDR quality, 60 fps, and 5.1 surround sound.
You can also buy the Stadia controller separately for $ 70 (around Rs 5,030). However, it is not necessary to play Stadia games. But it does improve the gaming experience because it connects directly to the servers rather than being routed through the primary device used to stream the game.
