If you’re out of the loop on the Stadia, let us catch you up. Stadia is a streaming service that will allow people to play big-name and high-end games without having to own the latest or greatest hardware, software, or fancy gadgets.
It’s expected to launch this year, releasing first in the US, Canada, UK, and Europe.
Stadia aims to eradicate downloads, patches, and wait times. Google want to bring Stadia to almost every single ‘screen’. At launch, the list of screens will include desktops, laptops, TVs, and phones. Stadia would have no console to limit ideas or where gamers can play. All of the hard work would be done in Google’s cloud service.
Stadia will support most game controllers, meaning you can use virtually any pre-existing game controller you may have on a device.
However, Google will also have their own controller for the Stadia, aptly named the “Stadia Controller”. The controller is WiFi enabled to seamlessly connect to any device you want to play on.
