Today Google Just announced a new gaming service, that will utilize the power of the internet to allow players to directly play any game seamlessly.
Stadia currently stream video at 1080p at 60 frames per second, however later this year when Stadia officially launches it should be capable of 4K video at 60 frames per second.
The news came from a press event during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. This new service is called Stadia.
Google did not announce how much the service will cost, however, the system will work with existing streaming equipment. Such as your PC, Phone, Tablet and TV using the Chrome Cast system.
The games are powered by Google’s high-performance computers, which then streams the images to the web browser in a similar way Netflix streams videos.
Google has developed a controller that connects through Wi-Fi to Stadia’s systems. The Stadia controller is designed to connect directly to the internet to ensure the fastest connection.
However, Google claims that players can use any existing controller they have to play games over Stadia systems.
Google has partnered with Ubisoft and used Assassins Creed Odyssey as a demonstration. However, Google has also announced its own gaming studio.
Right now we don’t know the cost of the service. Will it be free and we buy the games we want. Or will it be a subscription service where we will have to pay a monthly fee to have the service? We also don’t know the price of the controller however our guess is that it will be less than $40 dollars, considering you can use your own controller.
We will continue to follow this developing service by Google.
