Purchased Stadia Games Are Playable After Publisher Pulls Support

Google reveals more Stadia details, including answers about multiplayer and VR

To enjoy the streaming service Google recommends an internet speed of at least 10 mbps for a 720p experience on Stadia, while faster connections will enable you to enjoy 4K resolutions. Having access to movies, music, and games purchased in digital form rely on a number of factors, and there are plenty of examples where things have gone sideways. For example, if Microsoft strikes a deal with a game publisher, leading to the publisher pulling the game from Stadia, you'd still be able to play the game on Stadia.

Game streaming services stand as an unproven model of both distribution and economics. You can also connect your Stadia Controller to your phone, tablet, or computer with a USB cable plugged into the Stadia Controller's USB-C port. "Outside of unexpected circumstances", the FAQ states, "Stadia will aim to maintain any previously bought title out there for gameplay".

Take note that Stadia will exclusively help mobile gameplay on a restricted variety of gadgets at launch, although, namely the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a (3a, 3a XL, 3, 3XL) phones, as well as tablets running Chrome OS.

There is still so much to know and say about the Stadia but we'll have to be patient. Users, however, will be able to purchase and manage content from any device running iOS 11 (or higher) or Android M (or higher).

Elsewhere, Google said Stadia would support full multiplayer titles, including couch-based co-op games, with up to four Stadia controllers able to be used in local multiplayer. As of now, there is no information when Stadia will get iOS support, but Google has assured that "more devices will be made available in the future".

The new FAQ said that playing Stadia games via USB won't require the dedicated controller; any USB HID controller should work.

The Stadia Controller uses BLE for setup and then connects via Wi-Fi for gameplay.

Google Stadia aims to revolutionize gaming by making it available to nearly everyone who has a device capable of browsing the Internet.

There is one category of device Google's not interested in supporting with Stadia: VR.
