Original article: Google unveiled its cloud gaming platform, Stadia, at GDC 2019. The on-stage demos looked interesting, but Google was scarce on details about pricing, game availability, and more.

What will Google show off?
Google has extensively shown off the Stadia controller at its GDC 2019 debut and I/O 2019. Now, we’re hopefully going to learn about when the gaming platform will be available, how much users will have to pay to play, and what games will be available at launch.
A report came out yesterday, hinting that two of the games coming to Stadia include Ubisoft’s Destiny 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The report also claims that Stadia will offer cross-platform saves for Destiny 2. This feature would allow users to play the hit game at home on their game console or PC and then pick it up while on the go using their smartphone or Chromebook.
