Forums - Gaming Discussion - You need your phone to buy games for Stadia, more bad news etc

I don't wanna copy another persons findings but I got this from a user at resetera ,I dont know how to copy twitter so i'll copy and paste reseter said

- The achievements system won't have a UI at launch, but it will still capture achievement so you can see them when a UI is available.
- Only the Founder's Edition Chromecast Ultra will support Stadia on launch day. Existing Chromecasts won't
- Family Sharing is not available at launch. Recommended to just buy a second version of a $60 game on your account for a kid or other family member to play with, and then eventually be able to share it
- Stadia on iOS will arrive eventually
- Apparently, you need your phone to buy games for Stadia, implying that there's no web UI currently
- Stadia Buddy Pass will not be available to Founders at launch

from me: Microsoft didn't abandon xbox when it lost billions on both xbox 2001 and xbox 360, but since this is google if they see this failing might cancel stadia since they have a history of cancelling anything quick , other than that this is a big yikes .

I thought Stadia was subscription based. You have to buy games individually?



It's not a problem if you don't use Stadia.

Yes you pay full price to add a game to your "digital library" with the right to stream.

The problem is that unlike physical games, or even digital download titles that you have stored on your device, once the licensing for the games runs out and google can no longer keep the game available you are SOL.  Also if stadia flops, say goodbye to your 60 dollar games.

Welcome to the future of cloud gaming!

I've only been passively following Stadia, but..yes? It's not "the Netfilx of gaming." There are perks with the Founder's edition, but I can't recall to what degree it may, or may not, mitigate the "have to buy games individually" situation. There are monthly free games with a sub at least. Like PSN and XBL. In Googling the Google Stadia Founder's Edition, to verify what The Founder's edition offered, I was met with an ad site, and then only unrelated flotsam. Like this #6 result:

D'oh! I guess they ran out of limited edition Limited-edition Night Blue Stadia controllers. Stadia Founder's Edition has sold out in Canada. Just like it was supposed to. D'oh!

People still confused of how Stadia works.

Free mode: no subscription required, run games on 1080P/60 frames. This base mode will launch in 2020.

Pro mode: 10 bucks a month, run games on 4K/60 frames. Subscribers will also get discounts and free games from times to times.



Pretty sure the poster above me works for Google. Or owns a ton of stock in the company.

No some people still pretend the free mode doesn't est exist and the pro mode won't offer free games and discounts to subscribers.

This thread isn't about that though. It's about needing to use your phone to buy the games, and other issues such as no achievements at launch. Do you have a rebuttal to the OP? Or will you just copy/paste irrelevant marketing bullet points over and over again?

Subscription is what allows 4k I believe but everything must be bought, i think
