Google started this morning sending Stadia Founder's Edition. As the game streaming service does not start until 9 AM PT tomorrow, Stadia Codes will not be sent until tomorrow.
Those who pre-ordered during the Stadia Connect livestream on June 6 will start receiving their "Your Google Store Order Has Shipped" email. It will include final delivery guidance and the possibility to "track delivery" with the carrier. Google started charging payment methods over the weekend, while others encountered some problems with that step.
Strangely, the first delivery reports from buyers ordered in July and September. As of this morning, there are no reports of Canadian or European customers who have sent their units yet.
Players scheduled to receive the Grundare edition on Tuesday will receive their Stadia code to activate the service after 6 p.m. 9 AM. Everyone else receives the 16-digit invitation immediately after an order has been sent. Once you get the code, enter it in the Stadia app for Android or iOS and claim your Stadia name.
The three months of Stadia Pro included in the package allow you to play games in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. This is the highest quality offered by Google, while next year's free Stadia Base is limited to 1080p.
Both editions have a Stadia Controller which contains a USB-C to USB-A cable and power adapter, as well as Chromecast Ultra. The streaming dongle that connects to your TV has a plug with built-in Ethernet port.
The Founder's Controller is a limited edition night blue, while the premiere is clearly white, but both have Stadia's orange accents under the thumbs. The first package also includes a Buddy Pass with three months of Pro and the ability to choose your Stadia name with the founder Badge.
