Google this morning started shipping Stadia Founder & # 39; s Edition. Since the game streaming service does not start until 9am tomorrow, Stadia Codes will not be emailed until tomorrow.
Those who ordered during the Stadia Connect live stream on June 6 are beginning to receive the email "Your Google Store Order has shipped." It will include final delivery guidelines and the ability to “track the shipment” by the carrier. Google began charging payment methods over the weekend, while others encountered some issues with this step.
Strangely, the first shipping reports are from buyers who bought in July and September. Just this morning, there are no reports of Canadian or European customers receiving their units yet.
Update 11/19: After the 9am launch, Google will send emails "It's time to join Stadia!" With the invitation code. Signing up will allow you to "claim the desired Stadia name".
Players scheduled to receive the Founder's Edition on Tuesday will receive their Stadia Code to activate the service after the 9am launch. All others will receive the 16-digit invitation shortly after the request has been submitted. Once you receive the code, enter it into the Stadia app for Android or iOS and claim your Stadia name.
The three-month Stadia Pro included in the package lets you play in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. This is the highest quality offered by Google, while next year's free Stadia Base is limited to 1080p.
Both editions come with a Stadia controller that includes a USB-C to USB-A cable and power adapter in addition to the Chromecast Ultra. The streaming dongle that connects to your TV has a plug with integrated Ethernet port.
The Founder's Controller is a limited edition Night Blue, while Premiere is Clearly White, although both have Stadia's orange accent under the thumbsticks. Also included in the first package is a three month Pro Buddy Pass and the ability to choose your Stadia name with the founder's badge.
