That is right – you can get Google Stadia for free! All you have to do is be a YouTube Premium subscriber.
Google has another promotion for the public to “help” cloud gaming get going.
So what will you get if you order it? Well, it comes with one Stadia controller with a Chromecast Ultra.
But wait! The Chromecast you will get won’t be the newest version. It will be an older model that you receive because the newest model won’t support cloud gaming until Q1 or Q2 of 2021.
Unfortunately, if you try to subscribe to YouTube Premium now, you won’t get that promotion offer, but, if you are a subscribed before November 6th, 2020, then the offer will be there for you to redeem.
Also, if you have a G-suite Business aka Google Workspace account (like us) you can’t get that offer either.
So, is it worth it to get it for free? Sure, why not? It’s FREE!
Google Stadia’s first anniversary is in a week – it has come a long way! Is it the best in overall cloud gaming?
We don’t think so, but then again, we can’t get one for free (because we have a G-suite account) to try it for ourselves (even though we got an email promotion about it!!) —- They, also, released some nice features with that platform, like Family Sharing, so, if you have a family member with Stadia like the rest of my family, they can get your library at no additional cost, which is cool.
However, they do have some new titles in the lineup. The new Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is one of them.
We are looking forward to playing that one.
So, if you don’t want a Stadia, at best you can score a newish free Chromecast, and just have another controller just sitting around.
