Google is fixing to embark into uncharted territories in the gaming industry with their streaming platform, Stadia. They believe the future of gaming lies with streaming. Although many are resistant to the idea — particularly PC and console users — the technology is promising. Can Google realize a dream that many are thinking is impossible? Well, we’re about to find out.

It was just confirmed recently that the Founder’s Edition of Google Stadia will be available on November 19 for those who went ahead and pre-ordered. This package includes a lot of things, such as three months of Stadia Pro, an exclusive Night Blue Stadia controller, a power adapter, Google Chromecast Ultra, and a Founder’s badge. All in all, it’s a pretty decent package that many are interesting in getting their hands on.

Those who pre-ordered will receive a confirmation code from Google that enables them to set up their Pro account. With this subscription, members will be able to play with 4K capabilities at 60 FPS with 5.1 surround sound. It seems like a good deal, but can users actually enjoy their gaming experiences without lag?

That’s the main question surrounding Stadia. The company has went on record saying they’ll be accounting for lag with negative latency. If you’ve never heard that term before, you’re certainly not alone. In fact, it probably has never been used in the gaming industry before.

It’s just a fancy way of saying that in a couple of year’s time, Google will be able to predict gamers’ inputs to account for possible lag. This all sounds great, but putting it into practice is a huge milestone that Google will have to spend some time mastering.

For those lucky enough to have pre-ordered the Founder’s Edition, there are a lot of great games at launch. These include Red Dead Redemption 2, Doom Eternal,  and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Google is doing everything they can to make sure Stadia doesn’t flop at launch.

In just a couple of weeks, we’ll find out just what the Stadia is capable of. Everything seems to be clicking along just fine for the company, but there will more than likely be issues at launch. There are problems with every major system like this, especially one that involves streaming games over a shared server. If Google wants Stadia to be successful long-term, they’ll have to address glaring issues as soon as possible. Either way, the landscape of gaming is about to change.
