YouTube Premium subscribers receiving Stadia Premiere gaming kits from Google


With the gaming industry’s eyes on Sony and Microsoft for their respective next-generation console launches this week, Google attempts to promote its game streaming platform in a surprising way. Folks who are active subscribers of their YouTube Premium service will reportedly receive a Stadia Premiere Edition bundle, which is currently valued at $100. As it stands right now, many gamers appear to be still hesitant regarding cloud-based gaming service. Thus, it could be a form of publicity for the internet search outfit.

The package includes everything one needs to get started – a Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra. Those hoping it would be the latest model are out of luck because it is the previous generation version without Google TV. This is understandable given the latest one does not support the manufacturer’s game streaming service just yet. Instead, owners should wait until a new update is released sometime in the first half of 2021.
