PlayStation Could Have Fresh Competition in Stadia, Google's New Game Streaming Platform

The Stadia controller, which is optional, connects to Google's streaming data centres directly over wifi, for limiting latency.

Google reckons that they've got the problem licked, and after last year's showing of Assassin's Creed Odyssey running in a Chrome tab, the results look promising.

Google's new streaming platform could also focus heavily on game streamers. During Tuesday's presentation, Google said you won't have to download or install games, instead playing by streaming on devices such as laptops, PCs, TVs, tablets and even phones.

Unreal Engine: Epic Games' official support for Stadia means you'll have access to the latest technology and features of the world's most powerful creation engine. AMD's processors come with much more L3 cache than Intel's models, but it is possible the processor could also come with the new Zen 2 microarchitecture that will debut with the Ryzen 3000-series processors.

Search giant Google has just lifted the lid on its cloud gaming service, known as Stadia. The advantage is that it will detect and connect directly via Wi-Fi to whatever game you are playing on whatever screen. Unique to the Stadia controller is a button to capture and share videos directly to YouTube and another to access the Google Assistant. Stadia will be able to stream games in 4K, 60FPS at launch, but eventually it'll support up to 8K.

The new Stadia service is built for gamers of all backgrounds. Pricing was not announced at the first announcement for Stadia, but by the time you read this, it'll likely be clear through Google's Stadia online portal.

The service itself is a massive expansion of Project Stream, which was essentially Google's beta test for Stadia.

Computing power in data centers and devices from televisions to smartphones has surged and streaming technology has advanced, providing tools to break blockbuster titles from confines of consoles or personal computers.

Unlike what many expected, it will be a streaming platform and not a console.

Raymond provided no hints as to what the studio is now working on, but Stadia is expected to go live later this year so I expect we'll see something soon.

Google's reveal is part of an industry-wide push towards cloud-gaming, with several companies vying to become the "Netflix of gaming".
