Google Stadia has announced that once the Limited Founder’s Edition of the console sells out, they’ll be releasing the Premiere Edition as people continue to pre-order the new streaming platform.
The console has sold out of the Limited Founder’s Edition in Europe, so Google will be rolling out the Premiere Editions for pre-order shortly. The Premiere Edition includes the standard white Google Stadia controller rather than the Night Blue controller included with the Limited Founder’s Edition.
Director for Games at Google, Jack Buser had this to say about the news: “I’m super proud to tell you that the Founders Edition for Stadia has sold out in Europe. We’ll be removing the Founders Edition from the Google Store page in EU countries today, but we’re going to replace it with a bundle that we are calling the Premiere Edition.” This suggests that the bundle will be the same price as the Founder’s Edition as the Premiere Bundle replaces the listing.
“We’re up to 40 games now that have been announced for the platform, with over 28 partners, which is amazing” he continued to add.
Currently, the Founders Edition is the only way to get both the Night Blue controller as well as the only way to actually secure the online service. A Stadia Pro subscription beyond the three-month trial will cost around £8/$10 per month, and this will give gamers access to over 40 games that will stream in 4K quality on the Pro service while the free Stadia Base will only give gamers access to the shop and a resolution cap of 1080p.
