• Google Announces Stadia



    So Google is at the annual Game Developers Conference this week, and yesterday announced this nifty game controller—which can be used with their brand-new gaming platform, Stadia. Set to launch sometime this year in the US, Canada, UK and Europe, the service promises the following:

    Game where you want, when you want.
    Play across multiple devices, including laptops, desktops, and selected phones and tablets.

    Up to 4K HDR at 60 FPS.
    Enjoy gaming the way you like it, with beautiful HDR graphics and smooth frame rates.

    Play instantly.
    No updates, no downloads. Dive right into the game.

    New ways to play via YouTube and beyond.
    Go from watching a video to playing a game in seconds, with even more innovative experiences to come for selected games.

    Always getting better.
    Stadia's cloud-based infrastructure evolves to meet the demands of players, developers and YouTube creators.
    Stadia's secret weapon is, of course, its wide device support: if it delivers as promised, you'll be able to play AAA titles on Android, Chrome and Chromecasts at the very least, using either a controller or keyboard and mouse. Unfortunately I can't yet confirm if touch input is also supported.

    If anyone can pull this off it's probably Google—in fact, the only weak link that comes to mind would be the end user's Internet connection. If you want to be notified when Stadia becomes available you can sign up at the second link below.

      Problem is after 2 years they'll give up and walk away like they they do with most of their applications.
