And that price is currently a free month of Stadia Pro It's hard to believe, but Stadia is almost a year old now. Despite reaching this milestone, Google's cloud gaming service hasn't exactly taken off into the mainstream just yet.

Google's game hardware still hasn't seen many discounts to date Stadia controllers are notoriously expensive compared to comparable gamepads at $69, and they don't go on sale very often, either. But today, both the controller itself and the Premiere Edition kit that includes a controller and a Chromecast Ultra — usually $100 — are 20 percent off.

Recently, cloud gaming gained a huge competitor when Microsoft launched Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offering over 100 games free to play with your subscription.

Audeze Mobius Gaming Headset review

audeze-mobius-gaming-headset-review

If you’ve never heard of Audeze before, it’s most likely because you’re not an audiophile. This high-end headphone maker has made a name for itself by using planar magnetic drivers over dynamic drivers used in traditional headphones. By utilizing planar magnetic technology Audeze is able to provide large drivers with enhanced clarity and detail. Unfortunately, this technology is not cheap; a pair of Audeze headphones can potentially set you back thousands of dollars. However, in recent years, Audeze has branched out into gaming headsets, which are much more affordable in comparison. For example, the Mobius headset provided to us for review starts at $400. That’s still pretty expensive, but when it comes to planar magnetic headphones from Audeze, this is one of

However, with the recent introduction of cloud gaming, one of those topics has resurfaced, but in a new way.
