Those Division 2 prices are sale prices no? What about the newer titles available?I'm still waiting for them to announce game prices, at the moment you can get The Division 2 on Xbox for less than £20, if Stadia launches with prices above £30 for older releases I think I'll be cancelling my founders edition.
I'm not looking for an excuse to cancel, far from it.The Division 2 (as you’ve seemingly used that as an example) on the PS store is on sale until 23rd October, then it goes back up to £59.99 (which is the current price on the Xbox store).
If at the point of Stadia launching the price is £60 on both PS and Xbox digital stores, I’m not sure why you’re expecting Stadia to immediately come in with prices cheaper if that’s the RRP everywhere else...
Seems like you’re wanting an excuse to cancel, so you might be best off doing so now to save yourself disappointment.
Buy the game for Xbox/PS4 for cheaper then?I'm not looking for an excuse to cancel, far from it.
I just think that people (myself included) won't want to pay £60 for a game they can buy for less than half the price digitally or physically.
I really want Stadia to take off but when the only option you've got to buy a game is from Google and they're charging £60 I think it's going to struggle.
But that sets the precedent going forward. Say they cut every game on the platform 50% on launch as an example. Everyone buys the games, happy days. Then Google raise the prices in line with the other stores - cue mass "ah I'm not buying from Google/Stadia anymore". They honestly can't win.They may undercut prices slightly at launch to try and build up some positivity towards the platform. If Google are gauging general opinion on the Internet towards Stadia correctly they should be trying to encourage people to the platform who are worried that Google will cancel the venture down the road. I don't see that happening for a good few years though.
In slightly related news Google are pulling their Daydream VR product (it's not in the Pixel 4) so I understand why people are nervous about Stadia long term support.
Google will get bored and can it all before they get it working probably. I'll ask what others think on my Google+ accountGoogle's Stadia launches on 19 November in a number of countries but we've just found out that one of its key features will not be ready in time.www.pocket-lint.com
That's a bit disappointing
