Google reveals cloud gaming service Stadia's official details, price

Google has now not only officially announced Stadia, a cloud gaming platform, but also given us the appropriate information to consider getting one.
We also got a glimpse of the details thanks to our Canadian friend leaking some details, but no we have the full story in black and white.

Stadia will indeed provide games at up to 4K resolution and 60 frames per second with both HDR an 5.1 sound support. To access all that among the first you'll have to acquire the Founder's Edition of Stadia as it lands in November, which will cost you an initial $129.

That gives you the Stadia controller, Chromecast Ultra as well as three months of subscription to Stadia Pro. Further subscription costs $9.99/mo.

Stadia Pro also offers occasionally free games, starting with Destiny 2: The Collection, as well as discounts on others. There also will be a free Stadia available next year with Full HD (1080p) games at 60fps and stereo sound without HDR support. The free tier won't include free games or discounts.
