Google Stadia Will Get Launch Info, Price Reveal and More Games in First Connect This Week

Soon we'll know what the streaming future will cost on a store shelf.

It's E3 season, but Google is getting out ahead of the news with its first Stadia Connect this week. Boasting launch information, a price tag reveal, and more game announcements, Google will give us more concrete details on the Stadia on June 6.

Broadcasting on YouTube at 9 a.m. PDT, the Connect will be a video presentation highlighting what's to come for Google Stadia. Hyped as the "future of gaming," the Stadia is a streaming-focused box set to break Google into the console hardware market.

This will be our first look at what the cost of Stadia will be, as well as when we could see it on store shelves. Getting it out ahead of E3 is interesting, but plausibly allows for companies to drop the Stadia name in their own press conferences over the coming weekend. Id Software has already confirmed it's bringing Doom Eternal to the Stadia, and Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Odyssey was the testing ground for Stadia's concept, Project Stream. An early announce paves the way for more, and for Google to get out ahead of any other major hardware announcements coming this year.

We're still waiting to see what kind of stability a streaming platform like Stadia will offer, as our look at Doom Eternal was mostly smooth with a few brief hitches. As more games come to Stadia, it'll be interesting to see how many are able to match the fidelity of their console counterparts. Keep up to date with all we know about the Stadia in our Google Stadia guide.
