I’ve been very hesitant with Google’s cloud-based gaming service but I’ve enjoyed the time I spent playing Immortals Fenyx Rising last month and the idea that I don’t have to worry about day-one patches or waiting to have the game download are looking really enticing to me. Paired with the fact I don’t have to lug around a console and the ability to play anywhere with only a controller is making the decision mighty easy for me.
So, I decided to try out Stadia with Cyberpunk 2077 – it’s a perfect time to jump in. If you want to know why I say that, it’s because if you purchase the game on Stadia, you might be eligible to receive a Stadia Premiere Edition. New users who sign up on Stadia get $10 off their first purchase, and anyone who buys Cyberpunk 2077 before Dec. 18 gets a free Stadia Premiere Edition to play on their TV
