Google Stadia was first announced to the general public back in June during the E3 2019. At the same event, Google’s Chief Executive, Sundar Pichai mentioned Stadia terming it as “a game platform for everyone.” With Stadia all set to step into the world of cloud gaming in November 2019, Google will be the first big company to launch next-gen consoles, with Microsoft Project Scarlett and Sony’s PlayStation 5 lined up for launch next year. However, we still have time until the service launches as new leaks don’t seem to stop anytime soon before the launch but before the launch, Google has already sold out the premium pre-order bundle for Google Stadia, called the Founder’s Edition in Europe.
Google director for games Jack Buser told Gamesradar in an interview, “I’m super proud to tell you that the Founders Edition for Stadia has sold out in Europe. We’ll be removing the Founders Edition from the Google Store page in EU countries today, but we’re going to replace it with a new bundle that we are calling the Premier Edition.”
However, Google will now be selling The Premiere Edition in Europe which includes a Clearly White Stadia controller, a Chromecast Ultra, three months of Stadia Pro and the full Destiny 2 collection for the same price of 129 euros ($142). Even though Google was ready with a contingency plan to replace the Founder’s Edition with Premier Edition, once the former sold out, but Premier is missing a few major offerings Founder’s had. Premier won’t include the Buddy Pass or the ability to secure a username, and the controller that comes with it is Clearly White rather than Night Blue. The Premier Edition will start shipping after the Founder’s Edition in November, however, no specific date for either has been announced yet.
