For 20 years, Google has been working to bring information from around the world into our hands. Immediate delivery of information has been made possible through the data centers and network capabilities, and now it's time to take advantage of this technology to change the way we have access to and enjoy the video games.
Stadia is a new platform for video games that provides instant access to favorite games of users on any type of screen such as TV, laptop, desktop, tablet and smartphone. Google's goal is to provide up to 4K @ 60fps resolution with HDR and surround sound. It will be launched later this year in selected countries in Europe, USA, Canada and the United Kingdom.
To build Stadia, the company thought well what it means to be a gamer and tried to unite two different worlds: those who play games and those who like to watch them. Stadia will lift the constraints that exist in the games we play and the communities that watch them
Taking advantage of Google's global data center network, Stadia will release gamers from the limitations of traditional game consoles and PCs. When gamers use Stadia they will have access to their games at any time and literally on every screen. Game creators will have access to almost limitless resources for the development of games that have always dreamed of. It is an all-powerful hardware that combines graphics processor, processor, memory and server-level storage space with the power guaranteed by Google's infrastructure.
Google Data Centers guarantee Stadia, but what makes it stand out is the way it communicates with other Google services. In a world where there are more than 200 million people watching daily gaming content on YouTube, Stadia makes it possible to play them at the touch of a button. If you watch someone playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, just hit the Play button. In seconds you will be filming in Ancient Greece and you will normally play without downloads, no updates, no patches, no installation!
But what a gaming platform would be without its own remote control. This is the Stadia controller that was designed based on the gamers' wants on a remote control. First it was ensured that it would communicate directly with the data centers via WiFi for the best possible gaming experience. The remote has a separate button for instant recording, saving and sharing gameplay up to 4K, with a built-in microphone and a separate Google Assistant button.
