Google and Apple have been constant rivals and both these companies have decided to enter the gaming markets at almost the same time! Apple is all set to enter the gaming world with Apple Arcade while Google Stadia has been in the news for some time now – but both these gaming platforms are all set to come out in Fall 2019. It will be interesting to see who wins this battle as both these tech giants go head-to-head.
Has anyone read a really good comparison breakdown of Stadia vs. Arcade? 🕹

Google Stadia vs Apple Arcade: Which is Better?
Apple has already announced that they are going to launch a collection of over 100 games upon launch. These would include Sonic Racing, LEGO Brawls and Oceanhorn 2 to name a few. Google Stadia, on the other hand, has also promised some action-packed names including NBA 2K games, Doom Eternal and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to begin with.
While Apple Arcade is already live in over 150 nations across the globe, Google Stadia is yet to be launched but will be available only in the Europe, US, UK and Canada regions to begin with.
maybe i’m being short sighted but i don’t particularly think apple arcade and google stadia are in the same business at all, so it’s weird to me that there’s all this “arcade vs. stadia” talk when they’re catering to two completely different demographics

Google Stadia vs Apple Arcade Price Difference
Price is an important factor when it comes to this rivalry between Google Stadia vs Apple Arcade. Stadia Pro costs $9.99 a month while Apple is offering Arcade subscriptions at $4.99 a month. However, Google has made a very interesting statement recently, stating that ‘Stadia Base’ will be a free platform open to all which will be launched next year!
