Black Friday sale!!!... NOT! The way everything in the Stadia documentation states, says that there will be Pro discounts regularly. That's all we're seeing right now. 

 

I hope there's actually a Black Friday sale coming, but since it's Friday already, I'm not going to hold my breath waiting. It really stinks to have discounts that are supposed to be a regular feature of the platform and try to pass those discounts off as a Black Friday sale, especially when the discounts don't come anywhere near the prices that other platforms are offering. 

 

This is a huge disappointment so far.

Come on @OriginalMarvX! 🙂

For example in France with Final Fantasy XV, on November 19th its price was €29.99 in Stadia Pro offers and today for the black Friday it is still €29.99 (same observation for all the other games in the Stadia Pro list). 

Can you tell me where is the black Friday sale? 🙂

@Ratgax don't worry! My post wasn't target to you 🙂

But to other many many messages around this thread.. 

Me too in the beginning I misunderstand the original post.. I was to excited to find other sales on black Friday, but after some day I realized and read more better the Grace's post.

I will wait for other sales and new games! Next one for me will be Darksiders 🙂

@Gutom it's so simple.. the "Black Friday sale" starts on 19th November until 3rd December 🙂

On attendait tous un Black Friday avec plein d'offre, peu avaient compris que vos réductions étaient déjà proposées...Et pendant que tout le monde est déçu vous êtes tous en weekend chez Stadia...

@OriginalMarvX nah... no problem!!!

I'm being somewhat sarcastic but I'm not angry, not worried, I try to have fun with my games (have I told you how much I like Gylt).

But Grace should do a waaaaaay better work to explain what happens with those deals... as said Xevioso before... the PRO deals are part of Stadia Founders and Dont-know-what offer...

We pay to have acces to PRO games... AND to have PRO special offers, and that's the epigraph of those deals in the app. They seem to say... "hey I know you want Black Friday deals... after all you've bought our lies and we love you... but... there's the poing: we're gonna give you the deals you paid for, the Pro deals, and we're also telling you that... perhaps those are the Black friday deals. Aren't you happy, human??"

Come on... slappy community work

@Sukiki Just ask to Rockstar to sell at lower price on Stadia platform 😉 I asked them too!! 

Community Member

That's the first disappointing thing with stadia. Like others I expected a real one day long promotion. 

 

I hope next year, you'll have learned from the mistakes

It would be nice that beyond the discounts there were new games!

Well, like others already pointed out... is Friday. @GraceFromGoogle been checking my app impatiently, but can't see any difference yet... is there going to be a "Black Friday" section ? If any at all?

Community Member
Anyone see any of the Black Friday deals yet? I can't seem to find any
Community Member

Hi,

I looked in the app "in the pro section" but I don't see special black friday offer. It seems that the game with a special offer are the same than a few das before Black Friday

According to an official reply on Twitter last night there will indeed be a sale. There's no mention of when though.upload_2019-11-29_9-13-15.png

I don’t see the Black Friday deals. Where are they at?

@Bakken thanks for the information but BF is supposed to be Friday lol so I was expecting some things this morning^^.

Anyway I'll keep checking.

This was on their Twitter about 30 minutes ago translated from Spanish "Hi , we do not have official information to share about your query, you can check the prices and discounts available directly in your games catalog from the Stadia application. Cheers!"

So their official Twitter account cannot give an official statement on there being a sale or not.

Another example of the bad communication so far for Stadia

@SSBGokuIt's not live yet.

@eenangelAs long as it shows up at all, I don't care if it's 00:00 or 3PM.

Founder

@TheOldGuyThat's very strange indeed. Of course, one of the multilingual responses told us that games bought at discounted prices would be removed if we cancelled if we stopped subscribing.

@Bakken probably just a bot replying on Twitter

If there are end up being no Black Friday deals here, that would be extremely disappointing. A good way to save face would then be to simply offer a Cyber Monday sale instead. It'd give some extra time to finalize prices to match other systems and make the people here, who are signed up for Stadia for 3 months minimum anyway, maybe think about sticking around for longer and referring friends by showing you have a community forum that the Stadia team does listen to.

@Stormtrooper I don't think we will hear anything official on this community until Monday, they only appear to be here Monday to Friday during the day on US PST. Their last post in the announcement section pretty much says so.

