TEKNOKU.me – Google Stadia officially launched today, November 19. Stadia provides streaming game services via the cloud.
Dubbed the “Netflix for video games”, Stadia users can play games via a mobile, web browser, or via Chromecast in real-time streaming over an internet connection, without the need for game consoles such as PS4 or Xbox.
“Stadia Founder’s Edition is coming today, the world’s best games are available for gamers everywhere, they don’t have to have expensive consoles or PCs,” Google wrote in a blog post announcing.
As mentioned by Google, the Stadia game streaming service, for the time being, can only be enjoyed by those who had pre-ordered “Founder’s Edition” last June, at a cost of 130 USD.
Those who register pre-orders get the Stadia “Founder’s Edition” package in the form of a Chromecast dongle, three months of use, and a free pass so friends can come along to play.
In addition, users who register early can not only experience the experience of being one of the first to play Stadia, can also order a unique username.

In addition to Google with Stadia, Microsoft is also developing a similar service called xCloud.
The service was introduced in 201 and tested in October 2019. Now the preview version of xCloud has been released by Microsoft to a limited number of Xbox users.
Games that can be played on xCloud now, for users of the preview version, include Gears 5, Halo 5: Guardians, Killer Instinct, and Sea of Thieves.
With xCloud, the game is not run on a console, but a Microsoft server, and then distributed to Xbox live streaming. Players can still control the game with the controller as usual.
