Google announced today their Stadia service which is being called "the future of gaming", it's basically a streaming service like PS Now but with added features, you can stream to your computer, console or smart TV as it's built in to Google Chrome or Youtube. You can use any controller to play too, but there will also be a Stadia controller you can buy (a bit like a Steam controller I guess) that's wi-fi connected and will be able to connect directly to the Stadia service.

I'm.... kinda sceptical, idk it just sounds way too good to be true laugh.gif It's interesting to think of gaming going this way though and it will be amazing if it's true, obviously we don't quite know everything yet.

A streaming service for gaming? Hmm, it might eat into the console side of things a bit and send them towards a cloud function but... Iím not sure.

Firstly, itís yet more things that require online. Secondly, games have so many assets, I think itís a whole different beast to streaming music or TV. Finally, another service under Googleís eye, nah. Fortunately I donít think itíll push out Steam.
