TECH NEWS – Gamesindustry reports that „all will be revealed” by Google during their presentation that will be held in a month… but what will the company show?
Two possibilities come to mind – one of them could be Google Stream. It would be Google‘s streaming solution to compete against Sony’s PlayStation Now, Microsoft’s xCloud, or Electronic Arts’ Project Atlas, which are either available or are in development. Last Autumn, the company tested it in the United States with the help of Ubisoft, who provided them Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey that could have been played via a Google Chrome browser, given the beta tester had a 25+ Mbit Internet connection. The beta was called successful.
The other possibility is slightly more farfetched, but it can happen: we’re talking about the Yeti game streaming platform, which was apparently shown behind closed doors during last year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC). The rumours say that the company plans a standalone streaming console and controller, but it could also work with the Google Chromecast as well.
This year’s GDC will launch on March 18, and Google‘s keynote will be held a day later. Both options point towards streaming, so we are likely to see that. At least – given you have a decent Internet connection – you could play any game without a powerful PC or console…
