Google Stadia is a new streaming service that will allow top games to be played in 4K resolution like on consoles or on a computer, but without having expensive graphics cards or these devices. It only needs a fast internet connection.
After several months of the announcement, Google finally revealed its plan last night that they want to leave a big mark on the game world.
The Stadia project will come to life this year, and it's a gaming platform that will make it easy for you to play video games in top quality on your TV, cell phone or Internet browser. Basically, we'll play hits like the latest consoles through our Google Chrome. The games will run on Google's servers that will be in charge of the power that is needed for these games to run, and we will not have to think about buying the latest graphics card.
Additionally, Stadia will make it easier to connect with the games via the 'Play' button on YouTube videos. In this way, we will be able to switch from playing a game to the same game without igniting the console, running the game, and understanding that we have to download the patch ... Here Google says we will be able to enter the game in just five seconds.
Players will also have the Crowd Play option to coordinate multiplayer titles, and there's also a tool like Google's Game Assistance Assistant.
As far as the games are concerned, it will be able to run in a 4K resolution at 60 FPS and will be comparable to the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles. We'll need a regular controller for playing, but Google has also introduced its own Wi-Fi controller to their data centers. It also has a streaming key on YouTube and calling the Assistant.
What should be pleasing to the players is that over 100 gaming companies have Stadia's development tools to include their games and support for this service. But Google has announced that it will bring its own titles to Stadia, which means that they are thrown into just the release of games.
Google did not reveal how much Stadia will cost, but it's not a controller.
But in this, they are not alone. Microsoft is working on its own platform for streaming games, and Sony and Nvidia already have their own services, while Amazon is also included in this market.
