Google has finally revealed the launch date, pricing and launch games for Stadia.

Google Stadia Pro will be made available this November and will cost $9.99 per month. Importantly, the article notes that all purchased games will remain accessible once the Stadia Pro subscription included in the Google Stadia Founder's Edition ends.

To access Stadia at launch, you'll need to get Stadia Pro: a $10 per month subscription that gives you access to a select library of games, Stadia's highest streaming quality (up to 4K at 60fps), and discounts on games that exist outside of the monthly plan.

Presale for the Founders Edition is underway now.

November of this year, Stadia will be available but it appears that will be only for the paid platform with the free service launching sometime next year. Those users will only see resolutions of up to 1080p. An optional Stadia controller will sell for $69.

The presentation will feature the reveal of the Stadia platform's pricing, games, and launch details. The American tech giant's take on the future of video games will arrive simultaneously in 14 countries, including Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and 11 other European nations.

Are you excited for Stadia? It's a new way for people to play, so that should at least be interesting to watch. However, games will still run from a recommended, absolute minimum speed of 10Mbps.

Even with Stadia's Pro plan, which costs $10 a month, you're still going to have to buy numerous new games you want à la carte.

Google Stadia has been one of the most exciting things to happen in the gaming industry this year. We're also hoping it will work on Apple iOS devices at some point, but are yet to receive confirmation.

The big question on many gamers' minds remains how well Google's game streaming technology will work. Up until today, very little was known about the actual details of the service. And Apple and Amazon are whispered to be looking at the space as well. On the subject of subscriptions, this is where the Netflix comparisons come in to play.
