Google unveiled its new gaming platform today and it was eye-opening, to say the least. A console-less gaming platform that is going to play at 4k and at 60 FPS (frames-per-second). Oh, and it is cross-platform too. So will Google be able to integrate games from $EA, $ATVI, and $TTWO? Or will they have to create their own content?
Speaking of content, that is a huge part of the gaming world. Content creation and streaming. Since Youtube is Google, they already have a great platform to promote content. The kicker here is how much easier content creation can be with Stadia. Now we only heard the good parts, but having the gaming platform and content creation all integrated into one sounds awesome for the community.
There is still a lot to hear about and how the community will look at this news. I see this as a potential game changer if Google can pull it off. Keywords here folks “pull it off”. Mind you Google tried to push hard into Social media and that bombed. This is something they expect to succeed in. Only time will tell if they will, but I believe Google is the only one to be able to pull off a game changer like this.
