Google's VP for Stadia has confirmed that games you buy will stay in your library, even if the game is removed from sale.
That is how it normally goes for most other services out there. The main problem with Stadia is Google themselves, they are know for ending projects/services in the blink of a eye.
The link provides pricing on EE new 5G router £75 for 100gb, so going off Phil Harrison approx 16gb of data per hour for 4k 60fps your EE data package will last you about 2 days. Especially if playing somerhing like skyrim, hzd, 80 plus hours of days gone etc. This is why streaming services are DOA. 5/10 years from now sure but now, not a chance. https://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2...
What about when they close up shop after a year or so, what then, they'll keep running the servers as a good will gesture, gtfo.
That's the standard, since Steam and the like already do that. What remains to be seen is how long will this service last and what happens when it's done. I predict you'll be sh*t out of luck.
It's not guaranteed. It's not even in any license agreement I know about. Quite the opposite really, since the terms of service stipulate they can strip the game from you at any time for any reason. But, most publishers and devs do understand that doing so would be detrimental to digital sales going forward, which is why it's exceedingly rare for games to be made unavailable.
Gamers will still be with current systems, Sony will position themselves for steaming ps6 onwards and get things in place (4k etc) during the ps5 era (streaming is still too soon, but will happen eventually) Ms and Sony will rule the streaming space not Google
