Weekend poll: Do you plan on signing up for Stadia Pro?

It might have slipped under your radar, but Google's game streaming service Stadia formally launches in just a couple of days, on November 19th. Unfortunately, not everyone who pre-ordered one of the early editions will get it on day one, but at least the twelve launch titles include a few big names like Red Dead Redemption 2 and the latest Tomb Raider titles.
