Google Stadia announcement sees Nintendo, Sony stocks drop

Google Chrome To Add Support For Nintendo Switch Controller

The news comes just after Google announced its gaming platform, Stadia on Monday.

That figure, according to Google executive Phil Harrison, who spoke to IGN after the announcement, is 30 megabits per second. The game can then be streamed instantly onto the player's desktop, laptop, phone or TV screen. It will also come with its own optional controller, which connects via WiFi, or gamers can use their own controllers.

Google recently entered the $140 billion gaming industry by launching Stadia, a cloud-gaming service.

Game streaming is a new race to see which company offers the first hit product that catches on with the masses.

First it was Microsoft planning a cloud-powered game streaming service.

Will cross-platform play be available in every game?

He said he also informed the committee that Kushner complies with all protocols involving classified information. Lowell responded Thursday to Cummings' letter, which he said is " not completely accurate about what was said".

Games would operate on the servers of Google, receiving commands from a user's controller.

The only requirement for the Stadia is a high-speed internet connection with low latency.

The controller also includes a button for Google Assistant, so players can look up walkthroughs or hints without disturbing their gameplay.

Google also has something exclusively for the developers; introducing an unbelievable way of applying company/individual own design style to different titles on Stadia. "For mobile game developers, this presents the opportunity to create games for a more diversified audience than ever before". In 2018, over 50 billion hours of gaming content was viewed on YouTube, hence, Google designed Stadia so users can highlight, capture, and share moments straight to YouTube. A feature in Stadia called Crowd Play is responsible for that. The Labs have around 6000 employees who dedicate their working hours exclusively to improving Walmart's digital branch.

As convenient as Stadia sounds, Google is yet to release a price for the controller and the service, so its accessibility in terms of cost can still be questioned.
