Google Shares More Stadia Details On Controller, Multiplayer, VR Support

Google reveals more Stadia details, including answers about multiplayer and VR

Google CEO Sundar Pichai speaks during a Google keynote address announcing a new video gaming streaming service named Stadia that attempts to capitalize on the company's cloud technology and global network of data centers, at the Gaming Developers Conference in San Francisco, California, U.S., March 19, 2019. Talking about the device compatibility, the FAQ clarifies that at the beginning, Stadia will support a limited number of the mobile device which is mostly Google Pixel devices - Pixel 3, Pixel 3XL, Pixel 3a, Pixel 3aXL. (Playing wirelessly on a TV will still require the Stadia Controller.) Google also said "more devices will be made available in the future", though it's not clear if that part of the FAQ is referring specifically to phones and tablets, since Stadia is accessible via Chrome on PC.

Google has reassured gamers that any titles purchased on its forthcoming streamed gaming platform Stadia will not be lost if a publisher decides to leave.

Not that you won't have a way to access Stadia at all.

Amazon is Also Developing a Lord of the Rings MMO
While it sounds similar to the Amazon series, the company stands by its initial comments and states that it is a separate project. Check back here for more breaking news on the new Middle Eart game and Amazon's upcoming Lord of the Rings series.

More specifically, what happens to a game that a Stadia subscriber has already purchased if the publisher pulls the game title from the platform? So if you have any questions that need answering the first place to venture is to the official Google Stadia support forum via the link below.

However, purchasing or managing content can be done with any device running iOS 11 or Android M or higher on both platforms. But VR is not something Google plans to support at the moment. In the future, it is possible that some games may no longer be available for new purchases, but existing players will still be able to play the game. But iPhone users are getting the short end of the stick, it seems (as well as owners of anything other than the aforementioned compatible devices). The Founder's Edition, which includes a special edition Night Blue controller, a Chromecast Ultra, Destiny 2, and two three month subscription - one for you and one for a friend, is available now.

After they receive the code, it can be used on a "different email account". This is pretty convenient. This means that if you want to gift Stadia to anyone you can easily do so.
