Google Stadia to support Pixel 3 series, multiplayer gaming

Google Stadia FAQ updated with details about device and controller support Founder’s edition fulfillment

Finally, Google clarified that you will keep any games you purchase on Stadia, even if the publisher later pulls them from sale.

In addition to clearing things up on purchased games Google mentions that support for virtual reality is not now in the works, but it specifically says that it has "no news to share regarding VR" which leaves things open-ended, meaning there could be support for VR on Stadia at some point in the future development of the platform.

- Games purchased in the Stadia are available in all countries where the Platform is available, regardless of where they were purchased, but not in a country where the Stadia is not yet available.

A Stadia Pro subscription will cost $9.99 Dollars / $11.99 CAD / £8.99, and includes streaming up to 4K and access to a growing catalogue of "older" games starting with Destiny 2 and expanding from there, but you'll need to purchase the latest games outright if you want to play them on day one.

For those looking to utilize their Chromecast devices, the Founder's Edition is confirmed to be compatible with Chromecast Ultra, though the official Stadia controller will be required. A special redemption code will then be sent to the email account provided.

Detailing about the multiplayer gaming, the FAQ page says the number of gamers will depend on the game. It will be interesting to see how this service evolves beyond launch, but for now - we have devices and we have the full list of games that will be available on day one.

"What happens to a game I bought if the publisher stops supporting Stadia in the future?"

The search giant adds that the Stadia Controller uses Bluetooth Low Energy for the initial setup and then connects via Wi-Fi for gaming.

Those of you who are planning to buy a Pixel 4 device shouldn't worry too much, as Google will surely offer Stadia for you as soon as their new smartphone models will hit the market. These are the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a (3a, 3a XL, 3, 3XL) phones, as well as tablets running Chrome OS.

However, purchasing or managing content can be done with any device running iOS 11 or Android M or higher on both platforms. The company categorically said that it has no immediate plans to support VR gameplay on Stadia.
