Haven't got mine yet, but my founders also hasn't shipped yet. Payed Sunday so hopefully I'll get a shipping notification soon. But it'll get here when it gets here I guess.
(UK based) Same boat as you, payment taken on Sunday but still no notification on the order being placed or the item being shipped. i called Google and they stated that my item should hopefully ship tomorrow. original pre-order was placed on the 7th June, estimated delivery date Nov 21st. Hopefully to get it before then!! 🙂
It was mentioned that we'll get the code after our order was shipped, no earlier than 9am Pacific. I didn't think I'd get it right on the dot though. Most likely it will be sent in waves. At least we get access to the community now so we can get hyped together 🙂
That's crazy that people are getting their kits before codes.
What happened to codes being sent in conjunction with units getting shipped?
It's disheartening. I've preordered other Google products day one (Pixel phones, Google Hub) and those all arrived prior to the listed shipping date. I assumed it would be the same for Stadia.
Clearly, I assumed wrong.
Its really annoying seeing people who didn't preorder until September post their shipping notices on Reddit months after those of us who preordered day one.
That's like...the WORST CASE SCENARIO you could have lol received the hardware...but can't use it (at least not as originally intended that is). Hopefully you find your code in your inbox later today, or that will be a disappointing package to arrive home to.
Why is it not possible to send the code at the same time to all pre-ordering customers? 😞
That makes me feeling sad about google project STADIA...
