Google has indicated that games are likely to cost the same on its Google Stadia platform as on other consoles.

During a roundtable interview with British games press, Google Stadia chief Phil Harrison told Eurogamer that games are likely to cost the same on Stadia as on platforms such as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

“I don’t know why it would be cheaper,” said Harrison.

Stadia Pro will require players to pay a monthly subscription fee to play games on the service, in addition to paying full price for the games when they become available.

However, Harrison commented that the value of Stadia comes from the availability of play: “The value you get from the game on Stadia means you can play it on any screen in your life: TV, PC, laptop, tablet, phone.”

Harrison added that the individual game publishers will decide on the final prices of titles on the platform alongside Google.

Google Stadia is a cloud-based service that is said to be able to run games in 4K at 60 frames per second. Google unveiled the platform at the Game Developers Conference in March, and has since revealed myriad games that will be available on the service, including Marvel’s AvengersGhost Recon Breakpoint, and Gods & Monsters, among many others.

OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira felt that consumers should be cautiously optimistic towards Google Stadia.

His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.
