Google wants to enter the games business with a streaming video game service. The platform called Stadia is scheduled to be launched this year, as announced by the Internet company on Tuesday.
The idea is that the games actually run on Google’s servers on the net – and are transmitted to users’ devices over a fast Internet connection.
Google has presented a streaming platform for video games. With Stadia – the name of the game – users can play directly and instantly online, the company announced at the Games Developer Conference GDC.
According to this cloud model, a selection of PC games in high 4K resolution should be available. To control Google introduced a controller from its own development.
The game history can also be recorded and transmitted in real time on Google’s video platform Youtube.
With the offer, the company not only competes with providers of game consoles and high-performance gaming PCs, but also with specialized video services such as Twitch from Amazon.
