Google has officially announced Stadia; an all new game-streaming platform for all to enjoy. The announcement was made official during GDC and has everyone talking. Stadia will be an all new cloud-based gaming platform that brings streaming and creating all in one package. Connectivity seemed to be at the forefront of Google’s announcement, and I am very interested to see all the integrated options that were announced during the live stream event.

Stadia is not a dedicated console or set-top box like we have become accustomed to. The new platform will be accessible over the internet on a number of different platforms: browsers, computers, TVs, and mobile devices were some of the platforms mentioned. In an onstage demonstration of Stadia, Google showed someone playing a game on a Chromebook, then playing it on a phone, then immediately playing it on PC, picking up where the game left off in real time.

It will be interesting to see if this “idea” or “platform” turns into something major within the gaming community…. Google Stadia launches later this year.

Google is Getting Ready to Take the Plunge Into Gaming!

In case you missed my latest podcast, give it a listen above as I discuss Google entering the gaming market. This week, Google is planning on unveiling whatever they have been working on in terms of a gaming console and it has me very intrigued. Will it be a streaming box? Can it survive on 3rd party support alone? What will it look like and how is Sega involved? Check it out and let me know what YOU think about this.

Color me excited google.

Google — GDC 2019 Teaser Trailer

Join us March 19, 2019 10AM PDT live at https://g.co/gdcreveal19 as we unveil Google’s vision for the future of gaming.

This is the quote that Google has cryptically given following this teaser trailer. Looks like we will find out in one week what Google is cooking up and I couldn’t be more excited. I am thrilled that more companies are entering the gaming scene and I am VERY eager to see how they choose to deliver the goods (I’m guessing games as service with some sort of subscription model).

Between this, the MadBox, PS5, the next XBOX and Nintendo, the next two years should be interesting.

We have rumored it previously BUT, it appears as though Google is set to announce their rumored video game hardware at this years GDC event. According to a source over at 9to5google, they had the following to say about this mysterious home console:

According to a source familiar with the matter, next month’s event — which Google calls a “keynote” — will feature both the game streaming service powered by the Project Stream technology, and hardware to go along with it.

Interesting news to say the least. I am both intrigued and skeptical. We will see what happens in a few weeks time. Google’s GDC keynote is on March 19th at 10AM.

Your move now google.