Community Member

So when are these sales going live? Other outlets are ready to take my money and yes black Friday. The only additional sale I see is nba2k20. Is that it?

Community Member

Anybody see anything on sale for Black Friday?

@Bakken I hope that’s not the case with losing the games you purchased at a discount while on Stadia Pro. I’m not saying I’ll leave Stadia Pro but if I ever decided to not pay that monthly fee then I’ll be pissed if I can’t play the games that I PAID for!

@SSBGokuIt's not, sorry I should have clarified. It was a communications error from the (I think) Italian Twitter-responder. Google clarified this shortly after.

joke, of course... ❤️

BF deals are not coming... too bad 

Community Member

The lack of a real BF sale has been a big disappointment. 

Community Member

Not seeing anything on sale today "Black Friday" that wasn't on sale three plus days ago.  Am I missing something?

Community Member
You're not missing anything... BF deals are not coming.. the deals that are in the store right now are the best you will get..you will have to deal with it..
Community Member

@GraceFromGoogle 

All the deals are the same as the been all week

What will be on sale for Black Friday and/or when will the new prices reflect in the store?

Thank you ❤️

Community Member


it was clear from the start, PRO users were entitled to discounts on certain titles in the catalog, regardless of other promotions..... black friday is another thing

Community Member
Was also waiting for gylt on discount is it worth it to pay full price ?

Well, BF going on and.. another flop! Congrats for the amazing team and great communication. I know a lot of turkey can do that sometimes

What's everyone buying?  I'm deciding between Metro Exodus and Final Fantasy. Is Tomb Raider any good?

Community Member
Will go for tomb raider...

Good way to make us all feel burned Grace. Pro Deals which were always a part of your marketing strategy, is NOT a Black Friday sell. Not addressing The hundreds of people who commented saying they were looking forward to the sale and then not giving it to them on the day of, is the worst public relations move a company could see coming. Why should any of us feel secure in investing in Stadia when you have proven to be, inane, corrupt, and greedy. Didn’t Google pride itself on NOT being evil? I want to say this to you cos I have a feeling I may not get another chance to. All you have to do is not lie to us. We get it, we’re bata testers now, if it’s not 4K, tell us, if it’s not the highest settings, Tell us, address Chromecast overheating, FPS issues, data lag (especially with proximity to a data center) just tell us. If people don’t like the real deal at least you told them upfront. Instead you just make the consumer mad, AND feel lied to. JUST TELL US! That’s all.

Soo there were no black Friday sales that I saw ☹️

You guys just added 2k20, how about call of duty?

Hey Google, you suck. Your marketing sucks. Your deals suck. And so far, Stadia sucks, too.

I expected to get better quality than current gen consoles and fair priced games with Stadia.. Instead the image quality is barely on par with PS4 Pro and XB1X and the prices are a bad joke compared to other digital marketplaces.

I mean, you could get the XB1 version of Red Dead Redemption 2 for 20€ on Black Friday! That version runs in native 4k with full details! Stadia charging 60€ for a visibly worse version is close to impertinence.

Google needs to higher a whole new Stadia crew. This group of people are the most inept people ever, especially @GraceFromGoogle . learn when to post things, gage reactions and expectations, if what you said and what you meant are different proceed to clarify, waiting til the day of and doing damage control is unexceptional. When google kills Stadia know it’s entirely the project managers and and representatives fault, all because you refuse to be honest with us. I don’t want to give you guys a single penny more until you start making real course corrections.

Any news about this?

@GraceFromGoogle Way to go in misleading founder customers!!  Bull**bleep** click bait posts about Black Friday discounts.  Buck your ideas up and post accurate things or you will get sacked and stadia will fail!!!

  • The fact that regular pro-priced games are being passed off as black Friday deals is disappointing.  What would be more disappointing is if they are telling the truth and the current discounts are for Black Friday, and normal pro-discounted games will be more sparse in the future.  The pricing for Stadia games are already terrible, representing a 25-50% mark-up from brick and mortar pricing such as GameStop.  Even Target is way more competitive than Stadia on video game pricing.  @GraceFromGoogle can you please provide some clarity on why this thread was named "Black Friday Sales for Stadia Pro Subscribers"?  Most people are disappointed and feel lied to.  Thanks!
