We still don’t know what Google means by “this summer.” E3 2019 officially starts June 11, so perhaps Google might make an appearance at the yearly trade event. Alternatively, the company might hold a separate presentation at a date of its choosing.
We also don’t know what sort of pricing scheme Google will go with for Stadia. While the trend seems to be to go for subscription tiers, there’s also a possibility that Google will charge people for a set amount of time with each game.
Also up for consideration is the price of the Stadia controller. For reference, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers cost between $59.99 and $69.99, depending on the color. Meanwhile, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller normally costs $69.99.
Finally, games will arguably make or break Stadia’s case as a game streaming platform. Stadia already has the support of Bethesda and Ubisoft, two big developers that could announce additional titles for the platform.
