You know it’s E3 time when everyone has something to say about the future of gaming. This time around it’s Google with more on Stadia, their upcoming streaming solution.
Clocking in at under thirty minutes it also revealed that Baldur’s Gate III will be on the platform (also available on PC), a new trailer for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, The Division 2 coming to Stadia, pricing (US$9.99) and details of Destiny 2 and its upcoming expansion being bundled into a “Founders Edition” package.
Network requirements are pretty high if you want 4K streaming but it scales down to more manageable levels. If you’re in a gaming family though I’m thinking everyone will be fighting for that bandwidth and there’s going to be a lot of losers in that scrap. And with Australia not being part of the initial rollout there’s little incentive for me to try it until Stadia expands to the Oceania region.
Still… Google are putting on a good show at the moment. They just have to deliver on it too.
