Still a bit confused about the pricing model, plans, what happens to games that are bought, etc. Hmm.
The only real pricing model is 1080p is free, 4K is Pro and $10 a month including some free games. Otherwise you buy the games just like you would on any digital service.

I see. Simpler than I thought - so essentially the Pro plan is to get 4K and HDR (and the occasional free game of dubious value - probably) :-k

If you're going to stream Cyberpunk 2077, GeForce NOW looks the most attractive option tbh:

The lack of RT on Stadia is the major downer IMHO (at least for this specific game).

Sigh, getting hard to keep track of all services..!

GeForce NOW looks like a more attractive offer (I like that you can play already owned games), but has even worse worldwide availability than Stadia :o :roll:

For Stadia I guess I'll just check out theTrial, and see how it goes. But I'd rather not have yet another game library - especially considering Google's amazing track record of keeping products alive for a long time =;

I hear ya but when they just announced they've got 400 more games coming in the next couple years from 200 devs I'm not really worried.

Though personally I'd sooner use xCloud once they're rendering from XSX boxes instead of X1S, that might be a while yet.

Actually seems to be available everywhere, despite not having country-specific page for all locations. I shall investigate :-s

Still love Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and it includes the EA Play sub now with no extra charge. I'd say none of my other subs have ever done this much for me (except maybe back when Netflix was the only video sub that mattered.)

Game Pass makes sense the same way PS+ does, it gives you a game library on the cheap. What doesn't is a subscription for every studio. MS and Sony own several studios and have games from other studios as well.
