Game On!

Streaming entertainment on VAIO

(Part 1)

Welcome to the first of a two-part series about streaming all your entertainment on VAIO. Let’s start by taking a look at the world of video games. VAIOs are great to play on because they are so light. You can find a spot that is comfortable in your house and just go!

So are you ready to take lockdown cloud gaming to the next level? Well, VAIO and Google Stadia are here for you. Launched late last year to stellar reviews that only keep getting better, Stadia allows you to play free for one month with a monthly subscription thereafter. Here is how you get started.

Stadia Gaming


First, while all of the system requirements pass for the current VAIO series, if you have a different PC or just want to make sure, check them with this handy performance testing tool. Once that box is ticked, fire up your Google account as Stadia will be linked to your Gmail address and played on a Chrome browser.

Things are pretty basic after that if you are familiar with gaming. You will be asked what level of access you want, to agree to terms of service, to pick an avatar with a name, and to set up privacy settings. (You will need to enter payment information should you choose the “Pro Trial” for a 30-day access to try the platform.) Easy, right?

Let the fun begin! While there will be a number of games available at no cost with the 30-day trail, you can also purchase and play great games like Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2), PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), GYLT, and Trails Rising. Of course, there are tons more including Relicta, Wave Break, but take some time browsing the catalog and find your favorite.

(All of these can be played using the controller you already have linked to your VAIO via Bluetooth, but you may also consider purchasing the controller offered by Google.)

Gaming on a PC has never been so accessible and comfortable as it is on VAIO’s lightweight yet powerful laptops. VAIO’s exclusive TruePerformance technology lets you settle in for a session without the worry of bottlenecking speeds or overheating.

So why not head over to VAIO and pick your next gaming weapon of choice?
