Plex started as a way to organize and stream your media library, but it has since expanded to include live TV, ad-supported streaming video, and Tidal music, among other things. Now, Plex is dipping its toe into gaming. The new Plex Arcade service lets you stream a collection of classic Atari games to your devices. More interestingly, you can also stream your collection of classic game ROMs. However, Plex Arcade won't be free—it's $5 per month for regular users and $3 per month for Plex Pass subscribers.
Another day and we've got more Stadia news! We have new details on the Free Play weekend for the all-new Madden NFL 21 plus three titles joining Stadia Pro next month and three other new games to the platform this week!
Don't you hate it when something you're looking forward to gets announced without a date and you're left waiting months without so much as a peep as to when it'll come? For the ten-year-old reboot of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game on Stadia — well, maybe it shouldn't have taken this long — but it's finally time to welcome this classic back.
While the 2020 gaming news cycle has been dominated by the launch of consoles from Microsoft and Sony, there have been notable developments in the cloud gaming space as well. The latest update comes from Amazon's streaming service, Luna, which is now available to play on select Android smartphones.
Google seems to have massively underestimated the demand for its Cyberpunk 2077 promotion on Stadia. The company has announced that it has had to close its offer of free prerequisite gaming hardware to those who ordered the game about halfway through its intended campaign period.
One of the big selling points of Stadia is that users can log on and play games right from the Stadia website (provided they use the Chrome browser, of course). However, the interface there has remained simple to the point of frustration for some players. A new home page design appears to be rolling out now that improves the situation somewhat — although there's still no search bar in sight.
Google has been steadily adding more games to Stadia over the past year. Today, the cloud gaming service announced more titles and content coming to the platform, including Valkyria Chronicles 4 and Submerged: Hidden Depths. Plus, Google is teaming up with Thunderful Games to create a new title that will only be playable on Stadia.
