Google Stadia is a cloud gaming service created by Google. And what’s the hype here? Google claims that Stadia is able to steam video games in 4K resolution at 60FPS with just 25Mbit per second internet speed. You will be able to play your favorite games from every device PC, smartphone, Tablet, smart TV and with Googles own creation consoles that gamers are actually excited about and say it looks very promising. Its even integrated with YouTube and has a “state share” function that will allow viewers of the Stadia stream to launch a game on the service on the same exact save state as the streamer, how cool is that?
Many say that Google Stadia is the Beta version of gaming future and we are more eager than ever to see it launch and explore all its capabilities. So when will that be possible?
Here is a Googloe Stadia twitter account tweet that was tweeted on May 24:
The price of Google Stadia is abviousley a major factor here. It will determin if Stadia will be viable keeping in nmind how many streaming services and digital gamers are in the market.
Other major factor is the arrangements that Google has with game developers, which developers are on the same side with Stadia and will there be excclusive content that will be created just of Stadia.
Chief Marketing Officer of Xbox Mike Nichols aparently is not woried about such huge competitor as Google Stadia and says: “Emerging competirors like Google have a cloud infrastructure, a community with YouTube, but they don’t have content.”
Answering to potential future collaboration between Microsoft and Sony Piers Harding-Rolls said: “Regardless of when and if cloud gaming takes off, securing exclusive titles will continue to be critical for Sony.”
Well the summer is like almost here so all we can do is just wait at the edge of our seats. Wait for more information on this Stadia service that may shift the games industry ecosystem and the process, and cut a hole in the big three industry – Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft.
