In order make the new cloud service even more appealing—which comes with a great bundle of games, by the way—for new customers, Google has decided to bundle the Stadia Controller together with Chromecast, making the purchase of the whole package $19 cheaper than if you were to buy the two products separately.
The Chromecast controller, which creates a direct link between your TV and phone/tablet, can be bought in three different colors: “Snow,” “Sky,” and “Sunrise.” Purchased on its own, the Chromecast can be had for $49.99, while the Stadia Controller comes in at $69. Together, they combine into a $99 “Play and Watch with Google TV” package, which has been available since July 30.
While it already runs on Wi-Fi and has minimal latency for gaming, the Google Store also sells an Ethernet Adapter (originally created as a Chromecast accessory) for a wired and maximally stable connection. As a matter of fact, you can even buy a “Play and Watch with Google TV Package Plus Ethernet Adapter” bundle from the Google Store for $109.98.
Together, the Chromecast and Stadia Controller combine into the perfect leisure and entertainment package for you to both play your favorite games and relax with the best movies and shows on offer, all from the same couch and TV.
