Google wowed the world when it unveiled its new game streaming service, Stadia, on Tuesday.
Depending on how Google plays it, Stadia could take the internet giant’s business model to an entirely new level that it’s struggled to reach for years.
Right now, the speculation is that Google’s forthcoming game streaming service will make consumers pay to play.
“In a perfect world for Google, it would be an ad-based model as the company isn’t that successful in ‘for-pay’ services,” Moorhead said.
And if Google does opt to charge consumers directly to play games on Stadia, it will have to make some important decisions.
Still, Haggstrom thinks having ad space within Stadia games could be a compelling offer for game publishers.
Google’s Buser said he’s already been sharing Stadia’s revenue model with game developers to help get them on board.
“Some games can take years to make so in order to get a game developer to create for your platform you have to show them that it’s going to be financially viable for them,” Buser said.
